- Do I need a permit for restoration work?
- What will it cost to run the drying equipment?
- What is that smell?
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.
Based on average monthly electricity billing rates, it may cost approximately one dollar per day per piece of drying equipment to operate. Actual rates will vary depending on the energy rates charged by your electricity provider.
Usually, if it smells like mould, it is mould. Mould or mildew odours are due to the presence of fungi in the air, inside pipes or walls, or hidden in other parts of your commercial property. Mould is thicker than mildew, so if the smell is particularly strong, that’s a clue that it’s mould and you need to act fast to prevent further growth.
