Removing wet carpet?

12/8/2020 (Permalink)

When a pipe in your home breaks, water can get literally everywhere. SERVPRO often shows up to jobs where the homeowners carpet needs to be removed because of water damage. If the carpet has been wet for longer than 48-72 hours it is a good time to consider replacing the carpet and padding.. Mold takes no longer than 72 hours to form and spread making it difficult to clean thoroughly after that time. If mold begins to spread, then you will be in for a lot of other issues.

However, there are steps you can take to hopefully avoid removing the carpet.

  1. Remove water as quickly as possible
  2. Use fans to speed up carpet drying process
  3. Use a dehumidifier to dry out the room
  4. Steam clean carpet and flooring

SERVPRO® of Archuleta, Montezuma, La Plata & San Juan Counties is here to help you 24/7/365 with any water damage and restoration issue.
