The insurance industry tells us that 40% of all property damage insurance claims are from water damage, and 60% of all water damage insurance claims are for the replacement of carpets and pads.
When carpet gets wet, it loses some of its structural integrity. This is the worst time to detach a carpet, as it is feeling the effects of water and is in its weakest state.
Advanced Restoration's use of the Hydro-X Extreme Extractor during the water damage restoration process allows us to extract 95% of the water from carpeting AND padding. This new technology has only come about in recent years.
Before, it was imperative that the carpeting be detached, which caused most of the damage, and the padding had to be removed because there was no way to get all of the water out of the padding.
Now with the Hydro-X Extreme Extractor, Advanced Restoration has the ability to remove the most water and dry out the wet building materials in place, with very little disturbance to the integrity of the carpet or the structure.
The faster the carpet is extracted and dried, the stronger the carpet fibers become.
