If you have found yourself in a situation where you have had your home flooded or even just a room, chances are there has been some sort of damage caused to either the carpet or surrounds. Once the source of the water damage has been discovered and has been resolved, the clean-up process will get under way. After removing the furniture and taking steps to clear the room, if you have a room with carpet, then the priority should always be carpet drying. Once it is dry, then restoration of the carpet and/or the surrounds may need to be the next action to take. Water damage can wreak havoc on the foundations, flooring and carpet. It can cause issues like mould, deterioration and irreplaceable damage, especially if left unchecked. At the very least, you may end up with bad smelling carpet and at the very worst you can put the safety of your family at risk if you do not get any of the damage assessed. While in some cases, like a burst pipe, it may be easy to tell if you have more extensive water damage to your property and carpet, but sometimes it can go unchecked. That is why when you hire professionals like our team at Mr Flood for carpet drying services, we will also be able to offer an assessment to see whether you need restorative services of any kind as well. One of the misconceptions is that you may need to throw your carpet away if it experiences water damage, but this is not always the case. Mr Flood’s restorative carpet services can help restore the carpet so it will not need replacing thanks to our professional carpet drying processes. If the damage extends beyond just carpet, our expert team will be able to assess what other sort of water damage has happened and take you through the steps for restoring anything else damaged. Do not delay though, not only will it ensure that no more unnecessary damage is caused, but we can also get the process done as soon as possible so you can work with your insurance companies to get everything back to normal in your home or business as soon as possible.
One of the biggest issues from the damage caused by flooding is mould. When carpet is not properly dried, restored or replaced after an instance of water damage, it leaves the possibility for mould to grow. Mould at the very least can cause an uncomfortable smell to permeate through the room, home or building and at the very worst can put the health and safety of the people living or working in that area at risk. Mould can cause nasal congestion and allergic reactions to people who are sensitive and other serious health effects. For those with asthma, weakened immune systems or people who may just be sensitive, mould spores in the air can cause a range of respiratory issues. These issues can cause long term damage and that is why if there is a potential for mould growth in the home or the workplace, then doing what you can to combat it is recommended. If you experience any flooding or water damage to carpet or other structures, if left untreated, it can be a breeding ground for mould. That is why hiring the services of professionals for carpet drying is absolutely imperative. Professional carpet drying services, like the services carried out by Mr Flood in Sydney, will ensure that there is no chance for mould to grow.

Professional Drying Process
If you find yourself coming home or into work in Sydney and being faced with a flooded carpet, then calling the professionals in carpet drying is an absolute must. Mr Flood has a professional carpet drying process which will ensure that you will be able to get your carpet dry as quickly and as efficiently as possible. The sooner, the better. That is why Mr Flood offers a three hundred and sixty-five days a year, twenty-four, seven service so you can have somebody to your home or workplace when you need it. We will be able to assess any damage and ensure the right steps are taken as quickly as we can. The process is quite simple and made easier with our professional equipment. The first step is to remove the water immediately. You can start the process yourself while you wait if you have a wet/dry vacuum. Do not bother using towels or any other equipment, as they can do more damage than good. If you do not have a wet/dry vacuum, then you can always wait for our team to get there. Once the surface level water is removed and the area is as dry as possible, we will steam clean the carpet and flooring, as well as deodorising it. There are not many worse smells than wet carpet so if it is possible to restore it, then we will make sure that it does not smell. Once we decide on what to do with the carpet and any excess water is removed from the environment, we install air movers. This will help bring out any residual moisture from the surrounds, including the carpets and the rest of the structure. This will dry out the room and make sure that nothing is left over, so no mould or any other problems can arise. Dehumidifiers are a great way to keep the air dry and preserve your carpets and Mr Flood will guide you on the steps to take to get your carpet and home as dry as possible.
