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 offices after the complete drying of the rest of your property is completed.
Mould is a fungus that can be found both indoors and outdoors. No one knows how many species of mould exist, but estimates range from tens of thousands to even three hundred thousand, or more. Mould spreads and reproduces by creating spores. Spores can survive conditions that are too sunny, hot, cold, dry or wet for mould to grow. When spores are released they can be carried by air or water to new locations and cause new mould growth.
There are often health risks associated with finding mould in your home, including allergy-like respiratory symptoms, skin irritation, cold and flu symptoms, headaches, nausea and mould-induced asthma. It’s important to know the causes of the mould growth before it occurs, so you can work to avoid damage to both your health and your home.
