Don’t let mold be the reason why you must throw away your precious floor piece. Many times, homeowners must deal with a flood from a broken pipe which has caused water damage to their floors, walls, carpets and their Oriental rugs.
If this has been you at some point, you know how over whelming, tedious and expensive this process can be. It not only frustrates you but it will burn a hole in your pocket if you do not have homeowners insurance. Even if you do have homeowners insurance, will you have all the money to pay the deductible? Sometimes, homeowners have to wait to first get the insurance to approve the repairs and damages. Then they have to make sure they hire the right company to handle the proper techniques or they will end up at square one again but this time, their homeowners insurance will not honor the claim. A wet rug can become a breeding ground for mold. Before you contact anyone, get the rug out of your home. Because mold is very dangerous to your health, you do not want to be in contact with it for a long period of time. Mold grows very quickly so once you have put the rug in a trash bag and have taken it out of your home.

As you can see in the video, we make sure to wrap the rug in plastic and apply another treatment with the defogger. We then set the rug safely aside for about one to two weeks (away from any other rugs in the plant) so that we are postie that the mold and bacteria is killed completely. We do not rush this process because it’s a timely process that requires the utmost precision and technique. We never cut corners.
