Has anyone ever had to deal with mildew on their carpet. We have a new motorhome and at the end of last year we threw a throw pillow on the floor only to pick it up and find the black stuff underneath---Yuk!! We of course threw the pillow away ---but the rug??????

We swept, used dishwashing soap, vinegar and ammonia and still can see the black--help.

Jobaja,

Welcome to the FMCA Forum.

What area of the country are you in? If a humid area, you may need to put a dehumidifer in it. Mold and mildew only grow in high-humidity environments.

If not in a humid area, have you checked for leaks (particularly if this is in only one area)?

We have used bleach and water to kill the mold. I learned that from professionals that had to kill the mold in my commercial building.
