What is the first step I should take when I discover mold?
The first thing you should do when you notice mold is to try to remove the conditions that permit the mold to grow. This means removing the source of the moisture that is causing the mold, including any wet carpets or other porous material such as drywall.
How can I prevent mold growth?
Mold requires moist conditions in order to grow, and once these are established, they can be difficult to remove. It is a good idea to use a dehumidifier if you live in an area that causes excess moisture to collect in your home.
How often should I clean my carpet?
