Is Carpeting Salvageable After Commercial Water Damage in West Hollywood?
Restoring Carpets and Controlling Odor for Commercial Flood Damage in West Hollywood
As a property manager of an office block, you are responsible for providing clean working conditions for employees. Flooding may cause temporary closure until full restoration occurs within the property. These issues are time sensitive as closures can cause a loss of revenue. We offer an expert solution to property damages by providing IICRC qualified technicians to restore them.
Typical office carpeting can present a problem when dealing with commercial flood damage in West Hollywood. If flooding has occurred overnight, the fabric in carpets can absorb moisture. Wet fabric is up to 50% weaker, so appropriate care must be taken to avoid causing further damages.
We train SERVPRO technicians in the removal and remediation of carpets. We may have to remove them temporarily to inspect the subfloor and see how far the damage goes. Using moisture meters that can penetrate the surface, we can accurately assess how much water has been absorbed and take appropriate steps to dry it. This process can be an essential part of controlling microbial growth.
Carpet pads, placed between the subfloor and the underlayer of the carpet, usually have to be removed and disposed. These porous materials break apart when exposed to water but are usually cost-effective to replace. Before we relay carpets, SERVPRO treats both sides with anti-microbial chemicals to prevent mold from appearing after the service is complete.
To completely return a property to its preloss condition, SERVPRO can thoroughly deodorize the affected area. Water that enters a property can loosen dirt and debris, or bring in odor-producing bacteria. It is vital to re-create the conditions in which the odor particles entered the property to mitigate against it. Using deodorant solution we can cover a large surface area and get your business ready for employees.
