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. An insurance adjuster, presumedly, is better qualified and has more experience in water damage restoration than a homeowner who is dealing with an emergency remediation service for the first, and hopefully final, time. The sincere Restoration Companies Tonawanda NY question of said adjuster prompted this article as if someone who is supposed to be professionally educated and experienced in this arena does not understand what dry means, then it stands to reason that the in duress homeowner does not know and can reasonably question the time and effort we expend in doing a professional water damage remediation.
Let’s face it, money is always a consideration.

The benefit of this is simple… the potential for structural damage is abated and the potential for mold growth is minimized thus saving the homeowner untold expenses in home Tonawanda NY repair and medical costs.
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. Dry, in the context of water damage remediation, refers to a point in the intra-industry drying standard at which the moisture content is stated to Tonawanda NY be dry. Each region, by virtue of its unique ecology, has its own established drying standard. The outline of each region is beyond the scope of this article but any interested party can easily find the established drying standard for their region online.
