When a Rug Smells of Smoke

It is understandable when the rugs and furnishings in a smoker's home smell of smoke.  Similarly, rugs that have been close to a fire will smell like smoke.   Sometimes, rugs will smell of smoke even if the fire was at quite a distance from the rugs.  We recently were contacted by a client whose home was filled with smoke from a fire in a property down the street from his home.  Even after a few days, the rug smelled of smoke.  We had to professionally clean the rug, and had to soak the rug for a longer period of time to get rid of the smoke.  We recommend having this care done as soon as possible after a fire to increase the chances of eliminating the odor completely.  --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
