  • Mold on carpet, hard to get off

    I have black top mold all over my indoor outdoor carpet in my boat. What is the best way to get rid of this and get my carpet back to clean? Can I bleach it or power wash it off? If so how many PSI does anyone recomend for power washing

    Indoor carpet? Is it just the carpet that is inside the cabin or is it indoor grade carpet?

    If it is interior grade carpet...I would approach it as you would the carpet in your house...get a a steam carpet cleaner and some chemicals. I know I have seen various carpet cleaning products for mold removal.

      DT - Bleach is the best for killing the mold, however it can ruin the color. If you have some extra carpet, try putting some full strength bleach on it and let it sit for a while. If the color doesn't run, using bleach is OK. If it runs, find some other cleaner. You can try the Super Clean (Purple stuff), but I would test that as well.

        Have you ever heard of using a power washer on that kind of carpet?

          bleach hell out of it. then rip it out and put a real floor in it. carpet in a boat is like the rug the women put around the toilet, that we piss on in the dark, and then walk in it barefooted.
