If your carpet gets wet, here?s what to do

Many homeowners are shocked to find themselves with wet carpet flooring in the event of leaks, spills, or flooding and often panic, wondering what to do. If you're dealing with wet carpeting, you should know there are some things you can do to quell the situation, and here are some ideas that can help.

Wet carpet, not a problem

Wet carpeting can be a hassle, causing mildew, mold, and the odors accompanying it if not treated promptly and adequately. That's why it's critical to think about the steps you should take and start in the most obvious place for any water emergency.

Remove as much water from your carpet in New Franken, WI, as possible, which is often easiest to accomplish with a wet/dry vac or a shampooer set to dry mode only. Work from the outside of the damp space to the inside so you don't spread the moisture any further.

Once you've removed as much dampness as possible, the next step is to dry the area, using a dehumidifier, fan, or heater to speed the process along. Adding newspaper below the carpet can leach dampness out of the padding, allowing for quicker drying time.
