Plaster walls, wooden furniture, wooden flooring, board, etc., may get damaged due to the high moisture in the carpets. So, to prevent damage to the materials with hygroscopic property, water damaged carpets should be repaired at the earliest.
Cleaning water damaged carpet is a difficult task, and if you wait for a day or try to clean it by yourself, the situation may get worse.
Metro Carpet Repair Brisbane uses a specific process to provide you satisfactory results for your water damaged carpet. Our technique reduces the risk of bacterial, fungal growth and eliminates the odor and stains.
Water damaged carpet can be caused anywhere in a commercial or residential place. Washing machine overflow, wash basin leakage, punctured pipes, floodwater, etc., can cause water damage to your precious carpets. Most of the time, if the issue is ignored it may cause irreversible damage to your property and furniture.
Further, water damage is categorized broadly into three types depending on the source of water.
Water supply lines
The first category is associated with water supply lines such as broken pipes, dishwashers and washing machine malfunction, or sink overflows.
The source of water, which has some degree of contaminants or chemicals that may cause harm to humans, pets, is called greywater. Water discharge from the washing machine, dishwasher, sump, water from toilets, all are categorized as ‘Greywater’
This category of water carries highly dangerous pathogens, which may cause severe damage to human health. Sewage water, toilet backflow, medical water, seawater, manufacturing water, etc., are categorized under the black water. Further, if the greywater issue is not resolved in two days, it may transform into a black water issue.
If dangerous materials such as lead, asbestos, arsenic, mercury, etc., are a part of water, then they may require special cleaning measures and treatments.
The degree of damage is classified as per the rate of evaporation. Before proceeding with the treatment, it is crucial to determine the class of water damage.
The rate of evaporation is slow, and the material absorbs less moisture. This kind of issue has little or no effect on the carpet or the underlay.
In this scenario, the rate of evaporation is fast. In this class, there can be possible damage to the entire room, carpet, and even the underlay.
The rate of evaporation is the fastest, and this type of issue may affect the insulation, wooden structure, electrical circuits, carpets, flooring, etc.
This condition is applicable for objects with low porosity, and to dry them, requires very specific humidity and machines.
We are certified carpet restorers and have been providing professional carpet restoration service in Brisbane and its surroundings.
