Experiencing 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.
