It can lead to mold growth and rotting which are harmful to your health and the structural integrity of your home. Our technicians are trained experts who know how to properly repair your flood damage. Our emergency flood response is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

What type of equipment do we use, how do we find the water and what systems are used?
The most advanced structural drying systems on the market are used by Carpet Pro Water Restoration. We have an extensive collection of the best meters available to find the water and to make sure we are drying your structure. Each Technician arrives with their very own Inspection Kit to perform a thorough inspection of the affected areas of your home or business.
Our technician’s have an extensive selection of meters to find where the water is coming from, how to prevent further damage, stop the water and to make sure the project is monitored and documented on a daily basis. Does the Technician’s Meter Kit look like this? We feel that having the right meters to find the water and moisture is one of the most important aspects of our job. The thermal imaging cameras are a great tool, but will only show you surface temperatures of the wall, but you still need the proper tools to find all of the water.
Paperwork & Documentation!
The most important process in mitigating your loss is documentation and daily monitoring of your drying project. After all of the Structural Drying Equipment is placed, monitoring the drying process is crucial. On a daily basis your Drying Specialist will need to take readings, document the drying and control the drying conditions. He/she will also be checking the exact moisture contents of everything affected and adjusting equipment for faster drying. Thisdocumentation should be on file for every drying project. We will also keep these records for you.
