To people living on the coast, mold is an unfortunate but very real fact of life. Often unseen, mold is a huge driving factor for a great number of health problems. It causes everything from sore throat, itchy and runny nose, wheezing, skin irritation, and coughing and sneezing fits. It has been linked to asthma, especially in children or people prone to respiratory illness. It's pretty nasty stuff, and nobody needs it in their home.
Now, you may be asking yourself why a flooring company is bringing up mold on their blog. We offer many flooring products in our showroom, but we also offer recommendations for reputable carpet cleaning services here in Orange County, CA. One of the common ways to get a mold infestation in your home is through shoddy, improper techniques employed during a DIY, or unprofessional carpet cleaning job.
Since mold is most comfortable in moist, dark, unventilated areas, doing the job yourself with a rental machine, or hiring one of Orange County, CA's less reputable carpet cleaning services, can leave lingering moisture in your carpet which promotes the growth of this invasive health risk.
Those machines for rent at your local grocery store may seem attractive because of the price, but you really get what you pay for. Those aren't the first machines a professional carpet cleaning service here in Orange County, CA would choose. They don't have the strength, and functionality required to do a good job and, worst of all, they usually leave moisture behind that soon develops into a mold problem, that can rapidly become a health problem.
In the end, the damage to your floor and health from mold could be far more expensive than if you had just hired a professional carpet cleaning service. Furthermore, the money you save on the labor by renting, is also money you are not spending for expertise regarding the techniques, access to chemicals and the knowledge of their use, that is required to avoid these problems. It could be a costly mistake in more ways than one.
So, if you are looking to avoid this all too common problem, please contact one of our knowledgeable professionals at Bixby Plaza Carpets and let us put you in touch with one of the reputable Orange County, CA carpet cleaning services known for their quality service.
