What do you do when your carpet is dirty? Call a professional is typically what comes to most peoples mind.

While mold in carpet can occur, those circumstances all have to do with the weather or with lack of knowledge, not with steam cleaning. Rest assured that if Hello Carpets & Floors provides you with steam cleaning Oregon City Oregon services your carpet will not be left with mold.

How is mold prevented from growing on carpet?

1. Hire a Professional Steam Cleaning Company

You’re probably thinking duh Craig ofcourse I’m going to hire a professional. Awesome! Hiring a professional requires asking the right questions to avoid any surprises especially mold.

Questions include: what type of process will they use? What type of equipment? Carpet Cleaning pros usually use much more powerful and sophisticated equipment and cleaning agents. They know what they’re doing, they can use all that extra power without succumbing to the risks that power entails. For example, on heavily soiled carpet a professional might first use a power shampoo system and then follow it with hot water extraction also known as steam cleaning. There is equipment that does both in one pass. Often, the vacuums used in hot water extraction systems are extremely powerful and are mounted on a truck that is parked in front of the home.
