Though you don’t have to worry about the performance of carpets you have recently installed, mould can start growing below it over time. The chances of mould appearing increase drastically if water sweeps into your house through a broken pipe. They just need a dark space and some moisture to grow. Most water damages occur due to flooding or plumbing leaks. If you want to keep your floor covering protected, make sure you prevent mould from growing below your carpets or get rid of them as soon as you spot them.
