Preventing Water Staining In Your Jacksonville Home
Preventing Water Staining on Jacksonville Carpets After Losses
Cleaning flooring after standing water and saturation can help to reduce the presence of residues and prevent staining in Jacksonville homes. Carpets are particularly susceptible to showing staining and discoloration after oversaturation. When drying completes successfully, we have several strategies to revitalize the look and feel of carpeted floors.
We have multiple carpet recovery systems and tools, allowing us to complete nearly all stages of water cleanup for Jacksonville homes without delay. The faster that we can address potential residues and discoloration of the carpeting, the better our cleaning process can work. Depending on the type of flooring and the severity of the damage, we have techniques to restore high pile and short pile carpet layers. Our SERVPRO professionals can determine which approach is best for your home during the scoping of the job and throughout the mitigation process.
Hot Water Extraction
While many homeowners might recognize this process as steam cleaning, hot water extraction is an effective cleaning practice for both surface concerns and more deep-seated sediment. A blend of warm water and cleaning solutions get shot into the carpet fibers at high pressures and then get pulled back out, along with the loose particulates, with a powerful vacuum.
Pre-Conditioning and Rinse
In some situations, pre-conditioning a carpet can help both in the final appearance and in the removal of discoloring residues and debris. Our SERVPRO professionals can pre-treat damaged carpeting with our potent cleaning agents. This product stays in the carpet for 15 minutes or more before we begin a high-pressure rinse and extraction with powerful vacuums. Pretreatment can help to dissolve or dislodge set-in debris and sediment while simultaneously addressing surface staining or discoloration concerns.
Water damage can have a detrimental effect on many areas of your property. Even with drying out a carpet successfully, the work might not be complete in making it “Like it never even happened.” Our SERVPRO OF Arlington / Jacksonville East team can help with premier equipment and experienced personnel.
