Keep Your Rug Off The Floor While It Dries

My 100 year old Chiweenie had an accident on the living room floor during the middle of the night. I must have not heard her yip at me. She would not like that I wrote a blog about her accident. This isn't a normal thing despite her kidney disease. She's a good girl and I take her out a lot. With the subcutaneous fluids I have to inject in her every other day for the rest of her life, meds, & Omega she has lived the best 2 months of her life.

It wasn't a very big accident so I dried up what I could then steam cleaned it with the dog carpet soap and a carpet cleaner. After, the rug was very wet and I didn't want it to wreck the wood floor beneath it. I needed something to lift just the area that I steam cleaned so I looked at my available shelving, and ended up using the bottom shelf of a 36 X 16 ventilated shelf unit.

The ventilated panel was on 6 inch legs. I could have just used the panel alone too. The panels are 2 and 5/8 inches tall. Either way, the holes in the ventilated shelves help the rug dry. So I turned on the fan above. I eventually flipped the rug over to dry the other side.

If I would have cleaned the entire rug with a carpet cleaner, I would have put 3 longer ventilated shelves underneath to help it dry. This is why it's helpful to have several of our shelf units all over the house.
