urgently need help !!

a week ago i fetch my friend whom decided to spill his bubble tea in my car and apparently it had soaked up the carpet below the car mat and now the whole car has a weird smell now. i have tried cleaning it over and over again but it's not helping. it smells mouldy!!!

Is there any places or recommendation for car wash that will be able to clean the mess out?

I think changing carpet is more practical and economical. Unless you have other problem like insect infesting or spillage on upholstery,then go for steam cleaning..

My recent experience had been with milo, which is worse as stale milo is very smelly.

The MOST important thing to do from my experience had been to treat the source of bad small - the soaked carpet under the mat. No point spending hundreds of dollars on aircon cleaning when the source is still there. You should use clean wet cloth to soak up all the excess bubble tea at the seat rails and mat and carpet. Take out and wash if possible and dry under hot sun. The other solutions like baking soda water overnight and strong refresheners can come in after that. I changed the aircon filter no use. Put pandan leave also no use, think because the source is still there. In fact it is tedious work to remove the dirty water. You will be surprise the carpet still wet and smelly even sfter 3 days if nothing done to dab or wash it away.

If you clean up the source properly, it will take another few days to get rid of majority of the smell. Really lots of work. From then in you will surely bar everyone from drinking in your car haha.

i would spray the carpet with bleach mixed with water

then blow dry with fan constantly and put on top floor of MSCP if possible.

Also can try copious amount of baking soda onto it.

 

i think beats any steam cleaning or what.

Use warm water with a mixture of vinegar and baking soda... Let is soak and scrub it... Then vacuum the baking soda off the carpet. Test in a small area first as to make sure you don't discolour the carpet.

Had issues with my air-con. Went to other place to fix it but end up waste money because the problem occurs again. Went to Joey to see what's the problem and was able to solve it immediately. Very good technical expertise from the mechanics there as well.
