What can be conserved and what must be changed depends on: the source of the water, the duration of time the materials have been wet, and what drying tools and techniques are utilized. If the source of the water is from a sewage line, all permeable items should be changed for health concerns. But if the water is from a burst water line or overrunning sink or washing machine, most structural items can be effectively dried, however time is critical. The longer a material is wet, the more it breaks down and the more likely there is to be microbial growth. A flooded hardwood flooring might already be showing some signs of damage such as a raised grain and some warping, but if the drying procedure is started soon enough the floor covering can revert to its original shape. Carpet drying is essential as to prevent a breeding place for mold. Nevertheless, if anything stays soaked for too long, the damage becomes irreversible.
