Mold under Carpet?

Answer

Mold growth occurs under carpets whenever moisture accumulates under the surface and is not detected. Mold will continue to grow until the carpet is fully moved, the area cleaned and allowed to dry for several days in the open air, and then replaced with new carpet. Mold growth under a thick carpet may be difficult to detect but certain signs can alert homeowners, renters, or facilities managers to the presence of mold under a carpet including a musty smell, a dampness on the surface of the carpet, and rust stains on the bottom side of the carpet. If left untreated, mold under the carpet can cause a hazardous living environment.
