24/7 Emergency flooded carpet restoration

Flood Damage Sunshine Coast

We provide fast emergency carpet cleaning due to flooding or other issues. This includes carpet drying on The Sunshine Coast.

Flooding within your home or commercial property requires immediate action. Queensland’s extreme weather conditions can cause flooding as well as washing machine leaks, hot water systems, toilet backflow, broken pipes or damaged plumbing.

It’s best to hire a professional, fully insured and certified carpet drying and restoration company if flooding occurs. Rugs ‘n’ Rats uses the latest technology and applies important knowledge about psychrometry and the science of drying, to restore your valuable assets. Some water damage may not be visible to the naked eye and we can show you this through our moisture readers, then dry carpets and other areas.

Carpet drying prevents mould and other issues from occurring.

Flooded carpet needs immediate attention

If your home or place of business is inundated, the sooner you act and get the water removed, the less chance there will be of irreversible water damage occurring. Moisture is one of the main sources of fungal growth and it’s important to remove moisture and bring it down to an acceptable level as soon as possible.

Our high-powered, water-extracting vacuum equipment comes in handy for those devastating flood emergencies. It provides fast carpet drying when you need it most.

If you need to remove excess water urgently, we can help you clean up quickly. We can remove large amounts of water from any premises including homes to apartments, shops, office blocks, hotels, car parks, schools or churches.


Water extraction and drying

In most cases your home or commercial premises will be dry within 48 to 72hrs. The use of high-speed drying fans, dehumidifiers and specialist anti-microbial agents will prevent mould and bacteria growth. In some circumstances exposing the underlay to drying fans is necessary.

Assess wet carpet condition

Rugs ‘n’ Rats trained team will come immediately to perform an inspection to assess the level of damage. Our specialist equipment will determine how much moisture is trapped in your carpets and help determine the best course of action.


Your carpet may require being lifted and having new underlay placed before re-installing. This process would only be an option if your carpet is salvageable. In your worst case scenario, you would require a full recarpet but we can tell immediately after our initial inspection.

Safety assessment

After our inspection, we will determine if the carpet can be restored. Excessive water can become a health risk fast and have serious knock-on for your home or office. If your carpet can’t be restored then we can assist with the safe removal to ensure the property is safe for habitation.
