Water damage caused by sewage backup – remove the carpeting and padding and discard it. Wash the floor with a detergent solution, rinse well, and allow it to dry thoroughly. If the water damage is in a small area, discard the carpet padding and use a wet/dry vacuum to remove the water from the carpeting.
Hire a professional, ServiceMaster Camden-Charlton, to clean the carpet, or shampoo it yourself. Rent a dehumidifier, and use fans to speed the drying process.
For linoleum, vinyl, or other types of flooring with water damage, use a water extraction vacuum to remove any excess dampness after mopping it. Clean the floor with a mild detergent and water. Turn up the heat in your home, or use a dehumidifier and fans to dry the flooring. Make sure that underneath the flooring is not wet; if it is, you will need to contact a professional, ServiceMaster Camden-Charlton, or dry underneath it yourself to prevent mold growth.
