When a Flood Causes the Colors in Your Oriental Rug to Run



The rug pictured above was left in sitting water due to a flood in our client's home.  The sitting water caused some of the dyes to run, or bleed, into surrounding fields.  Color run amelioration, while not completely perfect, can remove evidence of some of the color run.  The picture below shows the same rug after the color run amelioration process.   When the color run is less apparent, a traditional and time-honored home remedy may be the preferred method - that is,  allowing the sun to mute the color run often is the only remedy needed. -- www.traditionalrugrepair.com
