In-Place Carpet Drying Is Only Appropriate in Morgan Hill for Certain Situations

In recent years, many advancements have been made in Morgan Hill’s water damage remediation industry. One of these improvements has been the development of in-place carpet drying techniques. However, while these new methods are quite innovative and effective, they are not appropriate for all drying situations and environments.

The Morgan Hill water damage restoration specialists at SERVPRO understand that in-place carpet drying is only beneficial if home interior conditions are right. Otherwise, they know that these remediation techniques could potentially slow drying or even cause additional damage over the long term. The specific scenarios during which in-place carpet drying should not be attempted are when:

  • Carpet has been in contact with water for more than three full days, or signs of contaminants like mold are present
  • Impacted rooms are filled with expensive or sensitive items like electronics, high-end artwork, valuable books, or irreplaceable paperwork
  • The carpet padding is composed of plant/animal fibers or has a water-trapping, non-porous layer
  • Subflooring consists of a vapor barrier, hardwood or laminated floors, or has multiple layers
  • Subfloors appear to have suffered structural damage

In addition to SERVPRO’s extensive carpet restoration expertise, we are also experienced in performing a wide range of emergency water damage services like complete water clean-up jobs, basement flooding remediation, and water damage repairs.
