DIY Carpet Cleaning Leaves Carpets Too Wet
There are lots of people that think they can go to the store and buy their own machine to clean their carpets. They also think they can rent a machine and have that used on their carpets. The problem is that these machines are being used by a novice or homeowner that does not have the expertise. You also are using machinery that is not commercial grade. When you use them you are creating moisture on the carpets that is supposed to be warm and should loosen the dirt. Then it goes back over the area to pull up the dirt and the moisture. Most people oversoak the area of the carpet and leave it wet and moist for too long. This is the perfect circumstance for mold to start to grow. You want to make sure that you are using a professional to clean you carpets.
Water Damage Due to Leaking Plumbing
Another area you are going to have a potential build up of moisture is when an appliance has a leak. It can also be from a plumbing pipe or fixture that has a leak. The water can get out and on the carpeted areas. If you do not have these areas remediated properly and by a professional you could end up with mold growing in and under your carpet. When there is mold growing it can be damaging to your health and should not be taken lightly.
