Flooded Areas – Flooded Basements – Martin’s Flooring, Inc. can help!
First you should contact your insurance company. Please keep in mind most homeowners policies do not cover flooding unless you have specific flood insurance.
Depending on the severity, you will need to get a restoration company involved if the water is in the walls, etc.
Martin’s Flooring has truck-mounted units that can do water extraction (vacuuming up the water).
Martin’s Floor Care Professionals are available to do the water extraction, pull the carpet back, and remove and dispose of the carpet pad. For best results, this should be done within 48-72 hours after the area was flooded.
The carpet will need to be pulled back on the edges and the padding removed and disposed of.
You will need dehumidifiers and air movers to help the carpet dry out, this will often take 3-5 days.
When dry, Martin’s can come out and install new padding, reinstall the carpet, and then professionally clean the carpet.
