Wet Carpet Repair
Wet carpet is a big concern when it comes to flooding or other types of water damage. Carpet can soak up gallons of water, making everything within and underneath it susceptible to mold and mildew. The first action to take is always dry the entire area as much as possible through forced air drying systems and dehumidification. However, in serious cases, carpet may need to be removed to dry and be treated for mold.
The padding underneath carpet is especially prone to soaking up moisture and growing mold and mildew. In a serious flood, the safest thing to do is to remove and replace this padding to avoid problems later on. A carpet can often be sun dried or air dried, and in severe cases, treated with chemicals for suspected mold growth.
