The first step in professional water damage restoration is removing all moisture possible from the structure. The less water remaining in materials such as carpets means less time to properly dry down.
Pictured is our Weighted Extraction Unit which removes water from carpets and pad with extraordinary efficiency. Not all water extraction methods are equal. While a portable wet / dry vacuum may remove a lot of water, it is not getting it all. Same can be said for rental carpet cleaner units, they simply don't have the extraction power of professional units.
Water left behind not only increases the time to effectively dry your property; it creates an unhealthy environment. Moisture left behind in carpets and pad can be a breading ground for bacteria and possible mold growth. Do not take that chance. Call SERVPRO of Carthage-Joplin if you have suffered a flood in your home or business.
