Can Carpets and Padding Be Salvaged After Flood Damage?
SERVPRO can Help Edgewater Residents Determine Whether to Dispose of Salvage Items
Carpet and padding are porous, which makes them especially vulnerable to water damage. They absorb water and contaminants readily. When a home is flooded and carpeting is impacted, it can present unique challenges.
Can Carpets Be Restored from the Effects of Contaminated Flood Water?
Carpets that have been saturated by contaminated water cannot be restored. Replacement is the only solution in this case. Part of our flood damage service in Edgewater is the proper removal and replacement of carpets. If your home has extensive carpeting, you want someone who knows how to mitigate the damage and restore your home to preloss condition. When dealing with carpet replacement we:
- Cut the contaminated carpet into small strips for easier removal
- Move the furniture, and when finished, put it back where it was
- Clean and decontaminate the flooring underneath
- Put down the new carpet
At SERVPRO, our goal is always to restore rather than replace, but in some situations, that is not safe to do. Carpet and padding contaminated with black water are one of those circumstances.
