“How wet is it?”
During the assessment phase, information is gathered to determine if the material is restorable. Moisture readings are taken and the information is documented and analyzed to determine the correct amount and type of equipment necessary for the drying process.
“Is it Drying?”
Once a restorative drying process is implemented, daily monitoring of the drying progress is noted and the data recorded. If the materials are making significant progress after 24 hours, the drying continues with no major changes in equipment or technique while the progress is monitored and documented until the drying is complete.
“It is not Drying.”
If the materials are not drying as anticipated, the equipment and drying system are re-evaluated to determine what modifications need to be made to effectively complete the restorative drying process. Lightning Restoration remains in constant communication with the property owner and the insurance company throughout the process.
