Question:

I have a drop ceiling flood nightmare.Help?

The drop ceiling in this house has been damaged for months now and has become a moldy mildewy mess.Can anyone tell me how to clean the room or get the smell out of the carpet?

Answer:

USA Get rid of the affected ceiling tiles. To clean painted walls, use a 10 part water to 1 part bleach solution to wipe down the walls. Use the same solution to clean the metal ceiling grid. Replace ceiling tiles. If the carpet is clean and only smells bad, spread baking soda in the carpet. Mush it in with a sponge mop or your feet. Let it set a few hours. Vacuum it out. You will need to change the vacuum cleaner bags a few times, because the baking soda will clog them up. Most important: Repair the situation that damaged the ceiling!!
