How to Remove Odors from an Area Rug You Cleaned Yourself? – Prescott Valley AZ

It’s okay, I get it – thinking that you would save yourself some money you decided to go ahead and clean your area rug yourself.  But now it has a terrible odor and you don’t know what happened or what to do.

Odors that either remain or appear after trying to clean your rug yourself are indicative of one of two things.  Either you were unsuccessful in removing whatever was causing the odor in the first place – either puppy urine accidents or perhaps a sick child vomiting on the area rug.  Another reason odors can become a problem is you were unable to extract properly or the rug did not dry quickly, which creates the issues of musty odors or mold growth, neither of which you want on your rug!

Your rug needs to be evaluated and cleaned by a professional cleaning service like Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care in Prescott AZ.  This should be done as soon as possible to prevent any further damage from happening to your rug.  Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that we can save your rug from damages that have already been caused, however we have the tools, cleaning solutions, and skills needed to give your rug the best chance of being restored.  With a thorough pre-cleaning inspection, Arizona Oriental is able to evaluate the specific needs of your rug and what needs to be done to try to correct the problem.  We clean all types of rugs and have lots of experience in removing unpleasant odors from rugs.  Arizona Oriental is here to help, you so don’t hesitate to give us a call!
