Due to their naturally absorbent nature, the fibers in your Persian or Oriental rugs may pick up a variety of odors over time. The most common type is pet odor. While urine and other pet accidents will obviously leave bad smells, pet odor is not always caused by pets accidents. Pet fur leaves a musty smell on rugs over time, too. Dander, combined with humidity, can cause lingering smells that need professional help to be removed. Persian Rug Cleaner can properly deodorize your rug without using harsh chemicals on it.
Simply removing animal fur is not enough to remove the scent that pet dander leaves on your rugs. Over time, the build-up of this type of odor can only be removed with an enzyme-based wash.
An enzyme-based wash can remove all types of pet smells, including but not limited to pet fluid odors (urine, vomit, etc.), natural pet odors, musty odors (a wet dog rolling across your rug can leave this type of smell behind), and more.
We use a live bacteria enzyme solution treatment, along with other organic cleansers, to remove odors and restore your rugs from the foundation up. Our special technique involves soaking your rug and gently rewashing it as many times as it takes. Persian Rug Cleaner washes your rug according to its age, type, thickness, country of origin, fiber count, and the cause of bad smell.
Why Does My Pet Keep Marking My Rug Anyway?
Remember to take action immediately after your pet marks your rug, otherwise, your pet may believe that it has permission to continue marking your rug. Your pet may simply not realize that its behavior is unsuitable.
Tufted rugs are the most common victims of pet marking. Tufted rugs have a backing attached to the underside of the rug. This backing is attached using any number of glues- chemical, natural latex, organic, and more. Dogs are especially sensitive to these glues, and the scents may cause them to become confused and mark the rugs.
Behnam Rugs advises customers with pets, especially those with younger pets, to steer clear of tufted rugs. Although they may seem like an inexpensive option when you purchase them, the amount of cleaning you will end up needing is simply not worth it in the end.
Although you may not have any pets at home, your rug may still have a peculiar smell about it. This is completely normal. Rugs are made of natural fibers, and these natural fibers are very absorbent. Years of dust, dander, dirt, debris, and more will be absorbed by fibers such as cotton, wool, and silk, contributing to that “old” rug smell.
By regularly keeping your rug cleaned, you can prevent these types of odors. We recommend having your rug washed every three to five years. If your rug is in an area of high traffic, you may consider having it washed more often than that.
