Restoration Process for Water Damaged Carpets

11/6/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Restoration Process for Water Damaged Carpets When your home or commercial property has water damage from flooding or leaks, we have the expertise and equipment to properly restore your property.

Water Damaged Carpets

Many types of flood and water damage can cause immense damage to carpeting, including color bleed, warping, mold growth, fraying of materials, corrosion, and other harmful processes. Resolving water damage in carpets is no easy task, and it’s one of the most involved processes for SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle’s technicians. To effectively clean up and remove signs of water damage, we may need to bring out a full arsenal of machines and treatment plans. Here are some ways we mitigate and repair the effects of water in carpets.


Extraction And Drying

The first and arguably most important part of our work to remove the effects of water damage from carpeting. While water remains in the carpet, it can continue to cause damage and wreak havoc on the home. We use heavy water extraction pumps and directed air movers to eliminate all traces of moisture in the area before moving on to other restoration tasks.


Replacement

Sometimes, the carpet may be so thoroughly damaged that restoration is not a viable option. In this case, we can consult both you and the insurance adjuster to find and install suitable replacement carpeting. While some scenarios may necessitate removal of an entire room's carpet, we more commonly replace only a section of the carpet, seamlessly blending new and restored materials. Note that this may require some extra work such as fresh tack strips.


Restoration

Our primary course of action, however, is not replacement but restoration. We make every effort to save your carpet as we can, and in most cases, we can apply treatments and processes to prevent replacement. Our policy of "restoration before replacement" saves our customers, on average, hundreds or thousands of dollars over the course of our work on their properties.
