Mold in your carpet floors is a difficult problem to deal with, specially since it usually starts in the underlay, making it hard to detect until after it has caused too much damage. If you notice a musty smell every time you enter a room or a section with any kind of discoloration, it might signify the presence of mold and you should conduct a deeper examination of your carpet. It is vital to take immediate action as soon as mold is detected on your carpet floors. Here are some of the ways to stay ahead and prevent your carpet from
developing a mold problem;
Keep your home ventilated: Easily reduce moisture inside your home by periodically opening windows and doors. You can also use a dehumidifier to decrease humidity indoors. The ideal humidity level, for a mold-free carpet, is 65% or lower.
Clean stains and spills directly: The faster you address, clean and dry any leaks or spills, the better. Mold takes a day or two to develop and grow on wet carpet.
