SERVPRO Commercial Flooring Cleanup for Water-Damaged Carpet

Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-accredited SERVPRO techs typically deploy specialized carpet wands for water extraction, especially with glue-down carpet. Heavier-duty devices, like rover vacuums, may be ideal for thicker, more heavy-duty carpeting. Still, an initial pass with a carpet wand is usually sufficient for preventing further water migration before using other devices.

Carpet extractor wands can be used for in-place moisture removal in situations where:

  • The carpet pad is made of synthetic fibers rather than organic ones like jute
  • Moisture exposure is less than 72 hours old and caused by a category 1–or clean water–disaster
  • The carpeting does not show signs of mold or microbial growth
  • There are no vapor barriers present or multiple layers of subflooring to inspect and dry beneath the carpet
  • The subflooring underneath is intact and does not require mitigation

SERVPRO of Newark can be reached at (302) 733-7933 to provide “Like it never even happened,” mitigation and restoration services.
