Carpet Water Damage Restoration

9/4/2018 (Permalink)

You can see that our professionals have set several air movers along the sides of the wall and a large dehumidifier at the end of the hall.


Here at SERVPRO of East Sacramento/West-Arden Arcade, we use lots of different equipment and tools in order to properly remediate water damage done to carpets. 

  • Moisture detectors, hygrometers, and other meters measure the extent of moisture saturation.
  • Infrared cameras may be used to find “hidden” water behind walls and ceilings.
  • Submersible and gas-powered pumps are used for continuous pumping of high-level water.
  • Truck-mounted and portable extraction units perform efficient water removal.

Water Extraction

Our highly trained technicians will begin the water removal process almost as soon as they are on site. Depending on the amount of water, we may use powerful submersible pumps in addition to industrial strength, wet/dry vacuums and weighted extractors. Removing most of the water helps reduce drying time and helps prevent secondary water damage and mold and bacterial growth.

Drying and Dehumidification

Our professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers to dry your home or business. We’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials return to acceptable drying goals.

Air movers are designed to circulate air around a room that is being dehumidified.
Dehumidifiers work by extracting the water out of the air.
When the dehumidified air is circulated in front of the wet surface, the water is able to evaporate easier.

If your carpet has been affected by water damage, give the pros a call at 916-285-7257! We would be happy to check it out for you.
