Commercial Water Cleanup Technicians in Los Angeles Discuss Carpet Spot Removal Procedures

If any type of water pipe ever breaks inside your Los Angeles sales office, the moisture can cause many problems with your carpet. Any time we conduct commercial water cleanup, our SERVPRO crew starts by inspecting your carpet for damage. Depending on how long moisture has been leaking, a large area of your carpets could get saturated. When carpet gets wet, its fibers can pull away from its paper backing, ruining its structural integrity.

Water Cleanup

In most situations, the pad underneath your carpet must be removed. However, if it is possible during your commercial water cleanup project in Los Angeles, we save your carpet and pad. If the problem is noticed soon enough, we can sometimes remove all moisture from your carpets using extraction and drying procedures. During the extraction phase, we use heavy-duty extractors and specialized tools to compress your carpet and pad to remove as much moisture as possible. Then, we can "float" your carpets by putting an air mover underneath them to create airflow on your carpet's backside and your subflooring material.

In many situations, even if the source of the leak inside your sales headquarters is a clean water pipe, your carpet can get stained after it is dried out. After our SERVPRO team removes all of the moisture from your carpet and puts it back together, we conduct cleaning procedures. To help remove dark stains, we often conduct spot removal procedures as a part of the fabric cleansing process.

The first step to spot removal is to remove as much of the material that caused the stain as possible. Next, we figure out what type of substance caused the stain. Sometimes other stains from other substances besides water could be present.

Once we know what caused the stain, we then figure out what type of fibers make up your office carpet. The type of stain and fibers dictate which kind of spot remover we decide to use on your tough stains. Once we pick the best option at our disposal, our SERVPRO technicians apply the remover and let it set. If it is required, we can agitate the stain while the spot remover is soaking into the carpet. Lastly, we steam clean and rinse your carpets once the spot remover has had time to soak into your carpet fibers.
