SERVPRO Mitigation Uses Water Extractors, Air Movers, and Dehumidifiers in Fort Pierce

Plumbing leaks can quickly soak carpets and items sitting on the rug in Fort Pierce homes. Water can work its way through the carpet to the underpad. Sometimes even the subfloor will be wet before the leak is discovered. Immediately turn off the main water valve. Many homeowners are worried that their carpets will need to be removed and damaged in the process. They also are concerned that the under padding will disintegrate while being removed.

SERVPRO provides water mitigation services in Fort Pierce and the surrounding area. When we receive calls from our clients for plumbing leaks, our phone reps coach the client to shut off the water source. Turning off the primary water source limits further damage. We urge them to remove anything resting on the floor. Colored items can leach some colors into the carpet, which is not removeable in many cases. If there is a concern about electrical issues, we urge them to stay away from the area to avoid potential electrical shocks.

We do not need to remove all carpets and underpadding when they become soaked with water. We use a combination of weighted extractors to remove water and moisture from the carpet and under padding. We also use powerful truck-mounted vacuums to remove water and moisture from the carpet and underpad. We deploy air movers and dehumidifiers to reduce the humidity levels to a normal range while drying carpeting and padding.

SERVPRO may recommend carpet removal if the carpet has delaminated or cannot be dried sufficiently to mitigate further damage to subfloors or threats from mold contamination. Our services include:

  • Water damage remediation and drying
  • Water clean-up
  • Water damage restoration
