Can a Wet Carpet & Drywall be Rescued?
If actions get taken immediately, a flooding situation occurs, wet carpet and drywall can get rescued. The problem isn’t the amount of water that has gotten soaked, but what kind of water has entered and how long.
There are three categories of water. If the water damage is from category 3 (also known as black water), it might need to be replaced or cleaned by a certified anti-microbial specialist. Also, if the water has been in contact with the ground, the damage is treated as category 3.
For category 2 (unsanitary water), water overflow from a clean water source, the health risk is lower, and thorough cleaning and disinfection might be enough.
For category 1 (water from a drinking water supply, pipe, or roof leak), the carpet and drywall can get salvaged. However, this will depend on how quickly the drying was completed and the off chance that there’s been no mold growth.
Wall-to-wall carpets in trend these days are made from synthetic fibers. The primary issue would be bacteria and mold growth. This can be taken care of by thorough drying. However, it would have to get done within 24 to 48 hours.
The material used in the construction of interior walls is a set of different layers. While it might look solid, it’s more porous than bare wood.
Wet drywalls are quick to swell. This type supports the growth of mold. To salvage the damp drywall, it would need to be dried as soon as possible.
