Saving Carpeting During Indoor Flood Cleanup
SERVPRO Water Damage Cleanup for Raleigh Homeowners Cleans and Dries Carpets
Carpet is one of the most vulnerable flooring surfaces in a water damage situation. Without fast action, the fibers can house microbial growth, unpleasant odors, and hard-to-remove stains. Thorough saturation can also impact the subfloor below, which can increase repair and replacement costs significantly.
SERVPRO performs water damage cleanup for Raleigh property owners per standards set by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification. Restoration technicians are trained to handle water damage repair needs for carpet and upholstery.
Water Damage Cleanup for Carpet and Pad Includes Extraction Services
SERVPRO technicians use commercial-grade extractors to clean and sanitize salvageable carpets and padding after a disaster. Hot water extraction is the most effective for light to moderate soiling from moisture.
Extraction units work with portable or truck-mounted systems to remove water for disposal and feature three systems: a vacuum for removing water, a pressure pump to transmit cleaning solution through the extractor wand, and a solution heating system.
The extraction process entails the following:
- Technicians choose a compatible emulsifying solution for the carpet in question, with a different pH depending on the composition of the fibers being treated
- Carpet fibers are loosened, vacuumed, and treated with pre-spray in heavy traffic areas
- Carpet wands are deployed, spraying the fibers with the heated cleaning solution. SERVPRO techs repeat multiple times as needed until the carpet is ready for drying
