Hire The Experts To Save And Restore Your Water-Damaged Carpet

Most of us have experienced water leaks and realised the disastrous effect of the leakage. If not attended quickly, you should be dealing with a lot of consequences – damage to carpets, furniture as well as to the health of the occupants.  If water damage has taken its toll on your carpet, turn to the experts to have your carpets back to how you remembered it.


If water damage is minimal, you can tackle the problem yourself. Here are a few tips for cleaning water-damaged carpets.

  1. Remove the moisture as much as possible using a dehumidifier
  2. Suck the water out using a wet hoover
  3. Make sure there is enough air movement and circulation
  4. Sprinkle a bit of baking soda over the carpet if it smells musty and leave it overnight
  5. Vacuum out the baking soda the next day

Don’t find time to do-it-yourself? Why not call the pros of BTM Floorworx who can get the job done quickly and efficiently? Specialised in commercial flooring in Melbourne, we can even help our customers with water damage carpet repairs and restoration.

How Do We Do It?

We use a vacuum extraction system to remove as much water as possible. Once the excess water has been sucked out of your carpet, we use a dehumidifier to dry out the room. Removing moisture restricts the growth of mould and mildew. We also recommend using fans as they can accelerate the carpet drying process.

If your carpets have been quenched with sewage or contaminated flood water, we recommend steam cleaning your carpets. This will help you get rid of dirt, soil, grime and allergens that got embedded into the fibres. Anything doused by flood should be sanitised and deodorised, so our professionals will get your carpets sanitised and deodorised before returning them to you. With the right knowledge, training and equipment, we can even give the most damaged carpet a comprehensive clean.
