Mold and Carpets
As a mold removal company Eradicator’s mold employees are often faced with removing damaged building materials. Some of these building materials often will be determined unrestorable. With that being the case Eradicator mold will assist clients that may require these items to be removed and disposed of. One such example is carpets and padding. These items often may suffer water damage due to a boiler leak, plumbing pipes being ruptured, sump pump failure…that has flooded the area of concern.
Mold spores live within carpets
Carpets are often a common place to find mold spores. This is due to the nature of carpeting being a hotbed for dust mites, unfortunately this is perfect for mold spores to live in. While mold spores often lay dormant, the right combination of humidity, water intrusion, and lack of light especially within basements can speed the process of abnormal mold growth. Eradicator Mold inspectors highly suggests that quickly attending to the issue is key and that unless the carpeting is being cleaned by a specialist then it should be removed. This is essential to prevent the growth of mold within the home or place of business and ensuring that your investment is not comprised.
Bacteria in carpets from sewage in water
Essential to also keep in mind when deciding if carpet removal within the property is necessary is determining the type of water that has compromised the area of concern. During flooding of the property due to a toilet overflow or natural disaster such as a hurricane, this may result in water intrusion that has sewage. This automatically requires the carpet to be removed from the property as it cannot be restored once compromised. In addition to be removed and discarded of Eradicator personnel will disinfect and sanitize the area of concern to prevent bacteria and viruses from spreading and further compromising the property.
