Why do I need my carpet inspected?
To ensure that you don't have any hidden water leaks from a bathroom or leaky pipe in the wall. Moisture seeping into your carpet can be visually undetectable for many months causing mould growth and damaging your carpet beyond repair. By the time any signs such as stains, musty odours, rotten skirting boards and door frames are noticed, your repair costs could double. We also locate any urine stains that may be present, hidden in your carpet and visually undetectable with the naked eye. Mould and bacteria also feed on urine and can cause bad odours if not treated properly. Recently cleaned carpet can mask urine stains and bad odours for a short period of time.
If I'm buying a house, how will it benefit me?
When buying a new home it would be advisable to know before you buy if the carpet is hiding urine, wet with moisture and harbouring mould. It could take months for visual signs to become apparent. Carpet can hide a multitude of sins, don't get caught out! Wouldn't you like to know before you buy that the shower is leaking water under the carpet and that there are numerous urine stains breading health hazards for your family. Knowing before you buy gives you the opportunity to have these problems addressed before you purchase the property.
