Utah Carpet Cleaning After a Water Damage Event
As dreaded as water damage is, it can happen, resulting in property damage and making your house unhealthy to live in. Among the property damage that a typical Utah home will endure due to a flooding event is carpet damage. The carpet, in most cases, will be the first item to soak up flood water, and, therefore, the first item to bear the brunt of the water flooding. This is usually the case, regardless of the extent of flooding. Whether you are faced with a 100-year-record rainfall that causes extensive flooding or you are facing plumbing leaks that floods just parts of your floor, your carpet will soak up the flood water.
While many homeowners will consider throwing a water-damaged carpet away owing to the nature damage, this should not always be the case. There are instances where proper and professional carpet cleaning will suffice to save a carpet (and even that special hand knitted rug). As such, this is especially important for individuals whose carpets have sentimental value and are in a sense, irreplaceable. Moreover, homeowners who are not interested in investing the huge sum of money that is involved in replacing their carpet can opt for professional carpet cleaning. In this regard, water damage carpet cleaning will save your precious carpet as well as save you money
Aside from saving the carpet from extensive and permanent damage, having your carpet professionally cleaned reduces the health risks associated with water damage on carpets. When a carpet soaks in a lot of water, it retains a lot of the water, creating conducive conditions for bacteria growth and proliferation, the growth of mold, and other health hazards. This is especially the case in the event where the flooding has been caused by black water (the unsanitary water from the sewage plumb line) and to some extent grey water. By having your carpet professionally cleaned, you do away with all these health hazards, thereby restoring your house to its pristine sanitary state.
It is also important to have the carpet professionally cleaned as this will also aid the drying process in a flooded house. As mentioned above, any flooding results in the carpet soaking a lot of water, which in turn creates excessive humidity in the indoor air. Excessive indoor humidity is known to affect the wall, the paint, encourage mold growth, and also negatively impact the structural integrity of the house in worst-case scenarios. Professional carpet cleaning helps to mitigate the amount of humidity in the air, thereby reducing ill-effects of excessive indoor humidity.
