Storm Damage Carpet Cleaning After Flood Damage To Your Cumming Home SERVPRO Restores Carpets After Flooding in Your Cumming Home

You Do Not Want to Be "Cumming" Home to Wet Carpets, Call SERVPRO

When Hurricane Michael hit Florida in October of 2018, residents saw for themselves just how much damage severe weather can do. With severe flooding affecting the county, many homeowners found themselves facing a challenging and prolonged cleanup job.
 
Flood damage is not always as dramatic as being caught in a hurricane. Seepage from the basement of your home or runoff from the garden during bad weather can quickly cause flood damage to your house. If you have had the misfortune to suffer flood damage to your Cumming home, one of the major parts of the cleanup process is restoring your carpets to their pre-flood condition. It is an unfortunate fact that carpets quickly absorb flood water. If carpets are left untreated, there is a real risk of mold growing in them. This does not only smell bad; it can also become a health hazard for everyone in your household.
 
Whether or not your carpets can be saved depends on the type of flood water they were exposed to and the length of time. If the flood water contained sewage, your carpets are not salvageable. In most other cases your carpets can be saved if they get the right treatment. Our SERVPRO team comes with all the necessary treatment agents and equipment to get your carpets clean and dry as quickly as possible. Our aim is to give your carpet such a thorough workover that our slogan is appropriate-- "Like it never even happened."
 
Before we can treat your carpet, we need to extract all water from the surrounding area. Our IICRC certified professionals come with both hand-held and truck mounted water extraction equipment to clear your home of the flood water. Once that is done, we turn our attention to your carpets. We dry under and around your carpets using powerful fans and dehumidifiers, to dry them out as quickly as possible and prevent mold growth. We can lift the carpeting from the tack strips and "float" them as we inject rapid air circulation. This effort greatly enhances the drying time and offers a better chance of a full restoration.
 
The final stage in carpet cleaning after a flood is to deodorize. Your home will not really feel like yours again until the damp flood smell has gone, which is why our technicians are trained to deodorize your carpets and leave them smelling clean. We can fog your carpets, HVAC systems, and wall voids with our SERVPRO odor control system to get rid of any odors.

If your carpets have been damaged by flood water, let SERVPRO of Forsyth and Dawson counties assist you. Call us at (770) 887-1962 to arrange a visit.
