Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

The Method to Our Restoration Process

Water Being Extracted If you want your disaster to be handled the right way please call SERVPRO of Iowa City/Coralville at 319-338-8550.

Recently we received a job from a client that dealt with a carpet that had water and pet damage which means we have to be strategic when restoring it to the preloss condition. The damage was deeply embedded into the carpet, especially with the extreme heat the Midwest has faced. 

Do you know how we remove deeply rooted water/odor damage; well, we pour more water on it. You read that correctly; with deeply ingrained damage, we need to take the necessary steps, and our crew will create a structure by using collapsible sides lined with 6-millimeter plastic to create a bath. I know this is getting ironic; the bath is then added with our SERVPRO products, Urine Odor and Stain Remover, which gets soaked into the carpet for an hour, causing the severe stuck-on damage to be lifted and off the rug. 

We don’t stop there; we use our rotary machine to agitate the rug even more, causing the remaining damage to be lifted off the ground. Once this process is completed, we empty the water and use the water claw to extract the rug, with the final step being providing a last cosmetic clean, restoring it to the preloss condition.
