Initially, especially if the room is under a few
inches of water or more, you might decide your
only recourse is to replace the carpeting.

However, you might be able to save some money by
having it repaired instead using our emergency
water damage and restoration services.

The first, and most important thing you need to
do determine the cause of the water damage and
stop the flow of water into the room.

The next thing you will want to do is call for
emergency service right away. The longer the
carpeting sits in standing water and remains wet
the more damage it can experience.

In addition, you will want to avoid walking on
the carpeting as much as possible, as excessive
foot traffic could cause further damages to
already wet carpeting.

Once we arrive, we can help assess the situation,
provide assistance in removing all furniture and
items out of room, dry it off and storing it in a
dry area of the home.

Ideally, the excess water needs to be extracted
from the carpeting, fans set up, and other steps
taken to help dry out the carpeting as quickly as
possible to prevent extensive damages.

The source of the water is the determining factor
often used to decide the best course of action
 repair or replace the carpeting.

12
Regardless of the end result, it is essential to
get the carpeting dried out as soon as possible
to avoid further damages, not only to the
carpeting, but also drywall, baseboards,
underlayments, and subflooring.

13
If the source of the water was from a sanitary
source that is, broken fresh water pipe then
it is possible to save the carpeting.

14
Once the carpeting is fully dried, it is treated
with various agents to prevent mold, mildew, and
bacteria from developing.

15
If the source of the water is from an
unsanitary source that is a backed up sewer
line, toilet overflow, or dishwasher or washing
machine overflow

the extent and level of contamination is assessed
to determine the most appropriate action to take.
www.drcarpet.ca

647-800-5199
17
For instance, with washing machines and
dishwashers, the contaminants are easily
treatable with anti-bacterial agents, so the
carpeting could be saved.

18
For sewage line backups and toilet overflows,
then it might be necessary to replace the
carpeting. Again, it depends on the actual amount
of contamination.

19
In cases where there was black water that
flooded room, then it is often better to replace
the carpeting, simply because black water means
it is full of different containments, which could
include raw sewage.
