Cotton is Common in Woven Carpet Flooring and Can be Heavily Damaged by Moisture in North Kingstown Properties

As a common fiber element for carpeting, its use has many advantages, including its long life and its colorfastness. One of the disadvantages to any cotton fabrics or flooring types is the fact that these materials can absorb more than twenty percent of their weight in water before even feeling damp to the touch. By the time you notice the issue, more than the carpeting layer may have become affected.

Extracting Water from Cotton Carpets

Water damage in North Kingstown requires several direct strategies to address and overcome. With standing water concerns or trapped moisture in woven carpets, specific tools can help collect and discharge the water and potentially protect the installed materials. Surface pooling must get addressed first if it exists, which often happens with submersible pumps or truck-mount extractors with attachments for concentrated use. Removing trapped water relies on:

  • Carpet wands
  • Weighted extractors
  • Wet vacuums

Cleaning Carpets After Water Damage 

Carpets often require cleaning to look and feel their best after water damage or flooding. We have deluxe conditioning options and hot water extraction machines to remove soils in the flooring and restore the brightness and color.

Water damage can compromise carpeting fast, but our SERVPRO of Washington County team can help. We have premier cleaning strategies and products available when you call (401) 315-2337.
