Why Water Cleanup Services Are Vital Before Carpet Reinstallation In Your Fort Collins Home

To clean your moderately soiled carpet and address its sticky or stiff fibers, you need professional water cleanup services. The most common cleaning method we use when attending to such concerns is hot water extraction (HWE), also known as steam cleaning. We are going to look at the steps we follow when using this cleaning method and how we reinstall the carpet and replace the pad in your Fort Collins property. The goal is to return the building to its earlier state.

When we use hot water extraction as a water cleanup method when attending to water events in Fort Collins, a mixture of the cleaning agents and hot water is punt under high pressure and propelled into the carpet. When that happens, the debris, dirt, grime in the carpet gets loosened. With the help of a vacuum system, we can then remove the loosened particles from the surface. When dealing with low pile carpets, we prefer using shampoo as a cleaning product.

Some carpet cleaning procedures may force our SERVPRO technicians to disengage the carpet and detach the pad. Before we can reinstall the carpet, we have to prepare the floor. For instance, we make sure the subfloor is level and thoroughly dry. If necessary, we can vacuum and sweep to remove any debris, as well as move furniture and doors as required. It is our work to check whether the carpet has suffered delamination, has mildew damage, tears, or weak seams.

Our SERVPRO technicians can also reinstall the tackless strip, which should be around 2/3 the carpet's thickness. When installing a new pad, we make sure it is of the same density, thickness, and type as the one that was detached. When stretching the carpet during reinstallation, we use a knee kicker for smaller areas such as in closets and locations that are equal to or less than six feet. Otherwise, we use a power stretcher when the area exceeds six feet.
