Flood damage is another specialist area where Cleanaway is considered expert.  Again timing is imperative — the longer the water stays the more damage can occur. 

We firstly extract as much water as possible, using wet vacuum cleaners and/or our carpet machines.   After removing any metal or stained wood that can ‘bleed’ into the carpet, we dry the area using air movers and de-humidifiers.   We can measure the moisture levels and adjust the equipment to facilitate the most effective drying cycles.

Normally, we leave carpets in place.  Lifting and drying can cause shrinkage and the added costs of re-installing are avoided.   Once the carpets are dry we need to apply a ‘browning’ treatment to neutralise ‘tide’ marking.  When completely dry, we shampoo and apply anti-microbial treatments to avoid any chance of mould or bacteria starting.
