Do Your Carpets or Rugs Show Signs of Damp?

Do you suspect the carpets in your home may be damp? You may need the services of Sydney flood restoration experts. Floor coverings can become damp for many reasons. These include the after effects of flooding, leaks, and pet urine.

When it comes to identifying the cause of the damp, your nose is often your best guide. Pet urine has a distinctive odour that’s very unpleasant while mould causes a dank, musty, unhealthy stench. Moreover pet urine tends to cause discolouration while mould growth may be visible on the surface of your carpets.

Each type of dampness has its own specific solution and you need to act fast to render your home healthy and to salvage your carpets. If you value your carpets and the quality of your home environment, you’ll want to call in professional water damage experts.

Flooding Aftermath

One common reason for damp is that your home may have been flooded and not properly dried out. Flood renovation is a specialised job that has to be carried out by experts who can ensure that every last patch of your carpets and floors are totally free from moisture.

If you try to do it yourself, you may neglect dealing with areas such as the carpet padding and the result is lingering dampness. If you suspect this is the case, call in Sydney flood restoration experts immediately. Otherwise your carpets could be permanently ruined.

Leaks and Seepage

Another cause is leaking from pipes or radiators, defective damp proof coursing, or moisture rising from a cellar. In such cases, you’ll need to deal with the structural defects causing the problem first. Then you can use the services of a Sydney water damage expert to thoroughly dry the carpets and various areas inside your home.

Animal Mishaps

If you spot a damp patch on your carpets accompanied by a sharp acidic odour, the cause is probably cat or dog urine. You can try cleaning this with special agents and cleaning solutions but be sure it’s suitable for your carpet. Using the wrong cleaner can cause irreparable damage.
