Signs That Damp Carpet in Your East Brunswick Home Cannot Be Restored.

SERVPRO equipment at work. Water damage to your flooring is no DIY project. SERVPRO has you covered from start to finish for all water damage restoration services.

There Are Several Signals That Carpet is Not Salvageable After Water Damages. 

As one of the most commonly installed flooring materials, carpeting can become quickly damaged by water. Emergencies require SERVPRO professionals to mitigate this situation to prevent tear-out.

What Damages Can Carpets Sustain? 

Despite how water damage in East Brunswick can affect the entire house, flooring materials are often experiencing the heaviest tolls. Specific signals can indicate significant damage to carpets:

  • Delamination – This is where layers of the carpet material begin to separate. In the earliest stages, drying can overcome this process, but as it worsens, the carpet is no longer able to be preserved/restored.
  • Deterioration – Prolonged exposure to saturation can weaken fibers and the backing material to separate and deteriorate.
  • Subflooring/Padding Damage – When integrity damage or oversaturation exists with elements like the padding or the subflooring material, the carpet is often too heavily damaged for restoration.

Is It Ever Possible to Dry Carpeted Floors? 

Drying carpeting is not often as complicated as it might seem. This process's largest and most challenging aspect lies in extracting any trapped water caught in the fibers and padding.

Because carpeting can be a commonly installed element for homes and businesses in the area, having credible options for drying and restoring these materials is helpful.
