WHAT CAUSES CARPET MOLD?

You never want to find mold anywhere in your home. Mold is toxic and dangerous for you and your family. It can lead to respiratory problems and other health conditions if you don’t remove it from your home. The same is for carpet mold.

Do you know what causes carpet mold?

You will find mold in your carpet if the carpet is left wet or damp for too long. You never want your carpet to be saturated or wet for extended periods of time since it can lead to the growth of mold in the fibers or on the pad itself.

You will find mold on basement carpets or in rooms that are dark and humid. Try to get as much circulation and fresh air into those rooms as possible and limit their exposure to moisture too.

You will also see mold on carpet as a result of steam cleaning carpet or cheap carpet cleaning services. This is because those types of carpet cleaning companies use a lot of water to complete their process.

Steam cleaning and carpet cleaning machines require gallons and gallons of water to rinse the soap and shampoo out of carpet during the cleaning process. The problem is that the equipment and the carpet cleaner often don’t remove 100% of the water from the carpet.

If too much water is used or too much water is left behind then the potential for mold growth occurs. You would hate to hire a San Antonio carpet cleaning company in the hopes of having cleaner and healthier carpet and instead have it lead to carpet mold.
