It is tremendously difficult to overstate the damage water can cause to a home. Because water is liquid, it can seep into places you may not even notice. Even worse, bursting pipes can flood a basement or other area quickly. If your Portage Des Sioux, MO, home has sustained water damage, you may be wondering how long restoration and remediation will take.

The Drying Process

Once you fix a broken pipe, your restoration service will likely begin to dry out your house. In most cases, drying a home takes between two and three days. There are, of course, special circumstances that may lengthen drying time. These can include the following:

  • You have soaked wood floors
  • You live in a humid climate
  • Your home has sustained damage to several areas

Wood floors typically take between seven and 10 days to dry out completely. Restoration technicians usually use large fans to circulate air in the affected areas. Of course, if there are high levels of humidity in your house, drying times can take longer. Since bursting pipes can distribute water over large sections of your home, removing the excess water may extend the drying process as well.

The Restoration Process
When you work with a Portage Des Sioux, MO, restoration service, you can benefit from both expertise and equipment. Chances are good you can neither buy nor rent enough professional grade fans to sufficiently dry out your house. Because restoration technicians understand how to restore the comfort, value and appearance of your home, they are better able to target their efforts to maximize impact.
Few things can destroy a home faster than water damage. Still, you don’t have to be afraid of bursting pipes. When you notice flooding or other water-related damage, you can stop the event from continuing. Then, you may choose to work diligently to mitigate the negative effects of the damage. With the right professionals on your side, you can boost your odds of restoring your home to its pre-flood condition.
