I had a slight water leak from my A/C unit in the garage that, over time, seeped into the adjoining wall inside the house. The repair workers, among other things, removed the baseboards and set up three 4' tall heater fans that are blowing onto the wall in my breakfast nook to help dry it out. There is also a large hose taped to the floor for 13' that wraps around the kitchen faucet and drains into the sink, plus the bleach smell of the mold remediation process. And of course the workers are clomping over here once or twice a day to check the wall for dryness.
The heater fans are about 80 db, so not terribly loud but certainly noticeable. They give off enough heat to raise the temp a couple of degrees inside the house. I've retreated to my bedroom with the door closed.
How long does it take to dry out a wall, you ask? I don't even know, but it's been four shitting days so far.
Now this is all before the bulk of the project begins, which is to remove the furnace, A/C and water heater in the garage and rebuild the wooden platform they stand on, which is buckled and peeling because of the water damage. That will require me going to a hotel for a couple of days because it's still in the low 90s in central Florida and I'm not about to sit in a sweatbox while repairs are done.
I'M OVER IT!!
