Prompt Water Removal in Your Kankakee Home Can Save Your Carpeting

Have you experienced a water leak that has saturated your carpets? If so, you need to act fast to dry it up quickly. If you leave the water to dry out naturally, mold can grow on your carpeting. The carpet fibers can also get ruined.

Water damage does not spell the end of a carpet’s life. If you perform water removal in your Kankakee residence quickly, you can save the carpets. Before you dry your carpeting, you need to consider several factors, including:

The age of the carpet

If the carpeting is old or has sustained damage in the past, saving it can be difficult. Over time, the backing can deteriorate or pull away from the carpet.

Extent of destruction

You can dry your carpet if there are one or two inches of water. However, when more water is involved, or it has sat for an extended period, drying the carpeting is more complicated.

Source of water

The kind of water involved determines how easy or hard it is to restore the ruined carpet. In most cases of clean water damage, it is possible to restore both padding and carpet through appropriate sanitation, remediation, and cleaning techniques. Salvaging a carpet after gray water saturation is possible, but do so quickly before gray water turns into black water.

Depending on the type of water on your carpeting, you may not feel safe handling the situation on your own. You can hire restoration experts from SERVPRO to remove the water. One of the main concerns in water damage incidents is the delamination of carpets. Delamination is the separation of primary and secondary backings. Even a new carpet can delaminate. Our technicians can check your carpeting to determine if delamination has occurred. If that is the case, you have to replace the carpet.

If delamination has not occurred, we can use wet/dry vacuums to remove as much water as possible from the carpet. Our restorers can then dry your carpet to remove the remaining moisture from the carpet fibers so they can return to their natural texture and appearance. When the carpet fibers are dry, they cannot attract and hold additional soils and microorganisms cannot grow on them. Drying requires low humidity, heat, and air movement. We can use air movers to enhance air circulation and dehumidifiers to control humidity in your home. Before you clean your carpets, you need to be sure they are thoroughly dry. Our SERVPRO team can use moisture meters to confirm that they are dry.

After a water leak, SERVPRO of Kankakee County can restore your carpeting by removing the water without damaging or altering the appearance of the fabric. Contact us today at (815) 935-0077 for effective restoration.
