Drying Saturated Carpets in Atlantic City Homes
Atlantic City SERVPRO knows best when it comes to your flood damage.
Many flooring types exist in your Atlantic City home, including ceramic tiling in the bathroom to water-resistant plank wood in the kitchen. Carpeting is also a material found in many spots in the house. When water loss incidents occur, this material is highly susceptible to absorption, which can be damaging in multiple ways. Whether regarding the cost of reinstallation of damaged carpets or the production of mold and microbial threats, our professionals can help.
Drying out saturated carpeting involves many of the tools available to our SERVPRO professionals for restoring water damage in Atlantic City residences. Whether standing water exists on the surface of the carpet or not, an extraction might still be the ideal place to begin. We can utilize attachments like the light wands that connect to our portable extractors and vacuums.
Light wands are ideal for instances where the padding beneath a layer of carpeting is already too saturated and potentially damaged to save. Protecting the carpet might be easier with the removal of subfloor padding that can hold moisture. Wands can address trapped water in the fibers of the carpeting with a direct suction of smaller areas beneath the extractor attachment.
The SERVPRO professionals dispatched to your address during the initial hours following the first notice of loss can also deploy specialized extraction tools for damp carpets. Weighted extractors come in two varieties, including self-propelled and stationary. Self-propelled units are often ride-on options that utilize the weight of the technician to force moisture to the surface for collection. The same premise applies to stationary extractors, as they also use the weight of the technician from one point to the next.
Drying efforts will prove ineffective without removing the trapped water in the flooring material. No matter how severe these water losses might become, our SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton team can help with a dedicated mitigation approach to save our customers time and money.
