Mold is no joke: it is ugly, smelly, and in large quantities, may even cause respiratory issues in some people. Still, you shouldn’t worry! You can help keep mold off your carpet by following the tips mentioned in this post. Hopefully, this way you’ll be able to ward off that pesky little fungus from your flooring for good.

How to Prevent Mold Growth in Your Carpet

Dry Effectively

If a spill, leak, or other mishap leaves your carpet all wet, you should take the necessary measures in order to dry it effectively:
  • Blot some of the moisture off with a clean towel.
  • If possible, expose the carpet’s padding so the air can reach it and dry it up.
  • Open up windows and doors to promote ventilation in the room.
  • Turn on your fans to allow air to flow through and accelerate the process.
  • Avoid using the area until it is completely dry.

Beware of Humidity

If your home has high humidity levels, there are a few things you can do to ensure that mold won’t start growing in your carpet. For example, you can purchase a dehumidifier to decrease the moisture in the air. Also, avoid installing a carpet in extra humid spots (e.g. the bathroom).

Make Smart Padding Choices

There are different types of padding available for your carpet. By choosing a higher quality padding (for example, flat rubber or slab rubber padding), you can prevent mold growth in it and you’ll keep your carpet in great condition for longer.

Use Little Moisture When Cleaning

Some carpet cleaning methods, like steam cleaning, leave your carpet soaking wet for hours or days, exposing it to mold growth. If you use, however, a fast-drying system like Cleanpro’s, you’ll find that your carpet will be good as new in no time without the risk of mold growing on it.
