Long story short...water damage = new floor. Building is liable and had brought a flooring company in to repair. The superintendent of my building told me the repair would take a few hours and only a few hours for the tiles to dry.
I have two roommates and we have a tiny common area. Based on the super's estimates we agreed it would be OK for me to temporarily move all my furniture to the common area. Everyone had said "less than a day."
Worker comes in - he's here right now, in fact. He starts clearing the current tiles. I asked him, "about how long for the tiles to dry?"
He says "a day or two."
Mild panic sets in. First, I don't have anywhere else to sleep for the evening. Second, wtf. I was told a few hours!
I tell him this and he says "it should be OK if you are careful."
I'm really not sure what to believe.
These are rather thin wood tiles over a stone (?) floor. Stone floor isn't being touched.
I don't want to do something that I can be held liable for but I'm not sure what to do.
