5 Reasons Why You Should Hire a Professional Company for Carpet Water Extraction

It’s the last thing homeowners want to deal with—soaked floors, walls, and flooding in your home. Whether the flooding was caused from a huge storm, a water heater tank leak, or an overflowing toilet, it’s not the type of repair that a homeowner looks forward to tackling.

Although you might be tempted to rent a shop vacuum and handle the water extraction and cleanup yourself, this is solely a job for a professional. Flood water can ruin your furniture, flooring, walls, but it can also damage your home with a build-up of mold and bacteria, which can be dangerous for a nonprofessional to handle without the right equipment.

Need more convincing to hire a professional for carpet water extraction? Here are five reasons to hire a professional for the job.

1. Have Peace of Mind

After your home floods, it’s easy to get in panic mode. When you hire a professional for carpet water extraction company, they can provide peace of mind—especially if they are open and available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. A professional water damage restoration company will take care of all of the details so you can focus on what really matters.

2. Prevent a Build-up of Mold and Bacteria

When your home floods, it doesn’t take too long for mold and bacteria to pop up on the carpets, walls, subfloors, and your belongings. Hiring a professional company to extract the water, run dehumidifiers and employ the use of moisture detectors will ensure that bacteria and mold doesn’t have the chance to build up and spread, which can be a huge health risk to you and your family.

3. Get Rid of Odors

Because bacteria and mold can appear after a large flood in your home, it can also leave behind a musty, dirty smell. A professional water extraction company can not only eliminate the flood waters, but they can get rid of the smells that flooding has caused, using an antimicrobial treatment.

4. You Can Save Your Personal Items

You may think that all is lost after an episode of flooding in your home, but a professional water damage restoration company can help you salvage as many of your personal items as possible using professional-level drying devices, dehumidifiers and drying mats and can check the items for mold and bacteria damage. A company who specializes in carpet, rug and upholstery cleaning has special tools to clean and restore your items, so that you don’t have to look at the expensive prospect of replacing them.
