Rug Odor Removal
Foul smell lingering your area carpet could be the result of inadequate maintenance and paying little attention to the causes of rug odors and removal of those causes. The presence of bacteria is the main cause of organic sources such as pet smells, damp smells, mold smells and others. Bad carpet odors create unhealthy and unpleasant living environment. In addition, bad odors significantly impact your area rug’s condition, value, and usability. Therefore, it is important to identify and eliminate the causes as soon as possible. However, odor traps inside the area carpet fiber and eliminating the source does not necessarily eliminate the bad odor. This is the time you use professional hand-washing carpet cleaning for rug odor removal and carpet smell restoration. What are the most common carpet odors? Pet Odors/Dog Stains Any type of animal waste such as dog urine, cat urine, dog feces, other pet bodily fluids not only cause carpet stain, but also carpet odors. In addition, some pets have some natural body odors that can be absorbed by the area carpet fibers over the time. Organic Waste Odor Spilling food or drink such as dairy, meat, fruits and other organic products on area carpets are sources of foul carpet odors and stains. Moisture Leaving wet area carpets unattended results in trapping moisture and dampness underneath them. In addition to other damages to the area carpet foundation, a musty smell is being created. Spilling liquids, humidity, floods are some of the common sources of damp odor. Molds Another unwanted product of damp carpets is molds. This may happen when an area rug is being rolled or folded and stored in a damp environment such as basements or storages over a period of time. Moldy carpets could contain unpleasant musty smell. Tobacco Odor Carpet fibers absorb odors from environment. Indoor cigarette or cigar smoking, over a period of time, causes bad carpet odors. Spillage of tobacco ashes and ashtrays on the rugs is another cause of smoking odor. Other Odors Spillage of some types of non organic products causes penetration of some chemical into the area carpet piles that may cause some non organic yet unpleasant smell. Depending on lifestyle, there may be other rare reasons for carpet odors. Rug odor Removal Process As mentioned, if there is an ongoing situation, the first step into carpet odor removal is to identify and eliminate the source of odor. For example, if there is water leakage that causes extra moisture into the carpet, the leakage must be stopped. The second best step is to let a knowledgeable professional carpet cleaner take over the odor removal process. Attempting odor removal without adequate knowledge and expertise could end up with no results or adverse results. Therefore, before anyone takes your area carpet away, ask how they would permanently remove the odor. The use of strong perfumes and some commercial odor removal products is not a solution to permanent odor removal. Those products only mask the odor. The foul odor will return once the smell of the perfume wears off. At our rug cleaning facility, we use our own specialized techniques, equipments and products to successfully remove all types of carpet odors.
