I Cleaned My Area Rug and Now It Smells – WHAT CAN I DO!? – Sedona AZ

I Cleaned My Area Rug and Now It Smells – WHAT CAN I DO!? – Sedona AZ

I know what happened – you thought you would save some money by cleaning your area rug yourself.  Everything was fine…until you noticed a horrible odor that definitely wasn’t there before!  Uh-oh!

Here’s what might have happened:

There was some puppy urine accidents on the rug or a child got sick and vomited on the rug.  You just wanted to clean it yourself but were unsuccessful at removing the source of the odor.  Now that the rug has gotten wet, that odor has gotten way worse.

OR when you tried to clean the rug yourself, you were unable to properly extract all the water from the rug so it wasn’t able to dry fast enough.  This creates a whole new set of problems with musty odors and/or mold growth.

Either way, these things can be way more damaging to your rug than the original odor source.

If you’re smelling odors after cleaning your area rug yourself, then you should take your rug into a professional rug cleaning service like Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott AZ to be evaluated and cleaned.  It’s possible that permanent and irreversible damage may have already occurred to your rug, so we cannot guarantee that we can save your rug completely.  HOWEVER, the good news is that we have the correct tools, cleaning solutions, and skills to give your beloved area rug the best chance at being saved.

With Arizona Oriental’s thorough pre-cleaning inspection, we’re able to do a full assessment and evaluate your rug.  We’ll tell you what damage has been done (if any) and also what corrective measures need to be done for your rug.  We clean all kinds of area rugs, too, not just the fine Persian, Oriental, wool, or silk area rugs!   Don’t hesitate to contact us today with any concerns or questions you may have!

Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
