Floating (Magic?) Carpet

10/27/2021 (Permalink)

Two air movers with a carpet clipped underneath Air movers can be placed and clipped underneath the carpet to promote drying of the back part of the carpet. This is part of the drying process.

When water damage takes over, our team is ready to take your home back. If you have carpeting in your home, then it would be safe to say that one of your worst nightmares would be flooding or a leak that would soak and stain all your carpet. In this case, after water is properly extracted, the rest of the drying process can be continued. Whether we are placing air movers or you are renting your own, carpet can be “floated” where air movers are placed to blow air under the carpet. The air mover can be clipped to a section of the lifted carpet and the air creates this effect that is similar to the magic carpet in “Aladdin,” creating this flowing movement. If you are doing this on your own, make sure that you don’t have too many air movers putting air under the carpet at the same time. If there are too many air movers, the “floating” movement can become too aggressive and the carpet hitting the ground repeatedly can result in the tac strip separating from the backing. To ensure that your carpeting is maintained, please call on professionals to help. We have the equipment to make sure the job is done right and that we can get your home back to preloss conditions.
