It's not uncommon to have your home suffer from water damage due to floods, septic backups, or other plumbing failures. If you are unfortunate enough to have this type of damage, you need to call a professional in to begin the restoration process.
Sunbird Cleaning Services water restoration service employs extraction machines that remove excess standing water. We will use professional-grade dehumidifiers and drying equipment to dry the area thoroughly, thus preventing mold and further damage.
Naturally if your carpet is soaked, it can be stained by the gunk brought in along with the water. However, the real problem happens if water is allowed to sit and the carpet and pad aren't thoroughly dried out. First of all, water can be absorbed though walls and wick upward, causing the interior of your house to become wet and even the floors above the flooding can be affected. Water can even soak down through the flooring and sub-floors, causing water damage to floors beneath the floor. Once wet, it becomes a haven for mildew and mold, making your house a very unhealthy place to live in.
If you can stop the water flow, do so. If the flooding is related to a backed up sewer, do not use fans as it can spread disease. Instead, if it is safe to do so, shut off all electricity and remove electrical appliances from the area. Move any furnishings and drapes from the wet areas as well as anything that could be damaged by getting wet. Avoid walking on the wet carpet as much as practical.
