Damage Restoration TIPS
In order to receive the best results for your water damaged rug, there are a few important steps for you to follow:
- Remove the rug from the water as quickly as possible. The longer the rug sits in the water, the more severe the damages become.
- Do not roll the rug. Rolling the rug slows down the drying process, causes moisture to become trapped, and creates dark, moist pockets for mold and mildew to accumulate.
- Lay it out to dry outside or in a well-ventilated area instead. The faster your rug can naturally dry, the better. Don’t worry about scrubbing out any dirt or stains at this point. Leave that for the professionals to care for.
- Call the Miami Oriental Rug Pros right away. As soon as you call your insurance company, you should follow up with a call to our cleaning specialists. The sooner we are able to collect your rug and begin the cleaning process, the better the results will be.
