Water Removal Strategies for Carpet and Upholstery by SERVPRO®

Carpets and furniture are among the most commonly affected surfaces in Dallas homes when water damage strikes. Upholstery and carpet fibers can experience swelling, stains, odors, and potential mold growth that can impact the comfort and longevity of fibers and fabrics in the home.

Home water restoration rendered by Dallas SERVPRO professionals can eliminate excess moisture and restore carpet and upholstery fibers to a pre-disaster condition. SERVPRO’s commitment to around-the-clock availability can minimize water exposure time for homeowners’ belongings.

How Water Affects Carpeting and Upholstery

Water damage can have extensive effects on fibers like carpeting, curtains, and upholstery fabric, including the following:

  • Staining and spreading fabric dyes to other surfaces
  • Swelling of fibers affects the structural integrity of carpeting and can delaminate the pad underneath
  • Water can rust or tarnish upholstery screws and warp wood framing in furniture

This damage requires specialized care to preserve furnishings, which SERVPRO can provide to return the property to a prior condition.

SERVPRO Mitigates Carpet and Upholstery Water Damage

SERVPRO water extraction and cleaning for carpet and upholstery can entail the following:

  • Extraction wands are carefully utilized during the cleanup process to thoroughly remove the bulk of water from saturated items. Hot water and cleaning solutions work in tandem, when appropriate, to mitigate the presence of odors and microbes
  • SERVPRO training and documentation include cleaning guidance for various upholstery fibers and fabrics affected by water damage, as well as how to preserve framing, decorative brads, and other aspects of water-damaged furniture
  • SERVPRO drying technologies rely on careful positioning and calculation to ensure the successful prevention of secondary damages to belongings
