Mold growing in your Carpets?
When cleaning carpets or upholstery yourself, one of the main contributions to poor health is by over wetting the carpet and/or not drying the carpet fast enough, resulting in wet carpets or upholstery for days or even weeks, remember you could end up with ‘mold growing in carpet’.
When left untreated by a professional for too long your soft furnishings can end up with a fousty smell and even be redeemed for one thing, fit for the bin! Now that’s a costly mistake.
Did you know that when a fibre or fabric is left wet for longer than 72 hours bacteria starts to form living organisms that turn into mould and mildew, which is apart of the fungi family. This bacteria thrives in temperatures at 30 degrees and starts to rapidly reproduce.
With our homes being kept heated in the winter and warm in the summer this temperature is easily consistent to start farming our own breading ground for poor health.
When living around mould and mildew for long periods of time respiratory issues can start to arise.
