Tips to Limit Mildew Odors Before a Professional Cleaning

Removing Mildew Smell off Your Rug
Until our technician arrives for a professional cleaning, here is the best way to limit the smell of mildew:
  1. Drying the affected area: If there is lingering water damage in the area, dry out the area as best you can or call a professional water damage mitigation company like All American Rug Cleaning.
  2. Vacuum out the area: As soon as the carpet is completely dry, remove the remaining debris by vacuuming the area. A larger vacuum should be able to pick up more dust.
  3. Apply the vinegar-water mixture to the carpet: Vinegar is a great home remedy for absorbing stubborn odor. To remove mildew and musty smells, apply a mixture of vinegar and water to the affected area of the carpet.
  4. Add lots of baking soda: One of the numerous amazing features of baking soda is that it is one of the best odor neutralizers. You can also trust that it won’t damage the carpet or cause harm to your pets.
  5. Using hydrogen peroxide as an alternative: If you still have mildew and a musty smell on your carpet, try using a mixture of water and hydrogen peroxide. For every part of hydrogen peroxide used, use five parts of water. This is also a great remedy to remove the mold spores and eliminate the musty odor.
  6. Using foam carpet shampoo as an alternative: Add a good amount of the shampoo to the affected area, rubbing it in with a sponge. Then let the shampoo soak in for at least 20 minutes – you do want it to dry. Afterward, vacuum the shampoo and the remaining debris.
