Water Damage Q & A: How Long Does it Take for Water Damage to Dry?
When disaster hits your home, your priority is to get everything back to its original condition. So when you have water damage, you want to know how long it will take until you have your peace of mind.
How Long Does It Take for Water Damage to Dry?
We’re often asked this question, but the answer is tricky. In fact, it really depends on the situation.
For a typical water loss, it shouldn’t take more than a couple of days to return your home to normal moisture levels. But there are many factors that can extend—or in some cases, shorten—the overall drying process.
For example, if the area isn’t well-enclosed and is exposed to the outside elements, it can be very difficult to maintain humidity levels. Or in some cases, the homeowner will turn the drying equipment off, which can dramatically hinder the process. And of course, it also depends on how wet the area was to begin with.
Because of these potential factors (and more), it can be difficult to give you an exact completion date. Having said that, our technicians are able to give you an estimated timeline based on their scope and understanding of the job.
