Water Damage and Flood Restoration
Water damage and flood restoration Auckland – wide
We have seen the recent terrible damage caused by flooding in many parts of Auckland. This is obviously a very stressful time for people whose homes have been affected by flood damage so it’s important that people can get their homes treated so they can move back as soon as possible. A fast response by a water damage or flood restoration company is essential to prevent further long-term damage to your home and property.
Our experience and expertise as a leading Auckland carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning company can help you get your home back to a liveable space, faster.
Clearing up after a flood is not just a case of getting the water out of the building. The floor coverings need to have the water extracted before mould and any bacteria that may have become trapped in the carpet fibres. Then you will need to have the carpets dried out thoroughly by using industrial air movers. If your carpets are treated quickly then they can often be saved however, it is common that the underlay may need to be replaced so you will also need to look for a carpet fitter.
Water damage repair
Major flooding is not the only cause of water damage in a home. Far more common is water damage due to flooding by burst pipes, over-flowing baths, broken washing machines and appliances, etc.
While this type of water damage in Auckland doesn’t get the headlines of a major flood, it is far more common. It can also be just as devastating for the home-owner or renter.
The important thing is to call a qualified and proven Auckland carpet cleaner as soon as possible. The faster a water damaged carpet is treated, the greater the chance of saving your carpeting.
Often, it is not just carpets that are damaged by water leaks or flooding. Your lounge furniture can also be damaged and require upholstery cleaning. If there is a leak in an upstairs room dripping water through the ceiling you will need an upholstery cleaner or couch cleaning company.
