Absolute Carpet Care can restore flood water damaged carpets in your homes, offices, units and bedrooms. If you leave the excess water and it sits there for more than 24 hours, there is a possibility that mould growth can occur and end up costing more money to repair. We aim to return your wet carpet to its original condition through carpet water extraction methods and get your carpets clean with as little inconvenience to you as possible, in as little time as possible.
Do You Have A Business?
It would be best if you had minimal interruption when the process of flood damage is in progress. Yes, we run a business too, and we know how stressful it can be when there is a disaster like water damage. We have best equipment like dehumidifiers, Air Movers etc. for water damage carpet drying and cleaning. The drying process that we use for water damage restoration are:
Top down drying method -In this method, we do not have to remove or detach the carpet from the floor to dry it. This method works in most cases, usually when there is no carpet underlay, i.e., the carpet is directly glued to another carpet. Also, when the water damage has not been sitting there for too long.
Installation of Dehumidifiers -To dry the water from the carpets, we use drying equipment such as air movers, but if we use dehumidifiers, it can greatly speed up the water damage drying time. We use the best machines for water damage carpet cleaning for effective results.
To minimise the water damage and job cost, follow these simple steps:
- Don’t use ordinary drying equipment such as a vacuum to suck up the water
- Do not lift the flooded carpet from the edges without the proper tooling. It can rip threads in the carpet and make it impossible to do damage restoration.
- Do not use electrical appliances.
- Don’t walk through a storm or flood-damaged carpet with standing water unless you can be absolutely sure the main power is turned off.
- Don’t use flood-damaged electrical appliances.
- Don’t keep flood damaged carpets inside, it can be a cause of mould & odour.
- Think & practice safety first. Safety measures should be followed stringently.
- Turn off the main power switch, then turn off & disconnect all plugs from wall sockets for all electrical appliances in affected areas to eliminate all chances of any electrical shock.
- Find the source of the water & stop it, if possible. It would prevent further damage to the property.
- Remove as much water as possible by mopping or putting as many towels as you can to soak up the water damage on the wet carpet. Also, on other floorings using various water damage prevention techniques.
- Lift the curtains off the floor and hang them on a coat hanger on the curtain rod so that they do not get wet.
- Turn the air conditioning on if possible. It will reduce the humidity in the air and help dry the water damage, do not turn it on if it is flooded.
- Use fans to help circulate the air, do not use them when flooded.
- Put aluminium foil or plastic shopping bags under furniture to prevent non-reversible staining to the wet carpet.
- Wipe the furniture dry with a towel.
- Move rugs off the wet carpet to prevent staining.
