Had a minor flooding issue and ended up soaking half a room’s worth of carpet pretty badly. Got a carpet cleaning guy in here who used a shop vac to suck out some water, lifted up the carpet and tore out the padding. I’m running a blower over the carpet to dry it out tonight and tomorrow he’ll come to replace the padding and staple down the carpet again.
After he left, it occured to me that I forgot to ask how much that would cost, and I have no idea. It was clean water so the carpet is salvagable, only the padding needs to be replaced, and if I had to guess at the square footage of the affected area, I’d say maybe 120 square feet.
Any idea what a reasonable charge would be? I’d at least like to get an idea of whether or not I was being ripped off.
