After experiencing water damage, it’s critical your home or business is fully cleaned and sanitized in order to prevent moldy carpet and air ducts. You can’t always see the effects of water damage that occur underneath your carpet or even the white or black mold growing in the threads. You also can’t see the mold spores growing in your HVAC duct system that keeps air flowing throughout your residential or commercial facility.
Typical water damage restoration services only address the water itself and the direct damage it causes. They don’t always address lingering problems that can develop over time. After you experience water damage, it’s critical to remove mold spores from all carpets and air ducts in the building so that mold doesn’t continue to develop. After the mold spores have been removed, mold remediation treatments will help keep any mold from returning.
Our team of professionally trained and experienced duct and carpet cleaners will come to your aid. Whether your ducts and carpet need to be cleaned or replaced, they will analyze your situation and work to get everything back to its pre-damage condition.

We also use professional-grade dehumidifiers and steam cleaners. We will also make sure the mold issue not only disappears from the surface of your carpet but that the issue is resolved underneath as well.
You may be tempted to just let the carpet sit and dry out, but that could lead to mold. You’ll need a wet vac to help extract excess water, open your windows to create air flow, and place high-powered fans near the wet areas. In the case of flooding, you will most likely have to replace the padding underneath the carpeting as well. Drying out wet carpet can be a tedious endeavor and best done by a professional with the expertise and equipment needed to get rid of the water and keep mold from growing in places you can’t see.
At Rapid Restoration, we always strive to save what can be saved. Carpet can absolutely be saved after water damage! In the case of black water flooding and other such extreme scenarios, we will recommend that carpet be replaced. Otherwise, we’ll work hard to get your carpets properly cleaned so they can be salvaged.
