Remove Mould From Carpet & Upholstery, KLEVER Makes It Easy
Your carpet can be at high risk for mould growth. Mould only needs moisture, oxygen, a food source, and a porous surface to start growing. Mould spores are found naturally in the air all around us. However, if mould spores land on a damp carpet that has some dust it can feed on, then mold growth will soon follow. In the wet climate of Auckland, carpet provides the perfect breeding ground for mould. Carpet near windows with condensation or below ground in basements is particularly susceptible.

How We Remove Mould From Carpet
In cases of extensive mould growth cleaning will not be possible. If growth has occurred for several months or covers a large area, replacement may be the only option.
Luckily, if you catch the mould early and call us, we can usually remove it and prevent it from spreading any further. Mould removal requires a multi-step approach to tackle each part of the problem.
- Treat the area with non-toxic enzyme based product that ‘eats’ the mould and begins breaking it down. Using a hard bristle scrubber when then work the chemical into the carpet fibers to ensure contact with all mould and further break up the stain.
- If we suspect the mould growth originated from below the carpet, we may also lift the carpet and treat the underside of the weave and the underlay as well. This is how we stop the mould from coming back.
- After 15-20 minutes the enzyme cleaner has finished working its magic and the mould has been broken down to looser particles. It’s now time to extract the broken down mould stain using steam injection and extraction techniques. Steam not only releases stains from the carpet fibres it also kills bacteria and mould.
- Steps 1-3 may need to be repeated several times to get ALL the mould present out of the carpet.
- It’s important that we extract every last drop of moisture possible. Any left over water in the carpet will leave places for the mould to hide and return.
- Finally we use an acid wash and antimicrobial spray to kill anything left behind. This leaves the carpet in an acidic low pH state that prevents re-soiling and inhibits growth of new mould.
