With so many variables, not to mention when luck abandons you, the odds of experiencing water flooding in your home is highly likely. Burst pipes, malfunctioning appliances, natural causes, and so much more could cause water in large volumes to blanket your carpeting. Excessive water can damage carpet in a number of ways and if not properly restored, the carpets can harbor mold and mildew as well as expedite deterioration. It is crucial that you request professional water damage restoration services as quickly as possible when your carpets have been flooded water. With that in mind, we at Mr Madison Carpet Cleaning & Upholstery Specialists would like to take the opportunity to discuss the water damage restoration service, generally speaking.
Carpet Water Extraction Process
The first priority is to remove as much water as possible. A fairly standard process among experts to remove the water, especially in severe cases, is to remove the furniture and clutter from the space and identify the extent of the problem. Because organic materials will facilitate the growth of mold and other microbes, damage to the carpeting, padding, baseboards, casing, drywall, and insulation is often assessed. Before the inspection of these materials, the water extraction is a priority and if rapidly performed, many of these materials can be saved.
Water Damage Carpet & Structural Drying
With the use of professional grade pumps, the standing liquid is thoroughly removed. Setting up a strategic pattern of industrial strength air mover fans and dehumidifiers soon follows to pull out the moisture that has been absorbed. Wicking moisture off of the saturated materials, the fans circulate air around the wet items, and the dehumidifier draws moisture out of the air and contains it for efficient disposal. Professionals monitor the progress using moisture meters during the drying process. The technicians can keep tabs on the rate the carpet and other affected areas are drying by using the moisture meter that uses probes to detect the level of moisture in a specific location. Depending on the severity of the flood and how quickly you sought professional services will determine how long the drying process takes. On average it can take several days to complete.
Carpet Cleaning, Sanitizing & Deodorizing
If the professionals managed to save the carpets and after the structure has dried, the carpets need to be treated; even if they were removed to allow the subfloor to dry. When it comes to flooding and carpets, the carpets carry a high risk of absorbing bacteria and odors. A comprehensive carpet cleaning is performed using specially formulated detergent to destroy microbes for complete sanitation and to neutralize any attached odors. At the completion of the water restoration service, your carpets are completely cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized.
