Every homeowner hopes their home operates like it is supposed to. Unfortunately, this is just simply not realistic. Even if we do our best to maintain our home on a regular basis, life still happens. Appliances break. Floods pour down rain. Stains happen. Kids spill. And so much more. Today Tough Carpet Cleaning wants to help you know what to do if you find yourself with an unexpected water heater flood.
Stop Water Leak
When you find your home flooded it is extremely overwhelming. Panic sets in as you try to assess the damage. You may not be able to decide what you should do first. The first thing that you need to do is turn off your water so that the flooding will stop. Then you will want to find the source of the flooding. Thousands of homeowners each year find that the cause of flooding in their home is their water heater. Studies show that water heaters cause millions of dollars in damages each and every year.
Water Extraction After a Flood
Once you have found the source of the flood and turned off the water you will want to remove any valuable items from the flooded area. Sometimes these items can be saved if you act quickly enough. You may not be able to move these items on your own but you will want to try. Next you will want to clean up the standing water right away. This is where Tough Carpet Cleaning comes in handy. We can come out and help you remove the standing water. We have industrial equipment that help us extract the water from your carpet. It is extremely important to get all of the water out of your carpet. If water is left in your carpet it will ruin your carpet and cause mold to grow.
