Finding Wet Drywall

If you had a water damage on any of your floors there might be damage beyond what you can see. Just because the carpet or flooring feels dry doesn't mean the water didn't soak in somewhere else. That is why SERVPRO has moisture meters to help see the unseen damage that might be there.

What is carpet delamination?

When carpet is manufactured it is created with two backings. In the most common types of carpets, the yarn is secured into the primary backing by synthetic latex, and a secondary backing (or cushion) is attached with a bonding agent or adhesive to provide further pile-yarn stability and to add dimensional stability to the carpet structure. This secondary backing also helps in ease of installation by moving more easily over the surface of the floor. Carpet delamination is a condition where the secondary backing of the carpet is detached from the primary backing.

How can this happen? There are a variety of ways including, improper installation and pet damage. 

A carpet loses 80% to 85% of its strength when it is wet. That’s why it is so important to call a professional such as SERVPRO as soon as water damage occurs.
