When water damage happens in a room with a carpet?
There are multiple layers involved. Typically there is a carpet, pad, floor and a subfloor.
Here is a special note the carpet pad can NEVER NEVER NEVER be saved. If the work starts in time often the carpet itself can be salvaged. This window is short.
The carpet is pulled up, pad tossed away, wood floor and subfloor drying must commence immediately. Then the carpet can be cleaned and dried.
Please note this is a short window and often ties to what sort of water damaged your carpet. Sewer water intrusions should never tried to be saved.
