Preventing Musty Odours

Over-wetting carpets can sometimes result in musty odours due to the carpet remaining damp for too long.

If over-wetting occurs your first step should be to try to remove as much moisture as possible by repeating vacuum-only passes.

It’s a good idea to rinse the dome filter of the machine even if it doesn’t look blocked to maximize the machine’s vacuum airflow.

Then allow the carpet to dry thoroughly. If weather permits open windows and doors to increase air circulation or use fans, heat or air conditioning to speed the drying process. Problems are rare so it’s likely you won’t experience them.

Rug Doctor machines have extremely powerful vacuum motors and do an excellent job of removing liquid from carpets. However, if a musty smell develops, allow carpet to completely dry and re-clean using Britex Odour Remover combined in the machine. Britex Odour Remover’s active enzymes will attack and consume the odour at its source. Follow the instructions above to help accelerate drying.
