Water Damage What Is The Best Way to Dry Water Damaged Carpets in San Francisco? You can trust the SERVPRO Brand to dry your water damaged floors.

Call SERVPRO To Limit Water Damage To Your Carpets!

When water enters your home, carpet is usually the first thing affected and damaged. Unfortunately, it loses half of its strength when wet and permanent delamination may occur as a result. Carpet that undergoes large amounts of delimitation must be removed and discarded, which is why it is essential to contact professionals as soon as possible to prevent unfixable water damage.  

Dealing with carpet removal, inspection, and replacement can be a tedious process. That's why the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) technicians at SERVPRO are available to assist in mitigating water damage to carpeted San Francisco homes. When we arrive at the scene, we can get to work clearing out excess water. Unless cleaned up, water can seep through vapor barriers, potentially ruining floors.

Once water is successfully pumped out, we remove the wet sections of carpet for drying. If you have lots of furniture, you may prefer the in-place drying of your carpets. While being slower and less efficient, in-place drying allows our techs to dry your home without rearranging your favorite furniture. However, many carpet water damage cases do not qualify for in-place drying.  

If we are forced to remove your carpeting, we inspect it for large amounts of delamination. We also inspect subflooring for water damage. To ensure that your floors do not collapse, we can use air movers and dehumidifiers to dry out your subflooring. Additionally, this can help against mold growth.  

Fortunately, carpeting itself can be easy to dry as it quickly absorbs and releases moisture. With the proper equipment, our techs can remove, dry, and reattach your carpet, making your life easy.  

SERVPRO of Belmont / San Carlos is available 24/7 at (650) 591-4137. Don't hesitate to give us a call if your carpeting has been exposed to water because we can make you feel "Like it never even happened."
