It seems that your water pipes somehow know the worst time to burst. It is typically when you are out of town or at least not at home. While there is no good time for water damage from broken water pipes, your carpets can be saved with the right water damage restoration.
When it comes to water damaged carpets, getting them dry as quickly as possible is the most important objective. If carpets, and the padding underneath them, stay wet for too long, your floors can suffer structural damage.
Before drying out your carpet, you will first want to remove any furniture or other objects that may be on the carpet. The drying process will need to include drying the carpeting itself as well as the padding and subfloor.
Often times, your homeowner’s insurance policy will cover the cost of water damage restoration, so it is a good idea to call your insurance agent to find out and start the claims process.
If there is a small amount of water damage, you may be able to use a wet vac to remove the water; however, if the damage is extensive or you find that not only the carpet but the padding and sub floor is wet, it is best to call in a water damage restoration professional.
A professional will know exactly what needs to be done to get your carpets back to where they were before the water damage. They will also have the necessary equipment to treat any mold that may be growing.
