I hate carpet cause it sucks
    #3999042 - 04/01/05 09:33 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Ok i have a closet.  Bout 6'x2' and its carpeted.  Recently a humidifier leaked approximatly 1.5 gallons of water onto the carpet.  so basicly the entire closet is damp.  This happend two days ago and i didnt realize it until last night (currently nothing in the closet to worry about or check on).  So last night i walk into my room and there is a slight stinch which i dont recolect ever smelling before.

So first thing i do is go to the closet and look at my setup. and bam the humidifier is empty and the carpet is wet and stinks.  Its also turning rusty brown.  (I have the industrial short hair tight weave carpet).  The carpet is just barly damp at this point but is definatly wet.

SO i assume this is mold of some sort.  Now considering this is a very special place  :wink: i need to get all that mold out of my carpet. 

This is why i come to you.  What can i use to clean my carpet.  What do you prefer.  Now its not my house so i dont want to rip up the carpet and replace it. 

Please guys help me kill the nasty contams in my carpet!  :mad2:

The first thing I would think of is just get some fans running on it and keep the area ventillated, maybe get ahold of a dehumidifier if you can.

About the mold though, I would just try a normal carpet cleaner, whatever you can get your hands on.

Good luck!

if it was me i would open the door and throw a fan in there to dry it. get a carpet shampooer shampoo carpet fan dry again and then for good measure spray the walls with dilluted bleach and the carpet with lysol.

Do yall think a steam cleaner is necessary? I would have to go rent one but i would rather spend 30bucks on a rental then losing a crop.

No. The mold will die when the carpet is dry. (sorry, didn't mean to sound like johnny cochran)

You could also put some damp rid down, then cover it with plastic. Let it absorb the water if it's a lot. A fan and heater will probably do the trick though. Get rid of whatever shitty humidifier puked all over the floor.

it wil die down but it won't be gone and could certainly become an issue if the area were used for fruiting in the future.

while the area is still damp i would liberally apply isopropyl. then use fans to dry it out. once dry i would cleanse all surfaces with a bleach/vinegar mix and fan dry again. as a final measure I would apply lysol to the carpet inside and around the outside of the closet.
i would also find something to place over the carpet to prevent such problems in the future. whatever you use make sure it is elevated off the carpet with blocks or eggcrate or something. a plastic drip pan sitting flat on carpet would be a great way to get that mold revitalised.

All the above suggestions sound fine.

Pour some Iso-alcohol all into that bitch while it's wet.

Let it dry

shampoo/steamclean, or both maybe putting iso or h2o2 into the solution

spray mad lysol everywhere!

and a little more iso in the carpet probably couldn't hurt...

Thanks guys you have really helped. :thanx:  I went and rented one of those rug doctor carpet cleaners from giant.
Good thought about elevating the fruiting chamber (3 tier greenhouse). 
I Did a drop kick of the humidifier off a balcony around lunch time. That was awesome by the way. (anyone say one thousand pieces).  :chainsaw: :headbanger:

I will definatly put ISO everywhere (good Idea).  But the H202 will bleach the carpet i think.

I bought 2 huge cans of lysol for 10 bucks.  But note to everyone who hasnt sprayed painted walls with lysol before IT WILL EAT THE PAINT.  Atleast it ate the paint on my wall, now i got like zebra stripes and drip marks on my wall (least its in the closet. 

I guess thats why i should wipe down surfaces with bleach vinigar instead of lysol eh?

:thanx:
