Los Angeles SERVPRO Residential Water Removal Sanitizes and Preserves Carpeting

Los Angeles homeowners with carpets or area rugs may not know the full extent to which moisture can compromise their flooring after a ceiling or floor leak. Even if the carpeting seems dry enough on the surface, the floor or subfloor below may also require drying and sanitation to prevent potential mold growth from developing in the home.

SERVPRO’s repertoire of sophisticated water removal tools preserve Los Angeles properties after disaster strikes. Highly-trained technicians observe restoration industry standards while ensuring that water-damaged structures and contents are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized to a preloss state.

Cleaning and Drying Water-Damaged Carpets and Rugs

Professional cleaning for wet carpeting requires several steps to return it to a pre-disaster condition:

  • SERVPRO technicians can carefully remove water with several passes with a portable extraction tool. Multiple applications of the extractor accelerate the drying process and can be done without delaminating carpet from the pad underneath
  • Odor control solutions for carpeting include time-release pellets, scented granules, injection systems, and even fogging for widespread water damage odors. Sanitation with OSHA-approved biocides also remediates microbial growth
  • During drying, carpets and area rugs can be “tented”–and even encased in polyethylene drying chambers–to speed up the process even further. Air movers and dehumidifiers are even more effective in contained spaces like SERVPRO drying chambers
  • After cleanup, restoration technicians can reinstall restored carpeting and re-seam it for a “Like it never even happened,” appearance. Irreparable needs replacing.
