Mold and mildew is a serious problem for homeowners, as their carpets are feeding grounds for bacteria to grow. Especially in rooms with more moisture than others, mold and mildew is cause for serious concern. Just like you wash your bathroom mats when they start to smell like mold or mildew, you want to have your carpets cleaned and washed to make sure they are mold free. You can’t wash your entire carpet though, at least not with a washer and dryer. You will need to have a professional carpet cleaning service clean your carpets. Even if you just need a section of your carpet cleaned or checked for mold and mildew, you can’t cut that small section out. The most time and cost effective and efficient way to make sure your carpets are, and stay, clean is to hire us at Best Thousand Oaks Carpet Cleaners to clean your carpets for you.
By hiring us, you will ensure that all of the mold and mildew, no matter how severe it is, will be gone and completely eliminated from your carpet. Even if you don’t see or smell it, mold and mildew can be growing in your carpet fibers, and, in more extreme cases, can actually be growing under the floorboards of your carpet. When you have your carpets cleaned, make sure to ask us to check for mold and mildew growth as well, just to be safe. Mold and mildew can be a serious health concern, so you want to make sure that there is none living and growing in your home.
Imagine if your sink or bathroom overflows. That water will seep into your carpet and linger. Even after it dries, some of the liquid may be trapped further down in your carpet fibers. That is what makes your carpet a feeding, and breeding, ground for mold and mildew: moisture. Mold and mildew grow due to moisture in your carpets, and usually that moisture comes from water. It can also come from sweat or other forms of liquid, but water is the main source.
If you take a shower and step onto your carpet with wet feet, you are pushing water into your carpet. If you come inside and take off your wet rain coat, water seeps into your carpet and mold can grow. Making sure to routinely clean your carpets is the best thing you can do to maintain a happy and healthy carpet.
Mold and mildew can cause health damages and respiratory issues if you breathe in the mold and the bacteria. Some can also be dangerous to the touch, so having a professional and skilled technician do it for you is the safest bet. We have all of the tools and equipment to get rid of the mold and mildew safely, without harming ourselves or leaving behind mold that can harm you and your family.
Mold is not always green or blue, like you see on your bread! Mold can blend into your carpet, so you might not even see it or notice that it is there. If you know your carpet has been exposed to excess moisture and dampness, you want to hire Best Thousand Oaks Carpet Cleaners to get rid of all of the moisture and make sure your carpet fibers are completely dry so that there is no chance for mold and mildew to grow. Nobody wants bacteria on their carpets, especially if you have young children who like to roll around and play on the floor! Garage carpets are another breeding ground for mold and bacteria, as well as mildew, because your car can bring in water and other liquids from outside.
