How much would you charge to suck up 10-20 gallons of grey water then dry the room?

A Bedroom or 2 in a condo/apartment.

how many blowers and for how long?

or would you need a dehu for a job like that?





ps. yes I did register for a IICRC class coming up

thanks

10 to 20 gallons??? give me a break. Suck it up? is there pad under it? Since it is possible 2 bedrooms then the wall should be checked. What is the source if the bathroom then vanity etc has to be checked. 1 am for ever 12' of wall are you floating the carpet or top down drying?? Grey water can very rapidly turn black. If you have to ask you shouldn't be doing it??? But like most just load it up with equipment for a week or so and send the bill. This is why I'am no longer doing WD to many experts on lack of knowledge?

After you leave the drying equipment on site for a week, you tear it all out and rebuild it

Splash there is no such thing as a basic water job.
Water escapes or overflows in bathrooms or kitchens are the moset difficult. The two most expensive rooms in your house can be a nightmare when water hits.
