Water Removal in Morristown for Residences with Thick Fiber Carpets
Water Removal in Morristown
Water emergencies can strike at any time. You may be at work, away for the weekend, or in the house when an emergency happens, but the result is usually the same. When water enters dry areas of the home, it is immediately absorbed into porous materials and migrates away from the source. You may want to consider moving furniture away from the vicinity to limit immediate losses. Some parts of your home may be tough to move, such as carpets or heavy furniture items. For these areas, it can be beneficial to rely on a qualified restorer.
The need for water removal services in Morristown can vary from resident to resident. Sometimes large volumes of standing water need extraction quickly. At other times, small quantities of water may become absorbed into carpets and work their way downward, affecting the subfloor pad before eventually saturating the subfloor. The extent of damage depends on the amount of time and the materials in your flooring. These variables also influence the type of procedure SERVPRO restorers adopt.
Thick carpets can be a real issue when coming into contact with water. With large porous fibers, they can take on significant amounts of moisture, which is tough to extract using standard drying equipment. At SERVPRO, we have access to various water extraction devices. Generally, they use a centrifugal motor to create a powerful vacuum that transports water from your home through a duct and releases it into a storage tank.
Properties fitted with thick carpets need a select type of extraction tool. Self-propelled extraction tools use a motor to move automatically across the rug. These weighted devices can compress your carpet's fibers to squeeze the moisture out. Technically, they work similarly to squeezing or wringing a wet cloth. SERVPRO technicians can provide additional weight by standing on top of the extractor. This method can be particularly beneficial when subtracting moisture from both carpet and pad.
Every home is different. We tailor our water damage restoration services to get your property back to its preloss condition. Contact SERVPRO of Hamblen County at (423) 318-6733.
