What to Do with Your Water-Damaged Area Rug – Sedona AZ

What to Do with Your Water-Damaged Area Rug – Sedona AZ

Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott and I’m going to get straight to my point for today – time is the enemy when it comes to area rugs in water damages.  When your rug remains wet for extended periods of time, it is much more likely that permanent damage will occur.

These are just a few of the things that an area rug remains wet for extended periods of time can suffer:

  • Dry rot, leading to cuts, holes, and the shredding of fibers.
  • Dye migration and bleeding.
  • Mold and mildew growth.
  • Discoloration and turning a brown-ish color in areas.
  • If the rug is tufted and has a piece of cloth glued to the back, the risk of delamination skyrockets.

These things may or may not be correctable and may leave your rug with permanent damages.

When it comes to water damages, a homeowner’s #1 concern should always be bacteria!  How did the rug get wet?  Water from a toilet leak may look clean but it is very likely that there are high levels of bacteria.  This will need to be treated as soon as possible.

At Arizona Oriental’s rug washing facility, we have everything needed to disinfect your water-damaged rug at our disposal.  We will arrive at your home and extract the standing water from your rug (if it’s still wet), and then wrap it in a temporary plastic for the transport back to our facility.  Here, we will immediately begin the process of disinfecting and drying your rug.

Remember that time is of the essence!  Don’t wait to call Arizona
