Effective Water Cleanup For Carpeting In Amherst Homes

Overflows that occur in the bathroom or the kitchen of your Amherst home can initially stay contained to the waterproof flooring common to the construction of these areas. After only a brief period, this water can begin to spread to neighboring rooms and seep through carpeting to affect subflooring materials and floor support materials. It is important to address water loss incidents quickly in your home, as lingering moisture can prove devastating to structural integrity and provide the conditions necessary for damaging effects like mold growth.

While you might require water cleanup for your Amherst home, your carpets require specialized tools and equipment to restore. Our SERVPRO professionals have a mindset when we begin a project to protect and preserve original materials when possible. With carpeting, there is a finite timespan between saturation and irreparable damage, so immediate action is vital to prevent tear out and replacement.

With water loss incidents, assessing the damage is an important step that happens as soon as our technicians arrive at your home. We can determine the spread of the water with moisture detection equipment and thermal imagery. As it is easy for carpet fibers to absorb spreading water, this damage can quickly move beyond the base of the material and into subflooring or structural elements beneath it. Extraction and drying efforts must begin as quickly as possible.

Our SERVPRO team arrives with our ROVER weighted extractor equipment that can roll over carpeted areas and force water to the surface for removal by the high-powered vacuum attached to the system. Once saturation gets reduced, our team can float the carpeted areas by allowing our high-velocity air movers to force heated air beneath the carpet and above the subflooring material to maximize efficiency.

With many steps necessary to entirely removing the water and moisture damage from an overflow or appliance malfunction, you need professionals that can arrive quickly with the tools and expertise to make a difference. Our SERVPRO of Merrimack water restoration specialists can make the damage in your home “Like it never even happened.” Give our crew a call today at (603) 262-9293.
