Drying Subflooring After Carpet Removal in East Brunswick Homes

Despite the thickness of the material, nearly all carpet types used in traditional flooring for East Brunswick homes are highly absorbent. When water loss incidents threaten the residence, these materials can begin to show the worst signs of wear and deterioration after even limited exposure. In many cases, our professionals must remove the carpet and the padding to prevent even costlier damages to the subflooring materials like OSB board, plywood, and even the supporting joists underneath this top layer.

Removing the carpeting from the floors is one way to begin slowing the migration of water damage in East Brunswick homes, though more steps are necessary to remove this threat entirely. Our SERVPRO professionals must take immediate action with our premier water removal and drying tools and technologies to dry supporting materials like the subflooring, joists, and beams. We can begin by using our surface moisture meters to determine the concentration and severity of moisture damage to the subflooring layer before drying efforts start.

Numerous tools can play a role in the drying process. However, drying mats can often be one of the most effective strategies for pulling moisture from the surface layer of subflooring before warping or deterioration begins. Placement directly on the subflooring plywood can draw out moisture at a controlled pace. Our SERVPRO professionals can continually monitor the progress of this water removal until we reach the established dry baseline.

Once we have established that the area is dry and ready for carpeting, our in-house team of general contractors can reinstall the complete flooring assembly. We can meet the customer’s expectations and wishes in this stage by installing a different look and style of carpet flooring than what was initially removed during the mitigation stages.

Water losses in your home can be a destructive force, especially in areas where water collects on the floor. Though carpeting sometimes must get removed, we can often preserve the subflooring materials with the proper response with our premier drying equipment.
