Randolph Water Damage Flooring Actions

Many clients wonder why they should dry a carpet vs. allowing the carpet to dry naturally. After all, they feel that the water can evaporate over time, causing little damage to the carpet.

There are several reasons why SERVPRO feels they should apply water mitigation techniques in Randolph homes to carpets. Every situation is distinct and should be assessed based on the following factors:

  • The amount of water absorbed by the carpet
  • Ambient humidity levels
  • Construction of the carpet
  • Carpet materials
  • Primary backing
  • Condition and type of underpad
  • Existing carpet warranties

Crawlspace foundation homes require attention to drying the floor joists and sheathing, which are comprised of cellulose materials. Mold and odors can cause poor IAQ indoor air quality and damp conditions below. We check and inspect to ensure all building elements are dried to standard levels.

  • Subfloor construction
    • Hardwood
    • Particleboard
    • Multiple layers of subfloor
  • Potential for delamination
  • Presence of mold

Carpets, which are allowed to remain wet for more than 72 hours, risk destabilizing the glues that are holding the carpet fibers together with the backing, the growth of mold, and the subfloor's structure weakening if it has absorbed moisture. Wet carpets over hardwood floors can also cause the wood to absorb water and swell, causing cupping or buckling. Protect your home, fixtures, and contents with rapid water removal to mitigate or prevent water damage.
