Thorough Water Cleanup by SERVPRO in West Hartford Homes

Any water leak can harm your West Hartford property, especially if significant time passes before you fix the source or extract the pools of spilled water. Floor materials such as carpets are particularly vulnerable since water pools on the floor. You can save your carpets by taking decisive water restoration steps.

Before starting any water restoration process in your West Hartford home, you should understand the damage a particular water leak might cause. Otherwise, your actions might worsen or create new problems. SERVPRO is well versed in carpet cleaning, drying, and general management, so that we can help.

Common water damage on carpets

  • Staining from bleeding dyes
  • Delamination when glues deteriorate
  • Bad odor
  • Soaked padding
  • Matting fibers 

You would not want to end up with an eyesore after a mere pipe leak because your carpet is stained. The most likely cause of staining would be the dyes from other fibers in the surroundings, such as draperies or area rugs resting on the carpets. Resins or rust from furniture legs can also cause problems. Our SERVPRO technicians prioritize removing such items from carpeted areas before taking other water restoration steps.

Choosing water restoration processes

Water makes carpets vulnerable in many ways, like deterioration of the glues bonding the fibers to the backing. Wet carpets also lose up to 50% of their tensile strength and are thus prone to stretching and tearing. Damaging your carpet while attempting restoration would be devastating. Therefore, caution is necessary when choosing a cleaning or drying procedure.

Factors influencing restoration choices 

  • The knowledge level
  • Homeowners needs
  • Level or type of damage

The work crews from SERVPRO are well informed in restoration techniques like cleaning through hot water extraction, in-place drying with deep extraction tools, and floating carpets, thus quickening the process and salvaging materials that hold significant value for the homeowner.
