As leading carpet mould restoration service in the industry, our team gets a lot of questions. And one of the most common queries we receive is whether mould can return after treatment. In order to answer this question, first your need to know what mould is.
What is Mould?
Mould is a form of fungus which grows in warm and damp surroundings; it requires following things to thrive:
- Mould spores
- A constant source of nourishment such as wood, cotton, or drywall
- Humid environment
- Oxygen and moisture
Causes of Mould Infestation
The primary cause of mould infestation in carpet is moisture and dampness. Other factors which contribute to mould growth are:
Poor Air Circulation: –Poor air circulation in rooms is caused by lack of ventilation. It prevents wet carpets from drying quickly, allowing more time for the mould spores to thrive.
Burst or Leaking Pipes: –Water leakages from pipes is one of the biggest sources of mould damage in carpets. We recommend a routine check-up of water mains by plumber to avoid such damage.
Faulty Appliances: –Water based electrical appliances like washing machines and dishwashers can dispose excess water if not functioning properly. You can avoid mould damage by placing them away from your valuable carpets.
Can Carpet Mould Return After Treatment?
Unfortunately, yes. It is possible for carpet mould to come back even after a thorough treatment. While there are a myriad of reasons for carpet mould to return, the most common reason is unresolved moisture problem. Follow the tips given below to avoid recurrence of mould infestation after the treatment procedure:
Have a powerful vacuum cleaner, air mover, or dehumidifier in case you ever need one. They are very effective in drying wet carpets quickly.
Ensure proper circulation of air. Make sure that all rooms are properly ventilated. If you spill some liquid on the carpet then dry it using a wet/dry vacuum cleaner, dehumidifier, or air mover.
Make sure that the valve of water main is working smoothly. If a pipe bursts then the first thing you need to do is turn off the water main valve. So it should be functioning properly.
