Why Professional Remediation is Necessary to Salvage Water Damaged Carpets in Casa Grande
SERVPRO Solves Water Damage to Carpet in Casa Grande Home
Contrary to what you may have heard, water damage to carpeting does not mean the carpet is automatically a loss. If mitigation begins quickly enough, and it is a clean water (Category One) event, the carpeting may be restorable through our proprietary methods for drying and cleaning.
SERVPRO was called to a Casa Grande home to clean up and restore water damage affecting the living room carpeting and utility room on the first floor of a house. A seam on a 30-gallon hot water tank had burst and migrated from the utility room to the adjoining living room area.
Fast thinking on the homeowner’s part helped, by calling us so quickly after the initial water loss, cleanup efforts began before the water had a chance to wick into sheetrock, pool behind baseboards or migrate beyond the two rooms.
We used multiple portable pumps to make several passes over the two rooms. Our technicians extracting water from the living room carpet used weighted extractors to push as much water as possible out of the padding to the surface of the carpeting, so it is picked up by the pump and removed. The more moisture we remove before we move on to the drying phase of restoration, the faster drying happens.
SERVPRO has state-of-the-art detection equipment that is specialized for use to find elevated moisture levels in areas of the home such as subflooring, in wall cavities, floor joists, and other hard-to-clean areas. Our scoping showed that the central area of excess moisture was in the living room. The utility room where the incident began showed no hidden moisture issues.
Our air movers are not fans that blow air on wet rooms to dry them. Air movers blow with such velocity they cause water vapor to rise from within wet objects where our dehumidifiers capture it and port it out of the room. This method works well in tandem with our specialized drying set up for in-place drying, which decreases the chance to delamination of the carpet and less disruption for the homeowner. After drying, the affected areas were cleaned and disinfected to leave the rooms smelling fresh without any residual odors.
