What can be saved and what must be replaced relies on: the source of the water, the length of time the materials have been wet, and what drying devices and methods are employed. If the source of the water is from a sewage line, all absorptive items should be changed for health concerns. But if the water is from a burst water line or overflowing sink or washing machine, many structural components can be effectively dried, but time is essential. The longer a material is wet, the more it deteriorates and the more likely there is to be microbial growth. A flooded wooden flooring might already be showing some indications of damage which include a raised grain and some warping, but if the drying method is started shortly enough the flooring can revert to its original form. Carpet drying is vital as to prevent a breeding ground for mold. Nevertheless, if anything stays drenched for too long, the damage ends up being irreparable.
