Major calamities such as flash floods or fire may cause major damage to your house and, of course, to your house items, too. Some calamities and unfortunate incidents are inevitable and, most of the time, they would leave you with no other choice than to pick up the pieces and just start your life again.
Restoring your carpet after fire or flood could prove to be an extremely challenging task. Usually, when your home suffered flood damage, your carpets may become too soaked in water that your only option is to throw it away.
But, if your carpet is thoroughly soaked in water and you really want to save it, the best thing you can do is to ask for professional assistance. Carpet restoration experts would know the most appropriate step to take to restore your carpet to its original condition. They would also let you know if there’s no hope left for your carpet to be restored.
The same goes for carpets damaged by fire. There are many carpet types that are virtually fireproof. Wool carpets, for instance, are self-extinguishing so you can have peace of mind that it’s very unlikely for your wool carpet to turn into ash in case of fire.
However, aside from the possibility that your carpet will also be wet after fire rescuers put out the fire, your carpet may accumulate strong smoke odors from the fire. Apart from smoke odor, soot can stain your carpet – along with other burnt particles that may be trapped in the carpet fibers.
Again, one of the best options you have is to get in touch with reputable fire restoration companies to take care of the problem for you. Restoring carpets after fire damage won’t only be a strenuous task; it could also call for repeated cleaning processes. The smell of smoke may take a while to be completely removed that you may need to clean your carpet again and again.
Another reason that makes calling professionals to restore your carpets the best option for you is that they can also do some minor repairs on your carpet if needed. For example, if your carpet suffered holes from the fire, professionals can attend to that and you can count on them to rehabilitate your carpet to its good shape.
