Carpets

Blended Fibers, Hemp, Jute, Natural Fibers, Synthetic Fibers, Wool

  1. When mildew is detected on carpet surfaces (usually you will notice a musty, sour odor in the room), the first step is to STOP its growth. Use a dehumidifier to remove the moisture from the air and carpet. As long as the moisture level is low, mildew will not grow. Open up windows and use fans tr circulate air over the carpet. If mildew growth is on the surface, open draperies to allow sun to shine c the carpet. Even artificial light will help. Usually mildew will first grow on the back of the carpet. If possible, lift up the carpet and circulate air underneath. By attaching the hose to the exhaust of a vacuum cleaner, it can be inserted under the carpet and used to flow air. (Care should be taken when using electrical appliances around a wet carpet to prevent electrical shock.)
  2. It is imperative that the mold spores be killed. If possible, take a rug or small carpet outside where it can be exposed to the direct rays of the sun. Allow 1 or 2 days of direct sunlight to kill the spores. To speed up the action, make a solution of 1 part 3 percent hydrogen peroxide and 5 parts water. Paint this solution on the affected back part of the rug or carpet and place in the sunshine. Now, you are ready to wash the mildew stai n from the carpet.
  3. Run a vacuum attachment over the carpet surface to draw out the mold. Sponge the carpet with thick suds. (Put dishwashing detergent in a bowl of water and swish vigorously to create thick suds. Remove the suds by sponging with a cloth or sponge dampened with clean water. Dry in the sun if possible. If not possible, blot the area thoroughly, removing all excess moisture. Allow to dry thoroughly. (Remember that the mold spores are being drawn into the bag of the vacuum cleaner. If the vacuum has a disposable bag, remove and dispose of it immediately. If not, empty the bag, preferably outdoors, to avoid scattering mold spores in the house.)
  4. If the stains remain, sponge the area using a commercial dry-cleaning solvent.* Blot thoroughly Then apply a Dry Spotter, made by combining 1 part of coconut oil or mineral oil and 8 parts liquid dry· cleaning solvent.' Very gently pat the stain with an absorbent pad dampened with Dry Spotter. Sponge with dry-cleaning solvent.' Blot thoroughly and allow to dry thoroughly.
  5. If stains persist, sponge with water and apply a Wet Spotter, made by combining 1 part glycerin, 1 part white dishwashing detergent, and 8 parts water. To the Wet Spotter, add a few drops of white vinegar. Apply the Wet Spotter to an absorbent pad and sponge the stained area. Sponge with clear water and allow to dry. Excess moisture can be removed by applying an absorbent pad over the wet area and weighing it down with a heavy object, leaving it in place until all moisture is drawn out.
  6. Follow the cleaning process by applying a commercial aersol or dry-packet foam of a mildew retardant. This is especially good to use in mildew-prone areas

*Look for products containing petroleum distillates or hydrocarbon SLlrh as trichloroethane, xylene methylenechloride, methane, benzene and/or naphtha.

Roofs

Aluminum, Galvanized Steel, Asphalt, Fiberglass, Slate, Tile General

A good method to prevent/control growth of mildew/moss on roofs is to eliminate the source of growth. Shade trees planted close to the house cutting off sunlight and creating constant dampness, are a common cause of mildew/moss growth. Removing branches that overhang the house or shade the house will allow air and sunlight to penetrate and dry up the dampness.

  1. Brush off as much of the moss as possible with a stiff brush. For asphalt roofs, keep the mossy area wetted down as you work, so granules on the shingles are not removed. Use one of the following solutions to kill the moss: a. spray on a solution of 1 cup chlorine bleach and 3 cups water, b. spray with a solution made of 1 lb. ammonium sulfate (alum) per 10 gallons of water, c. spray a solution of 5 ounces copper sulfate and 4 gallons water. (This amount will cover a 1,000 sq. ft. area.) When the moss has dried and lost its color, brush off the remainder with a stiff brush. The process you use may have to be repeated (or another one tried) if all the moss is not ki lied or if it grows back.
  2. Roofs with moss can be pressure washed usi ng hot water and fungicides, which remove the moss and retard future growth. Wood shake roofs will need to be re-sealed after the pressure HOMECARE 1 3-34 washing. Commercial firms which do pressure washing may be listed under that heading or under "power washing" in the telephone book yellow pages. Check also under "truck washing and cleaning" or"sandblasting" if you do not find a listing for "pressure washing" or "power washing."

CAUTIONS:

  • To protect shrubbery and plantings around the area where you are working, cover them with polyethylene plastic.
  • Be careful any time a commercial product or combination of cleaning supplies are used.
  • Be sure to store and dispose of products/cans/containers as recommended. Keep out of reach of children.
