- Can people walk on the area during the drying process?
- Should I open the windows to help the drying process?
- If the ceilings are wet, what needs to be done?
It is strongly suggested that foot traffic is kept to a minimum during the drying process. When necessary, wearing shoes during the drying process is also recommended for safety concerns.
Opening the windows in your commercial property to assist the drying process is not always recommended. Outside weather conditions may vary. Your ServiceMaster Restore technician will determine when and if opening windows to let in outside air is advisable.
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.
