- Will turning up the heat help dry things out?
- Do I need general contractors?
- Should I open the windows to help the drying process?
Not necessarily. Our trained technicians will adjust the temperature to its optimum setting for the proper drying conditions. Once set, do not change the setting or shut off the HVAC system; doing so may prolong the drying process.
There are some aspects of the fire and smoke 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. ServiceMaster Restore offers full restoration services.
Opening the windows in your home to assist the drying process is not always recommended. Outside weather conditions may vary. Your ServiceMaster Restore technician will determine when and if opening windows to let in outside air is advisable.
