Dry Soaked Carpets to Avoid Health Issues

The Greater Toronto Area has experienced heavy rain this spring and summer. Just recently, the GTA was lashed by a severe rainstorm that dumped several millimetres of rain on the area in a short time frame, and some areas even reported tornados! Flood Services Canada, the leading provider of commercial carpet cleaning in Toronto, has been busy the last few weeks.

If you have carpet in your office or building that has been affected from water damage or a flood, we recommend calling us to extract the water and dry it out immediately. Carpets are one of the first spots that mould and fungi can develop. As the top provider of commercial carpet cleaning in Toronto and the surrounding areas, we recommend having your carpet dried immediately following a flood. And if the carpet has been exposed to sewage or black water, it is absolutely necessary to dispose of the wet carpet.

Mould and fungi can create a variety of health issues, especially if you, your co-workers, or any of your employees suffer from any kind of respiratory ailments, such as asthma. Wet carpets are a breeding ground for mould and fungi if they are not dried quickly and thoroughly. As a provider of commercial carpet cleaning in Toronto, we can be at your workplace rapidly following a flood to remove water from your carpet and dry it out.

If you notice any of your staff developing difficulty breathing, regular infections of the respiratory system, and/or asthma attacks, you may have mould. In fact, if someone who previously did not have asthma starts to develop asthmatic symptoms, this may be a sign that you have mould in the workplace. This is one of the main reasons why it is imperative that you must extract water from the carpet, or replace it in the case of sewage, following a flood.

If you notice your employees coughing, sneezing, or suffering from itchy, watery eyes and frequent headaches following a flood, this may be yet another sign that you have mould in the workplace. Surprisingly, mould can also lead to depression, fatigue, and trouble concentrating. Don’t let this become an issue in your office or building; call us for commercial carpet cleaning in Toronto following water damage or a flood.

We use only the best, most state-of-the-art equipment to dry carpets after a flood. And if you act quickly, you’ll prevent any possible health issues from arising; having employees take time off due to mould-caused illness will cost you money if you’re a business owner, not to mention the high cost of removing and replacing carpets in your office.

If your business has flooded and your carpet is wet, call Flood Services Canada for commercial carpet cleaning in Toronto. Even if you have not experienced a flood and just want to clean your carpets in your office or building because of wear and tear, call us. Your carpets will look like new after our commercial carpet cleaning services.
