[DML] Re: Musty odor



Hey Byron,

I'd check with DMCH again on those carpets as I recently talked with 
James and he said that they have new carpet to replace any carpeting 
in the D.  I was recently asking him about re-dying the carpets and 
I can't seem to find anyone who has done this.  Anyone out there???  
I figure I might replace my floor carpets as they stink as well from 
the car sitting outside too long.  

If that doesn't work, I know some people have replaced the padding 
which you should be able to pickup from Lowe's or somewhere.  Then 
just wet-vac the carpets and spray lots of Febreeze? lol.  

Anyways, let me know what happens if you try to clean them as I will 
have to do the same sometime in the near future.

Thanks,

Brandon
