Carpet Wands Can Protect Subflooring of Your Thomson Home
Professional Equipment and Rapid Response is a Must for Thomson Home Water Removal
Efficient responses can help to reduce the overall property loss in your Thomson residence after a substantial water damaging incident. Removal techniques vary based on the severity of the damage inside the house, meaning that any one of dozens of practical extraction tools can get used in a home to reduce standing water concerns. When carpet saturation is a concern, we must also address this situation with extraction solutions.
The fibers of carpets can quickly absorb standing water, so it is difficult to accurately determine by sight the pressing need for water removal in Thomson homes. When water becomes such a threat that it exceeds the surface layer of carpeting and into the padding below, the underlayment and subflooring materials become threatened by the migration. While it is not ideal to replace any of these layers, carpeting included, it can be much costlier to have to replace supporting structural elements like OSB board and plywood or joists as well.
To protect both the flooring material and any underlying surfaces, it is crucial to inform our SERVPRO professionals about the loss incident as quickly as possible. We can mobilize our restoration technicians to begin mitigation as soon as the team arrives, reducing the spread of water through the structure and preventing further property losses.
Weighted extractors can help to force moisture out from both the padding and the carpet layers, though in some situations, it can be equally useful to utilize carpet wands. These attachments get hooked into wet vacuums or extractors. They can remove a fair amount of moisture from the carpet fibers, and might be the only extraction necessary when it gets decided that the padding is getting replaced by our in-house contractors.
With more than 150 years of combined experience in the restoration industry, we can offer up time and money saving solutions during water loss incidents. You can count on our SERVPRO of Augusta South / Burke & Wilkes Counties team to make water emergencies “Like it never even happened.” Call us anytime at (706) 843-1990.
