Eliminate moulds from Carpets

Ah! That smell......The moulds produced on carpets give out a terrible stench. This stench is caused by the spores which the moulds produce. The moulds not only degrades the quality of your carpet but it can cause harmful effects on those living with moulds. Moulds need moisture to grow. You will mostly find moulds growing in the basements, Underneath or behind refrigerators, air-conditioning units and the list goes on.
  • Use goggles, mask for your mouth, and rubber gloves when cleaning moulds. Moulds are toxic and you don’t want them affecting your health.Here are some methods to get rid of the mouldy situation.
  • Hire a professional if your mould is found at the back of your carpet. Hiring a professional would eliminate the effort taken to get rid of it. If the mould is too large and has spread across the entire area then you might consider replacing your carpet. 
  • If the weather permits, ventilate your room. You must open all your windows and doors and let the sunshine in. Use a fan if there are not windows and doors. The air will provide ventilation into the room, thus reducing the odours present. 
  • If your carpet is portable and then take it outside, let the sunshine fall onto your carpet. The sunshine will remove moisture from the carpet and kill the spores present on them.
  • 1 cup of bleach to a bucket of water then spray the carpet with the solution. After about 20 minutes vacuum the dirt and mold out.

  • Train your pet: If you have a dog/ cat, make sure it does not urinate in the house. Start on training your pet as if it’s not trained, you will have to deal with the smell and clean the pet urine stains everyday.
  • Clean the rugs: Thoroughly clean the rugs, pillows with good amount of baking soda along with your laundry detergent to get rid of the smell and stains. Don’t wait too long to clean these items as the smell could be nauseating.
  • Buy a new carpet pad : If you feel like the urine has soaked through your carpet pad, consider replacing it as you would not be able to clean the dry pad.
  • Drench fresh urine stains: If the urine stain is fresh drench it from your carpet as fast as you can. This would help less urine to get seeped in the carpet pad.
  • Black light method: Buying a black light from an online vendor would help you to see the stains in the dark. These stains would glow in the dark thus making it easier to spot them in the dark.
