In the wake of a flood, many homeowners are left to deal with the specter of carpeting and rugs that have been underwater for hours or even days. At first glance, it might seem that all is lost but is that actually the case? Or can carpeting be rescued by professional carpet cleaning from what seems like a watery grave? The answer is… it depends. It’s not like carpets are made from paper after all. Many are fashioned from robust natural and synthetic fibers that are not necessarily affected by being submerged in water. The primary consideration when judging whether or not rugs and carpeting can be saved after a flood is the nature of the flood water itself.
