Protecting your Carpet from Excessive Rainfall

Given the recent cold weather, sadly winter is right on our doorstep.

Also, with the colder months comes the concern of extreme rainfall and the resulting water damage in Melbourne.

A particular problem, especially for older homes, is the water seeping into various room interiors after pooling on the roof and in the attic.

This resulting water can adversely damage not only your carpet or flooring but also your curtains, walls and the roof itself.

Jena’s Carpet Cleaning are the experts in effective water damage carpet cleaning, and we have come up with a few tips to protect your home interior as much as possible from heavy rainfall.

Should you need us, we’re only a phone call away. You can contact us anytime on 1300 887 131; we promise to provide you with the best and most affordable service for water damage restoration in Melbourne.

Maintaining your Roof Spouts

Blocked spouts are a common problem with water pooling on the roof.

Your spouts, or gutters, are the only way for water to be channelled off the roof, minimising the pooling effect.

Things that can block up your roof spouts are dirt, leaves and fallen branches. Ensure your spouts are unblocked at all times.

You can also buy a protective sieve for your gutters that will keep out leaves and branches and only allow water to pass through.

Sealing your Skirting Boards

Skirting boards, apart from providing great visuals for your interior room design, offer protection for the vulnerable gap of the join between your wall and ceiling or floor.

Even if water pooling has occurred, completely sealed skirting boards can either stop or minimise water seeping into the room.

Most of the water that can damage your upholstery or carpet comes from loose skirting boards, as it seeps down the wall and underneath your carpet seams.

Protecting Against Burst Rainwater Pipes

With the increase in rainwater storage tanks across Victoria, a recent problem indicates a shoddy work done in connecting the pipes that link up your spouts to the tank.

During heavy rainfall, the pressure and sheer volume of water passing through the pipe can lead it to come apart or burst, and often the roof shingles cannot cope with this much water.

Make sure they join your PVC pipes with water-resistant sealant.

Also, when you have got your carpets damaged with water, you might as well use steam cleaning to dry and clean the carpets.

I had to fix a carpet to get my bond back. I was a bit scared to give the job to anyone as my bond depended on it. Found couple of companies and got quotes from them, one was crazy expensive and another one very cheap (bit dodgy). Both companies with great rating and reviews on their very good looking websites. Then I found Jena's, we call the emergency number and Vic answer the phone. Next day he was repairing the carpet and it was an absolutely artistic job!!! He was very professional, quick, friendly and very good price.The real estate ask for his details as they were very impressed with their professional job. Thanks Vic, you are an artist!

Have tried another cleaner in Melbourne earlier and it was not up to the required standards. Vic was amazing and did a good job above my expectations. He has a wealth of knowledge and can clean multiple types of stains. Highly recommended.
