If you’re wondering how long wet carpets need to be left before they become moldy, then the answer is that there isn’t a specific time frame. You can’t just leave them and wait for nature to take its course, because if you do, then you risk having mould and mildew growing inside your house, and we don’t want that to happen.
If you’re dealing with such a situation and need to learn how to dry a wet or flooded carpet, then Wet Carpet Cleaners are here for you.
First, remove any pieces of heavy furniture that are sitting on the wet area so they don’t get damaged when the water recedes. Furniture may cause damage to floors, carpets, or walls if they’re left there.
Water that has soaked into the carpet is harder to remove than water that is just sitting on top of it. So you should act fast to get rid of any excess water from the carpet before it gets absorbed too deeply.
You can use a clean white cloth or paper towels to blot the water. Use your hands to press down firmly on top of the damp cloth. Squeeze out excess moisture, then lift off the cloth. Replace it with a dry rag or paper towels. Repeat if needed.
Finally, you could alternatively use a wet (or even a dry) vacuuming system to remove the extra moisture.
Regardless of the source of the issue, it’s highly recommended that you don’t attempt to fix it yourself. The source of the problem might contain disease causing bacteria, germs, and parasites. It’s best cleaned up by experts who know exactly what they’re doing. You and your family’s health and well-being are more important than a ruined carpet.
If you have an excessive amount of dampness in your carpeting, flooring, or wooden surfaces, then there’s a chance that they could become ruined if left untreated for too long. With Wet Carpet Cleaners, you may be able to save them.
We use extraction machines to remove excess moisture from carpet underlays and timber floors by pulling it out through the surface of the floorboards or subfloor.
