Prescott Valley AZ – My Area Rug Stinks after I Cleaned It Myself - HELP!

Prescott Valley AZ – My Area Rug Stinks after I Cleaned It Myself - HELP!

It’s okay, I get it – you thought you would save some money by cleaning your rug yourself.  It all went well…until you noticed a horrible odor that was most certainly not there before!  What happened!?

Here’s what may have happened:

Maybe a puppy had an accident on the rug or one of the kids god sick and vomited on the rug.  While you just wanted to clean it yourself, you weren’t successful at removing the source of the odor.  With the added moisture onto the rug, the odor has gotten way worse.

Or maybe you weren’t able to completely extract all the water from the rug when you cleaned it yourself.  The rug didn’t dry fast enough and now there’s a whole new set of problems with musty odors and/or mold growth.

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

If you have cleaned your area rug yourself and are now noticing an odor problem, you should take your rug into a professional rug cleaning service like Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care.  Here, we can do a thorough pre-cleaning inspection and do a full assessment of your area rug.  We’ll let you know what damage, if any, has been done and what corrective measures need to be done for your rug.

Keep in mind that it is possible that irreversible, permanent damage may have already occurred in your rug.  We cannot guarantee we can save your rug completely, HOWEVER we do have the correct tools, cleaning solutions, and skills to give your beloved area rug the best chance at being saved!

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