Good Advise on Post Flood Carpet Repair


 
Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Crafts
Water normally results in some level of damage when it meets with the carpeting in your home. If your home has recently been subjected to water damage due to flooding, one of the first things that you take into consideration is carpet restoration. Whenever possible, there are people that prefer to restore their carpets. This is also cheaper than replacing them.

While many are likely to completely replace this aspect of the flooring, there are many others who would rather repair the carpet that they have. This is generally quite possible, and can be easy to do. This is also cheaper than replacing them. However, many people think they must pay someone to do the carpet repair after flood, without knowing that they can do that by themselves. This is not possible in all the situations, but sometimes it is.

Water can affect your carpets in different ways. It is important to determine the level of damage that was made to them, in order to see if carpet repair after a flood is possible or you need to replace the carpeting in your home.

The source of the water that damaged your house is very important when establishing whether your carpets can be restored. If your house was affected by rain water or a lake or river flooding, then you can think about restoring. This is also the case if the water came from pipes in your home. Restoration is close to impossible if the water comes from the sewer or the toilet plumbing.

Before attempting a carpet repair after a flood, first think about the other repairs that need to be done in the house. They might also affect the carpet and it would be a shame to ruin it again just after repairing it. Make sure that the source of water that produced the damage is completely eliminated and then proceed to repairing the carpet, once you are sure no more water is going to affect it. You need a wet vacuum that vacuums water safely. It is not enough to just go once over the carpet. Repeat this procedure a couple of times, until you are sure that no more water is in the carpet.

You should do this prior to restoring the carpet, and test out the maintenance to ensure that the problem is completely eliminated. Once you have confirmed this step, you may begin the carpet restoration process. This will begin by getting a vacuum cleaner that can safely be used to vacuum up water. You should go over the carpet at least a couple of times to ensure that all the excess water has been completely lifted from the carpet.

Next, you should purchase a good cleaner that has disinfectant properties. You will want to mix it thoroughly with a small amount of bleach. Please make sure that the chemicals are safe to mix together. You should then scrub each area of the floor with the solution. The next step is to take the padding from underneath the carpet out and replace it with new padding. This is where most water will be retained. Prior to placing the new padding down, you should be certain to run a heavy fan on the area to ensure that it is dry.

Once you have laid the new padding down, you can then replace the carpet. You may want to take stock in machinery that can assist in the carpet restoration process to assist in this task. Best results are obtained by professionals or by buying things like a wet vacuum, flood pumps or carpet restoration chemicals. Buying them can turn out to be more expensive than paying someone to do the job for you.
