SERVPRO has a Segway?
When a water damage affects carpeting, it is important to stabilize the job site and extract as much water as possible.
One of the ways that this is accomplished is to use a weighted extraction unit.
At first glance they can look similar to the popular SEGWAY vehicles that are used for recreation. But on closer inspection they don’t offer the same range.
The weighted extractor, uses the rider’s body weight to assist in the extraction process.
The water travels down the tubes out to the truck mount engine.
Weighted extraction is used when the vendor is attempting to dry the carpet in place. They may also detach the carpet from the tack strip and "float" the carpet by using air movers.
These are both good methods of restoring items rather than replacing.
