Can You Save Your Best Carpet From Mold When It Gets Wet in Cherry Valley?
SERVPRO's Quick Actions can Help Prevent a Mold Infestation
It does not take much for a rug to get wet. Sometimes the culprit is extreme weather or run-off after a storm, but often a broken pipe or appliance is enough to soak a carpet through. After a carpet gets wet, the risk of mold growth is a genuine concern. Mold is a fungus, and as such, it likes to have moisture and an organic food source to sustain it. Unfortunately, carpet fibers are an excellent food source for mold, and once fungus gets into your carpet, it is hard to get it out again.
The best way to save your favorite carpet from mold damage after it gets wet in Cherry Valley is to call SERVPRO at once. The key to saving floor coverings from the fungus is to dry them out swiftly and thoroughly, so the spores do not have a chance to grow. Our IICRC-certified technicians have the skills and equipment necessary to dry your carpet fast.
When our team arrives, we start by extracting as much water from the carpet as possible. We understand that thorough extraction is key to the success of the drying process, which is why we use special tools such as wands and make several passes.
After extraction, the next step is drying your carpet. SERVPRO uses three types of air mover for optimum performance. Centrifugal air movers sit atop the carpet and blow air directly over the surface to encourage evaporation. Low profile air movers are similar to centrifugal and are used to direct air over the carpet. Low profile units can also be stacked and are light enough to move around. Finally, we use downdraft machines that pull warmer air downwards and spread it across the carpet. Downdraft units are useful for drying large areas.
Dehumidifiers are used to lower the moisture level in the air and hasten the drying process.
We understand that thorough drying is the only protection against mold growth. We use a range of equipment including moisture probes and penetrating moisture meters to measure the amount of dampness and make sure the job is complete.
