Carpet mold is a very serious issue because it can cause health problems, particularly for those with asthma, mold allergies, or respiratory ailments. In addition, carpet mold leads to a musty odor which makes the inside of a home unpleasant even for those whose health is unaffected. Carpet mold removal is an involved process which requires a great deal of expertise and experience. The carpet mold removal experts at Oriental Rug Care NY are able to analyze the severity of any carpet mold situation and execute the most appropriate treatment on a case by case basis. Causes Carpet mold is caused by moisture in a carpet. When a carpet is dry, mold spores have nothing to feed off of and remain dormant. When moisture is introduced, mold spores begin to grow and spread. More often than not, the most severe cases of carpet mold begin in one area of the carpet with a slower and less obvious leakage or seepage of water. Severe water damage is usually dried and carpet mold removal treatments are deployed promptly. Thus, mold has little time to take hold of the carpet. When the carpet owner is unaware of the problem, the mold can grow for a long time before the problem becomes obvious. In either case, beginning carpet mold removal processes immediately is extremely important in order to limit damage not only to the carpet, but to the floor, furniture, and even the air quality. The carpet mold removal team at Oriental Rug Care NY are trained and experienced in carpet mold removal processes, as well as in finding the root cause of any mold problem to make sure that the mold cannot return once carpet mold removal treatment has taken place. Severity While identifying the cause of the carpet mold problem is absolutely essential to effective carpet mold removal, identifying the severity of the problem is just as important. In mild to moderate cases of carpet mold removal and prevention of further growth can be accomplished fairly easily.
