While in the midst of a recent job, the insurance adjuster came out and asked why we are continuing to dry when the floor looked dry upon the adjuster’s visual inspection.

So what does dry mean? When is something dry? Dry does not mean a moisture content of zero as even in the desert there is moisture – if you know where to look and how to extract it.
