After a flood to your home or business that has damaged the carpet, it’s important to deal with both the water, the damage to the carpet and the potential for mold.
A few tips you should consider when dealing with water damage include:
- Find the source of the water and stop the flow
- Determine what damage the water has done. It may just look like your carpet is wet, but what about walls and floors under the carpet?
- Completely dry the area where the water was. This needs to be done right away and most likely should include professional drying equipment.
- You may also need to disinfect the area and possibly deodorize. If the water was contaminated that causes a whole new set of problems that need to be addressed.
For an area over 10 square feet, it is recommended that a professional flood damage company take a look at the damage and determine the best course of action for repair.
