|Preventing Carpet Mold |
Shampooing and steam-cleaning the carpets alone won’t kill off mold; when carpets are still damp, mold colonies can redevelop quickly. Keep your carpets mold free by steam-cleaning with a vinegar, alcohol, and cleaning solution mixed with warm water regularly.
| Quick Tips To Prevent Carpet Mold |
• Keep all rooms in the house well ventilated. Use dehumidifiers if necessary to reduce moisture in the air.
• Avoid laying carpet in the bathroom; use tiles or other non-porous materials for bathroom floors.
• Hang bathmats and towels up to dry after each use. Launder these in a hot cycle with a vinegar rinse at least once a week to sanitize them.
• Make sure that damp items are never directly in contact with floors for any length of time – the bottoms of indoor plant pots, for example.
