Why Does the Air in My House Feel Dry?

The humidity levels will balance back out after the temporary effects of the restoration process is completed.

To Stop the Noise, Can Water Remediation Fans Be Turned Off at Night?

We understand the noise can be obnoxious with the unfamiliarity, but it is important to not turn off the equipment. For fast and efficient drying to avoid damage and mold, the equipment needs to run continuously.

Is There a Way to Speed Up the Drying Process?

Some people wonder if they should open the doors and windows during the drying process? Typically, the windows and doors should remain closed. The drying process can be impacted by the outdoor climate conditions. Do not use the HVAC system, ceiling or floor fans, or open any windows or doors unless instructed by the professional.

How Do Restoration Companies Work with Insurance?

Insurance companies have specific methods on how things are handled. Generally, you are permitted to mitigate the problem in an effort to prevent further damage and health concerns. Moving possessions and furniture is also encouraged, but do not throw anything away and make sure to take plenty of pictures. If you know you are covered, get a restoration company out as soon as possible; otherwise call the insurance company first.
