Can water damaged carpet be saved?

Can water damaged carpet in your Cleveland, OH home be saved? The answer is yes, most water damaged carpet can be saved, if it is dried quickly. Not only quickly but properly as well. The biggest factor to determine if your carpet can be saved is what category of water it has been affected with. Clear water? Yes. Gray or Black water? The carpet will need to be removed.

The longer water sits, puts you at greater risk for mold to begin to develop.

When SERVPRO of Parma/Seven Hills arrives at your home, our certified technicians will quickly begin to extract the water out of the carpet. Once they have extracted as much water as they can they inspect it for damage. Our mentality approaching any type of water cleanup or water removal is to restore as much as we can.

A common problem with water damaged carpet is, if not dried quickly there will be delamination and mildew damage. Our Technicians will then inspect the carpet backing to see if the carpet backing latex adhesive looks sound, or if there is any mold or delamination. We cannot stress enough how important a quick response is when you are in need of water damage repair. 

Aside from mold and mildew beginning to develop, if the water is not clean water, your carpet needs to be removed completely. For instance, if you have sewage or flooding from outside water, your carpet will have been saturated with dangerous bacteria.
