Do You Always Need To Replace a Water Damaged Carpet?

People love to have carpets in their residence or office to add style and comfort to space. If there is flooding or a plumbing leak on your property, a wet carpet can be a disheartening sight. You should focus on ways to get the carpet, and its underlay dried quickly. We at Flood Services offer prompt and reliable Water Damaged Expert services to residential and commercial clients.

The Importance of Timely Water Damaged Carpet Cleaning

When a carpet gets wet due to flooding, the pad beneath becomes wet too. The carpet is the first to get into contact with water among the various items in the home. Regardless of the source of the water, it remains wet for a longer time than most other features in that space. Whether you can clean and save such a carpet depends upon the extent of water and the damage the feature has suffered. Sometimes, you can save the carpet but not the underlay.

Types of Water Damages to Carpets

Experts classify the Water Damaged Carpets into three types:

Type1- “Clean-water” soaked the carpet with a saturation of fewer than 48 hours. Clean water sources are leakage from an icemaker line, a rupture in the water supply line, or other sanitary water sources.

Type 2- “Gray-water” soaked carpets. Some greywater sources include shower or bath drain water, washing machine overflow, etc.

Type 3- “Black-water” soaked carpets. Blackwater is toxic contaminated water flowing from sewer back-up, clogged toilet outflow, or flooding in the outdoor area of the house.

All these situations require specific carpet cleaning processes. The carpet restoration experts will inspect the carpet before recommending restoration or replacement.
