Flood Dry Carpet Tips & Hints

If your basement is flooded, you need to act fast to flood dry carpet. Mold and mildew can set in within hours and the damage to your carpet can be permanent.

In any event, some things you could do before our emergency teams arrive:

  1. Firstly, try to find and stop the water intrusion source.
  2. Try and identify the extent of the water damaged area. You can do this by tracing the pathways of the water to find where the damage has spread.
  3. Plan and start the clean up by collecting items from the floor. Find a spare room where some of the household/office items may need to be stored temporarily while the restoration is in progress.


  • Leave books, magazines or other coloured items on wet carpets or floors which may stain the carpet.
  • Use TVs or other household appliances while standing on wet carpets or floors, especially not on wet concrete floors.
