Article Summary: 

This article offers essential tips for eliminating musty odors from carpets caused by water damage or moisture. Firstly, address the source of water to prevent further damage. Next, thoroughly dry the carpet using fans and dehumidifiers. Vacuuming the carpet helps remove surface debris and enhances airflow. For deeper cleaning, create a solution of white vinegar and warm water to neutralize odors, or sprinkle baking soda generously and let it sit before vacuuming. Stubborn odors may require treating with hydrogen peroxide, followed by a thorough rinse and drying. Alternatively, using foam carpet shampoo can effectively lift odors and restore freshness.

If these DIY methods do not suffice, consider consulting professionals like PuroClean.
