|...but I want some advice...the other day (some have heard the story) I had a leak from the upstairs neighbors and the water got on my carpet along with some pee that sam had everywhere and poo and I did a carpet clean (I have one of those bissels) and it never really dried and then it started to smell so so so bad. Over the week the musky smell grew worse and worse and I am 100% sure it's the black mold that I have reoccurring in y bathroom that migrated to my wet carpet cause it's so hot and humid in my room. It's to the point where I feel like I can't breathe in there and when I touch the carpet it's yucky and sticky and so so gross and moist. It feels like a giant petri dish. I tried everything and it's not working.
So here is the plan, I decided to buy a dehumidifier and a hepa filter, and the hepa came in already and it's awesome and so quiet. I also got some borax and tea tree oil. So when the dehumidifier comes I will make a water/borax/tto solution, use a watering pot to really wet the carpet and the wood under with the stuff, let it sit a while, then use the carpet cleaner with just water and runit over a few times, and then run teh machines a few days to dry out teh carpet and catch all the spores with teh hepa.
Good plan? Any other ideas?
And also, the borax solution, should I keep Sam off teh carpet till it's dry? Is it toxic?
