Cleaning and Prevention of Mold in your Carpets

If you notice mold developing in your boats, car, or RV’s carpets, you should make it a priority to clean it. Mold will spread quickly and is a serious health hazard. You will want to clean it throughly and, if your carpets are removable, the floor below it. Severe molding should warrant the removal, cleaning, and re-installation of the carpet.

What you need:
  • Mold Away (and an empty spray bottle)
  • Stiff Scrub Brush
  • Cloths or Microfiber cloths
  • Dustmask to avoid inhaling spores
How you do it:
  • If carpet is removable, go ahead and do so. If not, determine if the mold infestation warrants cutting and pulling it
  • Start by mixing the Mold Away and spraying the affected area. Let it soak
  • Scrub the affected area with the Scrub Brush. The goal is to loosen the mold and break it away form the carpet or floor.
  • Wipe the area completely clean with the cloths. Let area completely dry
  • Reinstall the carpet.
  • Determine how the mold growth started. Is there a leak? Did you spill something? If there is a problem, fix it. Otherwise the mold will return!
