Carpet Drying Services Tucson

Water Damage Carpet Drying Services Tucson If the carpet pad is not replaced the carpet will wick moisture back into it. An attempt was made to dry the carpet surface but was not a solution.

We recently received a call from a Tucson homeowner who had a flood develop in her bathroom which left a lot of water in her hallway and living room. She called a plumber to fix the source of the leak. The plumber fixed the leak and offered to dry her carpet for an additional fee. She agreed, he brought in a couple of commercial fans and left them on overnight to dry the property. In the morning he came back to retrieve the fans and the carpet was dry to the touch.

After about a week the homeowner began to notice an odd smell in her home and called around to different carpet drying companies. She settled on our SERVPRO to come out and take a look. After one of our trained staff members heard what had happened he knew instantly the carpet pad, and the carpet drying in general had not been done correctly.

Mold growth had begun in the carpet pad which was attributing to the odd, funky smell in the home. The carpet would have to pulled up and the damp carpet pad underneath would have to be disposed of and replaced. Five to six commercial drying fans would be placed in strategic areas around the living room to ensure proper air flow and would be left running for three days before reinstallation of the pad and carpeting could be done. We gave her a free estimate on neccessary repairs and she gave us a call a couple of days later to begin the work.

Although many plumbers are licensed & bonded in the field of plumbing, not all of them are equipped to deal with a severely water damaged property, nor do all of them follow IICRC principles & policies when drying carpets or flood damaged flooring. In the Tucson, Green Valley, and Sahuarita areas SERVPRO is the company to call for carpet drying services.
