SERVPRO Technicians Have the Tools and Training to Handle New Haven Water Damage

Water damage to the carpet in a New Haven business does not automatically mean it has to be removed. SERVPRO technicians work hard to dry carpet in place when possible to save property owners the cost of replacement or cause the business to be closed for some time for installation of new floor covering. 

Professional water mitigation in a New Haven business can make the difference between saving commercial carpeting or needing to replace it. SERVPRO technicians look at certain aspects to determine if the carpet is a good fit for in-place dryings, such as:

  • Construction materials in the carpet fibers
  • If the backing is made of jute or other organic materials
  • Evidence of mold growth 

Benefits of In-Place Drying

One of the biggest reasons for in-place carpet drying during a water restoration service is to limit the amount of time needed for the building to close. Unless there are hazardous conditions due to the water damage, SERVPRO technicians can rope off areas that define the worksite that allow the business to remain open for business. Additionally, the amount of damage to the carpet since seams do not need to get cut is lessened. The goal for the techs is always to limit the amount of disruption to the client during the water cleanup.

Instances Where In-Place Drying is Not Appropriate

If the water contains sewage, chemicals, or has degraded over 72 hours, drying in place is usually not an option. In cases where the commercial carpeting has been installed over laminate or tile floors but is in good shape, it may be removed for drying outside the building. 

SERVPRO of New Haven at (203) 234-1100 supports local businesses owners with all types and sizes of commercial water mitigation in New Haven.
