What is the Best Way to Get Water Out of My Carpet?
SERVPRO Uses Extraction Equipment to Remove Excess Moisture in Grovetown
When you have carpeted areas in your Grovetown home and experience a water leak, it is crucial to extract the water and dry it right away. If excess moisture remains unattended, carpeting can sustain secondary damage, such as damaged subflooring and mold growth. Our goal is to restore your carpet to preloss status rather than having to replace it.
What if the Carpet Padding is Wet Underneath the Carpet?
SERVPRO Technicians Make Sure to Address All Flooring
Water mitigation in your Grovetown home requires thorough inspection and attention to detail throughout the entire restoration process. Our technicians use probed moisture sensors to check if the moisture reached the subflooring. If it did, they take measures to dry both the carpet and subflooring underneath. Typically, the carpet pad requires replacement if thoroughly soaked. However, technicians determine whether or not it is salvageable.
Why Types of Extraction Equipment Do Technicians Use?
- For carpet, deep extraction tools are useful in removing the most water.
- Self-propelled extractors pull water out of the carpet by compressing the carpet and underlying pad to squeeze the water out and then vacuum it up.
- Stationary extractors work by squeezing and vacuuming the water; however, technicians move the extractor to a new section after approximately 10 seconds.
- Technicians use portable extraction wands for hard to reach areas such as tight corners.
Extraction is just one critical step in water mitigation for your home. After technicians successfully extract the water, they go about drying the room using high-velocity air movers and dehumidifiers to ensure that your carpet remains dry, and there is no excess moisture lingering in the air.
