The most common cause of mold and mildew in rugs is extended dampness. In DFW homes it can be from persistent leaks from a nearby pipe, pet stains, or flash floods in case of major natural disasters.
One of the biggest risks of having a mold-infested rug in your home is the array of serious health diseases it can cause: from respiratory disease to skin problems.
New Area Rug Smells Like Mildew
Area rugs are made of sponge-like materials which makes it very easy for them to retain smells. When the rug is infested with mold it can have a musty odor. When it happens, it's important to get rid of it as soon as possible as it can be indicative of damage done to the rug by excess moisture that has not dried out of it completely.
Outdoor Rug Mildew
Outdoor rugs made up of natural fibers such as jute are very susceptible to mold and mildew.
Thus unlike other natural fibers, outdoor jute rugs should be placed in a covered porch or patio to prevent absorbing moisture. But still, if it does get infected by mold call us to help solve the issue quickly.
Moldy Rug in Basement
A basement is often very dark, humid (thus moisture) and more neglected than other parts of the house. These allow mold and mildew to breed and stay undetected for a longer period of time. Any rug placed in the basement can thus also get mold-infested very easily.
Mildew Bath Rug
Mold is a fungus that thrives in damp environments in the home, especially in areas such as bathtubs, on-shower curtains, and bath rugs. Leaving damp bath rugs on the floor, not regularly cleaning and drying can lead to mold growth.
Mold & Mildew Stains
The first sign of a mildew problem in an oriental rug is usually small circles of dark brown or black which indicates that the rug is an environment with excessive moisture. If the problem is not dealt with, the mildew infestation can spread quickly.
