Time is of the essence
As anybody in this field knows, when water enters where it should not be, time is a critical factor.
One of the key roles played by Adelaide Carpet Fresh is undertaking water mitigation to reduce or prevent the amount of water damage that happens after a flood or a permeating leak.
Swift action by our IICRC trained and certified team members prevents additional damage by taking appropriate actions will there is still a window of opportunity for making such gains.
The most common reasons for this work are plumbing failures and when storms cause water to rush into a home or office.
Soaked rugs, damaged walls, warped flooring and ruined furniture are only the beginning if mitigation is not engaged quickly.
When the Adelaide Carpet Fresh team is called upon to respond, it takes specific steps to reduce property destruction, prevent further water damage, and restore a property to its full value.
After The Water Comes The Mould
Something well known to the insurance industry is the insidious disruption caused by mould and other bacteria that love to develop and multiply in the wake of water damage.
For professional assessors wanting to make their client’s lives happier while curtailing costs, the window of opportunity to prevent mould growth and its costly damage, is measured in hours, not days or weeks.
To prevent mould from developing, an organisation needs a fast response from a professional water damage restoration contractor, which is why Adelaide Carpet Fresh is held in high regard.
Although really dangerous moulds are not an everyday occurrence, any mould has the potential to cause health problems and proper removal is critical.
From initial air quality testing and mould identification to safe removal methods, Adelaide Carpet Fresh makes sure your property is repaired quickly and professionally, within the limits and specifications of the insurance provider and its stakeholders.
The Water Mitigation Process
Water mitigation is the process we apply for reducing or preventing the amount of water damage that happens after a flood or a permeating leak.
By engaging Adelaide Carpet Fresh in water mitigation, you will prevent additional damage through our fast response and know how.
While most people associate water damage restoration as something that happens in the wake of storms and flooding, often plumbing failures are the cause.
Quiet, slow plumbing failures lead to seeping, which is a progressive, pervasive issue that can damage valuable objects, often permanently.
So whether your situation involves a slow seeping or a faster flow, acting as soon as possible will be key to ensuring our water mitigation efforts are successful.
We recommend you do the following as soon as you are aware of water seeping, leaking, or flooding:
- Turn off your water mains or contain whatever the water source might be, to the best of your ability
- Flick the electrical circuit breaker to off for all electricity in the affected zones of the building BEFORE your start unplugging and removing electrical devices from the wet carpet or submerged areas.
- Call Adelaide Carpet Fresh immediately
- Reduce the chance of staining by putting aluminum foil under the legs of any furniture that is in contact with wet carpet or water
- Find a way to lift and hold curtains and drapes out of any wet carpet or water (tucking them around coat hangers place over the curtain rod can sometimes be quite simple and effective
- Do the same with an skirts around the base of furniture

By taking these preventative measures and calling Adelaide Carpet Fresh directly as soon as possible, your water damage restoration will have the greatest chance for success.
