Thank you for using JustAnswer!

I have attached a link to a dry power product that is sprinkled on the carpet and then vacuumed. This product is effective for general cleaning and removing allergens, odor, mold mildew and dirt.

The product can be ordered on-line and delivered to your home.

Feel free to post any follow-up questions you may have.

Oreck has one for allergens and another to disinfect. Which one.? This link i taped on did not work so i looked up oreck.
Expert:  General Jay replied 1 year ago.
You want the one for allergens. We sometimes use this product on carpets in homes that have been affected by microbial growth, but the homeowner does not want to dispose of the carpet.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Allergens one i will get. It will kill fungus and mold my allergies right???
Expert:  General Jay replied 1 year ago.
Yes, that is what the product is designed to do. The age and condition of the carpet will be a factor as well, but this will help with the allergens.

Expert:  General Jay replied 1 year ago.
Not sure I understand what you are referring to. The product I provided to you is designed to combat allergens, mildew and dirt in carpet. It will not restore an old carpet to its new condition, but it will help with allergens related.
