HOW WE CLEAN AREA RUGS STEP BY STEP

STEP 1. INSPECTION

We inspect to determine the type of surface we are cleaning and to select the appropriate cleaning product. We also look for cracks or chips in the grout to bring to your attention.

STEP 2. APPROPRIATE SAFEGUARDS

We move most furniture, although there will be extra charges for moving appliances and heavy furniture

STEP 3. RUG DUSTING

We will pre-clean one of the worst areas to determine that the results are what you expect. Most of the time the results are dramatic, however, if the grout was not sealed and is deeply stained no amount of cleaning will remove deeply set permanent stains.

Benefit: We would rather test a small area than spend hours only to find that the results were not up to your expectations. In some cases, there could be a minimum charge incurred.

The appropriate cleaning agent is applied.

Critical Questions to Ask When Selecting the Right Area Rug Cleaner

  • Are they thoroughly trained in expert rug care?
  • Do they run your rug through an automated machine, like a car wash, or is it expertly handled by a rug cleaning specialist?
  • Do they use chlorine bleach to whiten the fringe? (Chlorine bleach makes fringe brittle and will cause it to disintegrate).
  • Do they have the expertise to remove tough stains?
  • Do they have the resources to properly repair your rug?

FAQS

Will Pet Odors Come Out During The Washing?

The key to removing pet urine odors from your rugs is to start by eliminating the contamination that causes the odor. This can only be removed with our special pet treatment, which includes things like a full saturation flushing, thorough washing on both sides of the rug, and an odor neutralizer that helps kill the odor causing bacteria. Some store bought products only mask the odor temporarily. 

Rug Cleaning Quick Facts

Rugs look better and last longer when properly maintained.
A 9 x 12 rug can hold up to 87 pounds of dry soil before looking dirty! Dry soils are abrasive and “saw away” at rug fibers like sandpaper every time you walk across your rug, shortening its life.
The Oriental Rug Importers Association recommends cleaning handmade Oriental, wool and machine-made carpets every 2 to 4 years.

What Should I Do To Maintain My Rugs In Between Cleanings?

Make sure to vacuum your rugs often.  Vacuum your rugs at least once a week, more often in high traffic areas of your house.  Doing so will keep your rugs in good condition.  Also make sure to clean up spills as soon as they happen.  If left too long, they can create stains that cannot be removed, even with professional cleaning.

What Type Of Rugs Can Be Washed?

Any type of rug can be cleaned. From natural fibers such as wool, to synthetic material like nylon or polyester. Even animal pelts can be cleaned! A thorough inspection is performed to ensure the best possible and safest cleaning method is used.

I Have Stains On My Rugs, Will They Come Out During The Cleaning?

Not all stains can be removed, even with professional cleaning.  The kind of stain, length of time it’s been on the rug, and the general condition of the fibers, all play a role in stain removal. Things such as pet urine, coffee, tea, and alcohol can permanently discolor or re-dye the fibers.
