• What to Do When You Have Water Damage on Your Carpets


    The stink! The mess! You'll want to call a professional carpet cleaning company to deal with water damage on carpets.

    If you're reading this, it's likely your carpets have water damage and you are in need of some serious carpet cleaning assistance. Maybe you're considering calling a professional carpet cleaning company to help you clean the mess (and that’s a really good idea!). You need to take action fast to avoid further damage and possible mold growth in your home, but you may be feeling overwhelmed at the moment. What should you do?

    First, take a deep breath.

    Next, contact a trusted professional immediately.

    Our team at Whitehall Carpet Cleaners serves Columbia, SC, and surrounding areas. Once we are on the scene, you can relax and know we will get things under control quickly and do what is necessary to clean your carpets.

    A carpet cleaning service will first figure out what type of water caused the leak, although you probably already have an idea. If the water is clean—such as from a water main—it's possible that your carpet will be salvageable. If the water is not clean—like from a sewer or plumbing issue—you may need to consider replacement, but the right company can help you with that too!

    You’ve Called the Carpet Cleaning Pro, Now What?

    The best thing to do while waiting for your carpet professional to arrive? Set up dehumidifiers in the affected area if you are sure the area is safe. This will help get the carpet-drying process started. Your carpet professional will bring dehumidifiers and large fans as well. The drying-out process could take hours, or it could take days.

    Dealing with this situation on your own may be tempting. However, it's imperative for the health of your family and the condition of your home that you call a professional right away. Left untreated, wet carpet can exacerbate asthma, allergies, and other respiratory problems, not to mention damage the floor underneath the carpet.
