Water may seem like a harmless substance, yet it can do a lot of damage to a delicate rug. From mold, to colour bleeding and even a weakened, thinned foundation, water can definitely spoil the quality of your prized possession if the damage is not taken care of as soon as possible. As a rug cleaning company, we would advise takingthe rug to a professional cleaner. In the case of water damage from a burst pipe or flood, this can cause the rug to be contaminated from the inside with germs, which will result in further mold and damage (not to mention a dirty rug!).
However, aside from professional
cleaning, there are some steps you can take to protect the rug from severe
damage until it is taken to a rug cleaning facility:
Gently vacuum the rug to suction out some of the water and relocate it to a dry area of the home until you are able to contact a cleaning and restoration company to get the rug professionally restored.
If possible, do not place the rug close to a sink or another water source, since regular exposure to water can cause a good deal of damage over time.
I have been Using Oriental rug cleaning for several years They are great to work with and provide professional and efficient service.Their latest work for me was cleaning a living room carpet,which came up beautifully.I have also used them to clean upholstery, with the same results.
Excellent service with a competitive price! The rug was collected from the property and returned wrapped up and very clean! I was surprised to see the difference professional cleaning makes. The rug looks completely new now!
