DON’T GET CARPET WET
There are a few rules for carpet. You should vacuum every day. You should hire a Bloomington carpet cleaning company each year and you should not get carpet wet very often.
It is bad for carpet to be wet for a long period of time. If carpet is wet for too long it can lead to permanent damage or carpet mold. Damage includes deterioration of the carpet pad or fibers.
Your carpet might get wet from poor plumbing in your home. You should routinely audit your plumbing to ensure there are no faulty faucets or leaky pipes. Your carpet might get wet from roof damage or from cracks in your ceiling or windows. You can monitor the condition of your windows and ceiling to ensure there are no problems.
You might also incur water damage due to intense weather or storms or a malfunctioning sump pump. Sometimes the source of water on carpet isn’t as obvious, such as carpet in damp rooms of your home like your basement.
Another common cause for wet carpet is hiring a local carpet cleaning service that uses too much water. This is common in steam cleaning carpet.
Local steam cleaners douse carpet in soap and then attempt to rinse out the soap with gallons and gallons and gallons of water. Too often the steam cleaner leaves both soap and water behind in the carpet.
If the carpet doesn’t dry fast enough it will start to deteriorate the carpet fibers and pad. This can also lead to mold growing in the carpet.
