Where do I find oil of cloves to clean musty flooded carpet floors? Someone said to spray this oil of cloves lightly on carpet and that it will help the carpet with the smell(?).

oil of cloves is usually used for toothache remedy. Try the first aid section of your drug store or perhaps a health food store. Oil of cloves may stain full strength so I would dilute it with water. Is the carpet wool? Again, this could be a problem, shrinkage can occur. This will probably just disguise the odor and may have to be reapplied.
You need to kill the mold that is producing the musty smell. Unless you do that it will return with any humidity.
