Water Damaged Carpet in Minnetonka and Wayzata
We often get calls from customers who for one reason or another suffered water damage in their home and ended up with a wet or soaking carpet. The first question we are typically asked is whether the carpet will "dry itself"?
The quick answer is no. Carpet, when left wet can lead to carpet delaminanting. This is when the glue that holds the backing to the main carpet starts to break down and seperate.
The good news is that most carpet that is damaged by water can be saved. The key is getting as much moisture out of it as quickly as possible and then creating an environment where any remaining moisture will be evaportated from it through dehumidification.
Remember, time is of the essense -- the longer a carpet sits wet the tougher it will be to restore it!
