Nejad Rugs has been contracted by a prominent Bucks County PA businessman to wash and repair 40 smoke damaged Oriental Rugs. The client, working with his insurance company, trusts Nejad Rugs’ 31 years of experience to expertly service his rugs.
In the handling of such a formidable job, remediation of both visible soot as well as the various types of odors
from smoke damage due to fire requires the application of careful, stepwise methods using proven techniques – but most importantly the judgement and experience of a qualified Oriental rug expert. The restoration process for
each damaged textile can vary depending upon the extent and type of damage.
It is important not to attempt to wash or deoderize a smoke-damaged rug as the first course of action. Deoderizing will only mask the odor (wood fires, plastic fires, other synthetics odors) and will be effective –
if at all – for a short time only. Washing, as the first course of action, is also ill-advised as that would only result in spreading soot both into the rug pile as well as smudging the surface.
Money, time and your rugs can best be saved by contacting a professional fire restorer and rug restoration service as soon as possible after any damage has been incurred – this information usually available through your home insurance agent. If you need immediate assistance or have any questions please call Nejad Rugs in Doylestown at 215-348-1255.
