Why Remove? When We Can Restore!

4/25/2021 (Permalink)

When water damage happens, there are a lot of people who want to start tearing out carpet. When a homeowner calls and asks if they should start tearing out wet materials, we typically tell them not to, because we may be able to save the materials.

If the carpet can be saved, we remove the pad from underneath, extract any standing water on the ground, and extract the carpet. We often “float” the carpet, by attaching the carpet to an air mover and blowing air under it.

If the carpet is not salvageable, we promptly remove the carpet and pad, and focus on drying the remaining wet materials.

Before you start ripping wet carpeting out of your home or commercial building, call the professionals at SERVPRO of Mason City.
