So you sent the Restoration company home

Just because you think that everything is dry visually does not mean that it is. When you tell the company to leave because the fans are too loud and that they have to much stuff in your way. This is the type of thing that can happen. Moisture lies dormant and with the heat and humidity in the homes during the summer plumes of mold start to appear on objects slowly spreading around your home. This is not ideal and secondary damage from mold due to improper drying many times is not covered. Which is why they have you sign waivers. 

Always move your appliances seasonally

The convenience of having a washer and dryer in your home is always nice. Moving it is always a pain but is strongly recommended. When you do your deep cleaning for the changes of the season, please move any appliance that has a water source or is near one. You never know when a washing machine over flowed and you failed to notice and some of the standing water dried up. An ice maker in the kitchen stopped working and water pooled under the refrigerator. These seem trivial. Just look at the damage when it starts to creep into your view point. Catching a problem before it gets bad like this will save you a headache and a lot of damage down the road

Mold from water damage someone tried to clean up themselves

Water always follows the path of least resistance. Just because you cleaned up all the visible water does not mean the job is done. If it gets in between your walls the insulation provides a breeding ground for some very nasty stuff that you may not see for a long time. An important part of the drying process after a water damage is opening up walls and removing wet insulation.
