Your Carpet and Mold


Water Damage

Carpet in our homes provide us with something comfortable to walk on and can help to bring a room together. However, when carpets are left uncleaned and neglected for long periods of time, they begin to develop mold. Carpet mold is a complicated and difficult to resolve issue that can cost you countless hours and dollars spent on cleaning products that don’t work.


Many types of mold produce allergens that can cause severe reactions in those who are living in the home. By inhaling or touching mold, you are exposing yourself to its negative side effects. Symptoms of mold exposure include:

Itchy eyes
Runny Nose
Red Eyes
Skin Rash
Asthma Attack

Carpet is a High Risk Material for Mold Growth

Carpet is one of the easiest materials for mold to grow in. Carpeting readily houses all the key elements that mold needs to grow: moisture, organic material, oxygen, and a porous surface. Carpets should be vacuumed often and steam cleaned at regular intervals to ensure that mold is not allowed to grow. Many times you will not see mold on your carpet at all, this is because it is growing underneath of it.

Removing Mold from Carpet

Unfortunately, by the time you have discovered mold growth in your carpet this usually means that it is beyond the point of repair. If a large area of the carpet has been affected by mold growth, then it will need to be replaced. If you are dealing with a large amount of mold, it is best to call a company like Water Damage Zone with professional tools and staff who will inspect every inch of your carpet to determine the best way to restore your home to its original condition.
