Please Don’t! The drying process requires running the equipment 24 hours a day for several days. Our equipment is designed for efficiency. That means, depending on the size of the loss, on average, the estimated cost to run this equipment can be as little as $1 to $2 per day. And because we know the noise might be problematic, for sleeping purposes or the quiet enjoyment of your home or office, we often suggest you call your insurance agent to see if your policy covers alternate living expenses or business continuity expenses.
