We can help............ DISASTER RESTORATION
WATER / FIRE CLEAN-UP
In one square yard of carpet and padding, 3-5 gallons of water can be stored. Water weighs 8.34 pounds per gallon of water.
One of the biggest problems with water disasters is the effect on carpets and floors. Envirotek Service understands the issues and provides fast, on-site carpet and wood floor drying.
On-site Carpet Drying
Here's what your Envirotek Service professional considers when drying carpet:
- Age and Condition of carpet
If a carpet is so old that it is a better value to replace than attempt restoration, ServiceMaster Preferred Services will let you know which makes the most financial sense. ServiceMaster Preferred Services uses industry resources to help determine the exact value of carpet.
- Length of time carpet was exposed to water
Most carpets can withstand water for up to three days. Immediate response to your loss is critical. In most cases ServiceMaster Preferred Services can be at your site within two to four hours.
- Type of Water
Types of water affect the restoration process.
- Clean water: water from a clean source with no debris
- Grey water: water that is not necessarily clean but is not hazardous (washing machine and dishwasher overflow, for example)
- Black water: sewage backup or runoff water
These losses are hazardous and should be handled with caution.
- Water Temperature
The temperature of the water is important as well. For example, a hot water heater with very warm water will affect the glue used to hold the carpet fibers together.
