Mold will always prove to be a problem for homeowners, so it is important to be vigilant to anything that could promote mold growth in your home. Some might not realize that mold can grow in and even underneath your carpet. While some carpets have been treated to prevent this from happening, mold is one of the most resilient organisms on the planet, so it is important to still be careful.

If you spill liquid on your carpet, you should clean it up quickly and thoroughly. It doesn’t take long for mold to spread once it has gained a foothold, and if it is spreading underneath your carpet, you might not be aware of it until it has become a very serious problem.

Besides spills, you should also be careful not to leave wet clothes or towels lying on the carpet. It’s a good practice to hang up anything wet immediately, preferably outside.
