Carpet Delamination: What is it and How to Prevent it
Carpet delamination is when the layers of carpet separate from each other. Many things can cause delamination, and some of the most common are:
- Improper Manufacturing
- Improper Installation
- Heavy Traffic
- High Moisture Content
- Padding Quality
- Pet Urine
Can Carpet be Saved from Delamination after Water Damage?
Yes, it can if you act quickly. As soon as water/moisture touches the carpet fibers, it will begin to slowly break down the layers of the carpet. So, the longer the carpet is wet, the greater risk of delamination. Fortunately, the experts of SERVPRO of Lexington/Thomasville are well-versed in water loss and preventing secondary damages. We can restore your carpet to preloss conditions saving you both time and money. Our team of highly trained professionals will extract the moisture from your carpet and then set up fans and dehumidifiers. This will ensure not only that your carpet is dried but prevents any secondary issues such as mold or delamination.
