Steam cleaning: Conduct steam cleaning as it deodorises and sanitises flooring. Especially in case of water-damaged carpet it is advisable to replace the carpet padding since this is a less expensive mean and is a much more convenient option rather than re-carpeting an entire room.

Sanitise walls and baseboards: As the mould is sneaky, it is recommended to wash and sanitise water contaminated walls, hard surfaces and baseboards in order to restrict the spores from getting in and nestling into carpets.

Check furniture: As discussed earlier, since mould is sneaky and stubborn, it is also great at hiding. Inspect underneath the carpet and the furniture for water damage as because mould is formed in those areas which are dark and often overlooked.
