Smoke and ash in the air from the Thomas Fire can easily affect rugs and carpets. Particulates are dangerous for humans and any sort of natural fabric. If your rug smells like smoke, most standard washes will take care of it by washing away soot particulates. After this, the rugs should be vacuumed regularly. In addition, heavily fire or smoke damaged rugs require both washing as well as professional deodorizing with specific odor removing solutions. Heavy ash and soot can be eliminated from rugs by professional rug washers at Rugs & More.
The longer that acidic ash from Thomas Fires and residue stays on your valuable rugs, the more damage it causes to the rug fibers and dyes. In addition, small amounts of direct fire damage burns can be re-knotted and restored. We are the foremost experts in Oriental rug cleaning and can remove black soot, restore the vibrant colors of your rug and neutralize any remaining odors of smoke. You should always consult with us at Rugs & More to determine how it can be cleaned best. Especially if the rug is a hand made, an antique, a heirloom or of significant value to you.
If flames or embers have damaged your rug, reweaving and re-knotting will repair actual fire damage. Due to high moisture contents, wool rugs will generally not ignite, and therefore may only have minimal damage. Even if you believe your Oriental rug is damaged beyond repair, it is always worth it to consult with our oriental rug cleaning professionals at Rugs & More to see what, can be done.
