  • Boat carpet mold removal

    I have to clean pontoon boat carpeting that has severe mold problems. The mold is so heavy that a carpet extractor and chemicals alone won't even come close to removing it. The only way I have found to get the carpet clean is to use a gas powered pressure washer to loosen up the mold, and then use an extractor to remove the moldy water. I use very high pressure (2700 psi) and move in a sweeping motion with the spray. Even after pressure washing/extracting, I sometimes have to hit problem areas a second and even a third time. I'm wondering if there are any chemicals available that would help me. Also any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I believe you are cleaning the best way possible. The only think extra to add is to move up to a heated pressure washer instead of using cold water. To give you an example a heated pressure washer at 1200 psi will out clean a cold unit at 2400 psi. For me, I would use a good quality pressure washing chemical

      Chemical For Mold

      Sporiciden is the chemical for mold. It kills AIDS in one minute, its extremely safe to use and it continues to kill for up to 6 months. You must go through a distrubutor though. If you want some info on it go to i believe. I can ship you some if needed.
