Wet Carpet – The Importance of Drying It Quickly

Discovering your carpet soaked after a burst pipe or flood can be a major inconvenience. However, with the help of professionals, it is possible to salvage and treat your carpet, saving you from the expense of replacement and restoring your home to normality.

Call professionals for assistance
In the event of flood water damage, it is crucial to seek help from a reputable company specialising in dealing with such situations. Instead of leaving the carpet to dry on its own, it is advisable to have it dried quickly and professionally. By taking this proactive approach, you can ensure that you have done everything possible to save your carpet before considering disposal.

Prevent health issues
Failing to dry your carpet promptly can lead to the growth of mould and mildew, making replacement inevitable. Additionally, bacteria may be left behind, posing long-term health risks to your family. By calling in professionals when your carpet is saturated with water, they can assess the damage and take necessary steps to mitigate the situation.

Avoid the misconception of a dry carpet
Many homeowners attempt to dry their carpets themselves and may believe they have been successful because the carpet appears and feels dry. However, in reality, moisture often remains trapped at the bottom of the fibres and within the padding. This hidden moisture can cause further damage if left untreated.

Act swiftly
Time is of the essence when it comes to water damage. Fortunately, our company provides a 24-hour service, seven days a week, ensuring that we are always available to assist you. Our powerful machinery enables us to extract all water from your carpets and upholstery and thoroughly dry the affected areas using dehumidifiers, air filtration devices, and air movers.

Once the carpet is completely dried, we employ a hot water extraction method to clean it. This process sanitises and deodorises the carpet, eliminating germs and bacteria, and making it safe for continued use in your home.

While flooding is a distressing experience, it is comforting to know that help is just a phone call away.
