We all know accidents can happen. Heavy rainfall can cause flooding. Roofs can leak. Water pipes can break. If you suspect that water has seeped into your carpets, you need to act fast. Following are the top reasons why you need address wet carpet quickly and what you should do.
Prevent hazardous mould
Homeowners and businesses who experience even a small amount of water seeping into their premises should be concerned about mould. A wet carpet, if not dried properly can quickly become a breeding ground and hazardous to health.
The faster you get your carpets dried after water damage, the better. MasterClean Carpet Care offers emergency carpet cleaning to residents and businesses in Melbourne after unpredictable disasters like flooding or bursting pipes. Our carpet cleaning experts have the right solutions and tools to extract water and dry your carpets in an emergency situation.
Limit damage to floor structure
Flooding and moisture can weaken or damage your flooring, affecting the foundation underneath your floors. If lingering for too long, your flooring could be ruined regardless of it being wood, carpet or tile. The water can even cause the glue on the tiles to be destroyed.
If it becomes apparent that water is seeping into your home from a plumbing leak, you have very little time to spare. Close immediately all the water sources coming in and out of your home and call a plumbing professional as soon as possible. (See our list below of who to call in an emergency).
Eliminate electrical danger
If it’s possible that water may have affected or come into contact with power points or other electrical systems or components, you should have them inspected by a professional before use. (See our list below of who to call in an emergency).
