A wet mattress on the side of the road Water damage can cause you to lose many of your possessions, including your mattress. Call SERVPRO to remediate the damage and reduce your losses.

SERVPRO Technicians Have the Equipment For Extraction and Drying Contents in Your Queens Home

A wet mattress is a frustrating problem for any homeowner to deal with. If it does not get dried quickly, it will be a loss. If the source of the water is from an external flooding, whether groundwater or stormwater that migrated through building materials, it is contaminated. This requires disposal. The following factors are considerations in the restoration potential of a wet mattress: 

  • The age of the mattress
  • The construction material
  • Whether it has springs
  • How quickly the extraction and drying efforts began

What Kind of Mattresses Have the Best Outcome After Water Removal?

When SERVPRO techs handle water removal from wet mattresses in Queens homes, they inspect it to determine the construction materials because if it has a cotton, foam, or rubber core, it can be more challenging to dry.  If it got made before 2007, it does not meet the requirements for the current fire retardant standards and requires disposal.

Methods of Drying Mattresses

SERVPRO techs remove as much moisture as possible to lessen the drying time using their portable pumps with upholstery attachments. This includes doing several "dry" passes where no apparent water gets removed before moving on to the drying phase. When drying a mattress, the techs may use tenting with plastic over the mattress with both air movers and de-humidification equipment working in tandem too quickly. When necessary, the techs can remove the mattress for in-plant drying.

Not every mattress has the potential for restoration, and in some cases, it is better to replace the existing mattress with a new one. In situations where the mattress requires disposal, the technicians can ensure it gets disposed of per local regulations.

SERVPRO of Long Island City at (718) 440-6994 arrives quickly to local properties for water removal tasks of any size. The certified technicians get rid of the water and dry your property as fast as possible.
