Restoring Carpets in North Syracuse Homes After Water Damage Involves Several Steps 

Flooring can often be one of the most widely damaged groups of materials after residential water damages occur, as the pooling collects at this lowest portion of the room and directly impacts the materials. Carpeting is one of the most challenging to restore after water damage. 

Water Extraction

To begin water restoration of North Syracuse carpeted floors, our professionals must first remove any trapped water-saturated into this material. As one of the most absorbent installed construction elements, carpeted floors can hold a high volume of water before allowing pooling on their surface. Carpet wands and high-efficiency extraction devices pull water trapped in the carpet and the padding together. 


Drying is one of the unique processes when carpets and padding can be preserved. If the inspection determines that it is viable to dry this flooring, the carpet's borders are removed from installed tack strips along the edge of the room where installed. A centrifugal air mover is placed in the small opening between the unattached top layer of carpet and the underlying padding beneath to begin infusing warm, dry air into this seam. The result is drying both materials simultaneously. 

Deep Cleaning Strategies

Even with efficient drying and restoration that prevented the need for tear-out and reconstruction, extensive and intricate cleaning practices are still necessary to help. Carpet Cleaning Technicians (CCT) of our roster can utilize our powerful deep-cleaning tools from our inventory to restore the appearance of a carpet in several ways. Strategies to improve the appearance and color while removing set-in soils include:

  • Hot Water Extraction
  • Bonnet Cleaning
  • Deluxe Conditioning

Because carpeting is such a standard installation for homes and businesses in the area, it is vital for responding technicians to have appropriate restoration techniques uniquely designed for these materials. Our SERVPRO of North Onondaga County team can help with extracting, drying, and cleaning this popular flooring. Call us anytime disasters strike at (315) 457-3432.
