Saving Your Wet Carpet
When our restoration expert arrives at your home, they’ll start by examining the condition of the affected rooms. If we can save your carpet, we’ll have to act swiftly to prevent mold growth and mildew. Contamination becomes more severe the longer standing water remains, so we’ll need to remove the moisture and dry out the area as quickly as possible.
Once the standing water has been evacuated, our team will carefully remove any residual moisture remaining in the carpet fibers. This step is extremely important to the restoration process. Rushing through can leave opportunity for bacteria, mold, and mildew to grow in the flooring, which can lead to some unpleasant, odorous side-effects later on.
Can My Carpet Be Restored?
Some situations may leave carpet totally ruined. The two deciding factors in carpet restoration are time and water purity. In restoration, there are three stages of water contamination: clean, grey, and black.
- Clean or potable water comes from busted pipes, damaged water tanks, etc. and is essentially contaminant free.
- Gray water is produced by cleaning activities in your dishwasher or clothes washer. It is
- Black water is any water circulating through your sewer system, or water that comes into contact with biological, metal, or chemical contaminants.
If your carpet is impacted by a clean water leak, there may be a greater window for restoration. That window is halved in situations involving grey water, as contamination levels begin to escalate. Black water contamination is the dividing line in carpet restoration. At this point, carpeting may not be salvageable.
