- What will you do with my area rugs?
- What is black mould?
- What is that smell?
Rugs damaged by water will be taken to our warehouse for special treatment and care. They will need to be dried carefully to minimize bleeding of colours and discolouration. Your rugs will be dried, cleaned and returned to your home after the complete drying of the rest of your home is completed.
Black mould (Statchybotrys chartarum) is greenish-black in colour and grows in conditions where there is an excessive amount of moisture over a long period of time. Water damage, excessive humidity, water leaks and condensation in small, damp places like bathrooms all create a perfect breeding ground for black mould. Black mould releases microtoxins, a noxious substance that can cause serious health problems for humans and pets.
Usually, if it smells like mould, it is mould. Mould or mildew odours are due to the presence of fungi in the air, inside pipes or walls, or hidden in other parts of your commercial property. Mould is thicker than mildew, so if the smell is particularly strong, that’s a clue that it’s mould and you need to act fast to prevent further growth.
