Musty Odor Means Mold: Is It Something More?

A musty odor coming from your carpets means mold is growing on them. However, the smell is not the only concern here. There are several things going on and they are:

Damp wall growing mold
  • Mold spores: The odor actually comes from airborne mold spores. When inhaled for a prolonged time, they can cause lung diseases. They can also complicate existing respiratory conditions like asthma, bronchitis, and more.
  • Health issues: Inhaling mold spores may also induce allergic reactions in many people. Other health effects include sneezing, wheezing, fever, skin rash, throat irritation, sore eyes, and more.
  • Structural damage: The growing mold needs food. Primarily it feeds on the carpet fabrics. But, soon they spread onto the floors & walls nearby, causing structural damage right under your eyes.
  • Indoor air quality: As more spores are released into the air, your indoor air has a higher number of these harmful particles. This makes your indoor air quality poor and intoxicating to those breathing in such conditions.
