Mold can grow on almost any surface throughout your Sterling, VA home - including your carpets. Indoor mold not only leads to an unpleasant, musty smell but can also contribute to respiratory problems and allergic reactions. You can often tell that mold is present in your carpets when you recognize a musty odor or a speckled patch or shape. To prevent mold growth in your carpet at your Sterling, VA residence never install carpet in a high-humidity area, such as a bathroom, and, if necessary, use humidifiers keep your home at a 30 to 60 percent humidity level.
Carpet's natural tendency to soak up moisture and dirt leads to a great challenge when ridding carpet of mold. Oftentimes homeowners must remove carpet entirely to get rid of mold, or if it is caught early enough, can sometimes give the carpet a thorough cleaning instead of removing it entirely. You should consult a professional on the extent of mold growth before acting. Be advised that mold grows in the spaces of porous materials and can keep growing back, making it difficult - or impossible - to remove.
If the carpet's mold growth in your Sterling, VA house is minor enough that it can be taken care of through a thorough cleaning, try the following methods. Always be sure to wear protective eyewear and gloves when dealing with minor carpet mold.
Whichever method you choose, always dry the area completely after cleaning, or the mold will just grow back.

I used Envirotex at one of my largest client properties, and was thoroughly pleased with their performance. Their service was prompt, and their analysis comprehensive. Follow up and responsiveness were also great. The president of the company personally addressed our questions. I would not hesitate to use Envirotex again.
The job was to remove all the old rock-wool insulation and 60-years of dust, bird droppings, and dirt from the attic so that new fiber glass insulation could be installed. Dan's team of workers did a super job in cleaning the attic of all this stuff. I could find nothing remaining between the joist or in corners of the attic. It was so clean that you could have food served on the floor in the attic. They were on-time, completed the work as scheduled, and the work team was professional, organized, and experienced. Highly recommend Envirotex.
