It’s just as important to keep your floor dry as it is to keep your carpets clean. Carpets that hold onto moisture are prone to harbouring moulds, mildews, and toxins – as well as foul odours that make your house feel less than pleasant.
There are thousands of homeowners across Melbourne, including Moorrabbin, who get flooded everyday. If you’ve just returned from somewhere and found yourself dealing with a flooding issue, then it is best to act fast and get it remedied.
If you’re dealing with flooding or a localised spill on your flooring, then you’ll first want to locate where the water came from, before using these tips to dry the wet carpets out. You’ll also want to keep an eye out for signs of mould as soon as possible.
You should always look for professional assistance if there is any sign of flood or fire damage in your home. However, even though it may be wise to call an expert, it is not necessary for you to take steps yourself to clean up the mess.
Wet Carpet Cleaners is here to assess the damage, remove any threats, and ensure the flooring is restored to its original condition.
When you realise that your carpets have been flooded, you may want to rush into getting it fixed but know there is that waiting time.
After removing any excess water from the carpet, let the carpet sit overnight so that most of the remaining liquid has left. Even though the carpet may look dry, there might still be some residual dampness that will cause mould growth and odour problems later on.
Take note – there are many factors that affect how quickly your carpets dry. Take a look at these factors:
If you’ve waited long enough for the moisture in your carpet to evaporate, and it still feels wet after 24 hours, then you might want to consider calling in professional cleaning services. Otherwise, there is a chance that your carpet could become damaged from microbe growth and rippling caused by water.
You should hire a professional cleaning service if you have mould in your house due to flood damage. Mould can cause serious health problems such as respiratory issues and allergic reactions. Your local carpet cleaners and mould removal experts know how to identify and remove mould quickly and safely so you can start living life again. Call Wet Carpet Cleaners today!
