Storm Damaged Home
Flooding Ruins Carpet in Middlefield
During a rain storm this home suffered a flood. The carpet and pad was placed over old flooring which was not thoroughly cleaned. The old tile should have been sealed before a new carpet was laid down. While the flooring sat in water the dyes from the red tiles soaked through the carpet which ruined it.
The good news is that the carpet was going to be replaced anyway. Flood water carries a lot of contaminates and the insurance would have it removed. However, had the flood been from a broken pipe, a clean water source, the carpet could have been saved had it not been for the staining.
