Treating Damaged Carpets with Water Damage Mitigation in Hackettstown, NJ

December 18th, 2018 · No Comments

Heavy rainfalls often result in considerable flooding which can damage your home and belongings. Flood waters can also bring dangerous contaminants into your home, compounding the damage. If your home in Hackettstown, NJ has been damaged in a flood, it’s time to call the water damage mitigation professionals at ServiceMaster Metropolitan. We’ll ensure all traces of contaminated water are removed, your home is restored to its pre-loss condition, and take the required steps to prevent future mold growth.

Today, we’ll discuss how our technicians determine whether or not carpets damaged by flood waters are salvageable. Considerations we use include:

  • Expenditure on Restoration: Our water damage mitigation technicians will determine the cost of your carpets. If replacement is comparable to restoration, we’ll recommend discarding the damaged carpets. This is a quick, cost effective solution
  • Type of Water: The type of water which damaged your carpets influences our next steps. If the water is contaminated with sediments or dangerous materials, for your safety, we’ll recommend replacing the carpets. However, if the water was mostly clean, restoration is possible
  • Exposure Time: How long have your carpets been exposed to water damage? The longer the exposure, the less likely it is we’ll be able to restore them. However, if we’re called quickly, we have a greater chance of being able to restore your carpets
  • The Problem of Delamination: Another important detail our technicians examine is the density of the carpet pad. If the padding has been delaminated and primary/secondary backing is coming apart, our experts advise replacement instead of spending time restoring the carpets
  • Carpet’s Age: Newer carpets are easier to restore because they’re not as worn as older carpets

Treating carpets that have been damaged by flooding takes more than renting a carpet cleaning machine from the store. Our water damage mitigation technicians have the tools, training, and expertise to restore your carpets to their pre-loss condition quickly. Our work will also prevent mold from growing in your carpets later on.
