Water damage can happen at any time: day or night. Timing can complicate your decision on handling the damage, because it could be right before a busy day, or at the end of the day when the office is heading home. Water damage can take some time to restore, so you may decide to wait until its more convenient.  It is not ideal to wait when it comes to water damage.

Carpet, for example, can absorb water quickly, and when left wet over extended periods, structural damages occur that lead to the disintegration of their layered construction. By waiting, carpeting that could have been restored, may have to be disregarded. Our water damage restoration technicians have experience handling carpets and understand the details of water damage to carpeting.

Carpeting is made of various materials including fibers like nylon, wool, polypropylene, or polyester. The primary backing is made from thermoplastic or latex adhesive, while the secondary backing is made from jute or polypropylene. This layered construction is one of the reasons you should not delay water damage restoration in your office. When exposed to moisture for a prolonged period, the adhesives holding the primary fibers deteriorate, leading to irreversible damage, such as delaminating. Stains and foul odors also develop.

When you call SERVPRO of St. Charles City – we are ready to respond. We offer emergency restoration services 7 days a week, 24 hours a day – even on holidays.

Call us at (636) 926-0033 and we will come up with a plan that minimalizes the impact to your business’s busy schedule.
