How do I clean the smell of mold and mildew from my laundry room?
My husband had a stroke 3 years ago and has yet to make any progress (by his own choice.) We have an aide to care for him 8 hours p/d. Once the aide leaves, then I’m forced to be his caregiver. Seeing that he refuses to leave his hospital bed and I’m disabled myself and unable to do anything, he permitted the substitute aide to use our washer and dryer. Of course she had no knowledge on how to use the machine, and left the front loading door opened and flooded my small laundry room. I had the machine checked out and it seems to work fine, but the smell of mold and mildew fills my home and my homeowners insurance has a $1,000 deductible. We both are unable to work and so therefore there’s no income coming into the house. I’ve noticed mildew under the washer, so I have to get someone in to give me an estimate. Though I’m too sick to clean under the machine, is there anyway that I could get the odor out of my house? I did try bleach to clean up the mess as much as possible but the odor still keeps coming back and I’m just too weak to handle this job myself. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Thanks for any advice,Judi
