Welcome to Adelaide’s water damage restoration specialists
Shower areas, vanities, water filter taps, and other plumbed areas within homes and offices are prone to seeping or more aggressive leaking over time. From burst pipes to storm damage, call Adelaide Carpet Fresh to investigate and repair.
Few smells are more debilitating than musty or mouldy carpets. Apart from a potent cocktail of aroma, you face the risk of exposure to black mould poisoning or allergens, which can aggravate asthma and other respiratory conditions.
Our experienced team has the equipment and the know how to inspect your walls and floors as part of our water restoration process. Moisture trapped in these areas can lead to hazardous mould growth if not found and dealt with promptly.
