Water Damage Carpet Drying & Restoration Method Followed at Master Carpet Repair

Given ahead is the process we follow for cleaning water damaged carpet repair Melbourne:

a. A thorough analysis of the damaged site

Our technicians identify the most common hazardous items and remove them. Thereafter they assess the entire area with the help of moisture meters and thermal imaging systems. The category and class of water loss is ascertained too. The carpet cleaners then map out the damage that has been caused to the carpet, subfloor, underlays, frames, walls, etc. They are also equipped to find out the exact rate of contamination that has been caused. The magnitude of water damage can be measured only by a comprehensive and detailed study. It helps our technicians to know which items can be repaired and which need to be disposed off completely for the safety of the residents. They will also know which parts of the damaged property need to be cut off and thrown.

b. Creating a blueprint of work needed to be done for cleaning the flood-damaged carpets.

The data found out through the assessment in the initial stage helps our technicians in using the most appropriate restoration method. The costs and the expected time to dry, clean and restore the site is found out too.

c. Water extraction

Our technicians extract all the excess water trapped inside the carpet by way of flood. For that, they make use of extraction instruments. Performing this process carefully is highly important for the entire cleaning and restoration process. Draining out the excess water efficiently is essential to drain out the moisture and help in drying out carpets quickly.

d. Mould control treatment

Our technicians use antimicrobial solutions to prevent mold growth on the carpets due to moisture. Mold growth happens usually when water gets collected on surfaces like carpets and rugs, windows, etc. Thus, mold destroys such surfaces and should not be left to grow further. Mold controls are also useful in controlling the growth of bacteria and other harmful allergens.

e. Air movers and dehumidifiers are used for faster drying.

Industrial air movers are used to expedite the drying process after the water extraction is over. The air mover also is used to dry the air below the carpet for better results. Dehumidifiers are also used in conjunction to demoisturize the air as well.

f. Stain removal from carpets that are water damaged.

After the wet carpet becomes fully dry and clean, the technicians will clean any stains left by the residual water.

g. Carpet restretching repair.

The carpet is stretched and laid down again properly to avoid any bumps or ripples coming out from it.

h. Keeping track of the moisture content.

Our technicians keep a constant track of the moisture content all through the water-damaged carpet restoration process. The air movers and dehumidifiers are kept working on the site and checked at frequent periods to control moisture from growing or coming back. The dehumidifier notifies when the drying is finished, and the entire moisture is sucked out from all the objects.

i. Steam cleaning and sanitization of the carpet

Our technicians steam clean the carpet at this stage. They also sanitize the carpet for eliminating any remaining bacteria and pollutants. The sanitizer takes away the previous smelly state leaving the carpet in a more pleasant condition.

j. Report for insurance claim

The team would give you a report when the entire carpet restoration process is complete. That is an important document for insurance claims.
