Drying Out Your Bedroom Carpet After Water Damage In Lafayette
Rely on SERVPRO for Water Extraction from Carpets
Water damage can happen in your bedroom at any time. All it takes is a leak, a damaged pipe or even extreme weather. A wet carpet is frustrating, and of course, you want to get it dried out as quickly as possible. You might be worried about whether your carpet needs to be replaced. That is why we recommend you call SERVPRO at once. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, and we can begin drying your carpet quickly to prevent further damage.
It is understandable to be concerned that water damage in your Lafayette bedroom means disruption for you and your family. However, in some cases, it is possible for our IICRC-certified technicians to dry out your bedroom carpet, while it is still in place. Our experts thoroughly examine your carpet and the extent of the harm to determine whether in place drying is a practical option. It may be necessary to remove your bed, but smaller furniture items such as a chest or a chair can simply be moved from place to place within the room until water extraction is complete.
The first step is to extract any standing water. Our teams come equipped with both truck mounted and free standing submersible pumps that are powerful enough to get the water out of your floor coverings. We train our people to use the right sort of extraction tools to extract the maximum amount of water with the minimum amount of damage to your carpet.
In place, extraction may begin with a wand tool to prevent water migration. However, the most useful piece of gear, in this case, is a weighted extraction tool, which uses the body weight of one of our technicians standing on it for maximum water removal. SERVPRO understands that drying carpet without removing it means a longer and more thorough extraction process for best results.
We finish an in situ drying job by positioning air movers on the surface of your bedroom carpet. We may also lift the edges and "float" the fabric with moving air to expedite the drying and salvaging the padding. These direct hot air over the surface of the carpet to encourage evaporation of moisture and speed up drying time. Some air movers, known as down draft, pull down warm air and spread it across a large area of carpet and are very useful in drying an area the size of a bedroom.
Do not despair if your bedroom carpet is wet – it may be possible to save it. Give SERVPRO of Lafayette a call at (765) 420-0077 to find out.
