    Cleaning the CGD carpet using a truck mount, especially if it is over concrete, will mitigate this situation as the fungus is likely feeding on organic material spilled on the carpet surface. The glue may or may not be compromised. I would clean the carpets as an attempt to reduce the odor and recommend that a water damage restoration be called to inspect the affected areas.

    I suspect that the walls and or ceiling is wet. If the water marks were from a previous loss that was not properly dried a small amount of water will reactivate dormant growth and cause or contribute to the odor.

    What Chavez said. However, I remember a great instructor saying one time - in the absence of moisture there is no odor. Synthetic carpet is not the greatest of food sources for mold.

    Call in an Environmental Hygienist and go with his recommendation. They would be the qualified expert and also the liability would swing to them.
