If the roof leaks or the plumbing fixtures on the second floor cause a flood, one of your top priorities should be drying out your carpets. Call a carpet cleaner in Tampa promptly. Carpet cleaners can quickly extract the water from your carpet and use a carpet shampooer to sanitize the flooring. If water is allowed to linger, the problem will only get worse. The water that has damaged your carpet may not necessarily be clean. Your floors have likely been contaminated with bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms. If the water is allowed to remain in the carpet, these microorganisms will quickly multiply and can lead to health problems for your family.
Calling carpet cleaners to restore your water damaged carpet will support your family’s health in another way: By preventing the spread of toxic mold and mildew. Mold spores can easily travel on air currents and they multiply rapidly on wet surfaces such as waterlogged carpet. By having your carpets professionally restored right away, you can reduce the possibility that you’ll have to replace them because of mold.
