Prescott Area Rug Cleaner. Why Does My Clean Rug Smell?

This happens now and then, and many rug owners believe they are doing the right thing. You thought that washing your area rug yourself would save you money. Everything was in order... Until you noticed a foul odor that wasn't there before!



Hi folks! Ruthie from Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott, AZ!  

Here are a couple of scenarios that could have occurred:

There were dog urine accidents on the rug, or a youngster became ill and vomited on it. You simply intended to clean it yourself, but you could not eliminate the source of the odor. That odor has gotten a lot worse now that the rug has gotten wet.

Maybe you could not fully extract all the water from the rug when you tried to clean it yourself, causing it to dry too slowly. This results in a whole new set of issues, such as musty odors and mold growth.

In either case, these things might be far more destructive to your rug than the source of the odor. It is this time when a Prescott area rug cleaner can come to the rescue.
