We know that one of the most important questions home owners in Madison have after their home has suffered water damage is, “How long will water damage restoration take?” This can be a loaded question, as every water damage situation is different and the tie it takes to get your home back to normal will depend on many different variable like the size and scope of the damage, the source of the water, and how long the water has been present. That being said, we are going to try to break down the water damage restoration process so we can give you a more accurate estimation of how long it may take.
The most important step in water damage restoration is drying the water completely. A safe assumption for drying time is 72 hours. Keep in mind, though, that the time it takes to dry out water damage depends on:
Because water damage is time sensitive, meaning the longer it is present the worse the damage will be, the sooner you can respond to water the faster you can get it dried completely. To ensure drying time is done efficiently is to have the professionals handle water damage restoration in your home. With the use of commercial-grade air movers, dehumidifiers, and moisture monitoring equipment, the technicians at White Knight can ensure your home is dried in the least amount of time possible, while still being thorough. With professional help, you can safely assume drying water damage will take around 72 hours.
Once all the water has been removed and dried, then repairs, rebuild, and replacements can begin. Again, this step of the water damage restoration process is dependent on the extent of the damage, but also can be affected by the availability of materials. If damage is severe enough to require areas to be rebuilt, you will want to plan on around 2 weeks for the repairs to be complete. Replacing materials of your home that sustained irreparable damage takes time, especially if you want it done right.
