Can SERVPRO Clean Pet Beds During Water Mitigation?

SERVPRO knows how much our pets are more like family, instead of pets. SERVPRO can be there for your furry family too.

Orlando Pet Owners Want to Know What Will Happen During Water Mitigation

Orlando pet owners know how much fun pets can be – and how much time and money they take. It is worth the investment to take good care of your pet, but of course, owners are keen to save money where possible.

There are numerous reasons you might need water mitigation in Orlando, such as a burst pipe or leaking appliance. If you happen to suffer water damage near where your pet sleeps, you might find their bed gets saturated. 

What happens when a pet bed gets water damage?

Water damage has a range of effects, including:

  • Discoloration or color bleeding on the surface
  • An unpleasant wet odor
  • The risk of mold growth

Should owners throw pet beds away?

Pet beds are inexpensive, and you might decide it is easier to replace it after water mitigation. However, if your pet is especially attached to their bed or you would rather clean it, SERVPRO can help. 

How can SERVPRO help?

Our technicians can use spot cleaning or even wet fogging to cleanse and deodorize textiles, including your dog or cat’s favorite bed. We also send items to our cleaning facility for specialist hydraulic cleaning, which is gentle and environmentally friendly, yet powerful.

Drying is an integral part of water mitigation. Our techs will prop the bed up so air can move around it, then place air movers and dehumidifiers around it to encourage water evaporation. We can also monitor the moisture in the environment during drying to ensure the best results.

Can all kinds of pet beds be salvaged?

If you have a smaller pet, like a gerbil or guinea pig, that uses straw or wood shavings as bedding, these must be tossed out and replaced. However, as they are relatively cheap and easy to get, we hope that will not be too inconvenient.

In many cases, pet beds can be cleaned. This does not only include store-bought beds. It also includes:

  • Their favorite blankets
  • Mattresses and pads
  • That corner of the sofa they always sleep on

If you are worried about where your pet will sleep after water mitigation, call SERVPRO of South Orange County at (407) 226-2621.
