Carpet mold and fungus can form in any building where there is moisture.
Finding Carpet Mold in Metro Vancouver
Often a water stain on a carpet is a good indicator of a potential carpet mold problem. Dark spots left after floods or spills of water may be mold. Carpets that are left wet or damp for longer than 48 hours will often become moldy. Musty odours coming from a carpet is a good indication of carpet mold.
Assessing Carpet Mold
Visible mold growth on a carpet is usually an indication of an active water leak and can often be difficult to locate the source. ABM Environmental can quickly determine the source of the moisture and make recommendations for solving the problem and removing the mold. First, a thermal imaging camera scans the area of concern. This quickly and accurately locates sources of moisture. We can determine if is just a minor problem that requires localized cleaning or a more serious mold infestation that could be causing extensive air quality problems and health issues.
Testing Mold on Carpets
Surface mold tests will find the species of mold present. Air samples can be taken to determine the levels of mold in the air. ABM Environmental uses state of the art testing equipment to sample the air. Even mold hidden behind carpets can be detected in the air sample. We identify the different types of mold and determine the exact quantity of mold in the air.
