When a home flood occurs, it’s essential to act immediately. The longer you wait to address the issue, the harder it will be to repair and restore your home to pre-flood condition.
If your carpet is flooded with water, most times, it can be restored by a professional if it has not been wet for more than 24-48 hours. If the water has saturated in the padding longer, it can upgrade to category two water: more prone to bacteria and mold. Standing water can cause respiratory problems if not addressed quickly. It is extremely important to begin the dry-out process immediately!
The first thing you should do is contact your insurance company. This will help ensure that the damage is covered. Then contact a flood restoration company.
