Schedule An Appointment
Yesterday morning around 6:45 I discovered I had water in my basement and I called Sams Carpet Cleaning. To be honest, I didn’t know they did flood recovery and thought they only did carpets, but by 7:45 am, a young man was here and the water removal process was underway! Their entire team has been wonderful to work with personally and with my insurance company. The carpet is still drying out and the sorting and trashing of wet stuff will continue, but Sams has been awesome! Put their number in your phone just in case you have a morning like mine … hope you don’t.

Quick Action Safe Water Clean-Up TIPS
- SAFETY FIRST – Use caution when entering a flooded area. Make sure electric power is off and the structure is sound before entering.
- PROTECT YOURSELF – Wear protective clothing like long pants, eye protection, and rubber gloves. If you can and weather permitting, open windows for air flow.
- REMOVAL OF PERSONAL ITEMS – Keep what can be saved and throw away ones that cannot. In a sewage loss items that are porous that have absorbed the flood water shouldn’t be restored. Wipe down the items with a clean cloth right away so no more damage may occur. For instance, removing furniture drawers to help air flow and wiping down excess water throughout.
- UNREMOVABLE ITEMS – Any items that cannot be removed, try to place something to protect the items like foam blocks or plastic between them and the wet flooring.
- CLEANING FABRICS/CLOTHING – Can be machine washed or dry cleaned and it needs to happen right away. Check labels for cleaning instructions and if you can use hot water, use it.
- DRYING STRUCTURE – Requires airflow and proper dehumidification in conjunction with the possible removal of drywall, baseboards, tack strips, carpet, pad, etc. This is when you will need a professional water restoration specialist. They can determine the level of damage, recommend a drying plan, and advise you on what can be saved and what cannot.
- PREVENTING MOLD CONTAMINATION – Although it may take a few days to appear, mold thrives in a moist environment. The quicker you remove waterthe better chances the mold will not appear. Keep air moving and maintain as moderate temperatures as possible. A professional water restoration specialist will make sure air flow and drying methods are used to confirm drying is complete.
- AIR FLOW – Air movement is so important as stated before. Turning on air conditioners in the hot summers and heaters in the cold winters can assist in the drying process.
- REBUILDING – It takes time to remove moisture from a home or business. Reconstruction cannot proceed until moisture levels have reached pre-loss conditions. Professionals have moisture meters to inspect the area and confirm proper drying before reconstruction.
