- Should I open the windows to help the drying process?
- Do I need a permit for restoration work?
- What about special items? Artwork, china, heirlooms, etc.
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.
When required, your ServiceMaster Restore Project Manager will take out the appropriate permit(s) on your behalf, identifying our company as the general contractor. If applicable, permit fees are included in the estimate and may be covered by the insurance company.
Some high-value items require restoration by specialists. Working with your insurance claim representative, we can help you identify these items and locate a qualified restorer.
