A flood in your home can be devastating for many reasons. It often means the loss of many irreplaceable possessions, as well as damage to the walls, flooring, and structure of the house in many cases. There are various ways to reduce the risk of flood damage to your home, but in some instances, there is little that can be done to avoid the problem. The important thing at that point is to quickly address any problems and do everything possible to minimize and contain the damage. When flooding occurs, one area that is almost always affected is the carpet. Even in minor cases of flooding that result in barely more than a puddle's worth of water inside your home, you may find yourself facing hundreds or thousands of dollars in cost to replace a carpet. That is because flood water is often dirty, and can carry a large number of bacteria. Furthermore, the longer a carpet stays wet or damp, the more likely it is that mold and mildew will begin to grow. This can lead to permanent damage to the carpet, as well as unpleasant odors, and poor sanitary conditions. However, if you contact Carpet Cleaning Services of Aurora immediately following a flood, our carpet cleaners will be able to help you protect and restore your carpets, and avoid the expenses of replacing your carpets.
At Carpet Cleaning Services of Aurora, we can help customers mitigate any flood damage to their carpets by assisting with the drying and sanitation of affected areas. It is important not to assume that you can let your carpet dry out on its own. Carpeting absorbs water easily and can stay damp for a very long time. The faster you get your carpet dry, the less chance there will be for permanent damage to occur. It will need to be manually dried to ensure you get the water out as fast as possible, and there is no moisture left. Once that is done, we get to work removing any stains caused by the water, as well as deep clean the carpet to ensure that any bacteria or potentially harmful contaminants left by the flood are eliminated. Our carpet cleaners will help save you from the cost of a carpet replacement, while making sure that your carpet is clean, hygienic, and back to pre-flood condition.
Mold and Mildew
Mold and mildew thrive where there is ample moisture. This means that the aftermath of a flood provides the perfect growing conditions for these problems to arise. If you are having issues with mold and mildew stains on your carpet, contact Carpet Cleaning Services of Aurora for assistance with their safe and effective removal. While the worst cases of mold and mildew may be irreparable, we can help you curtail instances early on to prevent the worst case scenario. Our experts have had extensive experience helping customers deal with all kinds of flood damage, and we understand how to effectively and efficiently tackle issues for our customers at an affordable price.
