- What will you do with my area rugs?
- What would be considered non-insured work?
- How long will it take my property to dry after flooding or other water damage?
Rugs damaged by water will be taken to our warehouse for special treatment and care. They will need to be dried carefully to minimize bleeding of colours and discolouration. Your rugs will be dried, cleaned and returned to your home after the complete drying of the rest of your home is completed.
Any construction project unrelated to your loss is considered non-insured work. At your request, we will provide a separate estimate for non-insured construction projects, and this work will require separate authorization and payment terms. If the non-insured work will delay the completion of an insured portion, then the situation must first be discussed with your Insurance Adjuster and the ServiceMaster Restore Project Manager.
Drying time after water damage in your commercial property is determined by a combination of factors including the location, duration and source of water; the types of building materials in your facility; weather conditions; and how quickly emergency services are started. Through consistent monitoring and evaluation of the drying process, our trained technicians can determine when the drying is complete. For example, carpet may feel dry to the touch, but padding and subfloors may still be wet underneath. While there are no hard and fast rules to determine how long your property will take to dry, we can tell you it may take between three and five days or more, depending on the conditions.
