Preventing Mould After Carpet Water Damage

How do you prevent mould after carpet water damage?

By extracting the water from carpets, wooden floors and underlay we immediately remove most of the water. However it is the water underneath that can cause mould and mildew. We therefore set up de-humifiers and dryers for furniture moisture removal. We lift the carpet and install dryers underneath, leaving for at least 48 hours. We move furniture and install dehumidifiers and also disinfect the carpets after mould has been present.

Removing Mold From Carpet & Flooring

"Carpets and rugs should be regularly aired and cleaned to prevent mould. If carpet flooding occurs it is important to clean and dry the carpet immediately or preferably within 24-48 hours to prevent mould growing. Water damaged carpets and building materials can harbour moulds and bacteria. Without professional carpet restoration after a flood or leak, it may be necessary to remove the carpet as the mould may be impossible to remove completely."

Water damage to your carpets can be hazardous to you and your family’s health. When treated quickly, carpet damage is minimised and carpet restoration costs reduced. Cleaning your carpets with a micro-ban solution helps prevent mould and mildew. Our professional carpet water damage restoration methods utilise advanced air movers which propel large quantities of air along floors, carpets and walls in order to reduce drying time.

Whether you have a flood, or unexpected leak damaging your carpet, we fully understand the urgency of removing the water from the carpet and underlay as soon as possible. Experts agree, carpet water damage occurs within the first 48 hours. Reduce your costs and the likelihood of mould and mildew in your carpet by acting quickly.
