Carpet Delamination caused by water damage

8/19/2019 (Permalink)

Carpet inspection for delamination at a water damage that occurred in a Dallas, Tx home.

Carpet delamination is a condition where the secondary backing of the carpet separates from the primary backing and can be caused by a variety of issues. One cause is from water damage causing the latex adhesive to fail which will result in the separation. Higher quality carpets will have a stronger latex adhesive where the lower quality carpet doesn't hold up quite as well. If you own a business with glue down carpet, you might notice bubbling due to the loss of adhesive. 

When inspecting carpet for delamination we always check from the side as the corner is a raw edge from the manufacturer and prone to fraying. As you can see from the photo the secondary backing has completely pulled away from the primary backing. In this case we would recommend the carpet being replaced in order to restore the home back to preloss condition.

Purple/Pink spots on the thermal camera represent hidden damage in the ceiling.

When a storm comes through and causes hail damage to your roof, you can almost bet there is hidden water damage. Just because you can't see the staining on your ceiling, doesn't mean it isn't there. 

Our structural drying team performs inspections after storms like this with their infrared cameras. These cameras detect heat given off by and object or person. An object warmer than the surrounding air appears red or yellow on our cameras while the objects cooler than the surrounding air will show as different shades of blue and purple/pink. 

As you can see from this photo, there are several areas of the bedroom that are picking up moisture. If you suspect hidden damage in your home or business, give our team a call for an inspection! 972-420-4771
