Why SERVPRO? We Can Handle Any Size Disaster- Part 1
We are here to help you no matter the size of the disaster...from needing your carpet cleaned to a home that has been flooded. We want to serve you. Unfortunately here in Vincennes, flooding could occur from the Wabash river. That is particularly important for carpets. After they become soaked, the glue holding the layers together weakens significantly, and delamination, or separation of the layers, can occur. Our crews here at SERVPRO of Vincennes know to carefully monitor all three components to prevent tearing carpets apart, as well as overheating the already damaged wood floorboards, cracking and splintering them.
After completing water removal, our technician then lift the carpets, remove the carpet pad, and dry the floor using air movers and fans to force warm air over and under the carpet while also drawing out the damp air and sending it outside the nearest window or another exit. Once completed, they insert a new pad and then stretch the carpet back in place.
Water damage can occur if just a few inches of water are lurking on your floor, but say a huge flood comes though town..there is a high chance that mold will occur. Check out our next blog titled Why SERVPRO? We Can Handle Any Size Disaster-Part 2
