What about mold growth? All the water does not get “sucked” out because the carpet stays wet.

    First of all, “steam cleaners” do not use steam, they use hot water!
    The idea of “steam cleaning” is to use very hot water to melt the greasy or waxy filth in your carpet so that it can be sucked up. It does work, by the way, if done properly.
    The typical cleaner liquid is a disinfectant and anti-microbial anti-bacteria sterilizer.
    You are correct, the typical problem in some climates is that not all of the water will be sucked up and will not evaporate, leaving a damp or even wet carpet. I do not know about mold forming after using a so-called “steam cleaner”, however, existing mold usually has to be dealt with by replacing the entire carpet and padding, it cannot be re-used.
