- Will I have access to my belongings while they are in storage?
- If the ceilings are wet, what needs to be done?
- Why are air movers and dehumidifiers used?
Yes, with advance notice we can schedule time for a ServiceMaster Restore Restoration Technician to meet with you and provide access to your requested items. A service charge may apply.
ServiceMaster Restore’s water damage professionals will evaluate moisture content in your ceiling areas to determine the severity of the damage. They may also have to remove some of your ceiling for ventilation purposes. Wet insulation inside the ceiling can also be a hazard and therefore may also need to be removed.
When water damage occurs in your home, the water can be absorbed into the drywall (sheetrock), baseboards, sub-flooring, carpeting, etc. Drying these materials effectively requires high velocity air movers to accelerate the drying process, before mould and other more serious problems occur. The use of professional-standard dehumidifiers are also necessary for removing the excess moisture to create conditions for efficient drying and prevent further damage to your property.
