How to restore carpets after a water damage?

Water damage to carpets in your home or office is not uncommon. Any homeowner would have experienced water damage to carpets at least once in the lifetime. For such unfortunate situations, here is a quick guide on how you can best restore your carpets after a water damage has occurred so you don’t incur huge damages and have to spend loads of money in putting new carpets.

Assessing how big or small the damage is

This is the first step in restoring carpets and cleaning them after a water damage has occurred. If the damage has occurred because of clean water such as rainwater, the process can be easy depending on what type of carpet you have and how much area has been affected. However, if the water damage has happened because of contaminated water such as sewerage, the bad news is that you’ve lost your carpets forever.

Finding the root cause of the water leakage

The next step is to understand if you can control the water leakage so no further damage happens and you can stop the damage from worsening.

Knowing about your insurance options

This is where your home insurance kicks in. if you have such cover, it is worth checking with your insurance company whether they cover this damage, so you can get new carpets instead of trying to fix the existing ones. Checking with your insurance company is important because replacing carpets in your whole house can end up being an expensive affair.

Checking a small patch before a full-blown repair

If you think you can restore the existing carpets and have found some cleaners that can help clean them thoroughly, it is worth starting this by doing a patch test on one area of the carpet. This way you are sure that your fix will work and that it will not further damage your carpet by leaving stain marks.

There are many other steps that you can take to restore your carpets after a water damage, but the ones listed above are the prerequisites, so you know that your efforts will bring in the right results.
