Do Carpeted Floors Increase the Urgency of Water Cleanup for Your Orlando Office?

10/6/2021 (Permalink)

Carpet is the flooring of choice for offices, and water can damage it. SERVPRO is always on call to handle your water damage restoration needs.

SERVPRO Expedites Water Removal to Prevent Advanced Soiling and Structural Damage

Water discharge can be accidental or negligent. It can also happen at any time, day or night. The timing can complicate decision-making because you might not be ready to embark on an extensive water cleanup process at certain times, such as the close of the day, since the process can stretch late into the night.

It is not ideal to delay water cleanup at your Orlando office, especially if the affected floors are carpeted. Carpets absorb water quickly, and when left wet over extended periods, structural damages occur that lead to the disintegration of their layered construction. Water restoration technicians from SERVPRO have significant experience dealing with carpets and therefore understand intricate details of water damage to carpeting.

Your Office Carpet is a Layered Amalgamation of Various Materials, Including:

  • Fibers like nylon, wool, polypropylene, or polyester
  • Primary backing made from thermoplastic or latex adhesive
  • Secondary backing made from jute or polypropylene

That layered construction is one of the reasons you should not delay water removal from your office, among other reasons. After prolonged exposure to moisture, the adhesives holding the primary fibers to the backing deteriorate, leading to irreversible damage such as delaminating. Stains and foul odors are other severe issues that develop.

Since SERVPRO crews can clean up your property even after hours, you should take advantage to enjoy the convenience and prevent a host of secondary problems and costs that would otherwise pile up.

Cleanup involves several processes, including:

  • A thorough extraction of pooling water from floor surfaces
  • Cleaning using hot water extraction, bonnet cleaning, or showcase
  • Drying the carpet flat or by floating

SERVPRO of South Orange County takes water cleanup exercises seriously. Call us at (407) 226-2621 to take care of a water spill, “Like it never even happened.”
