Rockland—also known as Clarence-Rockland—is a town located 40 km east of Canada's capital. It is a bilingual community with a population of 11,099 (2011). Rockland is growing quickly, as evidenced by the increase in the number of retailers, restaurants and other businesses opening up outlets in the city.
Wet carpets can be a headache. Basically, a wet or damp carpet is an open invitation for black mold because it provides the ideal conditions for mold—moisture and nutrients. As such, you need to dry your carpet (thoroughly!) as soon as possible because mold can start to grow within as little as 24 hours.
If it's been longer than 24-48 hours since your flood occurred and your carpet is still wet, we recommend throwing it out and getting a new one installed. The reason is that, after this amount of time, the moisture may have penetrated beneath the carpet, through to the backing, underpad and sub-floor. Even if the carpet itself looks clean, it could be hiding much more serious problems underneath.
Bottom line: it's better be safe than sorry. Remove your carpet, check out what's going on underneath, and make sure that everything is completely dry before installing a new carpet.
If you need any help, don't hesitate to call and ask one of our certified water damage restoration technicians about our flood restoration services in Rockland.
