Bonded Carpet can prevent damp carpets that cause asthma
All homeowners know to be wary of damp carpeting. Unpleasant at best, a wet floor covering can also be a potential health threat, as it may soon become a breeding ground for harmful microbial growth and volatile organic compounds. For example, studies have shown that incidences of asthma were more common when people were exposed to this hazard on a regular basis.
While it can be the primary cause of asthma, continued mold exposure may actually make those who already suffer from this condition worse. As a result, asthma sufferers may benefit from taking steps to reduce the chances that mold develops in their home.
However, just because a carpeting appears fine on the surface, this doesn’t mean that mold and mildew aren’t present. According to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI), mold can form:
• In areas of a carpet that appear discolored
• In wet or water-damaged carpet
• On basement carpets that are exposed to damp or humid conditions
• On the padding beneath the carpeting
• When odors or stains in the carpet are present.

At Bonded Carpet, we utilize state-of-the-art, truck-mounted steam cleaning equipment that turns water into moisture at temperatures hot enough to kill bacteria and mold. And since the steam reaches such a high temperature, it evaporates into the air so that saturation issues aren’t compounded.
