Flood and Water Damage Repair

It can be hard to know where to begin after your home or business has suffered water damage. With Absolute Carpet Care on your side, nearly all of your flooring can be repaired and restored. Absolute Carpet Care provides 24/7 water damage emergency services to homes in Fairfax, Arlington, and the greater DC metro area. Our technicians will arrive as soon as possible to prevent mold and mildew problems, as well as structural damage to your home.

Absolute Carpet Care is certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and follows the guidelines they have set to ensure each situation is dealt with appropriately. Our service professionals have the knowledge needed to identify the best cleaning methods and solutions for homeowners.

It is important to assess your water damage situation immediately. If your home has water damage due to flooding, plumbing, or roofing leaks, overflow from sinks or bathtubs, or even high humidity, mildew and mold will begin to develop within 24-48 hours of water exposure.

Five Steps to Preventing Further Water Damage
  1. The first thing you should always do in a water damage situation is to stop the source of water from coming in. Once the source of water is stopped, we can begin to contain the damage.
  2. Next, we’ll extract the carpet and padding as thoroughly as possible and put it into the recovery tank in our truck mount. If necessary, we will remove the padding and tack strip.
  3. After that, we treat all contaminated areas with an antimicrobial solution. This topical treatment will prevent mold and mildew from growing, as well as halt any growth that may have already started.
  4. We then use commercial fans and dehumidifiers to dry the affected area. This equipment will be left running for a minimum of three days to ensure proper drying. Sometimes the carpet may feel dry in less than 3 days, but the baseboards and drywall may still be retaining some moisture
  5. After this visit, our office will contact you the following business day to schedule an appointment to re-install new padding and re-install the carpet. We will also pick up the drying equipment and clean any additional areas that got wet.
"We truly appreciated the speed in which you helped us on the day our water heater gave out! Since I only associated your company with cleaning only, I am sorry to admit I was a bit slow to call and ask if you did “water damage” work. You responded as fast as was possible that day, and did a tremendous job! I was so impressed. There was furniture to move,(some heavy old antiques), wet carpets and padding to clean up, fans set to dry up the moisture, and then come back in three days and finish the job. We were so pleased that I’ve been singing your praises ever since. My neighbors and friends have horror stories to tell of their water damage cleanup, and they listen closely as I tell them about Absolute Carpet, I tell them I’d never have anyone else! We just can’t thank you enough!”
