Steps SERVPRO Takes to Restore Commercial Water Damaged Carpet
Restoration of Wet Carpet from Commercial Water Damage
Very little smells worse than wet carpeting from a commercial water damage event. This odor is even more significant when the water sat overnight and discovered the next morning. Because of the way water degrades quickly, fast clean-up is vital to stop the investment in the property's carpeting from becoming a water loss casualty.
Since SERVPRO technicians are available 24-hours daily to cleanup commercial properties, the fast action makes the difference between whether it is a clean, gray or black water mitigation for the property.
Safety First in Water Cleanup Situations
SERVPRO technicians test the water to ensure there are no harmful bacteria or chemicals present and choose the appropriate extraction methods for fast removal of the water. If exposure to water included sewage or sat longer than 48 hours before cleanup, carpet requires removal per biohazard disposal methods.
Carpet Cleanup Requires Specialized Applications
Due to the porous nature of commercial carpet and padding, a standard wet/dry vacuum cannot do the job sufficiently to avoid odors or the potential for mold growth. SERVPRO has powerful equipment with specific attachments to work on carpet and eliminate most of the water for faster drying.
Mold is Always a Concern
After water damage, particularly in porous materials such as carpet fibers or behind baseboards, technicians apply proactive efforts to limit the possibility of mold growth. These efforts include thorough drying, antibacterial cleaning solutions, and the use of antimicrobial sealants.
Deodorizing is Crucial
Water leaves its unique signature scent, and SERVPRO technicians often use a multi-layered approach to treating odor left behind, especially in the carpet fibers. Covering foul odors is not enough, and the technicians deploy equipment designed to neutralize airborne odors at the molecular level.
Sealing After Cleaning Keeps Carpet Looking Great Longer
Once the carpet in the commercial property has soils and residues removed, the application of a professional-grade fiber sealer assists in keeping high traffic areas looking cleaner for longer and with regular maintenance can work to extend the life of your commercial carpet thereby protecting your investment.
