Wet Carpet Drying Tips

1. Assess the Damage

Before making any rash decision, take a step back and evaluate the extent of water damage on your carpet. If the rug is only just a little wet, allow drying generally for a few hours. But when the carpet is saturated, use a vacuum to dry it. Understanding the problem will make it easier to choose the most effective remedy.

2. Vacuum The Saturated Areas

In case you find the carpet to be very wet, take out that vacuum in the closet. Dry all the affected areas of the rug. Give attention to those areas significantly affected by flooding or leaking. Take breaks when required, but do not put the vacuum away until the carpet is completely dry.

3. Employ Other Drying Equipment

If using the vacuum is not adequate to dry the carpet or is taking an unusually long time, you can also use electric fans and dehumidifiers—both of these equipment work by sucking out the moisture and allowing it to evaporate. You can, however, skip this task if you do not have the equipment at home. You don’t have to rent or purchase them.

4. Take The Carpet Out to The Sun

Following this, you can now remove the carpet from its tacks to bring it out for air drying. You can leave the carpet in the driveway or the yard allowing the sun and wind to speed up the drying process. Allow the rug to lie flat not to have wrinkles or waves once it dries out. Select a location that has a wide-open space and where nothing blocks the wind and the sunlight.

5. Clean And Then Disinfect

When the carpet is dry, move on to making a thorough inspection of all its parts. Try to find any remaining stain and dirt. If you would like to make sure that the carpet is completely germ-free, apply a deodorising or sanitising solution. It is excellent, especially when the rug submerged in floodwaters which carry many germs and bacteria. It’s essential to disinfect the carpet to avoid diseases among the home’s residents in West Auckland, North Shore, East, South Auckland.
