I don't work out in the field and I am sure the boys will correct me if I am wrong.......first you better pull up the corners of the carpet to be sure that it is dry underneath.  If it is I would spray down a disinfectant like Benefit to kill the mold before it starts to grow and rapidly it will.

That's the best advise I have to say and hopefully more will follow.

I'll give you the short version. If there's mold growing on the carpet, it took way too long to dry. Get rid of the carpet.

Don't try to save a moldy carpet. There is only one trick:

Throw it out

Cmaster it can be saved especially when the mold is just starting in the corners. What do you do throw everything out when you see mold.

No, just carpet. It's not worth saving when it's been wet for a week. Probably doesn't smell too pretty right now.There are liabilities here.

In all my experiences it takes 5 or more days of seriously wet carpet, before you have visible mold growth. The odour is usually pretty unpleasant by then. Pretty hard to eliminate the odour even if you completely saturate the carpet with biocide.

Looking for some Numbers regarding the Restoration Busniess. Currently own carpet cleaning busniess. We do Resedential and Comercial. How does restoration help my over all busniess? Is there a lot of STaffing?
