Have you just returned home to soaking wet carpets? Whether due to burst pipes, faulty appliances or heavy rain and extreme weather events, water has the potential to cause serious damage to your carpets.
While contacting a professional carpet cleaner is always recommended, there are some measures you can take in the meantime to reduce long-term damage to your carpets, furniture and belongings.
Homes are filled with electricity. From wiring in walls to power cords and electrical appliances, electricity and water can be a dangerous and deadly mix. Before you enter an area impacted by flooding, make sure that your power is shut off completely. If you suspect mould, dirty water or sewage contamination – particularly from burst pipes or faulty plumbing – wear protective clothing like eye goggles and a face mask to minimise exposure.
If you notice that your carpets are drenched, your belongings and furniture are also at risk of becoming damaged – especially upholstery and fabric goods. As water seeps and spreads quickly, removing your furniture and items off of your carpet can prevent damage extending across to your other possessions.
Also, by removing items off the wet carpet, you’re able to air out and dry the area more effectively. Open windows and doors, add fans and increase ventilation in the space to allow carpets to dry quicker.
Wet carpets are a breeding ground for mould and mildew. If you suspect or identify mould, mildew, spores or fungi while your carpet is wet or when it’s dry, make sure to use a special and targeted cleaning solution. A cleaner will be able to eliminate all dangerous organisms to keep your household and pets safe.
We recommend turning to a professional to ensure that the job is completed comprehensively and with precision.
If not dealt with quickly, water and flooding can take weeks to fully evaporate. Moisture can cause significant damage to wood and walls in just days, resulting in decay, splitting and weakening. While ventilation and dehumidifiers can speed up drying, it’s always best to turn to an expert to avoid significant water damage and the health risks that go with it. Equipped with the equipment and products to restore safety, a professional takes the stress out of soaked carpets.
Carpets are soft, luxurious and comfortable; making them a must-have flooring solution for bedrooms and living spaces. Cosy and gentle on feet, carpets are made up of a variety of soft fibres – that also happen to be very absorbent. If you’ve discovered flooding or excessive water on your carpets, act fast to minimise damage and to restore quality.
Specialising in emergency flooding in Perth, the team at Perth Carpet Cleaning provides responsive and effective carpet drying, sanitising and restoration services for a wide range of carpet types and fibres.

There’s nothing worse than mould and mildew growing on your carpets. Made of absorbent fibres, your carpets can disguise and carry mould caused by excessive moisture damage and flooding. If you’re a victim of flooding, leaks or spills, prevent mould and mildew by acting fast.
After you’ve experienced flooding or a leak, soaked carpets quickly become prone to developing mould if left damp for too long. Time is critical in these circumstances – and can mean the difference of a simple clean or a total replacement. Follow our four steps below to give your carpets the best chance to dry properly and avoid the growth of mould.
Mould can only exist in areas where there is enough moisture. If your carpets are flooded or damp, it’s important to eliminate moisture as best you can. Begin by finding and stopping the source of the moisture or by blocking the area from additional dampness. If you have a wet vacuum on hand, you may be able to suck out a majority of moisture from your carpets. If not, it’s best to contact a professional to quickly remove moisture for you.
Moisture can seep in under furniture and objects, making it hard to fully dry without the removal of furniture. If you leave furniture in areas with soaked carpets, it’s likely that mould will develop and you may end up needing a carpet – and furniture – replacement. Check the furniture and fixtures of your space for moisture impact and remove as many items as you can. Items with some moisture damage may be able to be saved while severely damaged items might be best disposed of.
Key to drying and sanitising a flooded carpet area is adding ventilation and airflow. Good ventilation will allow the carpets to dry faster as well as eliminating odours and moisture from the room. Open windows and doors, turn on fans and even bring in floor fans pointed at the carpets to speed up the drying process.
While there are some measures you can take to clean and dry your own carpets, it can be easy to overlook the severity and damage of your floors. Even after drying, cleaning and deodorising, there may be leftover moisture that turns into mildew and mould. If you notice moisture from a leak or flood on your carpets, contact flood restoration and carpet cleaning professionals. Experts bring along specialised equipment and products to fully clean, dry and sanitise your carpets and restore them as best as possible.

Deciding whether to clean or replace your carpets can be a tough and complex decision. You’ve invested hard-earned money into your carpets, so the idea of having to dispose of them can be frustrating. When it comes to deciding on cleaning or replacing, you need to consider the type of water your carpet is soaked in.
Clean water, like water fresh from the tap, is safe and doesn’t pose any threats. Grey water may be contaminated and will require specialised cleaning methods for proper sanitation. Black water, including sewage, may be deemed uncleanable due to high contamination and the serious risk it poses to you and your family. It’s important to remember that every situation is different, so you should always seek professional advice before moving forward.

Start by turning off the power to avoid appliances and electrical items becoming damaged or unsafe. Then, find the source of the flooding and stop it or remove it if possible. Be sure to move all furniture and belongings off the carpet to minimise damage. If you can, start to fan the area or open windows and doors to allow for ventilation and airflow.

Harmful chemicals aren’t always necessary when it comes to carpet cleaning and stain removal.
As experienced carpet cleaning professionals, Perth Carpet Cleaning has worked on carpets of all types and conditions. Here to give you a few tricks of the trade, discover our top five natural carpet cleaning hacks for fresher and cleaner carpets without nasty chemicals.
Don’t underestimate the power of regular vacuuming when it comes to carpet cleaning. You can keep deeply embedded dirt and dust to a minimum, allowing you to effectively lift off stains with less interference and resistance from dirty carpet fibres.
If you’ve noticed a carpet stain, try cleaning your carpet with a vacuum cleaner on regular intervals. You may find that the stain slowly fades away thanks to the vacuum cleaner picking up dry particles as they emerge to the surface.
A number of natural solutions tend to do the trick when it comes to ridding carpets of different stains. If you’re looking for a quick DIY solution that you can whip up at home, mix one part of vinegar with two parts of water into a spray bottle. Then, spray your stained carpet with the solution and pat it with a towel to begin lifting the stain off.
Mix equal parts vinegar and water to your steam cleaner, adding a few drops of essential oils for a more pleasant smell. Then, spot steam clean affected areas to work the vinegar solution into your stained carpet. Vinegar works wonders for stains and, combined with the heat of a steam cleaner, tends to effectively lift and remove stains from carpets.
Your iron isn’t just for keeping your clothes looking fresh; it can also be carefully used to remove stains on carpets!
If you’re giving the iron method a try, start by vacuuming your carpet to pick up any dry particles and dirt around the stain. Dampen a towel with a solution made of one part of vinegar and two parts of water. Place the damp towel over your stained area and use an iron to heat up the towel. As the iron swoops over the towel, you should find that your stain slowly starts to lift up and absorb into the towel itself. Continue ironing until you’ve lifted as much of the stain as possible.
Create a DIY carpet deodoriser to keep your carpets smelling fresh. Add 10-20 drops of an essential oil, preferably something floral or fruity, with around 450g of baking soda in a glass container. Mix it up well so the oil becomes completely absorbed. When it’s time to deodorise, just shake some of your baking soda mixture onto your carpet, let it sink in for around five minutes then give it a vacuum.
You’ll have fresher smelling carpets in minutes.
For more serious water and flood damage and tough stains, we recommend enlisting the help of professional carpet cleaners to avoid irreversible damage to your carpets.
