How long will it take to dry out my home?

1/16/2022 (Permalink)

When water damage occurs in your home, we understand there are a lot of questions regarding what the steps look like for cleaning up the mess.  Our goal is to help walk you through this process to make it as seamless as possible.  That being said, we understand why one of your top questions is, “How long will take to dry out the water damage”?  It’s not a clear-cut answer as drying out a structure depends on the severity of the water damaged that occurred and the type of structure.  On average, the drying process will take 3-5 days.  This can vary greatly though, depending on the magnitude of damage, amount of contents affected, any demolition that may be required, and the presence of any hazardous materials. Returning a home to its preloss moisture levels is a closely monitored process, with our professional’s making adjustments to equipment to help ensure the area is recovering as quickly as safely possible.
