Mistakes to Avoid After a Flood

The risk of mold and mildew developing after a flood is high, with spores beginning to grow within 24 to 48 hours of water exposure. These growths can cause a variety of health problems, including allergies and respiratory issues. Furthermore, they can weaken carpet fibers, leading to premature wear and tear. Regular inspection and immediate remediation are key to preventing these issues. A professional cleaning service can effectively remove mold and mildew, ensuring a healthy living environment. 

Salvaging vs. Replacing: Making an Informed Decision

In some cases, carpets damaged by clean water can be saved if treated within 24 hours. Factors such as carpet age, material, and water source play a crucial role in determining whether restoration is possible. A professional evaluation can provide a clear picture of the carpet’s condition and help homeowners make an informed decision between restoration and replacement, potentially saving money and preserving the original flooring. 

Implementing Preventative Measures: Looking Ahead

Recovery from a flood offers a critical opportunity to implement preventative measures against future incidents. This can include practical steps such as waterproofing your basement, installing sump pumps, and using water sensors. Such measures can significantly reduce the risk and impact of future water damage, safeguarding our home and belongings.

When you visit Carpet Center’s showroom, our friendly and knowledgeable team will ask about your flooring preferences and budget range. We will then suggest options based on the medium price of your range and ask for your color preference. Our goal is to help you find the perfect flooring solution without pressuring you to overspend.

Select Your Flooring

Once you have narrowed down your flooring options, we will send you home with a sample to see how it looks in your space. We will then schedule a measurement appointment at your home and provide a bid based on the material cost. Our goal is to ensure you are completely satisfied with your flooring selection before we begin installation.


Once you agree to the price and pay the deposit for materials, we will schedule your installation. Our installers will take photos of your furniture placement to ensure it is returned to its original position. Once the job is complete, our installers will clean and dust the floors and put your furniture back according to the photos they took.
