Carpet Damage:

Structural damage:

If you do not consider flooding as an emergency condition and wait for long hours, then there is a possibility of structural damage. Some properties are more vulnerable depending upon the type of construction. However, there is a way that you can check for few signs that could determine if your property has sustained structural damage.

The signs are:
Warped and buckled floorboards If you find buckled floorboards, it indicates a serious situation that needs to be addressed by an expert immediately.

Swollen and soft drywall When the moisture levels increase, it damages the drywall. If you see such a condition, call the cleaning professional urgently.

    Can carpet be saved after a flood?

    Water damaged carpet is a common problem that plagues many homeowners. In some cases, the carpet can be saved, and it has to be thrown away in others. The most important thing to know is that carpet water damage can become a more significant issue down the road if not treated correctly.

    Determining Clean Water vs. Dirty Water Whether you can save a flood-damaged rug or carpet depends on the source of the flooding, how long it was wet, and whether it can be effectively cleaned and disinfected.

    • Clean water: If your carpets have been damaged by rainwater coming from a broken window or skylight or a burst pipe, this is considered clean water. You may be able to salvage the carpet if you get to it quickly enough.
    • Dirty water: If your carpets were damaged by an overflowing toilet or sewage backup, throw out the carpet immediately unless you can effectively clean and disinfect it through professional extraction and cleaning with anti-bacterial solutions.

    Emergency Carpet Cleaning

    You should always invest in professional carpet cleaning services as soon as possible after flooding occurs in your home or business. When standing water sits for too long, mould growth will appear within 48 hours and possibly even sooner.

    What do I do if my carpet is flooded?

    If your carpet has experienced excessive flooding from a rainstorm, sewage backup, or other serious water damage event, there are a few steps you should take

    • Act Quickly: The first thing you need to do is act quickly to remove any flood water still in the carpeting. You'll need to have a wet vac or similar suction device that can extract water. Once you've removed as much water as possible, use fans to circulate air through the room and dry off as much moisture as possible.
    • Inspect for Mould Growth: Once most of the moisture has been removed from your carpeting, inspect for signs of mould growth — especially under baseboards and other areas where standing water may have gathered. Your carpets may not be saved if you find mould growth or other major contamination issues (such as sewage).
    • Get a professional carpet cleaning service: While the above steps can help you drain the excess water and manage minor water damage cleanup on your own, the best thing to do to ensure the water damage is fully mitigated is to seek professional help.

    Does the flooded carpet need to be replaced?

    Carpet that has been damaged by clean water from a pipe or drain leak can typically be cleaned and saved if it is acted on quickly enough. You might have a good chance at restoration. But if your carpet was flooded by contaminated water like stormwater or sewage backup, you should probably just throw it away.

    Whether you can save flood-damaged carpet depends on the source of the flooding, how long it was wet, and whether it can be effectively cleaned and disinfected.

    If you call a professional to clean your carpet within 24 hours of the spill or flooding, they might be able to get the job done. If you wait much longer, the fibres may become permanently discoloured or stained.
