If your home is invaded by a wet carpet odor, it’s important for you to take action quickly. Not only is the musty smell unpleasant, but the stink coming from your floor means mold and mildew may be beginning to spawn. Once mold is present, the carpet and padding with mold must be cut out and replaced. Getting your carpets deeply cleaned and all moisture extracted keeps you from needing to install new flooring.
Hiding the wet smell merely covers up the problem--it doesn’t provide a solution. The real concern is the growth of mold in the moist carpet. Not only is it hard to dry out your carpets on your own, but the padding underneath it absorbs water like a sponge. Chances are, if the carpet is wet, then the padding will need attention as well.
When the carpet gets wet, many homeowners struggle to dry everything out as soon as possible; pulling back the carpet and setting up large fans can be a major task, and often only the visible water is soaked up--leaving hidden moisture to spawn microbial bacterial growth. If you live in the Columbia SC area, Whitehall Carpet Cleaners can examine your carpets and professionally solve your problem.
