Can I Save Water Damaged Rugs? Prescott Rug Cleaning Expert

Whether or not a flood-damaged rug may be saved depends on the source of the flooding, how long it was wet, and whether it can be cleaned and disinfected effectively.

Hi! Once again, it’s Ruthie from Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott, AZ! It’s also time to go over any rugs that have been severely soaked or have severe water damage.

You can learn more here, but you’re better off calling a rug cleaning professional in Prescott, AZ, to help you save your prized area rug.


How Can I Save a Water Damaged Rug?

When it comes to area rugs and water loss, timing is everything. The longer the rug is damp, the more probable it is to cause lasting damage. Dry rot or color bleed might suffer if rugs are left wet for long periods.

When a piece of fabric is stuck to the back of a tufted rug, the risk of delamination increases when the rug is damp for an extended period.

Another issue is that the rugs look discolored and turn a light brown hue, which may or may not be fixable. Of course, mold growth is a possibility, which grows as the carpet becomes moister.

The most severe problem that rug owners encounter is bacteria. What caused the rug to become wet, and when did it happen?

Although the water from either bathroom leak may appear clean, it could very well contain many bacteria. Bacteria of this type must always be dealt with as soon as feasible.
