It's Not 'Just the Carpet'
We at Mae's Carpet Cleaning have been called by people just like you who need help “just sucking up water from the carpet.”
The water can be from an overflowing sink, toilet, maybe a washing machine that had a little too much fun during the spin cycle… or it could be from something more serious, like a broken or frozen water pipe or roof damage from a storm.
No matter what, some homeowners only know about the squishy carpet and don’t know the water can affect many other areas in the home.
That kind of thinking can cause a lot of trouble.
While water can just damage the carpet, it usually goes other places as well… such as down the register vents into floors below, behind baseboards, under the walls and then up the drywall, into other rooms, under furniture that you never move, and into all kinds of other areas. It can also get into wood floors you thought were watertight, creating all kinds of very expensive problems if you don’t get it all dried out quick.
Sucking up the water is just one part of the job. Detecting where the moisture really went is important. Using professional tools and drying equipment to reach those areas and get them like they were before — bone dry, and safe for your family is the most effective way of doing so.
Calling your water damage pro immediately and listening to his expert advice is something smart consumers must do when water causes damage to your home. If you wait too long, you invite more trouble, such as mold and odors that are challenging to remove.
Remember, it’s not “just the carpet” — it can be other areas of your home too. Don’t take a chance. Call us at Mae's Carpet Cleaning for water damage!
