Should You Replace Carpeting After Water Damage?

Should You Replace Carpeting After Water Damage?

No matter the cause, water damage should be addressed immediately, as it is a serious problem. Water damage can hurt a homeowner or business owner financially, cause mold growth, and cause structural damage.


After water damage occurs, there is a lot to do and think about, including wondering if a carpet can be saved. If the water damage occurred on or around a carpet, should the carpet be replaced? In short, if the carpet was wet for 72 hours or longer, it should be replaced, along with all the padding underneath the carpet. Or you may be able to get away with just replacing the padding underneath the carpet. Mold could be in the carpet and it will be difficult to get rid of. However, many mold remediation, water damage, and carpet cleaning companies, like our team at Daleen Restoration and Remediation, can often salvage a water-damaged carpet.

How a Water Damage Restoration Company Can Help Save Your Carpet

If you are not a professional at salvaging carpets and mold removal, you may want to leave it to the professionals to save your rug or carpet.

⦁ Professionals can truly determine if you can save a rug or if it needs to be thrown out.
⦁ Adding baking soda to wet carpets and blotting with towels is not enough to remove water damage or prevent mold.
⦁ A shop vacuum is unable to remove water from undeath carpeting.
⦁ A professional carpet cleaning company can pull up carpets to allow the underside to dry and examine for any mold and mildew growth.
⦁ A water damage restoration company can check the home’s subflooring to make sure it isn’t crumbling.
⦁ A water damage restoration company can remove excess humidity in your home to avoid mold growth and long-term damage.
⦁ A water damage restoration company can monitor humidity levels after water damage occurred while making sure all excess water is removed.

It’s a good idea to get your water damage assessed right away on your carpet. You don’t want to leave any excess water behind, which can cause mold growth and damage to your home down the line. A professional carpet cleaning company and water damage restoration company can also get the odor permanently out of your carpet, which store-bought deodorizes may not be able to do.
