Carpet mold can be annoying, expensive, and even dangerous for your health. To learn if you have it in your home, continue reading the post below.

How to Identify Carpet Mold

  1. First, use your eyes to see if you have a mold problem in your carpets. If you find discoloration, water rings, and/or back/green spots, then it's probable you have carpet mold.
  2. Then, you can use your nose to smell your carpeting. Mold has a pretty distinctive scent of rotten eggs. If you're experiencing nose blindness to your own environment, ask a friend or family member to detect the scent of humidity.
  3. Next, use your hands to touch your carpeting. If you sense that the floor is damp at some point, then you may have carpet mold, since mold needs humidity to thrive.
  4. The high-humidity areas in your house (bathroom, attic, basement, etc.) are more likely to develop mold, so pay close attention to those areas if they have carpeting.
  5. Carpet mold is often the symptom of other issues in your house, which is why you should recall other problems (a flood, a leaky roof or pipe). If you didn't fix them properly, chances are you have carpet mold.
  6. Again, mold needs moisture to develop. That's why you should notice your home's moisture levels. If they're high, it's probable that carpet mold is lurking around.
  7. You can also take note of your family's health. If they're having respiratory problems more often than usual, it may be that they've been in contact with mold for too long.
  8. A surefire way to know if you have carpet mold is to check under the carpet. Unfasten the carpet tacks and peel back the top layer to reveal the padding underneath and see signs of mold.
  9. Finally, use a mold testing kit. Search for it online or at the store, and follow the instructions thoroughly to learn if you have a mold problem in your home.
