Emergency wet carpet restoration involves water extraction from floor and carpet, underlay and sub-floor to remove moisture. We use high-tech water extraction tools to remove moisture from flooded wet carpet. Upon water removal, we sanitise wet carpets and steam clean it using vapour and heat. At the same time, we use anti-browning and anti-bacterial treatment to remove stains and sanitise the carpet respectively.
Drying a wet carpet quickly will not have a bad odour or mould damage. There is a possibility of having a carpet damp even after the steam cleaning and so we use commercial air movers and dehumidifiers to remove moisture and dry out the wet carpet. Depending upon the flooded carpet damage, we also use specialised heaters to accelerate the dehumidifying process more efficiently.

days to completely dry the wet carpet during which we collect the carpet drying equipment from your premise until then we allow it to run continuously for 24 hours.
There are three ways one can dry wet carpet: Carpet drying from the surface, carpet drying from beneath the carpet and carpet drying by removing underlay. Each of the three methods is explained below:
The easiest of all the drying method is carpet drying from the surface. In this method, drying equipment is placed near the wet surface and the hot air is blown directly towards it. This process will dry the wet area faster however there are also considerations to be taken for underlay, the tyre of carpet fibre and water saturation level. This method is best suitable for carpet tiles, hard floor coverings, flotex carpets and stick carpets.
In this carpet drying process, the carpet is lifted up from one of the corners and air mover is placed there. The air is blown to dry out the padding, underlay and subfloor. This process will dry the carpet faster which also reduces the chances of mould growth and bad smell. It also helps in reducing the chances of developing water stains.
The carpet underlay is mostly disposed of at all times and hence the best way of carpet drying is to lift the carpet, remove and dispose off underlay to set up the carpet dryers underneath to dry out the wet carpet and the floor. In Frankston homes, the carpet floor coverings contain rubber underlay, or foam underlay or jute underlay and none of them is salvageable so remove them to speed up the drying process. This process provides magnificent results that salvage the carpet, stains free with the prevention of mould and bad smell. The result could be made more satisfactory by sanitising the carpet and applying the odour removal therapy to keep the carpets odourless. However, this method is costly comparatively than other methods explained above.
