Floating Carpets and Other ‘Magic’ SERVPRO Uses to Dry Water Damaged Carpets in San Antonio
Pooling Water Can Ruin Carpeting in Your San Antonio Home
Whenever water loss incidents occur within your San Antonio home, many areas and items become immediately at risk. Carpeting is a magnet for dust, debris, and dirt already, and when exposed to pooling water, can also quickly become saturated to the subflooring material. Even with conventional drying methods, homeowners often cannot keep up with the exposure and saturation becomes too deep to dry out without professional assistance. Our team can help.
For water removal needs in your San Antonio home, time is of the essence to get the process started as promptly as possible. The longer that exposure occurs with areas of your home, the more damage that can result. Our SERVPRO team can respond quickly to an emergency like this with extraction equipment and drying tools that can preserve and protect affected materials that did not become too badly saturated or distorted by the water.
With restoring carpeted areas of your home, we have a few options to protect and preserve these materials from requiring replacement. The first of these involves the use of our ROVER equipment. This remote-controlled weighted system rolls over carpeted areas, and with its heavyweight, pushes moisture and water to the surface for collection by the high-powered vacuum on the machine. This equipment can affect the carpeting and into the subflooring, helping to reduce saturation levels noticeably.
Floating carpets is another tactic that our SERVPRO team can use to recover damp carpeting in your home. We pull up the edges of the carpets from the walls and allow our air movers to blow underneath it. This machine forces heated air into both the subflooring and the carpets when positioned between them, which can help to dry out exposed areas quickly.
While there might be many areas of your home that get affected by a water loss incident, you should rely on the team that can help you restore your property entirely. Give our SERVPRO of Braun Station rapid response team a call anytime that you need us at (210) 267-2159.
