Carpet smells

cavy1April 5, 2010

We had a musty smell in our carpet after we got them cleaned. The smell got worse over time. Two months later I called in another company to clean the same carpets and the musty smell is still there. The new company even used a deodorizor and it still smells. We decided to tear up the rug and see what it is. Thee are stains on the bottom of the rug (backing) throughout the room. Anyone know what this might be? Cheap carpet? Water stains?

Thanks in advance

Did you buy and install this carpeting? Do you have pets? The reason I ask if that if the carpeting was in place when you bought your home, some "smells" especially those related to pets and be kind of "reactivated" by cleaning.
