How to Prevent Damage from Carpet Mold
For homeowners or renters, making sure that the property is in good shape is always a good idea. Whether it’s making sure the trash is taken out or keeping the carpets clean, as seen here, it’s always in one’s best interest to make sure everything is clean.
Anyone who’s ever lived somewhere that has a carpet knows that the potential for messes to be made is always present. Sometimes food or other substances can spill over and damage the carpet, and even water can damage it as well. There are, however, steps that customers can take to make sure water damage is curbed and prevented. One step that can be taken is to simply remove the water as soon as possible. Whether it’s doing it by yourself or contacting our company, simply getting a vacuum and using it to remove the water is the first step to preventing this kind of problem.
Another way to deal with any water damage in the carpet is by using a fan to dry everything out. Our workers know that leaving the fans on for an extended period of time can fix the problem quicker than you expect, and it helps keep some fresh air blowing around.
If there’s no fan available, then our workers here recommend using a dehumidifier to dry the carpet out instead. The purpose of having a dehumidifier around is to remove any of the moisture left in the air once the floor is dried and prevents new damage from occurring.
Steam cleaning is another method to dealing with water damage on carpets. Workers at our company known that steam cleaning the floor essentially sanitizes everything and dries it out even more, to ensure any mold that was there is now gone.
Using some household cleaners on everything can also be beneficial to your home when water damage comes in to play. Workers at our company suggest that sanitizing everything that was touched by the water damage is your best bet at ensuring this doesn’t happen again. They know even using simple soap and water can do the trick.
Lastly, curbing and preventing water damage to carpets should also mean doing a thorough check of all the nearby furniture. Because some homeowners may not be able to check furniture accurately, it’s important to know that our workers can get the job done and will give their input on this task.
