Don’t Assume a Flooded Carpet is a Ruined Carpet

Too many homeowners have experienced the misery of a flooded area in their home. When water covers a carpet it’s certainly not convenient but the situation might not be a dire as you think. Once the source of water is discovered, it’s important to assess if the water is clean or dirty. Clean water typically comes from a burst washing machine, a leak in the foundation or a broken pipe. Dirty water results from a backup in the sewer or washing machine drain water. Just as you might think, clean water is slightly easier to deal with, but when there is an accumulation of dirty water, this can be potentially dangerous for a number of reasons so it’s important to bring in the professionals to clean these kind of messes.
