What Should You Do With an Area Rug That Has Been in a Water Damage? Prescott AZ

Time is the enemy when it comes to area rugs in water damage. The longer a rug remains wet the more likely permanent damage will occur. Rugs that stay wet for extended periods may suffer from dry rot, dye bleed and if it is a tufted rug with a piece of cloth that is glued to the back of the rug, the risk of delamination skyrockets when the rug is wet for extended periods of time. Additionally rugs tend to discolor and turn brownish in color. This may or may not be correctable.

Bacteria should always be the rug owners #1 concern!  How did the rug get wet? Water from a toilet leak, even if it appears to have been clean, may very likely have high levels of bacteria which needs to be treated as soon as possible.

At Arizona Oriental we have procedures to disinfect rugs that have suffered a water damage. We will arrive at your home, if the rug is very wet we will extract the standing water from the rug, then we will wrap the rug in a plastic bag temporarily to transport the rug to our facility where we will immediately begin disinfecting and drying procedures.
