- What about my wet furniture?
- How do I keep track of non-restorable items after a fire at my business?
- How long will it take my property to dry after flooding or other water damage?
The extent of damage and the construction of the furniture will determine if it can be restored. Your furniture must be dried before damage can be adequately assessed. Non-salvageable furniture will be documented for you and if any items need to be discarded, a customer release form will need to be signed.
We recommend you make a list of your facility’s items that are deemed non-restorable. You can obtain a form for this purpose from your insurance company. Make a copy for your insurance company and keep one for yourself.
Drying time after water damage in your home is determined by a combination of factors including the location, duration and source of water; the types of building materials in your home; weather conditions; and how quickly emergency restoration services are started. Through consistent monitoring and evaluation of the drying process, our trained technicians can determine when the drying is complete. For example, your carpet may feel dry to the touch, but padding and subfloors may still be wet underneath. While there are no hard and fast rules to determine how long your property will take to dry, we can tell you it may take between three and five days or more, depending on the conditions.
