The conservatory is damp, mainly because when it was added on, the doors from the kitchen/dining room were removed so all the steam from cooking goes straight in there and condenses on the windows, which runs down and wets the carpet. We of course will be replacing the doors that were removed to stop the problem, but in the meantime I need a solution for the edges of the carpet which has mould on it. The carpet is not that old and is a heavy duty navy nylon one.
So how to get rid of a combination of white, green and probably black mould?

Hi, I am a carpet cleaner, depending on how long the mould has been present,
You will kill the mould but you may never get rid of the mould stain marks
fro the under side of the Carpet.

1; purchase anti microbial disinfectant, it kills all bacteria, viruses & any living
organisms, so be very careful.
2; remove all food & pets & plants from the room,
3; close off, mask off the room.
4; lift carpet & underlay where it is mouldy, if possible
5; cut out & replace underlay if its too bad
5; put de-humidifyer & fan in room,
6; Spray all mould & suspected mould, both sides of the carpet'
7; spray both sides of mouldy underlay if its not replaced,
8; turn on fan & dehumidifyer & leave room immediately, for 2 hours
9; Vaccume affected area thoroughly,
10 hire red doctor carpet cleaner, use hot water in machine
11;use, or ask for a stain remover with a PH level: 7, (Neutral)
dont get sucked into buying other products.
12;

It can be shifted with an aqua lazer steam mop. I just got one from mighty 10 for $100. It is only marginally behind my dyson as my best mate for keeping housework to a minimum :) It cleans up cat sick and cat poo. cleans my oven, cleans the windows and kills the cat fleas. It disintegrated the window mould and did a sterling job of cleaning out my shed. I wasn't easily convinced to buy one but it has definateley earned its keep[8D]

Vinegar will kill mould too and isn't toxic (plus cheap)
