Floor Drying is always overlooked by homeowners and even many carpet cleaning operators when they attend your job. If you have a significant amount of seepage or spillage onto your floor coverings I can assure you that your sub-floors are wet, and will remain wet unless they are attended to!
Most often, when there is water damage, not only is the carpet wet or damaged, you will find that the water would have seeped through to the sub-flooring underneath and caused water damage there as well. Whether the flooring is concrete or timber it makes no difference as both need to be thoroughly dried out before you can lower or replace the carpeting. Therefore, the first thing that needs to be done is all water has to be drained out, carpets removed or lifted and then high volume rapid dryers and dehumidifiers are used to create a continuing current of hot air around the affected areas.
Done properly: depending upon the wet area concerned, this can take a few days (sometimes longer for large areas) to give the time to effectively and completely dry the floor covering together with the sub floors.
Not done properly: If your carpets are dried and the floor is left wet, the only way the floor can dry is to have the moisture slowly absorb into your carpets. There are many times I hear of customers calling their carpet cleaning company and complaining of damp mouldy smells in the home up to a week later.
