Signs of spring are finally showing in Los Angeles. The weather this winter has been unusually wet. Weather analysts have recorded over 24 inches of rain, and haven’t ruled out even more showers. California also saw a record snowfall this year. Meteorologists have determined that this has been Los Angeles’ 13th wettest rainy season since record-keeping began 146 years ago.
Despite the benefits of balancing the usual drought-like conditions in Southern California, there is a downside to all the precipitation. The amount of moisture experienced has produced record amounts of mud, mold, and mildew.

Powerful Rug Cleaning in Los Angeles
The key to deep cleaning lies in Dave’s powerful truckmount machine. The force of this machine can extract 100 gallons (about half the volume of a large refrigerator) of water rapidly. In addition, this machine’s suctioning power removes even the smallest molecules embedded in carpet fibers.
Dirt and the stains left behind when mud dries are not only unsightly, they damage your carpets and rugs as well. Tiny particles of grit dry out and attach to individual carpet fibers. When the movements of the fibers rub against each other during common usage, the individual fibers are damaged. Over time this can lead to restoration-level cleaning and the need for carpet replacement.
Mold and mildew are the consequence of moisture left in the carpet fibers. Moisture that is repeatedly tracked inside doesn’t allow the carpet to dry thoroughly between exposures. This creates ideal condition for mold to grow from the continued presence of water, spores in dirt, and warmth.
Mildew is a mold but has a distinct appearance. Mildew usually grows across the surface and appears flat. It is typically dark in color and becomes powdery. Mold, on the other hand, can be raised and have a slimy or fuzzy appearance. Mold can be a variety of colors, including yellow, green, or black.
Allergens are microscopic particles originating from plants, animals, or both organic and inorganic materials, and they can cause health issues. Allergy symptoms include sneezing, nasal congestion, itchy red eyes, headache, coughing and wheezing. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report that environmental allergens in the home or office are responsible for many cases of asthma in children and adults.
Pet dander is a common cause of inhalant allergies. During the rainy winter, canine and feline companions spend more time inside. Consequently, their influence is noticeably increased with more soil deposited from walks outside and lingering dander from more time your fur kids spend walking on carpets or sitting on the furniture.
Not only health issues caused by pet dander will improve from a thorough spring cleaning, but also dormant pet odors that reactivate from moisture tracked inside and the humidity associated with rain.
