Once your carpet has successfully dried, we can replace it to make it seem, “Like it never even happened.”

How Rapid Water Cleanup Can Save Your Fort Myers Carpeting

It is common for homes in Fort Myers to have comfy carpeting on floors. However, this comfy floor covering can quickly become a nightmare to deal with after a leak in your home. Flooding in homes can come from a wide range of sources but can be more serious than you might assume. The most serious incidents resulting from burst pipes can result in as much as hundreds of liters of water flowing into your home.

When disaster strikes in the form of serious water discharge, it is important to contact professionals who can skillfully remedy the situation in a short time frame. Water damage restoration technicians (WRT) from SERVPRO offer water cleanup services for Fort Myers homes. Standing water can eventually percolate through the vapor barriers in carpeting and cause serious damage. Once soaked, carpet loses half of its adhesive strength and can permanently delaminate if left underwater for too long. Once delaminated, the carpet must be removed, discarded, and replaced, a process that can be both time consuming and expensive for homeowners.

To help prevent you from incurring such costs, we use industrial grade wet vacs to quickly clean up water from your home. Due to its porous and spongy nature, carpet both easily absorbs and releases water. While this makes it easier for water damage to occur, it also allows our techs to rapidly dry your carpets. After using specialized carpet removal tools, wet sections can be peeled off of your floor and air dried. Additionally, we can use moisture detectors to examine the exposed subflooring for water damage. Once your carpet has successfully dried, we can replace it to make it seem, “Like it never even happened.”

To avoid the stressful and time-consuming re-carpeting process, it is important that you get on the phone with water cleanup professionals as soon as possible. SERVPRO of N. Ft. Myers / Punta Gorda can be contacted at any time at (941) 575-5910, so call now to begin speaking to one of our emergency dispatchers.
