Water Damage Extraction and Drying are the two most important emergency and immediate actions and are required when you have water damage. Why? Because the longer you wait the more potential structural and health problems you will see in the future.
Standing water must be extracted. Water damaged flooring, baseboards, drywall, and insulation often need to be removed to expose underlying subfloors and wall cavities. Powerful grade drying fans and industrial grade dehumidifiers will be needed to remove moisture from the surfaces and the air.
Structural drying is a process, not a one-time service. With severe damage, drying times of 3 to 5 days are not uncommon. Our trained water-technicians at All South Restoration return regularly to monitor and document the drying progress, adjust equipment and ensure that your home is drying properly.
During this process your home will be extremely noisy with multiple fans and dehumidifiers running. It is best to go ahead and prepare to either deal with the noise or make other living arrangements with your insurance company.
