Flood Restoration, Carpet Drying and Water Damage Restoration in Palmerston North

Seeing a flooded home is difficult, requiring flood restoration in Palmerston North. Water damage from leaks or urban flooding may be inevitable. Has your carpet soaked up water? CleaningPro can revive it - no need for replacement. Get professional carpet cleaning in Palmerston North with CleaningPro. We provide water damage restoration using advanced structural drying to quickly and efficiently dry wet carpets. Hire us and we'll handle the rest, checking progress every 24-48 hours.

Causes and effects of water damage

Water leakage can occur from old pipes, heavy rain, corroded tubing, and faulty water lines - all spelling disaster. You'll see affected areas become soaked and damp, then musty, with discolored walls - a situation no one wants. If water keeps dripping even just 36 hours, it progressively worsens. The longer damage festers and spreads, the higher the chance of irreparable harm becoming reality.

Many hired flood restoration companies take an aggressive approach - tearing down waterlogged walls and structures, ruined carpets, even wooden floors. However, these companies overlook a critical aspect of flood recovery: carpet drying. The space needs drying first, but many skip this as it takes too long.

Why hire CleaningPro to dry your flooded property

  1. CleaningPro only hires IICRC-certified technicians with years of experience fixing homes that have been damaged by floods. 
  2. We are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and can show up for a site inspection within an hour of setting it up.

  4. CleaningPro's highly qualified team of technicians is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for the assessment and diagnosis of damage caused by floods. We bring thermal imaging cameras, thermo-hygrometers, humidity sensors, and hygrometers with us so that we can quickly and accurately assess damage on-site.
  5. Our state-of-the-art, water-claw, truck-mounted Rotovac 360i extractors are the most professional water extraction tools on the market. These machines are designed to remove 91% of the water from affected rugs and carpets and allow the carpet to dry much faster because most of the water is already drawn out.
  6. There are seven flood restoration teams in Palmerston North, which allows us to attend to multiple customer calls at the same time.

Too much moisture can do the following:

The Water Restoration Process:

With thorough inspection of walls, ceilings, floors, we provide complete solutions and restoration for any water or flood-damaged property.

Step 1: Inspection

Only experts can properly assess flood damage to determine extent. Our inspection categorizes the damage to create a restoration plan.

Classification of Damage caused by floodwater

Class 1 pertains to the minimal absorption of water and moisture that is only seeping into "some" parts of the room. (Less than 5% of the total buildings are affected by the flood.

Class 2: Up to 40% of the area may be affected, including the walls and the carpets.

Class 3: More than 40% of the area has been affected. This is one of the most hazardous flood-effect scenarios and is expensive to deal with. The ceilings are usually in the worst condition in such cases.

Class 4: special category damage, where the water damages surfaces like stone, hardwood, and concrete. Such damage requires special drying equipment and techniques for effective restoration.

Categories of Flood Damage

Category 1: water damage that is caused by clean water sources such as cracked or leaking water pipes, malfunctioning flush tanks, etc. It is important to realise that category 1 water damage, if not paid heed to, can transform into categories 2 and 3. You need to get it fixed immediately.

Category 2: This is a serious type of damage caused by grey water that carries detergent leaking from the dishwasher or washing machine spills. Urine contamination by toilet leaks also falls under this category.

Category 3: This is the most severe class of water damage. This kind of leakage includes toxic water being leaked, which can also lead to diseases as it introduces a different kind of bacteria into the environment. This is also called a blackwater flood. Such damage is caused by sewers, natural floods, and other forms of stagnant infectious water that carry dangerous microscopic life forms.

Step 2: Water removal from the property

We prepare custom water removal plans using our powerful vacuum and suction pumps. The type of equipment used is related to the nature of the water damage. Our top priority is to remove water to stop the possible growth of bacteria and fungi.

Step 3: Drying the affected area

After removing and pumping the damaging water from your property, the next step is dehumidification, which dries out any existing moisture. It is an important step in flood and water damage restoration because moisture can lead to excessive growth of rot and mould. The drying process can usually take several days, depending on the nature and extent of the water damage. Our services also include wet carpet drying.

Step 4: Cleaning of household items

Household utensils are easily damaged by water. We make sure that all household items and personal belongings are thoroughly cleaned without any further damage. This disinfection is necessary to ensure the prevention of bacteria thriving on its surface and the formation of fungi. As a standard, we treat all affected personal clothing, curtains, and carpets with antimicrobial chemicals for complete decontamination. We use air purifiers to clean the air of suspended particles and moisture, which improves the air quality in the building.

Step 5: restoration

Damaged drywall, insulation must be replaced - either panels or entire walls. We eliminate all toxins and hazardous substances like lead. If your Palmerston North home is over 25 years old with water damage, get professional help immediately.

Undetected water damage may appear as mold in confined spaces. Act quickly as remediation is difficult.

The clock is ticking

Regardless of damage degree, prompt action is essential. Materials and contaminants must be removed as soon as possible. The EPA recommends disposal within 48 hours as microorganisms reproduce rapidly. Delayed disposal can be hazardous and affect indoor air quality.
