  1. The first thing you probably want to do is make sure you dont have water leaking into your car. Cleaning it is secondary to determining the source. You dont want the mold to come right back. Do you have a Sun roof? Did you leave your windows down? etc. You can shampoo the carpets in your car the same that you would shampoo them in your house. The difference is that there is no pad underneath the carpet in your car, so if you can clean it good enough, it should take care of it. You can rent a machine with an apholstery tool, or just take it to a full service car wash place and let them do it. Tell them the situation and make sure they have the right tools. Other than that, I would say dont let your kids play in the floorboards of your car.

  2. If you are pregnant have someone else clean it! You don’t want to disturb it too much or you can cause it to colonize in other places of the car. Read the link below for cleaning tips but I STRONGLY recommend that you have the car professionally cleaned. It is worth the expense.
