Carpet Water Damage Restoration:Replace or Dry It Out—Which is Better?
Is your home or office flooded? One of the first things to think about is carpet water damage restoration. A wet or damp carpet can be a health hazard in addition to damaging the underlying floorboards. Whether or not you can retain the carpet or will have to replace it depends on a number of factors. A professional restoration company can advise you on the right course of action.
Here are some important steps to take during carpet water damage restoration:
- Identify the source of the leak or flood: If the flood has been caused by a sewage backup or there is a chance that the flood water has come into contact with sewage, it must be replaced.
- Try and stop the water flow: This might help salvage some of the carpet.
- Begin the drying process: This may involve removing the padding, extracting the water, and then using industry grade fans and dehumidifiers. Typically, if the carpet doesn’t dry in 48 hours you should replace it.
- Check the padding and floor boards: When replacing the carpet, whether in entirety or certain sections, examine the underlying padding as well as the floor boards. Wet padding must always be replaced. Also ensure that the floor boards are dry before you put in the new carpet.
