How To Clean Carpet Flooding (Basic)

First, you need to fix whatever that floods the carpet. It could be from the sink, broken pipe,  plugged toilet that has been continuously flushing or water sprinklers  that set off or could be anything.

Then, move all the objects away from your working area as seen in this pictures

And then, just use the carpet shampooer machine to suck the water in. (Do not use that shampooer just the vacuum feature as seen in the picture below)

After you have sucked the water in, just dry it with a blower or a fan. Then return all the objects that you have moved.

That is it. This is me when I was called to the job. :):)

  2. I have a carpet cleaning business too and I understand the pain of the customer. They want the professional service in cheap price and its our duty to get this done nicely too. I do write about cleaning tips on my website http://www dot rapidservicesgroup dot com

  5. Thanks for the tips. I figured it was pretty simple, but I wanted to be sure I wasn’t missing anything essential. My basement flooded while I was on vacation, and the main thing I’m trying to avoid is mold. If I can get the carpets dry, that will be half the battle.

  6. Carpet Cleaning Tips

    Remove as much water as possible by mopping or sweeping
    Wipe furniture dry and block it up to allow the base to dry
    Lift draperies off the carpets, loop through a coat hanger, and place the hanger on the drapery rod
    Remove wet area rugs or other loose floor coverings
    Open furniture drawers, closet doors, and luggage to enhance drying
    Move photos, paintings, and art objects to a safe, dry location
    Remove wet fabrics and dry them as soon as possible
    Remove damp books from shelves and spread them out to dry
    Do not use ordinary household vacuum to remove water
    Do not use electrical appliances while on wet carpets or wet floors
    Do not go into rooms with standing water if the electricity is still on
    Do not lift tacked down carpeting without professional help. Lifting the carpeting incorrectly could damage the backing
