Carpet Mold 101


What, How, Why, Where


Mold is a fungus that is in the air, that grows in humid places and that when it’s fully extended, has a greenish, white appearance to it. It smells, it’s disgusting to look at and, it can be incredibly hazardous for your health! In large quantities, it can cause allergic reactions and respiratory problems, which is why, you don’t want it in your home.

Preventing


- Shoes off! Snowy shoes are wet shoes with result in wet carpets (a.k.a. mold’s playground), so leave them at the door!
- Dehumidify! Mold is prone to grow in places with a lot of humidity, like Fairbanks.
- Detect and eliminate damp areas in your house and in your carpet before the mold starts growing.

Identifying


- Feel the carpet! If it feels damp or it has been wet for a couple of days, it’s probable that mold has started to grow in it.
- Smell the carpet! Mold has a very distinctive smell and if you’ve ever had anything go bad in your kitchen, you know what that is. Smell intently to identify mold in your carpet!
- Look at the carpet! Stains and even fungus may become visible to the naked eye. Be on the look out for greenish, white or black spots. If possible, turn the carpet around and check underneath it for mold growing.

Eliminating


If detected on time, your carpet may still be saved. If you find mold in your carpet or fear that it may be lurking around, a professional deep clean may be in order to completely assure that you don’t have mold problems in your home anymore!

As a side note, be careful! Steam cleaners can make matters worse because they can leave your house damp and produce even more mold.
