It has been raining in Los Angeles since few days ago. We have received several rugs which were damaged by water for cleaning and color restoration. Some of these rugs were left in the garages or parking spaces. Some were in homes with floods.
First, we have to extract the water to prevent the rug to get mold or color run and bleeding. Then we have to wash the rug with ample pure water, shampoo and special type of enzyme to take care of the dirt and bacteria deposited in the pile. Then we rinse the rug thoroughly to make sure there is no residue left in the carpet. Drying is the last step. We have to make sure that the rug is completely dry before we deliver the rug; otherwise it would smell.
