Flood Damage – How to Save Your Carpets

Posted on October 10, 2015

Floods can cause a lot of damage to your home and its contents. Make sure you get the best chance of recovery after a flood with professional carpet cleaners.

They say people will have at least one experience in their lifetime of internal flood damage. It causes a lot of stress to those it affects and people in the Carpet Cleaning Industry are usually the first ones to be called to solve or fix the damage caused by floods.

A lot of carpet cleaners have the ability to suck the water out of the carpet and they may also have drying equipment to get the carpet dry.

However, quite often, the structural drying is ignored. Water soaks into gyprock, like it soaks into chalk, and it even soaks into concrete. Drying of the walls and floors is just as important, if not more important than drying the carpets.

Always ask the qualifications of whoever is planning on doing your restoration work. It is not a job for anyone who is inexperienced and there is a lot more involved than just drying the carpet.
