Water removal and repair of carpets in your Bellevue home can be tricky as they tend to soak up a substantial amount of water and are notoriously difficult to dry. SERVPRO techs use several tools to remove water from the carpets and accelerate their drying.  

SERVPRO techs understand the importance of quickly removing the water soaked into the carpet fibers during Bellevue water damage repair. The longer the water sits in contact with the carpet, the more damage it can cause to the carpet and the floor underneath. The three most used tools to remove the water soaked into the carpet after water spillage include-

  • Carpet wands
  • Deep extraction tools
  • Rider extractors

How do Deep Extraction Tools Work?

Deep extraction tools compress the carpet and pad to squeeze the water out and remove it using the vacuum system of a water extractor. SERVPRO’s water damage repair experts use two types of deep extraction tools in Bellevue homes-

  • Self-propelled extraction tool: An independent motor helps this device to move over a wet carpet at a constant rate. Techs can adjust the speed of these devices and can maneuver them to move in both forward and backward directions. The amount of water the tool extracts depends on the weight to squeeze the water out. Consequently, these tools allow the restorer to "ride" on the unit to provide additional weight.
  • Stationary tool: The device pulls water from the carpet through tiny holes at the unit's base. As there is no motor in these devices, the techs need to manually move them from one spot to another to extract water from the carpet.
