When you wake up or come home and find that your household has been flooded, it can be overwhelming and horrific to have to deal with. A flood can be caused by many reasons such as a water heater that has malfunctioned and stopped working. It can also come about because a rain storm comes quickly and has no way to drain through the city adequately. This can cause the water level to rise and possibly make it into your home. The last main way that water can get into your home is if a water pipe bursts. If a pipe bursts it may take some time to stop the water from flowing. Water damage in a home can cause damage to anything and everything that is on the floor including your flooring such as carpet and rugs.
Why Call a Water Restoration Company?
The first thing you want to do if you have been a victim of a flood is to pick up and move any and all personal belongings and lay them out to dry in a safe area away from the flood. When you have moved and set your items out of the way, you need to start looking for a company to dry, clean and deodorize the carpet. If you leave water to settle it can cause a serious amount of damage including dangerous mold and mildew. When the carpet is left damp and wet, it can be a perfect breeding ground for mold to start to grow. Mold and mildew can cause major health concerns and cause people to become very sick.
