Efficient Carpet Drying of Wet Wall to Wall Carpeting

Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Health
The process of drying wet carpet can be long and hard. There is no doubt that wet carpet drying can take weeks and this is not good. We tell you this is not good because if you do not dry your wet carpet the right way, mildew could form and the room could start to stink.

Wet carpet is never fun to deal with but if you are dealing to wet carpet that is wall-to-wall, then this is a disaster. If you have had to deal with wet carpet that was wall-to-wall, then we know just how touch this can be. The truth is that if wet carpet is involved, it can never be fun.

When dealing with a wet wall-to-wall carpet, the problem is somewhat different due to the size. Most of the advice given concerning rugs can be used if the carpet is small enough and there is a place outside where it can be dried.

If it is felt the carpet cannot be removed, a concerted effort should be made to remove as much of the water as possible. Vacuums capable of removing water from the carpet can be obtained in many cities from rental companies. Hot water extraction units (steam) can be rented in many different types of establishments and the vacuum on these units can be used for water removal.

If a wet vacuum can be obtained, the carpet should be vacuumed until no more water can be removed. A large portion of the water can be vacuumed out of the face of the carpet; however, if it has gotten under the carpet and into the pad it may not be possible to pull this water through the carpet. This water has wicked through the back or gotten under the carpet at the edges. Many times the amount of water in the back can be determined by walking on wet carpet. If there is a lot of water under the carpet, the carpet will make a sopping sound.

If there appears to be a lot of water under the carpet, a portion of the carpet will have to raised. This can be done by pulling the carpet off the installation strips at one of the corners. After lifting a corner of the carpet, if the pad is wet, the entire carpet and pad will have to be removed. This is necessary so the flooring can be dried. Water on many types of flooring will result in buckling. Once the floor has dried the dry pad and carpet can be reinstalled.

Normally, the pad can be dried by allowing it to be exposed to good drying conditions. Even it does become discolored or stained, it really will not make any difference since it will be covered by the carpet. If the musty mildew odor is present, either the mildew should be killed or a new pad obtained.

Dirty water on the carpet presents another problem in that it should be removed while it is still wet. On location, about the only way this can be done is with the hot water extraction method. Many professional carpet cleaners are equipped to do this, or the equipment can be rented. If dirt is allowed to dry on the fibers, it will be very difficult to remove. The additional water added by the cleaning will be offset by the removal of greater amounts of water with the vacuum.
