When you have got a flood-damaged wet carpet, it becomes a breeding area for mould spores to grow and spread. The longer you keep your carpet wet, the more humid you make the surrounding area which could increase the chances of unbearable foul smell and mould growth. The moist carpet could then becomes unusable if kept wet for too long. Wet carpet could have resulted from any of these conditions such as burst pipe floods, dishwasher overflow, bath overflows, washing machine drains and the likes. When you have got a larger area which is wet then it requires specific process and specialised equipment to remove water, dry the wet carpet and treat it to prevent mould growth. Mould damage could be more severe and may get worse if you keep your carpets wet for more than 48 hours.

Our emergency process and high-tech equipment will minimize the water damage at the earliest. We also have extraction compartments within our machines which sucks and refill water as required.

Our machines are capable of extracting huge volume of water within few hours depending upon the condition of damage and water situation.

Water spills and penetrates into multiple areas under the bed, sofa and many other places which could become secondary damage. These areas also become moist and if not treated well, mould growth could be seen visible after few days. Water damage is a critical and an emergency situation which has to be tackled within few hours of knowing the flood damage.

1. Water damage assessment

For assessing the water saturation levels and the damage extent we use special moisture monitors. It is also ideal to learn if the damage has been from a clean water or contaminated water sources to plan for water damage cleaning and drying program. We will arbitrate how much your carpets are damaged, underlay and subfloor as well to know if the flood damage has started to affect your other items and walls.

Our experts will develop a suitable flood damage restoration with drying program after studying the water situation and source water for damage. We will advise if it is best to replace the carpet or to attempt it to clean and dry it for reuse. If we need to remove the water, dry it and clean then we will at this stage have a fair idea of the cost and the time it will take to get the work done.

2. Water removal from wet carpet and wet surfaces

With our specialised water removal extraction equipment, we will remove the existing 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 process also helps to keep the drying time at the lowest possible time. This process has to be done first and fast because water and its residue could penetrate into walls and surrounding secondary item that could possibly help grow mould and mildew. If this process is done appropriately and effectively, then water could damage the sub-floor beneath it and could prove to be more expensive.

Do not attempt to use towels to remove water as it is not effective and fast. Also please do not use vacuum cleaners to soak water as it can prove to be fatal and dangerous. Call a professional to handle the water damaged situation. We could reach anywhere within Melbourne in an hours time.

3. Wet carpet odour removal process with bacteria contamination and air quality

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 special treatment also helps eliminate the unbearable damp smell.

Our industrial strength Airmovers and Dehumidifiers will dry and clean moisture from wet carpets, sub-floors and underlay to prevent the mould and mildew growth. We may lift your carpet to achieve optimal required results. Dehumidifiers will remove moisture from wet surfaces and throws them into the air as if the moisture is not removed from the wet areas then it could cause secondary damage to other attached items and walls. 

5. Removal of staining and browning from flood carpet damage

Once the drying is processed, we will attempt to clean the stains that wet carpets could have left. Our browning treatment will remove cellulosic browning that may have resulted out of flood damage situation.
