Case study: moldy dog food.
I detailed this minivan in 2006. Wet dog food had turned to mold, generating a nasty odor. The dog food was oily and it was tough getting to the root of the carpet. I first broke up the food with a carpet brush and vacuumed. Repeated this again. Sprayed an all purpose carpet shampoo and allowed it to dwell for 5 minutes. Scrubbed with a stiff carpet brush and extracted with a hot water extractor. Repeated this 3 times and got the results you see in the picture. The extractor was a must have for challenging carpet cleanups. -Robert Keppel: Owner, Applied Colors.
