Northeast Power Dry Q&A

Can I turn the equipment off at night?


In order to dry your property successfully, it is important to keep the equipment running 24 hours a day. The equipment is specially designed to run continuously for long periods of time without overheating.

How long will it take to dry my property?

It depends! Our team arrives on site as soon as possible to assess the damage. The time that it will take to completely dry the property depends on the size and scope of the loss. Other factors that also affect the drying time include the type of water damage, how long the water sits for, and the type of materials affected. The typical drying period takes around 2-3 days. However, this may be shorter or longer depending on the severity of the situation.

What happens and what are the effects when water floods my property?

First, when water contacts drywall, the paint begins to bubble and peel. After that, the water starts to saturate the insulation behind the drywall.

Next, if the water remains on your property for an extended period of time, the wood structures will begin to swell. The longer the water sits there, the more damage it will cause. Wood exposed to long-term water damage rots.

Third, water-soaked carpets can be permanently ruined.

Fourth, water can damage electronic equipment and create safety hazards within your property.

Why can't I dry out the damage myself?

Although you may be able to clean up some of the water in your home, it is the water that you can't see that's the problem. Mold and mildew can grow in the dark cavities of your home if you do not remove all of the water damage completely. It is very important that meters are used to measure the moisture in your home to prevent any further damage
