The longer water stands in your property, the more harm that is caused, the more damage is done, and the more likely mold is to grow.
One way to make the carpet drying process go faster is by using a weighted extraction system. The water removal technician will essentially walk with the tool throughout the wet area and press the tool down into the carpet, where the extraction tool then begins sucking up any water through the vacuum the tool is attached to, including any water soaked into the carpet’s padding or underlay.
a weighted extraction tool can remove 97% of any moisture in your carpets, giving you a BIG headstart in the water extraction process and helping ensure your wet carpets are dried more quickly. Of course, once the extraction tool has been used, SERVPRO of Sumter will set air movers throughout the affected area to finish the drying process.
