Q: Our 7 month old son is always congested and we have been using a cool mist humidifier in his room for sleeping. We're renting and unfortunately a couple months into using the humidifier daily I've noticed a funky smell on the carpet! I've used powders that you vacuum up to freshen and kill odor. I've also sprayed Frebreeze as well. I'm nervous it's caused or reawakened a mold issue or something. Has anyone else had this or have suggestions? I'd love to keep the humidifier in his room as it helps him sleep.
