Whether it’s from a burst pipe, rainwater, or just a bath overflow, water can cause considerable damage to your carpets. Unfortunately, flood damage restoration requires more than just extracting the water and letting the carpet dry.
For flooded areas, we map the wet carpet areas with electronic equipment. The flood water can travel under the carpet through the underlay without wetting the surface of the carpet. Our equipment detects this at the beginning of the job.
We then extract the bulk of the water with the extraction tool. Next, we use a deep suction tool to remove most of the water from under the carpet. Our dehumidifier and air movers then extract the rest of the moisture from carpet underlay and floor surface. In some cases, the carpet does not have to be lifted.
