Flooding does occur throughout the Florida coast, more than people would like it to, but luckily we are here to help our valued customers with their water damage needs. Here, we would like to highlight the importance of properly cleaning and drying out carpets after a flood, even a minor one. You may think that just an inch or two of water is not a big deal, and just leave your carpet to its own devices after the waters have receded, but along with flood waters come particles including bacteria, mold and allergens, which, when coupled with a wet environment will create the desirable breeding ground for a big mold problem.
Anytime a flood occurs in your home, it’s important to call in the professionals to dry things out to avoid serious problems – both cosmetic and health – for you and your family. When your carpeting gets wet, you probably notice an odd smell. That smell is all of the mold and bacteria that are thriving in the moist environment and getting well on their way to ruining your home – and your life – if it is one of the types of toxic mold that can cause severe reactions in people who are exposed to it.
In order to properly care for carpets after a flood, we will first come in and use our dehumidifiers, vacuums and fans to dry the area. Then decontaminants are used to stop the spread of mold, and finally, we steam clean your carpet, leaving it fresh and good as new so you don’t have to worry about mold and moisture taking over and ruining your lovely abode. If you’re not sure that you need a professional, you probably do. Most of the methods that people use to try to clean up after a flood can actually make mold problems worse down the line, so call us at iMold first thing!
