Can My Carpets Be Saved?

8/8/2019 (Permalink)


The most common thing we hear after a water damage to your home is "Can my carpets be saved?" Once the damage has occurred, the technician will evaluate the extent of the damage to determine whether or not the carpet will need to be replaced. 

Step 1: Call SERVPRO of Winooski/Stowe

In most cases your insurance company will prefer that you work with professionals, and may provide coverage if you're not responding to a water damage promptly. Water damage restoration professionals will provide you with expert advice concerning water damage to your home. 

Stage 2: Take Note of Exposure Time 

If the carpets in your home or business have been saturated for longer than 72 hours, it would be in your best interest to replace them. Generally when carpets go under extreme saturation and are not dried properly, mold spurs will start to grow within the carpet. 

Stage 3: Where Did the Water Come From? 

One of the most important things to consider after a water damage is to find the source of the flooding. Depending on the type of water determines the course of action you would have to take. The most risk comes along with sewer or groundwater. Our technicians are trained in identifying the different types of water depending on their origin.

Step 4: Consider Your Course of Action 

When starting the remediation process, a few different options will be presented to you. You should consider the time, inconvenience, cost, and safety before making a decision. Often times carpet removal is an option, due to the extent and type of damage.
