April Showers may create beautiful May flowers, but sometimes they also create water problems. A flooded basement can be a homeowners nightmare, and if not addressed by professionals, can lead to very costly repairs. L&N Specializes in water extraction and carpet repair/installation. When dealing with water damage to carpet, there are a few things to consider:
-Water, clean or dirty, has micro-organisms living in it, and they must be killed to take care of the problem in it’s entirety. A lot of people think because they dried their carpet out, we can come clean it and that takes care of the odor that persists. This is not correct. While the carpet is dry, those organisms are lying dormant, and once we apply our steam cleaning(heat and moisture), they are once again active and can grow into mold and mildew that can spread beyond your carpet, into drywall and furniture. Along with the growth, there is the very strong odor of mildew that intensifies over time. L&N offers enzyme treatments that can take care of these organisms, and the odor,assuring that the problem is taken care of.
-Most of the time, the padding has to be pulled out, as the dark area under the carpet provides the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, mold, and/or mildew. L&N can provide this service, and re-install new padding, prior to cleaning, to ensure that there is no more bacteria waiting to grow in the future.
-Should you have standing water, L&N Carpet Cleaning can come in and extract that water, and proceed in the best way to get this problem taken care of as quickly as possible.
