Stairs Carpet Removed
SERVPRO of Northern Rhode Island responded to a home in Central Falls that had experienced a kitchen flood and the water leaked all the way down their basement stairs. Notice the stairs to the left, fully covered in carpet. Underneath that carpet, laid water. This water, if not removed, possessed the potential to cause mold growth. This mold then would have the capability to spread throughout the structure in as little as 48 hours. To prevent this, our crews immediately measured the moisture levels of the stairs. Reading a very high percentage of water, they ripped up the entire carpet and pad. Since they were soaked, our professionals explained to the homeowner that the only way to take care of the problem would be by removal. Our customer was expecting a much longer process and was thrilled with the results.
