Water Restoration for Saturated Garner Office Carpeting

Cleaning Flooring During Water Restoration

Disasters impacting your office can overwhelm building materials and the structure's contents. With sensitive elements like low-pile, glue-down carpeting a standard in many industrial parks and corporate buildings, SERVPRO must resolve water damage quickly to prevent the material from becoming unsalvageable.

Reducing Standing Water

Before much of the water restoration for Garner office buildings can get underway, SERVPRO professionals must remove standing water threatening the work areas. Pooling is expected with larger water disasters, as there is often no porous material beneath the carpeting for water to absorb, like OSB board, padding, or plywood. A concrete subflooring leaves much of the water damage accessible with extraction devices like pumps, vacuums, and carpet wands.

Assessing the Carpet's Condition

With the majority of the water extracted and drained from the structure, our professionals must now look to determine the carpet's condition. Short exposure times can often leave flooring able to be restored and preserved, but the opposite is true with longer contact time or conditions like flooding.

We have several deep cleaning solutions that can help following the drying of carpets to prevent tear-out and reconstruction. However, there are some reasons why this replacement might make more sense for your business, including:

  • Staining
  • Deterioration
  • Wear
  • Mold damage

Floating the Carpet Layer

Detaching glue-down carpeting from the room's edges allows our SERVPRO team to introduce low-profile centrifugal air movers between this upper layer and the concrete subflooring. Running these machines helps to dry the carpet and its backing more completely, reducing the creation of secondary effects like mold and microbial threats. SERVPRO knows to create exhaust points on the far end of the carpeted flooring to prevent stretching.

Water damage can be one of your commercial structure's most common challenges. Our Large Loss response team is ready to help when disasters strike. Give SERVPRO of Southeast Raleigh / Garner a call today at (919) 615-1179.
