Can anyone advise on what to do please.

 

We hired a carpet cleaner at the weekend as living room carpet looked slightly flat and grubby in places.

Spent all afternoon Suday cleaning with a machine hired from tesco. Rug Dr. Used the recommended cleaning solution and followed the instructions to the letter.

Next day carpet looked like new.:-D

Tuesday morning we noticed a strange smell which has steadily got worse. It's like a combination of wet dog and old running shoes!!!:evil:

I've had the heat on and windows open.

I've tried shake and vac and febreeze.

Still no better and getting worse if anything.:-(

 

Any advice would be brilliant.

I hired a carpet cleaner some years ago and remember being left with a strange smell afterwards - fortunately the carpet didn't clean up that well and I replaced it - must be something in the cleaning fluid?

You could also try putting a couple of bowls of BBQ charcoal in the corners of the room.. this draws damp/condensation. Bicarb of soda works equally well as SG suggests. :)

Underlay is usually rubberised stuff glued to felt or sponge, and this is what is causing the 'niff'. I should know as I had it for a couple of days when my fishtank leaked.... replaced fishtank with a slightly smaller one, luckily it didn't have any fish in it.

 

You could also try burning a Yankee candle in the room, lovely smell and they last for hours.... I like Clean Cotton and Fresh Linen by them, Sea Breeze is nice as well.

Great transatlantic carpet cleaning, is it a fiber optic hose? Great book us in for Friday, 2.30pm there are lots of biscuit crumbs that need picking up.

 

I used Stanley Steemer Carpet Cleaner. They were a little expensive, but they did a great job and I think it was worth it!
