What Can Be Done about Stains during Water Damage Repair?
SERVPRO Tackles Stains After Water Damage in Rocky Hill
Even a small water leak can cause stains in your home. For example, a leaking appliance could bring delicate materials into contact with chemical cleaning agents. A flood from outside might bring dirt or contaminants with it.
SERVPRO is on hand to help with stains after water damage in your Rocky Hill home. The most common areas where stains appear are upholstery, rugs, carpets, and throws or scatter pillows. Taking care of your belongings is our priority, which is why we follow this step process for stain removal:
- Remove any excess soil.
- Determine what exactly spilled on the surface, so we know what we are dealing with.
- Determine the type of fiber – sometimes we use burn tests, chemical tests, or gravity tests for this.
Once we have that information, we will let you know the likely outcome and agree to a plan. In the case of water damage, water-based cleaning agents are usually the best. We start with the gentlest cleaner and progress to more potent preparations if necessary. This helps protect the fibers from damage.
