Spills, leaks, or anything else that can leave damp spots on your carpet can lead to the growth of mold. If you see or feel any damp areas on your carpet, you should try to find the source of the moisture and address it immediately.
Most of the time, it’s as simple as a spill. However, if there’s an underlying issue, you will need to have it fixed because constant dampness creates the perfect environment for mold to flourish.
Once the source of the wetness is fixed, you’ll need to have your carpet treated to remove any presence of mold. Basement carpet is particularly susceptible to mold growth due to the damp conditions that basements are known for.
