Drying Timelines for Flooded Bradley Homes

The recovery of your Bradley residence after a flood or water loss can rely on the experienced professionals overseeing drying and moisture removal. Flood effects might often outweigh some of the immediate need for drying with a pressing concern of contamination or present debris, but once this task begins, established timelines dictate the effectiveness of moisture removal in your damaged house.

Despite the universal need for drying of flood damage in Bradley homes, specific materials and areas of your residence require more time than others to reach peak moisture content levels. Our SERVPRO team might not see the expected results with certain installed structural elements until our second or third trip to your property during the recovery phases. Knowing what to expect when flooding exists can help our technicians to ensure that these efforts are happening on schedule, and there are not unforeseen hindrances reducing efficiency.

2nd Visit
Within the first 24 hours, many materials can begin to show adequate progress with our drying efforts. The second visit to your residence happens within the first 24 hours so that our SERVPRO team can monitor the impact that air movers, dehumidifiers, and other moisture removal tools have had on carpets, drywall, and insulation.

3rd Visit
The framework of your residence might require drying when water migration goes beyond drywall and other surfaces to impact structural cavities. While we have a team of licensed contractors capable of replacing removed drywall and flooring, we must first ensure that progress to wood framing and subflooring has begun.

4th Visit
Less porous materials like solid woods and hardwood flooring can take several days to show the effects of our direct drying efforts. It is vital to restore these materials when possible, as recovery is often more cost-effective for our customers than removal and replacement by our contractors.

Every material affected by flooding in your home has its timeline and potential hurdles to drying entirely. Our SERVPRO of Kankakee County can help you to dry out your flooded residence and work to make its current effects “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (815) 935-0077.
