What Can I Do About Water Damage to My Canoga Park Living Room Carpet?

4/5/2020 (Permalink)

Drying carpet is tricky. We have the equipment and training to handle all of your water damage restoration needs.

SERVPRO Technicians Can Eliminate Water and Salvage Soaked Carpet in Your Canoga Park Residence 

Water damage can be sudden and stressful for homeowners. All it takes is a pinhole leak in a pipe under your living room floor to saturate the carpet above. It is crucial to have a professional take care of extraction to prevent mold growth or subflooring damage.  

When your Canoga Park residence needs water damage cleanup, SERVPRO techs are available 24/7 to mitigate damage and restore your home to its preloss condition. These restoration pros are trained in the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards so that you can expect a high standard of clean every time.

Dealing With Water-Damaged Carpet & Pad 

  • The padding under carpet absorbs water like a sponge but is usually restorable if only part of the carpeting has been wet for less than 48 hours.
  • Limiting foot traffic over the affected area is crucial. Too much walking on wet carpeting can cause it to delaminate or separate from its backing. Latex carpet backing typically returns to its original strength once dry.
  • Washing machines often clean small throw rugs using hot water and a biocide like chlorine bleach. However, this amount of bleach can affect the color of the rug. For standard capacity washers, use one cup of bleach per load. 

SERVPRO's Extraction Tools Restore Your Living Room

SERVPRO techs use a variety of tools to remove water from your carpet. The extraction process requires time and care and is hundreds of times more efficient for water removal than structural drying equipment. We use portable extractors, large rubber suction pads, rovers, and polyethylene drying chambers to ensure the restoration of your carpet and pads. SERVPRO can also evaluate your subflooring for water damage and dry it. 

SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills wants to ensure that your home looks, "Like it never even happened." You can call (818) 998-1500 for a mitigation service that starts within hours of your initial contact.
