SERVPRO Tackles Water Damage Restoration From Attic Leak in Seal Beach Home

In this Seal Beach home, the stark white carpet was an investment, and ceiling leaks from water damage in the attic dripped filthy water onto this clean, well-kept carpet in this Seal Beach home. The homeowner assumed their newly installed floor covering in their Seal Beach property was beyond water damage restoration.

Fast Action by The Seal Beach Homeowner Calling SERVPRO Saved the Carpet

As the Before Photo shows, a large amount of dirty water dripped down from the roof's damage. Rainwater entered the attic and fell into the living room as ceiling leaks. SERVPRO technicians determined the leaking roof source from storms and set up temporary tarping to stop any further water from entering the home during the water damage remediation. Because the homeowner called in SERVPRO quickly after the initial event in the Seal Beach home, the techs felt the carpet had a good chance for a full restoration once the water cleanup actions were completed.

SERVPRO Gives Special Attention During Water Damage Remediation in Seal Beach Homes

Before cleaning the white carpet in the Seal Beach home, the SERVPRO techs extracted the water using portable pumps to remove the maximum moisture. Since carpets in Seal Beach homes can be constructed of a host of materials, the fibers must get tested before any cleaning solutions get used. Through fiber tests, SERVPRO techs can choose cleaning agents explicitly made for carpet that will not shrink nor damage the fibers for the best outcome from water damage remediation. SERVPRO IICRC certified technicians undergo comprehensive training to become CCT carpet cleaning technicians, so they know how to troubleshoot even brand new white carpet for the best outcome.

Final Steps For Water Damage Remediation for the White Seal Beach Carpet by SERVPRO

Once the water and initial stains were lifted from the Seal Beach carpet, the SERVPRO technicians moved on to shampooing the carpet and using hot water extraction equipment to leave the carpet not only stain-free but also sanitized. The hot water extraction works by mixing water with gentle detergents, which then gets heated in a compartment on the cleaning equipment. SERVPRO has several proprietary solutions to use on carpets with different fiber types and construction materials. The hot, soapy liquid gets injected using high pressure onto the stains in the carpet pile. This action by SERVPRO equipment dislodges the dirt, which is then collected using suction. The extraction pulls up 95% of the moisture on average, meaning it does not leave the fibers saturated and instead ready for drying.

As seen in the After Photo in the Seal Beach home, SERVPRO has several air movers and dehumidification equipment on the spotless Seal Beach carpet. The techs dried the carpet leaving the furniture in place to limit disruptions to the Seal Beach home during the water damage restoration. Once the water clean up completes, SERVPRO walked the homeowner through the work done to ensure that she was pleased with the job done in her Seal Beach property.
