Mold

This weekend, my little joy, Sammy, opened and emptied 9 20 oz water battles on the floor of his room! I used towels to soak it up from the carpet, and then a wet/dry vac. But this morning I noticed it smelled like mold!!! AHHH! Does anyone have any carpet/mold advice that won't cost me a fortune?? HELP!

Call housing ASAP! I remember reading in the hand book that if you see or smell mold or mildew to call maintenance ASAP and they will take care of it. Good luck!

Sara's advice sounds right to me. Mold is not something you want to mess with. Good luck!

Hey, Cat! It's LoLo. Are you still up in Logan? I'd love to come visit you and the boys. I really love your site. You are one talented girl, but then hey that's the Bussell in you , right? The boys are cute as can be and I'm really proud of Ben. Good luck to him. Love ya, Lo

I think a better word, instead of "mold" is "mildew" -- that's what I meant... it really smells though. I think I will call maintenance though and see what they suggest -- it they answer the phone that is!!

Man, what a mess! It's surprising what kids can figure out how to open. You could try spraying the area with a bunch of Febreeze to get rid of the smell. I'd still call maintenance, though, especially because it'll save you the time and worry of having to do it yourself. :o)

We had the same problem getting a hold of maintenance when we were ready to check out. They claimed that the phone's ringer was off. So, just keep trying, or go take a walk to the office. Good luck! Again LOL!
