How to Remove Mould from a Jute Rug

Act Fast: Mould Grows Quickly After a Water Damage

When a jute rug is subjected to water damage and it is left untreated, mould will appear quickly (in as little as 48 hours), the rug will develop a distasteful odour, and then becomes at risk of being permanently damaged. This is also true of other natural fibre rugs. Once mould has developed, anyone near the rug is at risk of developing health problems. Due to this, having the rug treated by professionals with experience in cleaning mould from rugs is extremely important.

Why Cleaning at Home Isn’t Sufficient

While you can try to remove mould from your rug yourself, it often becomes a far more difficult task than you realise. Even if you have your own home carpet cleaner, it is unlikely that you will be able to remove all traces of mould and odour, and in many cases the stain and odour returns. It is also important to understand that you need to have a large space available to clean the rug and a rack to put it on to dry it thoroughly. Cleaning a rug cannot be rushed and can often lead to more damage if acre isn’t taken.
