Bucks County Carpet & Floor can also reinstall your existing carpet after a flood.  We can pull up the wet carpet, remove the old padding and dry out your carpet and your floor underneath. Once it is dry your carpet can usually be reinstalled over new pad.  This flood remediation tactic for carpet is almost always far less expensive than having brand new carpet installed. Removing the old carpet pad and drying out your floor will prevent the growth of mold and bacteria and will also get rid of that terrible wet carpet smell! However, if your carpet is too damaged to allow for reinstallation, we can also quote you cost for new carpet or flooring. There are some great flooring solutions you can put down in a basement that tends to get wet. Commercial carpet can be glued down, and so can sheet vinyl.  Both these products stand up very well against water.
