Handling Carpets during Water Damage Repair
For Convenient Restoration of Your Emeryville Home Call SERVPRO
When there is a water spill in a home, carpets and other floor treatments are heavily affected since water accumulates on the ground. Other activities such as people’s movement or furniture relocation add to the strain on such materials.
Some of the steps taken during the water damage repair of Emeryville homes can damage carpets unnecessarily. After such physical damage, replacing the entire carpet or certain sections may be the only way to restore the house. Some of the typical problems that arise from poor handling of carpets include:
- Stretching or tearing
- Mold development from moisture remnants
When SERVPRO repairs water-damaged houses, we take steps to ensure no unnecessary damages to carpets and other floor treatments. For instance, where possible, we use specialized water extraction equipment such as ride-on rovers or water claws to avoid removing the carpet and reducing the chances of tearing it. We also use unique techniques such as floating, whereby we blow air underneath the carpet using air movers to ensure thorough and speedy drying thus, eliminating chances of mold development.
SERVPRO of West Oakland utilizes various approaches during water damage repair to ensure no complications arise. Call (510) 599-9300 for tailored service.
