Water Damaged Rug - A Rug Rescue

Last week a customer brought in a rug of hers that had just gone through some water damage. She was away for the weekend and when she returned home, her whole apartment had flooded due to a water pipe breaking. While removing the rug from her living room, she placed it in her backyard. Unfortunately it was not dried flat, so bubbling of the rug occurred. Not only that but it was hard water that damaged the rug so it's texture was very rough/hard. Take a look below:
The owner thought her rug was a complete loss, but we put her mind at ease. What this rug needed was a thorough deep cleaning, which involves a complete wet washing. We went to work right away on the rug and  after we completed the natural drying it was a completely different rug. Take a look below:
Not only did we get all the bubbling out, but after our deep cleaning the pile is nice and soft again as well as being sanitized and deodorized. Our customer was so happy that she did not have to call this rug a loss. It now looks brand new and is ready for many more years of use. Another happy customer left with their rug and we were more than happy to help. If water damage occurs in your home and you need our help to rescue your rug, contact us right away so we can step you through your options to just that... the Rug Ideas way!
