Professional Carpet Drying

Routine maintenance of your Ft. Lauderdale business can sometimes be trying enough, especially when your business sees a lot of foot traffic. Carpets often take the worst of these effects from the high volume of customers or clients, and this is made even worse when you have an emergency that leaves water damages throughout areas of your facility.

While you seek first to repair whatever the source of the water damage was, you also have to think about the most efficient manner for carpet drying in your Ft. Lauderdale business. One of the things that you need to consider when you have oversaturated carpeting is that time is not on your side. Pooling water and damp areas can weaken structural elements and ultimately cause irreparable damages if the situation does not get addressed promptly.

Water damage in the carpets of your business can get addressed in several steps, and these need to happen as quickly as possible to ensure the preservation of the materials. Extraction for oversaturated carpeting and pooling is a process that typically requires a specialized tool known as a weighted extractor. Given the magnetism for fibers in the carpet to hold on to dust, debris, and even the water in this situation, wet-vacs are less effective in these situations. Instead, a ride-on machine forces water to the surface to get extracted by pushing it out with a heavy roller.

Drying the area is critical to prevent mold and mildew growth, not to mention a continual weakening of structural components. If the water damage gets deemed deep enough, drying mats might get used to penetrate into the subflooring and dry the damage. Damage towards the surface can often get resolved with the use of air movers and dehumidifiers.

While this might have given you a more technical approach to the way that we can dry out carpeted areas in your facility, it shows you the level of dedication that our professionals put into a project like this. Given the concerns when areas of your facility are inadequately dried, trust our SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale South restoration technicians to do what it takes to restore these areas promptly.
