Diligent carpet cleaning should relieve your fears of toxic mold creeping into your home… right?
If you’re cleaning carpet on a humid day, it can heighten your chance of inviting mold into your home – and giving mold an eviction notice isn’t so easy.
Avoid carpet cleaning during humid days to prevent mold. Often, proper ventilation and air circulation prevents mold growth. However, during the summers, the indoor air becomes rich in moisture when you open the windows and air inlets. This can cause the carpet’s fabric to stretch out and expand in size and volume.
