If your home has experienced heavy rain, snow or even a harsh storm, you might need professional water extraction services. Despite what you might think, removing water from a property—and making sure it’s completely dry—isn’t a do-it-yourself project.


Here at West Side Carpet Cleaning, we want to keep our homeowners informed. If you’re facing wet upholstery, a soggy office and chairs exposed to rainwater—don’t worry. We’re here to help you by providing in-depth water extraction services. First, however, let’s cover the process’s basics.


Drying and Dehumidification

Once a property has been examined for critical safety issues, your West Side Carpet Cleaning team will arrive. Then, the drying and dehumidification process can begin. Our professionals can manipulate your home’s temperature and relative humidity, removing any existing moisture. By using specialized, industrial dehumidifiers and air movers, West Side Carpet Cleaning technicians can remove hard-to-access moisture while protecting your home’s building materials.



Follow-Up Monitoring

Once the drying is underway, your technician team will monitor your home closely. During this phase, advanced monitoring equipment is used to track the process. Both floors and walls are monitored, assuring your home’s overall safety.


While your home is monitored, the industrial-grade dehumidifiers are still hard at work. They prevent secondary water damage, like floor warping, wall warping, furniture warping and carpet swelling. Meanwhile, the high-speed air movers will create airflow across your home’s pads, carpets, furniture, and walls. The air movers accelerate moisture evaporation, further enhancing the drying process.



What About Emergency Water Removal?

In some cases, a home might need emergency services. Fortunately, West Side Carpet Cleaning offers immediate water removal options. Depending on the amount of water present, your technicians can use heavy duty submersible pumps. These pumps can be used in your basement and first floor alike.


Industrial strength wet-and-dry vacuums, too, can be used. When paired with the submersible pumps, these vacuums greatly reduce the drying time—preventing mold, mildew and secondary water damage. All carpet pads and carpets are examined thoroughly, of course. Because carpets are often the first household items to take heavy water damage, they’re our priority when reviving your home.
