SERVPRO Has a Plan for Your Homes Water Damage, You should too

Drying and extraction are not one-size-fits-all solutions for the various saturated materials and wet areas of your Frederick home. Damp carpeting, for example, can be an ideal location for the development of mold colonies, so it is essential that drying these materials begins as quickly as possible. To restore carpeted areas without the need for widespread controlled demolition and reinstallation, our SERVPRO professionals can respond to your emergency 24/7.

As with all instances of water damage to Frederick homes, our professionals must first determine the severity of the situation. We have many moisture detection tools from hygrometers and probing detectors to surface meters and thermography. With a combination of these approaches, our technicians can map the spread of water migration and the concentration of moisture trapped in carpet fibers, padding, and saturating into the subflooring material.

Our SERVPRO technicians have access to some of the most powerful and efficient extraction and drying tools in the water restoration industry. For carpets, we often utilize light wands for suitable removal of the moisture trapped in the layers, though this often works best when the padding is not getting saved. Weighted extractors and air movers can force moisture to the surface and evaporate or extract this lingering wetness to protect installed flooring.

Our professionals seek to provide your home with the most efficient and cost-effective recovery solutions, which might not always hinge on preserving installed carpeting. There might be many situations where removing saturated flooring to protect subflooring OSB or plywood could be more cost-effective than risking the penetration of moisture into this structural element. We have a team of licensed in-house contractors that can help with carpet removal, repair, and reinstallation, where it fits into the work getting done.

No matter how our SERVPRO of Frederick County team can help after a water loss incident, our rapid response team is ready. We know that water emergencies can happen without warning and the critical need for restoration within the first 48 hours. Give our professionals a call anytime that you need us at (301) 662-1747.
