Water Damage Restoration Services
Chem-Dry Carpet Solutions offers superior water damage restoration services on the Sunshine Coast. You don’t have to live on a flood plain to be tormented by water damage. Something as simple as a leaky pipe, washing machine overflow or hot water cylinder burst can do extreme damage to your carpets, underlay and the floor underneath. However, Chem-Dry professionals are prepared to tackle most anything. From minor pipe leaks to flooding, Chem-Dry can help restore what would appear to be a lost cause.
It is more than just the wet carpet that is the problem when flooding occurs. The underlay and sub-floor areas will need to be dried as quickly as possible to stop the growth of bacteria & mould, which cause odour problems.
Our procedure for wet carpet is as follows.
- Extract excess water using our commercial strength vacuum
- Prevent water stains by applying browning treatment to carpet
- Inspect for damage to subflooring
- Set up drying equipment including air movers and / or dehumidifiers – approx 24 to 48 hours
- Monitor drying process on a daily basis
- When the carpet is dry – relay carpet
- Steam clean and deodorise carpet
Notes on water restoration:
- An area the size of a standard bedroom may take up from 24-48 hours to dry
- Do NOT use power sources of any kind in a room that has been flooded – including ceiling fans / air conditioners
- Turn off water source or call a plumber to assist
- Place barriers between your furniture and the water – use aluminium foil on furniture legs to prevent staining. Also lift material like bedding & curtains to prevent dyes from bleeding into the carpet
- Remove area rugs to prevent dyes from staining the carpets
