If you have wet carpets, hard floors and walls due to flooding, you need a powerful wet carpet water extraction. Waiting can result in water damaged carpets, and this can also lead to mould build-up. The sooner you act, the better your chances of restoring the carpet to its original condition. Steam ‘n’ Dry Flood Restoration Auckland Services have provided flood cleaning and carpet drying services in South Auckland, North Shore, West Auckland and City Central areas since 1987.
See our flooded carpet drying restoration process—the breakdown between the two types of water damage: primary and secondary damage.
The main flooding damage is the obvious initial flooding. Of course, when the pipe breaks, water runs into the carpets and hard floor. The items and surfaces that become wet with the initial flooding are the primary damage.
The secondary flood water damage is when the flooded water starts to wick up the skirting boards, walls and soaks deep into the sub-floor and hard flooring.
The early moments after the flood are some of the most critical. Here are some flood tips.
In any case, please avoid direct contact when floodwater is contaminated with black water. Next, find the source of the leak and shut it off. You may need to shut off the water at the main exterior valve. Then call your local flood dry carpet service provider or an insurance agent to get an adjuster out immediately if possible.
Likewise, call Steam ‘n’ Dry Flood Drying Auckland Services in West Auckland, North Shore, Hibiscus Coast, Eastern Bays, and South Auckland using powerful truck mounts to extract the water as soon as possible. They can pull the carpet back if necessary or use a surface drying method whereby extracts from the carpet’s surface to below the cushion.
At any rate, if a camera is handy, you should take lots of pictures of the flood water damage before they begin the Flood Restoration Auckland Services. Otherwise, have Steam ‘n’ Dry Flood Restoration Auckland Services take photos of the flooded wet carpet as an independent professional in case of a dispute before the carpet drying service. Immediately remove all furniture and coloured rugs from the flooded areas. Many types of wood and metal furniture feet may not only suffer water damage, but they can also create permanent carpet stains. Remove all smaller items affected.

Finally, attempt to contain the flooding water if possible until Steam ‘n’ Dry Flood Auckland Services arrive with flooded water extraction equipment. Floods on the upper floors of multistory buildings pose special challenges. Check air ducts for flooding water damage. You should hire dehumidifiers, carpet dryers, and air movers from Steam ‘n’ Dry Flood Drying Auckland Services to prevent secondary damage.

The secondary damage is the flood water that occurs in the days and weeks to follow. A large amount of moisture will likely remain in and up the walls and floors, and other items after the emergency extraction are complete. Moisture can wick a metre high up the walls. This will cause extensive mould contamination, which can cause irreparable damage. We strongly recommend that you remove furniture from the wet carpets if the relative humidity is heavy. We can give you the Rh reading with a moisture meter.
Our Steam ‘n’ Dry Flood Auckland Service technicians will perforate your walls and hardwood floors as necessary with your permission. The vent holes allow moisture to escape. We measure moisture in various surfaces using a non-penetrating moisture detection tool. The baseboards, wood floors, and other wood surfaces will also begin to absorb the water, which will cause the wood to bend. Picture frames will split at the joints, baseboards and quarter round moulding will pull off away from the walls. In fact, wood floors will begin to cup. Eventually, all surfaces trapping moisture will grow mould and mildew if the temperature is warm enough. Moisture residue will also create a souring smell throughout the room.
The solution to these problems is ample drying equipment, a safe temperature, and chemicals. You’ll need air handlers to circulate the air. Dehumidifiers are designed to dry out the air. Set the RH for about 27. Apply an application of antimicrobial to prevent the growth of mould or mildew smell and kill bacteria, germs, and viruses. Our Steam ‘n’ Dry Flood Auckland Service technicians will make various determinations for the drying equipment and chemicals needed after the emergency extraction. Available in West Auckland, North Shore, Hibiscus Coast, Eastern Bays and South Auckland. Monitor the drying process faithfully until all surfaces and cavities are safe again.
Of course, Steam ‘n’ Dry Flood Auckland Services are completely capable of restoring your various flooring surfaces once the drying process is over. In fact, many customers who do not use Flood Auckland for emergency flood extraction will contact us later. This for the drying carpet and sub-flooring surfaces because we are specialised in repairs.
