Commercial Expert Help For Marlborough Office Wet Carpet Woes SERVPRO's Water Extraction from Wet Carpets Mitigates Damages in Marlborough Commercial Properties

Wet and Water Damaged Commercial Carpets Get the Professional Service Needed for Restoration from SERVPRO in the Marlborough Area

Wall to wall carpet gives a professional look to your Marlborough office or hotel, but adequately maintaining it is necessary to preserve its appearance and function. Leaving the cleaning and repair of damage to your floor coverings to your housekeeping staff might not be the best choice, especially if a significant water incursion soaks your carpet. Our crews are experienced in resolving wet carpet issues and are available to help quickly.

If a water cooler or lobby aquarium breaks and spills in your Marlborough office, restoring and drying the wet carpet must be job one. Merely mopping up the moisture or renting a cleaner cannot give you the peace of mind a professional restoration delivers. Carpets take a beating even without the addition of excess water but are expensive and time-consuming to replace. IICRC trained technicians from our production teams approach the job of removing the water and drying the floor and carpet with strategies back by research and best practices.
 
Removing the carpet is an option, but that is disruptive to your business operations. SERVPRO crews receive advanced training on in-place drying of the floor, padding, and carpeting. When we arrive, we assess the extent of the water saturation and take steps to minimize further migration of the fluid to unaffected areas of the carpet. Drying the several layers of floor covering requires the operation of weighted extraction wands, using pressure to force the moisture out of carpeting and padding. Only certified technicians can ensure the repeated passes of the extractors do no damage the carpet further, including potential rips, tars, stretching, and delamination of the backing from the fibers. When commercial grade glue-down carpeting has been affected by a large water spillage, the requirements are different and can be covered in another blog article.
 
Sometimes it makes sense to remove and replace the padding, particularly when the water holds contaminants. This can be done in stages without requiring the entire carpet to be taken up at one time. As the areas under the padding are exposed, examination and drying of the underlying floor can occur. SERVPRO crews work closely with you, and our office provides a liaison to your insurance company as we complete the job to ensure the restoration efforts chosen, including replacement of parts of the carpeting system, are covered by your policy.
 
Cleaning, sanitizing, and thorough drying must also be a part of the procedure. SERVPRO uses effective and dedicated carpet cleaning solutions and EPA registered disinfectants after the water removal to ensure clean and sanitary conditions. We position supports and air movers to direct warm airflow over and under the carpet while running dehumidifiers to speed the water vapor migration out of the fibers.
 
SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord is ready to assist when a water spill or crisis soaks your office carpet. Call (978) 486-9868 immediately to avoid secondary damage -- reach us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
