Its been raining a lot recently and my dad's car has developed a mould smell. ok gross i know:rolleyes: The car's pretty well taken care of, we don't eat on the car and wash it weekly + vacuum.

I'm suspecting its the carpet because the smell's pretty strong near the carpet area and the other usual suspect, the aircon, is fine.

I've taken out all the foot mats and wash them but what to do about the carpet left in the car? (which has smell also) Could anyone with similar experience share on how to clean and rid the carpet of that horrible smell. I read that if its mildew is bad for health :thumbsd: Do those off-the-shelf carpet cleaners do the job? (armorall etc)

Thanks in advance
