Can you dry vinyl?

Unfortunately, most time we cannot dry vinyl. The reason we usually cannot dry vinyl is because it is a vapor barrier. As you see in these photos the vinyl had been glued down, making it nearly impossible to dry under the vinyl.

However, not all is lost at this customers home. We use a special technique when working with carpeted homes. We extract water from the carpet, then we lift the carpet and extract under the carpet and pad. Doing this allows us to save the majority of the flooring throughout the home. 

Luckily this customer has used our services in the past and was aware of the demolition that would occur. While they hoped we would not have to return to their home, this customer was very satisfied with our quick arrival time, and timeliness of the overall work performed at their home.
