Ever been stuck in a conversation with some a guy at a party who simply can’t enjoy himself, complains a lot and is generally a pretty average human? That’s what we call a ‘wet blanket’. Wet blankets at parties are easy to deal with: you just excuse yourself and find someone worth chatting to. But when it comes to wet carpets, things get a bit trickier. You can’t just get up and walk away – you’ve got to take action. So, here are a few things you can do while you wait for your emergency wet carpet drying service. Keep in mind, these processes are not a substitute for seeking professional help – they’ll just help you deal with wet carpets in the meantime.
Move furniture from the area
Move all your furniture from the affected area and into a dry room. This will prevent any further damage to your belongings and allow you to complete the next step effectively too. Just be careful when moving heavy items. The only thing that sucks more than having a soaking wet carpet is having a soaking wet carpet AND a stuffed lower back.
Soak excess water
The next step while you wait for an emergency wet carpet drying service is to soak up as much water as possible from your carpet. You can use towels, mops, buckets or anything else to absorb the water. If you’ve got a wet and dry vacuum, even better! Use that bad boy till it’s full to the brim, empty it out and repeat.
There are a couple of ways to ventilate the room before your emergency wet carpet drying service comes to the rescue. Ventilating the room will help dry out the carpet and lessen the chance of further damage to the floorboards underneath. You can do this by opening up all the windows in your premises and turning on the ceiling fan. If you don’t have a ceiling fan, use regular stand-up fans.
Make the call
Now, if you haven’t already, it’s time to call in an emergency wet carpet dryer. This is the only way to make sure that the water doesn’t affect any other part of your house. It also prevents mould from growing, which will end up costing you a lot more to deal with if it gets out of hand.
