This is important to know for several reasons. First, it saves time and money by getting the home or business back quicker. Second, it limits any out of pocket expenses by working within the guidelines that the insurance industry sets. Lastly, it can help preserve priceless family heirlooms.

By having the airflow both under and over it (floating) helps facilitate the drying process.
