    Moldy Carpets after Floods Can Put Your Family at Risk in Lakewood, CO; Carpet Cleaning by ServiceMaster DSI


    home water damageExperiencing a flood in a home can be devastating. The word “flooding” is often associated with large amounts of water gushing into a home, but in truth, it only takes a few inches of water to cause severe damage in a home. Removing the contents of the home and extracting the water is just the beginning of the water damage restoration that needs to be done for you to live safely in the home again. Carpets are often damaged during floods, and to add insult to injury, if water is left standing, you can also be dealing with mold growth in the carpeting.

    Flooding can be caused by a variety of events such as a leak, broken pipe, or a weather event that causes water to enter your home. Just a little bit of moisture in your carpeting can create the right environment for mold to grow. Mold is known to cause many types of health problems. It can make you uncomfortable and sneezy, and at the very worst, extremely ill. To make sure your carpeting doesn’t become a breeding grown for mold, professional carpet cleaning should be done as soon as possible after flooding occurs in your Lakewood, CO, home or business.

    In the aftermath of water damage, ServiceMaster DSI will assess the area, test carpet fibers, and determine if the cleaning requires removal of the carpeting to get to the padding beneath, an area where mold likes to breed. We then use state-of-the-art equipment and extraction systems to pull water out of the padding and the carpet fibers. The carpet will then be thoroughly cleaned and rinsed, leaving no soapy residue.
    Carpet cleaning after a flood can save you from costly carpet replacement, but fast action is needed. Never let water sit after a flood, even for a few hours. The faster you act, the faster we can react and help. We’re available 24/7/365 to help you with your carpet cleaning after flooding in Lakewood, CO. Contact us at (720) 452-2842.

    Recently, Louisiana broke records with the flooding that happened mid-August. Though you aren’t facing more than 25 inches of rain, even an inch of water in your basement can cause issues. That’s why ServiceMaster DSI provides water extraction around the country, including Aurora, CO. Whether it’s rainfall or a burst pipe, we’re here to simplify your recovery.

    Perhaps you have also heard of flood kits being distributed when floodwaters rise. Many non-profits will travel to the affected area to offer food, counseling, and flood kits. What’s less heard of is exactly what the flood kits contain.

    A flood kit typically includes a variety of cleaning supplies to sanitize and restore the home. While kits may vary, they generally include bleach, sponges, squeegees, extension handles, rubber gloves, and face masks, all held in a bucket to mix cleaning materials in.

    They provide the kits; you provide the muscle.

    While flood kits can be helpful, it’s a lot of work to restore your home to a healthy condition. Even with a lot of scrubbing, sanitizing, and airing out, you’ll likely want to repaint or even put in new flooring or sheet rock.

It starts with a simple phone call to talk through your situation and schedule an inspection. We’ll assess the damage before beginning water extraction to remove any standing water.

    Routine and Emergency Water Extraction Aurora, CO

    Water is a vital part of life, but in the wrong place and time, it can wreak havoc on a building. Even the smallest amount of moisture where it doesn’t belong can have an effect on your home or building. Whether it’s a routine extraction or an emergency large scale project, you can rely on ServiceMaster DSI for comprehensive water extraction in Aurora, CO.

    Our IICRC-certified technicians are equipped with state of the art cleaning and extraction technology and expert training to handle projects for both routine extractions and emergency situations.

    Routine Extraction

    During routine and specialty carpet and upholstery cleanings, our cleaning teams often use fluids and water that would damage these materials if allowed to remain. To protect your carpets and upholstery, comprehensive water extraction is vital. Without extraction, the fibers in damp fabric can quickly collect mildew and dangerous types of mold. Bad odors are just the tip of the iceberg with water damaged fabrics; long term effects include health risks from mold spores and spreading infestations.

    Our teams understand the crucial step of water extraction with all our routine cleanings.

    Emergency Extraction

    Large scale water damage must also be treated with our extraction services during the restoration process. Flooding, burst pipes, and heavy rains are common causes of water damage in homes and businesses in the Denver-Aurora Metro area, but there are many other sources of excess water that could damage your building. For example, the water that remains after a building fire is extinguished is an unavoidable, yet devastating source of water damage.

    Our restoration teams are experts in even the most extreme water damage situations. With our 24/7/365 emergency hotline, we can come to your aid in any disaster and provide immediate attention to your recovery.
