Water damage restoration service

When your house gets flooded due to a number of reasons such as leaking pipes, broken pump etc, and you have carpeting in that area, it's important to extract the water from the carpet. Now one may ask what's the problem with cleaning the carpet? Isn't it the same material as towels or any other fabric?The problem with carpeting is that it can become soggy, and begin to attract allergen materials.
Let's face it, nobody likes the smell of damp carpeting in their home and in many cases it can be quite hazardous to people’s health. Flood waters can contain bacteria or numerous other disease carrying contaminants. If the water is not extracted properly it can lead to long-term health issues for people living in the property for an extended period of time.  This can create a hazardous environment for many people. 

What are the kinds of water damage?

Each type of water damage has to be classified in order to understand the water damage effectively.
  • Dirty water: In the case of dirty water the carpet would need to be completely removed, because of the contaminants (can be caused by sewage) in the water and it being biologically hazardous to a person’s health. 
  • Grey water: This is chemically contaminated water that can come from chlorinated water being emptied out or washing machine overflowing. In many cases, if proper extracting chemicals are used the carpet can be safe for the removal.
  • Clean water: This is if a water pipe breaks and soaks the floor which is the least harmful in regards to removal. 

How to start the water extraction process?

Water extraction is one of the most important things to do in case of water damage. With the use of specialized vacuums and dehumidifiers in order to remove water from the area, you can ensure thorough removal of all the moisture parts from the carpeted areas. After this is done then the area will be sprayed down with decontaminants in order to prevent the spread of mold in the carpeted areas.
