Carpets can be Challenging to Clean and Dry After Flood Damage in Mendham Properties. 

Carpeted floors are an attractive installation option for modern homes, which can be comfortable on those using them every day and stay a beautiful element of your property when maintained. After flood damage, the carpets of your home can be a material that rapidly absorbs intruding water. We have several steps to remove water from these affected flooring materials and protect your property. 

Assessing the Situation with Job Scoping 

Flood damage in Mendham homes can be assessed quickly with our production manager or crew chief walking through the affected property and evaluating the situation. Inspections like this help create a custom restoration plan focusing first on the most immediate issues of the property, which can often include elements like extraction.  

Clearing Surface Water 

Water removal services are among the most common initial responses to flood water intrusion. Even when the water has been absorbed into the carpet, some can still pool on the surface. We have submersible pumps and vacuums that can remove this surface concern to make trapped water more accessible.

Extracting Water from the Carpet and Pads

Deep extraction options are almost specifically designed for use with carpets and padding assemblies. When caught early enough in clean water incidents, this extraction process can protect flooring materials. Some of the tools include:

  • Carpet Wands
  • Weighted Extractors
  • Floating the Carpet with Air Movers

Is the Subflooring Damaged? 

Another assessment that must be conducted is determining whether or not the subflooring has become affected by the migrating water. When this lower level has not been affected, we can remove the carpet and padding when substantial damage exists to protect the main supports of the floor.

With carpeting being a standard installation to many homes and businesses throughout the region, these components can be quickly impacted when flooding occurs. We work fast to mitigate pressing flood water concerns and protect the property. Our SERVPRO of Southwest Morris County team is standing by to help at (973) 895-5000.
