Wet carpets, odours and mold

What causes carpet mold?
Carpets are highly retentive materials, often comprised of cotton, wool, or synthetic fibers. Mold growth observed on carpets is likely due to an accumulation of dust that settles into the fibers of the carpet, becoming a viable food source for mold. Additionally, spores from the exterior, called mycoflora, enter into the indoor environment and settle onto carpets undetected. Once mold spores, which are nicely tucked into the fibers of a dust-enhanced carpet, come into contact with water or elevated humidity levels, mold growth can quickly accelerate.

Carpet mold and exposure to it can make you sick, depending on your immune system, age, or pre-determined medical conditions. Seeing as everybody is different, some may not experience any symptoms to carpet mold, while others may get quite sick.
