As mentioned in previous post, mold is an annoying moisture-loving fungus that can affect your home and your health, which is why you should try your best to keep it in check. If you’d like a few tips you can follow to prevent mold from growing in your precious carpeted flooring, continue reading!

Control the Humidity at Home

Again, mold thrives in humid places, which is why your best bet is to control the humidity levels in your home. For example, you can try:
  • Opening windows and doors to allow ventilation.
  • Drying your bathroom after you take a shower.
  • Not installing a carpet in extra humid spots (such as the basement or bathroom).
  • Investing in a dehumidifier that can improve your home’s air quality.

Dry Your Carpet Appropriately

What do you get when you mix carpets with liquids? If you guessed carpet mold, you’re right! For this reason, if a spill occurs on your carpet, make sure to dry it appropriately:
  • Use a towel (or even your vacuum) to absorb the excess moisture.
  • If possible, expose the padding so the carpet can dry from within too.
  • Turn on your fans so air can flow and circulate through the room.
  • Sprinkle baking soda on your carpet, so it can suck up some of the humidity in it.
  • Allow your carpet to dry completely before using the humid section again.

Consider Investing in Higher Quality Padding

Not all carpet padding is created equal; each has different characteristics, and some are better at enduring the passage of time and the harsh conditions. Higher quality padding, such as flat or slab rubber, requires you to spend more money, but may last you a lot longer and in top shape.

Employ Little Moisture when Cleaning

While it’s true that cleaning and washing your carpet properly requires a certain amount of water, some methods (e.g. steam cleaning) leave your flooring soaked and more prone to mold growth. This is why you should use a fast-drying method that’s effective and without any drawbacks.
