  3. 3. If it is a cooler season, you will be advised to leave theheat on to assist in drying. If it is the summer, use airconditioning if it is available.To remove as much water as possible, you will needthe powerful water extraction equipment thatyour ServiceMaster Clean Care technician can provide,as well as the high-powered drying fans they alsoprovide.
