Clean Boat Carpet
Thoroughly clean boat carpet can be a challenging endeavor if you are not a carpet cleaning professional. Traditional mold and mildew removers, namely Hypochlorite solutions, can cause serious damage to many household surfaces. Hypochlorite solutions can also pose a threat to the user's health if not used properly, because as the solution evaporates it turns into chlorine gas.
As someone who has been in the carpet cleaning business for most of my life, I usually discourage people from do-it-yourself mold and mildew removal. For one thing, to clean boat carpet or moldy carpet in your vessel can be dangerous if you don't know what you're doing.
Another big problem with home remedies is that there is little you can do to prevent the mold and mildew from coming right back on your boat. Hypochlorite solutions do not bind to the surface of the carpet, which means there is nothing to prevent airborne mold and mildew spores from re-infecting carpet after treatment.New technology has made it possible for professional carpet cleaners to remove mold and mildew from carpets without the use of dangerous chlorine products.
You should always be careful when choosing products for cleaning a boat. To give you an idea of how harmful chlorine gas can be: it has been used in concentrated form as a weapon of war. That's not the kind of thing you want lying around the house, especially if you have children or pets. New technology has made it possible for professional carpet cleaners to remove mold and mildew from carpets without the use of dangerous chlorine products. As far as safe boat cleaning products, there are much safe products for cleaning carpet in boats now.
