Case Study

Wet Carpet Odors

Odor Challenge

A disaster remediation team in Indiana had a carpet-cleaning emergency on their hands. After a local cleaning company failed to clean a homeowner’s carpet — due to their solution not drying quickly, resulting in a sour smell permeating throughout the entire home. The team had to properly dry the carpet and eliminate the foul smell.


The team turned to Fresh Wave IAQ Carpet & Upholstery Additive to solve the problem through a carpet extraction process. Whereas this team would have tried several different products to solve the issue, with the liquid solution, they immediately solved the problem with one product.


Fresh Wave IAQ eliminated the carpet odor immediately and permanently. The owner of this firm said: “I have never had a carpet odor eliminating product that worked this well. We have tried for ten years to find a product where we could say, ‘That got it!’
