1. Carpet water damage cleaning assessment

For assessing the water saturation levels and the water carpet damage, we use special moisture detection monitors. It is also ideal for learning if the damage occurred from clean or contaminated water. It assists us to plan for drying carpet after water damage. We will arbitrate how much your flooded carpets are damaged, underlay and subfloor as well to know if it has started to affect your other items and walls.

flood damage carpet cleaning processOur water damage restoration technicians will develop a suitable remediation program after studying the category and class of water damage. We will advise if it is best to replace the carpet or to clean and dry it for reuse. We will commence the water damage restoration immediately to avoid further structural and carpet damage.

2. Water removal from a flood-damaged carpet and wet surfaces

With our specialised flood damage drying equipment such as speed dryers, dehumidifiers and air movers, we will remove the excess water with significant airflow and vacuum suction. Removing the existing water will eventually stop further damage to other items and walls from getting wet and moist. This water damaged carpet cleaning process also helps to keep the drying time at the lowest possible time.

Hence, it has to be done first and fast because water and its residue could penetrate walls and surrounding secondary items that could help grow mould and mildew. Failing to extract water adequately can damage the sub-floor underneath and may prove to be more expensive.

Do not attempt to use towels to extract water as it is just not sufficient. Also, please do not use vacuum cleaners to soak water as it may prove to be fatal and dangerous. Call us for professional water damage restoration. We could reach all suburbs of Melbourne in an hour.

3. Odour removal process with bacterial decontamination

Once the water is removed, we work on removing the foul moist smell and odour associated with it. We also treat carpets with the anti-microbial bacterial treatment to sanitise, prevent the growth of bacteria and mould. Our unique therapy eliminates the unbearable damp smell.

4. Specialised water damage carpet drying

carpet cleaning and drying process using air moversOur industrial-strength Air-movers, carpet dryers and Dehumidifiers will dry and clean moisture from water flooded carpets, sub-floors and carpet underlays to prevent the mould and mildew growth. We may lift your carpet to achieve optimal required results for drying carpet after water damage. Dehumidifiers will remove moisture from wet surfaces. If the humidity is not removed from the wet areas; then it could cause secondary damage to other related items and walls.

5. Removal of stains and browning from water damaged carpet

Once the flooded carpet drying program is processed, we will attempt to clean the stains that water damaged carpets could have left. Our browning treatment will lift and extract cellulosic browning that may have resulted from flood damage.

6. Ongoing monitoring of the water damage drying process

Our water damage cleaning experts will continue to observe the process right from the beginning until the drying and staining process is completed to provide maximum satisfying results. We will keep you informed of all the procedures and report any issues to you, if any, with a process on how water damage carpet cleaning will be handled and managed.

7. Re-laying and restretching carpets

Carpets, when dried, will have to be re-laid and restretched if possible as and where required. This restretching process will ensure you do not have any bulge on the carpets across the room, and it remains uniform through the surface. Re-laying and restretching is to be done with utmost care.

8. Steam cleaning

Once the carpet is stretched and re-laid, we will perform carpet steam cleaning on your dried carpet to ensure all stains are removed and to make it look like new again. Our deep cleaning method allows us to agitate the carpet fibres to remove dust effectively.

9. Insurance reporting

We will provide you with the final report of the work for insurance purpose. We provide you with all the justification for all the efforts we took during the water damage restoration process. This report could help you with your insurance claims.
