Rugs damaged by fire or water need specialist and immediate care.  They need to be handled carefully even while on site prior to cleaning or a salvage is attempted. Oftentimes rugs are permanently damaged, not from the initial fire or water contamination, but due to incorrect handling. Follow these simple guidelines for dealing with damaged rugs:

  • Synthetic and Wool Rich Rugs with water damage:

As much water as possible should be extracted on site. Then the rug should be placed on a plastic sheet and rolled up and taken immediately to a specialist rug cleaner. The rug should not be left in the plastic for any length of time.

  • Synthetic and Wool Rich Rugs with smoke damage:

Place the rug on a plastic sheet and roll up and take immediately to a professional rug cleaner. Again, the rug should be left in the plastic for an extended period of time.

  • Oriental rugs with smoke damage:

Be wary handling smoke damaged Oriental rugs as oil from your hands can combine with the soot that makes this damage more difficult to remove. Wear cotton gloves. Vacuum as much soot as possible with a light vacuum on site. Then place on a plastic sheet and rolled up and taken immediately to a specialist rug cleaner. The rug should not be left in the plastic for any length of time.
