- Do I need general contractors?
- What about sewage contamination?
- How do I know when my property is completely dry?
There are some aspects of the restoration process that may require the services of general contractors such as drywall/painting; electrical; plumbing; roofing; framing/finish carpentry; flooring/carpet; installation of doors, windows, cabinets, post-construction cleanup, etc.
Hard surfaces can be cleaned and sanitized after water damage occurs. Affected items that cannot be sanitized will require disposal. Porous materials such as drywall, ceiling tiles, insulation, particleboard, paneling, etc. that have been directly affected by the damage should be removed during the emergency service visit.
Professional testing with specialized equipment is the correct way to determine if your business property and contents are completely dry. Touch alone may be a false indicator.
