“Why call a professional,” you may ask, “since I can’t feel any moisture when I touch the carpet?”
Even though you may not feel water gushing in-between your toes, there is a good chance your carpet padding is holding most of the moisture, since, as you most likely know, padding acts as a sponge when wet. It is good to remove as much water as you can, perhaps using a shop vacuum or towels, but just remember It’s not dry below the surface of your carpet.
“Wouldn’t it dry eventually?”
Eventually, yes. However if the damage is not treated properly, it can lead to an unhealthy living environment due to mold and mildew and hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, in repair costs in mold remediation that might not be covered by your insurance company.
The following is a list of things you should do if you ever have a water intrusion:
- Turn off electrical breakers to your home. Remember not to unplug anything connected to an outlet as this may result in electric shock.
- Walk cautiously from the wet floor to hard surfaces such as tile or hardwood at all times
- Move all the furniture you are able to from of the wet floor to protect it and keep it from leaving wood or rust stains on the floor.
- Most importantly, call Preferred Carpet Care to take care of the rest. Remember, we are here for you. Call us with any questions you might have.
