Once you’ve taken the initial steps to address the water source and prepare the carpet for removal, it’s essential to contact a professional carpet cleaning and restoration company. Here’s what you can expect them to do:

The professionals will conduct a thorough assessment of the extent of the water damage to your carpet and the surrounding area. They will determine the best course of action based on the type of carpet, severity of the damage, and any potential risks such as mold growth.

Using specialized equipment, such as powerful water extractors and wet vacuums, the technicians will extract as much water as possible from the carpet and underlying padding. This step is crucial to prevent further damage and promote faster drying.

The professionals will deploy industrial-grade air movers and dehumidifiers to facilitate the drying process. These high-powered machines create airflow and reduce humidity, allowing moisture to evaporate more quickly from the carpet and surrounding areas. The duration of the drying process can vary depending on the extent of the water damage.

Once the carpet is thoroughly dry, the professionals will clean and sanitize it to remove any residual contaminants and prevent the growth of mold or bacteria. They will use professional-grade cleaning solutions and equipment to restore the carpet’s cleanliness and freshness.

In some cases, the carpet padding may need to be replaced if it has sustained significant damage or has been affected by mold or mildew. The professionals will assess the condition of the padding and provide recommendations based on their findings.

If the carpet is salvageable, the professionals will re-stretch and re-install it, ensuring a proper fit and appearance. They may also address any necessary repairs, such as reattaching seams or fixing damaged areas.

Odor elimination: If there are lingering odors after the restoration process, the professionals will use specialized techniques and deodorizing products to eliminate them. This ensures that your carpet not only looks clean but also smells fresh.

Throughout the entire restoration process, the professionals will prioritize your safety and the preservation of your carpet. They have the expertise, equipment, and knowledge to handle water damage effectively, minimizing the risk of long-term issues such as mold growth and structural damage.

Remember, time is of the essence when dealing with a flooded carpet. Promptly contacting a professional carpet cleaning and restoration company will increase the likelihood of successful restoration and minimize the potential for further damage to your home and belongings.
