Before You Call Us…

  • Turn off your electricity and/or gas supplies. Water, electricity, and gas are a dangerous combination!

Believe it or not, washing machines are the single biggest cause of home floods in Australia. We switch on this water-filled machine and get on with the rest of our day. But because most of us don’t sit there watching the full washing cycle, we only realize there’s a flood when our carpets and flooring are drenched.

But why is this so common? Well, it’s because the humble washing machine is a giant vibrating hulk of machinery filled with water. Sooner or later, it’s going to blow, or more commonly the waste pipe pops out of the sink! (yes this is the most common cause of washing machine floods) The damage this can cause can be significant unless you call the experts from the Squeaky Clean Team as soon as possible to start mopping up & getting fully dry.

Our Five-Step Approach

To Washing Machine Flooding Damage Homes

We bring a range of specialist equipment to every job, so we’re ready for every eventuality.

The first thing we’ll do is suck out the excess water from the room. Because Washing machine water flooded the carpet and floor quickly. But this is only the beginning. While your place might look dry, there’s always hidden moisture in carpets and floors after a flood. So, we take a five-step approach to drying you out fully:

1 2 3 4 5

Step 1: Assessment

As soon as our carpet flood damage experts arrive at your place, they’ll begin an urgent assessment of the damage. If your washing machine is upstairs, the water has probably gone through the floor and caused damage to the room below. Water may also have escaped through doorways and into walls.

Step 2: Extract

While this might sound a little technical, it basically means sucking the excess water out of your home. We use both portable extraction machines & the latest truckmount cleaning systems to suck water from saturated carpets & floors. We then move on to the next stage.

Step 3: Air Movers

Circulating air around a flooded room is essential – it’s the key to completing the drying process. That’s why we use strategically placed industrial-strength air blowers to encourage the movement of air around the affected rooms. As the air moves around the room it picks up moisture from the wet surfaces. The moisture in the air is then sucked out using large dehumidifiers.

Step 4: Dehumidify

A flood, particularly one caused by hot washing machine water, causes humidity levels to rise. And when this happens, the excess moisture in the air can get into walls, flooring and furniture — causing mould and long-term structural issues.

To prevents bad odours and mould from developing over time it is crucial that all the unseen moisture in the affected room be removed. We use a series of powerful dehumidifiers to quickly reduce the humidity levels & moisture from a flooded room.

The dehumidifiers suck the moisture out of the air that’s being circulated by the air movers. We measure the moisture in the affected surfaces to make sure they’re dry before we remove the drying equipment.

Step 5: Steam Clean

Once our team of water damage experts is happy that all the moisture has been removed, they’ll get to work on restoring your carpets to their showroom condition. They do this with specialised steam cleaning equipment and dedicated cleaning agents.

Our Flood Damage Services Aren’t Just For Carpet

While our team of flood damage restoration experts spends a lot of time saving carpets flooded by overflowing baths, other surfaces may be affected & we specialize in restoring the following too:


For flooded carpets the faster we act, the greater the chance of saving your carpets from an early grave!

Wood flooring

Flooding to the floor water absorption can cause warping, splits, and irreparable damage.


Water absorption can cause cracks and undermine the strength and stability of concrete.

Laminate flooring

Quick action is crucial. When water permeates the joins between laminate lengths, the damage is often permanent.

Skirting boards and door jambs

Time plus water equals absorption and permanent damage.

Walls and wall cavities

Rising damp, humidity and stagnant flood water can cause permanent damage to walls.


Water travels downwards (blame Sir Isaac Newton!). This can cause catastrophic damage to floors below. And that can lead to serious costs if you live in an apartment complex.
