How to remove mold from carpet
If you think you have mold in your carpet, you need to determine if what you see is really mold. Although test kits are available to purchase in many big box home improvement stores, understanding what a test result means requires the help of an expert. Therefore an Indoor Environmental Professional (IEP) should be contacted to inspect and test the suspected mold to determine the extent of the damage and what course of action needs to be taken.
After the IEP gets the test results, they can advise you on the extent of the mold problem, the toxicity of the mold, and whether you can handle yourself or hire a certified remediator. If you choose to do it yourself, be smart and make sure you use adequate protection, because the most important thing is your health. Wear a respirator, gloves, goggles, etc.
