Why Wet Carpet Needs Dealing with Fast
As soon as carpet becomes wet, the clock starts ticking. Acting fast will give you the best chance of fully restoring your carpets, while waiting even a few days can necessitate complete replacement. If you don’t act within 72 hours, here’s what can happen:
- Your carpets will fill with bacteria and eventually grow mould, which can lead to health issues
- Water will wick up the walls and cause costly damage to skirting boards, door jambs and furniture
- If flooding has occurred upstairs, the water will work its way downstairs and cause damage to ceilings and wall cavities
