Carpet Water Damage in a Toronto Home Basement!

How to deal with Water Damage Carpet from Toronto Flooding!

 If you experience a basement flood or your home has water damage, it is likely that mold will begin to grow in the affected area because it becomes the ideal environment for mold. After a storm, broken pipe, or a leak the bacteria that are in the water will combine with the bacteria in the carpet which will create an environment perfect for mold. 

When you first experience water damage to your carpet it is important that you act as soon as possible because the longer it takes for you to act, the smaller the chance of you being able to save the carpet. This is why we highly recommend that you have a certified team on site as soon as you notice any water damage in your home. Once you have a qualified team on site they can help you to restore your carpet and stop the mold growth.

Our water damage restoration team will do everything possible in order to save your carpet!

Below we’ve included the steps that our team takes in a situation like this.

- Extracting the water: Our first priority when we first come in is to extract all the water from the damaged area, we do this using pumps and high-powered vacuums.

- Fan the area: We use fans to help circulate the air and try to prevent any mold, they also help dry the area at the same time.

- Dehumidifiers: We use powerful dehumidifiers to get rid of any humidity in the area, since mold loves humidity it’s very important that we prevent it.

- Cleaning: Once we have extracted the water from the carpets, we sanitize them and remove any mold or mildew that might have begun to grow. This also cleans any bacteria that may have been in the water.

- Baseboards and wall cleanup: Apart from your carpet it’s also important that we clean your baseboards and walls since they have also been in contact with the water and are in risk of getting mold.

- Drying of all furniture: If the room that your carpet was in had any furniture, we would need to dry that as well and clean it to ensure that it is safe from mold spores. Any furniture that was in contact with water needs to be cleaned and dried. If you can remove furniture from the room before the water damage gets too extensive, we recommend you do it.

In the case of water damage, we highly recommend that you call a certified professional to help you deal with any water damage, this is important not only to help save your carpet and furniture but to prevent any potential mold growth that could be harmful to your health. GTA Restoration has a team on standby 24/7 and can help with any water damage issues anywhere in the Greater Toronto Area.
