Have you recently discovered mold or water damage in your home? You probably have a number of things you have to worry about when it comes to fixing your home. One of the biggest areas of concern may be water damaged carpeting. Fixing water damaged carpeting, and other areas of your home, should be left to the restoration experts at Ram Restoration. If you’re worried about the state of your carpeting and other areas of your home or office after a flood or mold growth, let Ram Restoration handle everything.
Safety is absolutely crucial when it comes to fixing water damaged carpeting. If you don’t feel safe walking across the wet carpeting to remove items, you shouldn’t do it. Plus, it’s not advisable to continually walk across the wet carpeting because the loose adhesive could irritate your skin.
If you do want to remove the items that are on your carpeting, you’ll first want to make sure the water is shut off. That way, more water isn’t affecting the carpet. You’ll also want to make sure you don’t go near electrical outlets to reduce the risk of getting shocked.
Call the Professionals
If you’re unsure of whether you should try to fix the carpet on your own, it’s best to call the professionals. At Ram Restoration, we have a set process we follow for all water damage claims we receive. First, we aim to arrive within 30 to 60 minutes of receiving the initial call. We’ll work on extracting the water in your space, drying it out, restoring or replacing the affected items, and treating the area for mold. Even if you don’t see visible mold, we’ll still treat for mold in case it has started to grow without you realizing it.
Extract and Dry as Much as You Can
If you do feel comfortable, you can work on extracting the water from your space. Water extraction must be the first step. After all, it doesn’t make sense to dry out the area if there’s still water present. However, if you don’t feel comfortable with the water extraction and drying, we’ll take care of it when we arrive at your home. Again, your first priority should be staying safe. So if you don’t know the best way to extract the water, we can take care of it when we arrive at your space.
Make a Quick Decision on Replacing Carpeting
Many times, we’ll have to replace your carpeting instead of restoring it. If we come to you and say that the carpet can either be restored or replaced, you’ll need to make a quick decision. When it all comes down to it, we’ll most likely replace the carpet because carpeting is easily affected by water.
Fixing water damaged carpeting shouldn’t be something you have to take on. Instead, let the water damage restoration experts at Ram Restoration handle it. Since 2002, we’ve helped Dayton residents and business owners restore and remediate their space from water damage and mold.
