Carpet Drying after Water Migration in a Bedroom
After an unexpected heavy rainfall, a one-story homeowner in Amarillo, TX, had her bedroom carpet soak through. The water seeped into the carpet padding, which resulted in mildew smells and discomfort for her children.
As moisture seeps into the flooring system, it begins to affect other parts of the structure. For example, floors swell, crack and buckle, doors stick or refuse to shut, and drywall cracks. As the water evaporates, mold begins to grow. The affected area becomes a breeding ground for mold and spores, which can permeate the walls. Mold can cause health effects.
The water must be extracted to stop further damage. SERVPRO of West Amarillo used a truck-mounted system for this obstacle, which removed the water quickly and thoroughly. Our systems dry carpets, cabinets, walls, and other surfaces in a matter of hours. In this case, less than 18 hours passed from the time the homeowner noticed the water until it dried out.
Our Amarillo Water Damage Restoration crew was efficient and thorough. We also worked to ensure a healthy and safe environment for our client and her family.
