    Default Dehumidifying after a flood

    How long do you need to run dehumidifiers after a flood? Basement is around 700 square feet and flooded up to 2 feet. Gyproc walls and hardwood floors. The weather here is dry since its winter. Thanks.

    I can't speak for Canada but when our bathroom flooded it was 21days until it could be re-tiled, fans and dehumidifiers running 24/7 for 14 days straight and our floor is above grade by 600mm
