Cleaning Carpets After Water Damage

Water and flood damage can both be substantial concerns for a business. One of these instances can be enough to close your doors for a time, so people rely on the fast response of SERVPRO professionals to help with aspects of mitigation that protect the structure, such as:

  • Pooling
  • Wet Carpeting
  • Mold/Microbial Growth

Absorbent Carpet Material

Carpeting is one of the more challenging materials to consider after water damage to Ferndale offices. The inexpensive flooring selected is meant to get several years of foot traffic and then be replaced, making it unsuitable to survive more direct water exposure from burst pipes, broken sprinkler fixtures, or plumbing connections. Because of its thin and lightweight composition, short pile carpeting is often easier to dry and clean when contamination is not a concern.

Non-Permeable Subflooring Materials

While one advantage of short pile carpeting common to offices is the solid and non-porous subflooring materials underneath, this adds issues in other areas when restoration first begins. Concrete subflooring does not absorb the standing water on the surface, so this condition can stay a challenge to overcome until extraction devices get implemented.

Our Advanced Tools to Help with Cleanup

We must manage the water caught in the flooring as rapidly as possible. Often the best means of doing this is using various inventory extraction tools. High-efficiency carpet wands can be suitable for short pile carpeting common to office buildings. These can be run on stationary pumps or portable wet vacuums, depending on the power needed.

Cleaning up after water damage or flooding in your office building can often mean drying and restoring impacted building materials. Carpets and other flooring types require fast and deliberate action to prevent needed repairs or reconstruction.
