Drying Commercial Carpet
Commercial properties need to keep their business running more often than not, so when water damages these properties, time is of the essence. In this church, a coffee maker’s water supply line burst, flooding the room and hallway with water. In many commercial buildings, the carpet that is used is glued directly to the concrete and does not typically have a pad installed between the carpet and the concrete. This can make the drying process more simple, but drying may take longer. Cove base is pulled off of the wall and holes are poked behind where the cove base was glued in order to dry the walls and carpet more effectively. After the drying process has been completed, the cove base is reinstalled and the affected area is left "Like it never even happened."
