- How long will it take my property to dry after flooding or other water damage?
All of ServiceMaster Restore teams nationwide are licensed, bonded and insured. You can trust that any of the technicians from our team entering your commercial property will be trained, trustworthy and courteous.
Professional testing with specialized equipment is the correct way to determine if your business property and contents are completely dry. Touch alone may be a false indicator.
Drying time after water damage in your commercial property is determined by a combination of factors including the location, duration and source of water; the types of building materials in your facility; weather conditions; and how quickly emergency services are started. Through consistent monitoring and evaluation of the drying process, our trained technicians can determine when the drying is complete. For example, 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.
