Water damaged carpet replaced with hard floor
Carpet can experience damage from sun light, foot traffic, stains and water flooding. The result of foot traffic and water flooding can be a problem called delamination. This when the adhesive layer between the face yarn fibers and the support backing begin to deteriorate and separate. In the "before photo" you can see the lines that run the length of the carpet. These are where rows of face yarn fiber have lifted off of the backing. In time these rows become more pronounced and will be a tripping hazard. This carpet was over wetted when it was cleaned which also accelerated the problem. The home owner replaced the old carpet with a new engineered wood flooring.
