It could be an annoying procedure but you don't have to do it everyday, just once a week or something until the smell is improved. I've done it to my car and I've seen a huge improvement after a couple of weeks of doing it. Give it a try
Had this problem with one on my vehicles - Like he said, crank the heat to get rid of the mold build up.
