Getting Water Damage Out Of Carpets In Jacksonville
Water Damaged Carpets
Many types of flood and water damage in Jacksonville can cause immense damage to carpeting, including color bleed, warping, mold growth, fraying of materials, corrosion, and other harmful processes. Resolving water damage in carpets is no easy task, and is one of the most involved processes for SERVPRO technicians in the field. To effectively clean up and remove signs of water damage, we may need to bring out a full arsenal of machines and treatment plans in some situations. Here are some of the ways we mitigate and repair the effects of water in carpets.
Extraction And Drying
The first and arguably most important part of our work to remove the effects of water damage from Jacksonville homes' carpeting is to remove the water. While water remains in the carpet, it can continue to cause damage and wreak havoc on the home. We use heavy water extraction pumps and directed air movers to eliminate all traces of moisture in the area before moving on to other restoration tasks.
Sometimes, the carpet may be so thoroughly damaged that restoration is not a viable option. In this case, we can consult both you and the insurance adjuster to find and install suitable replacement carpeting. While some scenarios may necessitate removal of an entire room's carpet, we more commonly replace only a section of the carpet, seamlessly blending new and restored materials. Note that this may require some extra work such as fresh tack strips.
Our primary course of action, however, is not replacement but restoration. We make every effort to save your carpet as we can, and in most cases, we can apply treatments and processes to the carpet and prevent its replacing. Our policy of "restoration before replacement" saves our average customers hundreds or thousands of dollars over the course of our work on their properties.
