Water Damage to Your Carpet

11/8/2021 (Permalink)

The carpet in our homes is often exposed to water from various sources like leaks in bathrooms and kitchens. SERVPRO of Elizabeth City/Outer Banks takes a repair, not replace stance on our remediation services because we understand that fully replacing things that could potentially be repaired is a hassle. Here are some advantages of our stance:

  • Less disruption to your home and life
  • Less damage to your carpet and a smaller chance of carpet delamination
  • Often cheaper than replacing the carpet all together

It is, however, important to understand that there are some scenarios where carpet must be removed, and repair/drying is not an option:

  • When the carpet has been exposed for more than 72 hours
  • Carpet is installed overtop of other flooring like laminate or hardwood
  • Water damage is caused by unsanitary water (Grey or Black Water)

The ability to repair and fully dry your carpet is contingent on among other things, our ability to get there fast and address the issue, so if your carpet has suffered from water damage do not delay and give us a call! We’re here to help 24/7, 365 days a year.
