Preventing Mold on Rugs and Carpets and Avoiding a Mold Removal Service in Hayward, WI

March 18th, 2016

Mold – even the word can cause stress and anxiety for home owners around the country. Nobody wants to deal with mold, not even a little bit. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, mold is more than a few green or black dots on a wall or ceiling that make a room look bad. It can cause throat irritation, skin irritation, wheezing, coughing, and more. It’s definitely not something you want around your family. There are many things you can do to prevent mold in bathrooms and kitchens, but what about rugs and carpets? How do you keep this silent menace at bay? If you keep reading, you will discover the answers.

 The first thing you need to be aware of is the fact that putting carpeting in a basement is a bad idea. Carpeting can hide water damage, and if left alone for too long, mold can develop.

 If you want to install carpet somewhere, make sure the area is completely dry before you start working. If there is any moisture, it will become trapped – that is the last thing you want. You can run a fan near the trouble spot or leave a few windows open. Talk to your carpet installer for additional information.

 Frequent cleaning will also help you prevent mold. If you accidentally spill something, clean it up right away, even if you believe the amount spilled is very small. If a rug is small enough, you can take it outside so it can dry with the help of the sun.
