Help!  I Cleaned My Area Rug and Now It Smells! – Prescott AZ

Help!  I Cleaned My Area Rug and Now It Smells! – Prescott AZ

So you went ahead and cleaned your area rug on your own in your home, thinking that you would save a bit of money and once the rug was clean everything would be fine.  Then you noticed a horrible odor that definitely wasn’t there before.

There are a couple of things that could have happened.  Either you were trying to clean your rug because of some puppy urine accidents or a child was suddenly sick and vomited on the rug and you were unsuccessful at removing the source of the odor.  That, or you were not able to extract the water from the rug properly and the rug didn’t dry fast enough and this creates a whole new set of problems that revolve around musty odors and/or mold growth.  These two things can be more damaging than the original smelly spot in the first place.

If you have cleaned your rug and are now smelling odors, your rug needs to be evaluated and cleaned by a professional rug cleaning service like Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care right here in Prescott AZ.  We clean all kinds of rugs – not just the fine Oriental wool and silk rugs!  Unfortunately, permanent and irreversible damage may have already occurred so I cannot guarantee that we can completely save your rug.  HOWEVER, we do have the correct tools, cleaning solutions, and skills to give us the best chances at saving your beloved area rug.
