Deep Extraction Tools for Saturated Carpeting in Jacksonville Home 

After natural disasters like hurricanes and severe weather events, Jacksonville homes can begin to experience both water loss and flood loss conditions depending on the damage and exposures of their home. Standing water is a substantial threat to properties as it can begin to move past the surface of exposed materials nearly immediately. In flooring options like carpeting, these materials, the padding, and even structural supports beneath including joists become at risk for deterioration. 

The saturation of the carpeting in your home can be costly enough. Adding additional water damage in Jacksonville properties shows the need for a fast response in the critical hours following a loss incident. If the flooding of carpets was the result of rainwater driven into the interior by hurricane-force winds, there is a chance to salvage them. However, if the drenching results from contaminated groundwater – black water – then discarding these materials is the only option.  

Our SERVPRO professionals have a fast and dedicated response, with a staffed emergency line 24/7 to ensure that no customer ever waits for the restoration work that their home needs. Rapid water extraction can mitigate the clean or gray water-soaked carpets and prevent the need to discard them. With storms that could have destroyed thousands of structures on the coast like Hurricane Dorian, having a team available when you need it can be the difference between total losses and salvageable situations. 

We utilize many extraction tools to help address the standing water in your home with our arrival. Especially for carpets and other softer materials and textiles, we have numerous options that can suit the individual needs of homes throughout the area. 


Much as the name might suggest, we have several options that can move through an affected area at a consistent speed regulated by the controlling technician. Weighted extractors like our ROVER, which often are units that our technicians ride on to provide additional weight, can force moisture to the surface from the padding. This water can get collected by an onboard vacuum system and discharged to a drain or the outside. 


We also have weighted extractors for carpeting and similar materials that must get set in a specific area and then moved and reset when a new area needs extraction. These machines also rely on their heft to force moisture to the surface and an onboard vacuum. Every 10-15 seconds of extraction, the unit can get moved to another portion. Our most powerful stationary tools can boast a recovery area of 200 square inches at once. 

We strive to provide every weather and flood-damaged home with a fast and powerful recovery solution that protects your home from costlier avenues like reconstruction and renovation. Whenever disaster strikes, you can count on the fast response and experience of our SERVPRO of Jacksonville South team to make it “Like it never even happened.” Call us today at (904) 762-8066.
