How long will your Water Damage take to Cleanup?

As the water soaks into the carpet it also soaks into the wall which can further lengthen dry times.

Nobody plans to suddenly have 3 inches of standing water in their home so regardless of whether a water damage started from a broken pipe or excessive rain it needs to be taken care of as quickly as possible. In this situation the longer water sits the more bacteria grows, odors become stronger, water soaks into more materials and the change of microbial (mold) growth increase.

That is why calling restoration experts as soon as possible like the ones here at SERVPRO of Northeast Wichita is imperative.

The drying process after a water intrusion typically takes experts between three days to a week and a half to complete. Most home owners in Wichita, KS can expect a cleanup to last 3 days but the length will depend on: 

  • The percentage of the home affected
  • The depth of moisture penetration into the structures materials
  • The water’s level of contamination
  • Length of time the leak or standing water was able to sit 

As a homeowner your first step should always to address the source of water intrusion. Even simply turning the water off until the professionals arrive can greatly decreasing drying time since it will help reduce the scope of your water damage.
