Many people are afraid of mold in or under their carpet, especially after the damp winter that California just experienced. Also, for those living in higher altitudes, snowmelt can present a problem if it’s right up against doors that do not have a good seal. But these circumstances all have to do with the weather, not with steam cleaning. Rest assured that if Preferred Carpet Care of Redding steam cleans your carpet, you will not be left with mold.
Why No Mold After Steam Cleaning?
When a professional steam cleans your carpet, in effect the carpet has been sanitized, chiefly by very hot water. As a result, there should be minimal, if any, living organisms in your carpet immediately afterwards. Therefore, mold should not be present in your carpet after a steam cleaning.
Secondly, a carpet that is professionally steam cleaned should not be wet for more than twelve hours. In that amount of time, in California’s climate, your carpet will not mold. The professional technicians at Preferred Carpet Care also do their utmost to insure that your carpet is dry even faster than that, as we know you want to start using your house normally as soon as possible.
So rest assured that steam cleaning is the best way to avoid mold in your carpet. We also help sanitize carpets that are struck with mold, and keep in mind that it’s best to attack a mold problem immediately. If you are having issues with mold in your house, you can consult with Preferred Carpet Care if the carpet is involved, or call a building contractor if you suspect the mold is in the walls or floorboards. Helping you keep your house clean, sanitized and healthy is a primary goal at Preferred Carpet Care of Redding.
