Do You Have Water Damage To Your Carpets In Your Pensacola Home?

Carpeting is often the most expensive and time-consuming part of a water restoration process.

Water Damaged Carpets

Carpeting is often the most expensive and time-consuming part of a water restoration process, as carpets can take high amounts of damage even in low-intensity scenarios. Carpets can be frayed, torn, misshapen, grow mold, and have their colors bleed through onto other carpets. In many cases, full replacement of a room or section's carpeting may be necessary, although rugs and small sections may be open to less expensive restoration. Our technicians will help to guide you through the process and inform you of how SERVPRO deals with water damaged carpeting.

What We See Most
When flooding is involved many heavy water damage cases in Pensacola, such as the Navy Air Station, will require full replacement of floor-mounted carpets and possibly rugs and small carpets on top of them. Carpets commonly shrink, stain, or have different colors bleeding into them. Tack strips may be broken or softened as water soaks into them, and if the problem has not very recently developed, there may be mold growth on, in, or underneath the carpeting. These are all serious issues which are, unfortunately, all too common where carpet damage is the heaviest.

How SERVPRO Helps to Clean them Out
The most damaged carpets must be replaced, although it doesn't have to be for a full room. In many cases we can simply remove a portion of carpeting to be replaced with an identical material, saving time and money on installations. For rugs, we are often able to put them through wet or dry cleaning measures, or more delicate options for certain materials. Our policy is to help restore rather than replace, saving you money and headache on replacement materials.

SERVPRO of West Pensacola regularly restores and replaces water-damaged carpets and other home amenities in the local area. For a professional, friendly restoration service, call us at (850) 469-1160.
