Regular cleaning and maintenance of carpets can be quite challenging. Large amount of dirt and bacteria come in your home daily with your shoes, and despite your best efforts, you won’t be able to prevent these dust, dirt, bacteria and germs from tracking their way into your carpets.
Mould is one of the biggest sources of headache in carpet owners. These microbes thrive in dark and damp conditions, making wet carpeting a perfect environment for them to prosper.
Nevertheless, you should not let few mould spores dampen your mood – or your carpet. In our today’s article we will share three best ways to remove mould from carpets. With our step-by-step guide, you will be able to get rid of mould without any hassle. But first, you need to know what mould actually are and what causes them.
Just because your carpet is infested with mould it doesn’t mean you have to throw it out. Mould is a general occurrence in water damaged carpets which can be easily prevented.
Floods, leaking pipes, overflowing toilets, blown up sewage system, and high humid environment, when left unchecked, cause mould and mildew to prosper in carpet flooring. Check the walls and foundation base for cracks and crevices. Water can flow through even the tiniest of fractures in walls.
High levels of humidity cause mould to spread not only in carpets but also on walls. Furthermore, humid environment also attracts fungus, dust mites, and bed bugs as they all prefer dark and damp atmosphere.
