Water damaged or wet carpet should no longer cause disaster, if you call Adelaide Carpet Fresh as soon as the incident occurs.
Whether it is a washing machine hose that got loose, or a nearby river or pool burst its banks, or some other freak of nature has led to water entering your home or office, there is a certified team ready to respond.
Adelaide Carpet Fresh personnel are your reputable restorers, certified by the IICRC, the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification.
There are many things that can make water damaged carpet or wet carpet worse, so let’s get to the facts.
Water damaged carpet has a ticking countdown to permanent damage.
Do any research into wet carpet restoration and you’ll see that time is of the absolute essence.
The reason for quick action is because mould loves living in the moist environment of damp carpet and it is permanently ready to set up home and brew its dark, bacterial colonies.
Our first line of defense makes use of our industrial dryers and dehumidifiers, which get to work quickly with water mitigation to extract unwanted moisture from your carpet and flooring.
How long do you have?
Our experience tells us you have 48 to 72 hours to have Adelaide Carpet Fresh start its drying process before the familiar odor of musty, wet carpet fills your house or office.
It’s not just the smell! Mould in water damaged carpet is a health hazard.
The musty, persistent stench of mould in carpet is one thing, but putting your health at risk is another.
Mould can cause:
- nasal congestion
- respiratory infections
- inflammation in people with weakened immune systems
Of course, if you or your family members suffer from asthma, allergies, or lung diseases, you will know that being around mould will make your symptoms worse, you will be more susceptible than most to the ravages of this environment.
