When we help customers with water damage problems in their homes, we’re often asked whether or not we’ll be able to completely dry out anything that’s been damaged by water. Leaving any moisture behind could possibly lead to more problems in the future, and it’s in everyone’s best interest to make sure that those problems are avoided.
It’s absolutely possible to get all of the water out of your floors, carpets, drywall, and any other part of your home affected by water. As certified members of the IICRC, we follow a set of specific set of standards and procedures to make sure that, one way or another, everything will be completely dry, with no risk of mold or other microbial growth.
Depending on the extent of the damage, that may only require drying equipment in order to remove all of the moisture, or it may call for damaged areas to be removed and replaced with new flooring, drywall, or whatever part of your home was ruined. The distinction between those two options is usually a matter of cost, rather than ability.
While some damage could very possibly be dried safely and effectively, the time and costs associated may be more than the cost of replacement. In those cases, it’s in everyone’s best interest to go with the faster and less expensive course of action.
In either case, we will use our specialty tools and equipment to dry the affected areas, and precisely monitor moisture levels to make sure your home is up to standards. We do our best to leave your home dryer than it was before the incident.
