At Home Spot Removal:
* We do not recommend you work on your valuable rugs if you are not sure what you are doing. Any chemical products used on your wool and silk rug is not recommended; this has to be done by professional, experienced technicians. You are taking a risk that even professionals might not be able to correct.
Here are the steps you can take to try and prevent a stain.
Carefully blot off whatever you can. If you can try not to rub the spot in this will only drive the stain deeper. Use tap water on a paper towel or terry towel to blot and dilute whatever remains. For a stubborn spot you may add a little gentle detergent or dishwasher soap to a cup of plain water blot again with this solution then blot this spot up with another clean white towel. Follow with a damp towel to remove any leftover soap and finish with a dry clean white or terry towel.
We do pick up and deliver your rugs if you would like us to correct the stain and wash your rugs fully.
Pet stain and odors are best handled by professionals who use enzymes to neutralize the bacteria in urine and other deposits such as organic waste and vomit.
