Don’t play around with any type of water damage in your home. This is an issue that needs to be addressed immediately no later than 24-48 hours, to prevent the growth of bacteria and mold. Whether you have had a flood due to all this rain, or your air conditioner overflows, or your toilet or water heater had a leak; it needs to addressed immediately. The longer you wait, the worse the damage becomes and the more money it will cost to fix it. Bacteria and mold spores can spread to other areas in your home and can cause your family health problems. If you find that your carpet is wet due to any type of water leak or flood, the carpet should be pulled back, and the padding removed and thrown away (padding is like a sponge). The carpet can be saved if thoroughly dried within 24-48 hours and then professionally cleaned. Get as much air circulation going as possible, turn on your ventilation fans and any fans you have in your home. Use your dehumidifier if you have one. Water soaked carpet and padding that has been sitting for longer than 48 hours can begin to grow mold spores, which can impact your lungs and send your family to the doctor. It’s not something to play around with. So if you have had a water leak in your home, contact a water remediation company like us to immediately have this addressed.
