Remove Mildew Smell From Carpet

To remove mildew odor from carpet  you must be certain about a few things. First, make sure the carpet is dry. The padding must be dry also. Then shampoo the carpet following the manufacturer's instructions.

Once the carpet is cleaned, allow it to dry thoroughly. In the health care industry we use floor fans to dry the area and we don't allow traffic until it is all dry.

This should eliminate the mildew odor; however, mildew smell in shampooed carpets is also a problem. Often times what our carpet experts have found is that the padding isn't dry and allows the mildew to grow. Or the flooring under the carpet padding is the source of dampness and mildew growth.  In any case, you'll need to dry it up and throw away anything that is ruined. Make sure the moisture problem is cleared up before doing anything else.

You can treat your car the same way. Removing mildew smell in auto carpets requires the same effort. Don't forget you could have a hole in your floor board, or the moisture source is from everyone's feet.
