SERVPRO Team’s Know Which Methods Will Work Best For Your Carpeting

If you ever suffer from any type of plumbing failure, it is possible that many of the contents and building materials inside your home will get wet. Moisture can then follow gravity and build up on your floors, which can force you to have to conduct extensive water damage restoration. Once your carpet gets wet after a pipe or an appliance in your house leaks, the moisture can become a magnet for dirt and soils.

Before they get dry, wet carpets can attract dust and dirt and cause your carpets to stain. One major step our SERVPRO technicians always take during water damage restoration in Emeryville is to clean your affected carpets after they have been dried out and extracted. When cleaning carpets and other upholstery, we can choose one or a combination of the following four different methods.

  1. Bonnet Cleaning

This method is the least aggressive cleaning method and can only be used to thinner carpets that have light soiling. During bonnet cleaning, our SERVPRO team sprays your affected carpets with Bonnet Brite, and then we use a roto with an absorbent bonnet pad to create agitation and then absorb the excess detergents.

  1. Hot Water Extraction

This method is the second to least aggressive and can work well when cleaning all types of carpets with light to moderate soiling. Hot water extraction occurs using a heavy-duty extractor with a wand that sprays the water-based detergent on the carpets as the extractor vacuums up the solution.

  1. Deluxe Pre-Condition And Rinse

This method is effective when attempting to clean carpets that contain moderate to heavy soiling. The deluxe pre-condition and rinse method also uses a portable or truck-mounted extractor, but the difference is that high traffic and heavily soiled sections of the carpet get sprayed with a pre-spray cleaner, and the chemical gets time to soak in before the cleaning 

gets conducted.

  1. Rotary Jet Extraction

Rotary jet extraction is pretty much the same as the deluxe and pre-rinse method, but an RX-20 rotary tool is used instead of a carpet wand.

If you ever notice soiling or stained carpets after they get wet due to a water leak, call SERVPRO of West Oakland at (510) 599-9300 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
