Cleaning fabric surfaces

We purchased a 2007 Safari Simba 36 pdq last year and realized right away that it had some water issues and a mould and mildew smell. The dealer must have used some kind of spray as we did not smell it when we first looked at it before purchasing. We shampooed the carpets but it did not really solve the problem. We have the coach into a dealer now to go over the coach to find and fix the leak areas and we are having all carpets and flooring replaced but we need to deal with cleaning the fabric sofa, valances and dining chairs before putting any furniture back in. We also have blackout curtains which cannot be dry cleaned but I believe these can be washed by hand and put outside to dry. Can anyone give us some suggestions on what we could use to clean them to eliminate the smell. The furniture is all in good shape no damage or stains we just need to eliminate the odour. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help.

Smile Cleaning fabric furniture

Thank you. I checked the manual on this and it indicated that water shouldn't be used but this sofa and chairs are the same as what you would might have in a house so I couldn't't understand why you couldn't use a machine to clean them. Thanks for responding. We have always been new fifth wheel people and this is the first used unit we have purchased so we have never encountered this problem before. We love being in a motorhome and hope to get rid of this musty smell.

The manual of what the motorhome or the bissel?
The bissel has a button that releases the liquid so you control how much. Or you can just spray the solution with a spray bottle and then vacum it with the unit. Make shure you use hot water becausr it works much better. You can allways use a hair dryer on vent after to blow off the exess if there is any
