Experience

Kansas Carpet Care has been assisting homeowners and businesses who sustain water damage since 1993. We are certified in water damage restoration by the IICRC. This means our company is qualified to handle emergency water extraction and structure drying.
 
Water is the single most powerful, destructive substance in the indoor environment. In home or office, it ruins carpeting, furniture and fabric, seeps through and under floors, rots wood, actually destroys the structural integrity and the building itself, and even lingering dampness can foster mold, mildew and a plethora of unhealthy microorganism growth.
 
Be Smart, Call A Specialist - Don’t Risk Your Home, Business And Furnishings With Do-It-Yourself Efforts Or With Amateurs Who Do Damage Restoration As A “Sideline”...Too much can go wrong. Using improper drying techniques, temperature and humidity controls or equipment can ruin carpets and furniture, leave hidden dampness in place and cause costly secondary water damage, which can lead to expensive replacement instead of restoration.

What Does a Water Damage Restoration Specialist Do?

1. Responds to emergency calls immediately. We answer our phones live 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
 
2. Instantly acts to stop the spread of water damage. Water damage spreads in all directions, outward in an ever-widening circle, down through materials, even upward by soaking into fabrics. Containment of damage is a most important step to minimizing costs and minimizing the total time required to restore the entire site to its original condition.
 
3. Acts quickly to eliminate safety and health hazards. A water damaged environment puts forth a variety of hazards, from electrical fires and slip-‘n-fall injuries to the spread of contagious viruses and disease.
 
4. Extracts water, damaged materials and debris safely, economically and efficiently. The last thing you want at a water damage site is “amateur” bumbling around creating more damage while trying to remove goods and materials!
 
5. Dries out the entire environment and the materials in the environment, with professional equipment. During the drying process, the site is monitored to maintain a proper balance of temperature and humidity. Proper drying techniques get the job done as quickly as possible without shrinking fabrics, other damage, leaving damp areas, etc.
 
6. Restoration, combining comprehensive cleaning, stain and odor removal, fungus eradication, re-construction and replacement as needed.

What Happens When Water Damage Occurs?

As just MINUTES tick away on the clock..the water contamination spreads in all directions. Paper goods, food on cupboard floors, etc. are all ruined as they absorb the moisture. Stains and dyes released from furniture stain carpet.
 
As HOURS tick away on the clock..Furniture in direct contact with water soaks up water, swells, cracks, delaminates and splits. Fabrics and carpets are stained. Sheetrock swells and comes apart. Odors caused by bacteria develop and infest all materials in the environment. Both the costs and complexity of resolving the damage rise as hours tick away.
 
If DAYS go by without an expert, comprehensive assault on the damage
..door and window casings swell, bow and delaminate. Moisture penetrates into floors and walls, pianos and organs, electronic devices. Metal begins to rust. Mildew and fungus begin growing. Musty and sour odors become permanently integrated with fabric fibers.

What Is "Secondary" Water Damage?

If restoration work is delayed or performed by inadequately trained people, the risk of costly secondary water damage is quite high! Secondary water damage can be hidden to the eye or weeks or months, but can continue to destroy the walls, floors or structural integrity of a building. It can foster microorganism growth unhealthy for humans and attractive to insects and other pests. And, it can also cause many other long-term problems.

Why is Professional Drying & Fast Response So Important?

Most indoor carpet, furniture and building materials such as plywood and drywall, etc. are designed for tolerance of “normal” indoor humidity (around 40% to 60% relative humidity.) A flooded site, however, may have 90% relative humidity for days. Only through use of high velocity air movers, industrial size dehumidifiers and monitoring equipment, properly deployed by knowledgeable professionals, can this humidity be rapidly and safely reduced, substantially reducing damage and need for costly reconstruction or replacements.
