Carpets are furniture that can beautify your room, can also be used as a place to play for children or become a gathering place for you with your family in front of the living room TV. However, caring for the carpet can be a hassle because of the potential for mould and dust, therefore it is important to keep the carpet dry and away from damp. Clean the carpet from dust and damp with a vacuum cleaner, at least twice a week. Vacuuming helps get rid of dirt, potential mould and residue from the carpet at regular intervals. However, to get it cleaned thoroughly you need help from commercial carpet cleaning equipment.
For maintaining the cleanliness of the carpet you need to do daily cleaning. To prevent damp or musty smells, try to laying out the carpet and exposing it to the sun all day. Or make sure it gets enough sunlight and great air circulation. Store the rug in a rolled, not folded way to prevent it from becoming damp and exposed to water or food spills. It is advisable to place a bag of silica gel in a carpet roll to keep it dry and not damp. If your house or residence is in a humid area, you should choose a lightweight cotton carpet. When it rains or the weather is humid, cotton rugs will dry faster.
The cause of mould that appears on the carpet is because the carpet is damp. Moist carpet can be caused because of several things such as you put the carpet in a humid area of the room or the carpet is soaked in water so it becomes wet and you don’t dry immediately. Because of some of these things, the carpet becomes damp and wet. The wet carpet will become a den of moulds to feel at home on your carpet. If your carpet is damp, you can immediately dry the carpet using a dryer or you dry it in the hot sun so that the carpet can be dry and not damp anymore.
