Often times, the water damage your home and carpets receive during a storm is not from flooding but from the storm itself. With high winds comes damage to your roof or windows from tree limbs or the winds themselves. When a hole opens up in your roof, it doesn’t take long for your carpets to become water soaked. This is when you need water damage restoration for your carpets.
The sooner you can begin drying your carpet out the better. The good news is carpet can be dried thoroughly. The bad news is it must be done within a day or two from the time of the damage or it might be too late.
Mold will quickly begin to grow in wet carpets. This mold is a health hazard. It has been known to cause asthma attacks as well as other respiratory issues even for those who do not have asthma.
While wet vacs and dehumidifiers can go a long way in drying out your home, they will not typically dry carpeting completely. The top layer of the carpet may dry, but the padding and sub floor will still be wet. This can lead to structural damage and mold.
To ensure that your carpets are completely dried and restored, you will need to call in a water damage restoration professional. These professionals have the right equipment to get all layers of your carpet dry and mold free.
