Rug Cleaning Needed

​​THE BASICS: AREA RUGS ARE NOT CARPET

Area rugs are structured differently than carpet. Therefore, the two need different cleaning methods to get fully cleaned. Carpet has plastic backing, and area rugs have intertwined fibers that trap soil more easily.  Area rugs require special dusting equipment, not just a vacuum and shampoo like carpet. The real damage to area rugs is deeper down – vacuuming/steam cleaning doesn’t get deep enough to the dirt in the foundation. Moisture mixes with dirt and agents to make hard plaster that cuts fibers, accelerates wear, and causes fibers to crack.

​THE IMMERSION METHOD OF RUG CLEANING

Because area rugs have tightly-knit fibers that trap dirt and dust, vacuuming and shampooing are not appropriate methods to fully clean the rug. In-plant rug cleaning uses a technique called “immersion cleaning.” First, the rug is inspected and dusted to remove surface-level dirt and grime. Then the rug is submerged in flowing water. Immersion cleaning rids dirt from the fibers below surface levels in the base of the rugMost installed carpet is synthetic, so it benefits from some strong cleaning solutions and heat. An immersion is both relatively neutral and cold. This is safer for fine area rugs that are usually made of wool, as strong solutions are not used.

​PREVENT DAMAGES WITH IN-PLANT CLEANINGS

Most in-home rug cleaners utilize similar techniques and cleaning agents to what they would use on carpet. This is a problem because carpet cleaning cannot clean the foundation of an area rug – only the tips of carpet fibers. If only the surface of the rug is cleaned, the dirt deep down never gets touched. The strong solutions used in-home are damaging to natural fibers like wool, silk, and cotton. It is possible to chemically burn those fibers in the worst case if a technician does not have enough experience and training. Lastly, in-plant cleaning ensures your rugs are dried safely and quickly. The faster the rugs are dried, the lower the risk of mold and mildew growth.

Protectant

​Keep your rugs looking newer, longer with our protectant. The triple-action approach repels spills, resists soiling, and blocks stains by forcing liquids up to the surface where they bead up for easy cleanup. Plus, neutralizing action minimizes sticky residue other spray cleaners leave behind, making those reappearing, phantom stains a thing of the past.

Pet Odor Removal/Deodorizer

​We love our pets, they are family, but their smells don't have to take over our homes. We offer complete removal of common issues including, feces, urine and vomiting restoring your rug to the condition it was before the accident occurred, preventing your pet from wanting to remark the spot and cause further damage.

Specialty Spot Removal

​There's nothing more frustrating than stubborn spots and stains on your rug. While our normal professional cleaning can eliminate most stains some require more intensive cleaning methods. We are equipped with state-of-the-art products and innovative equipment that can take care of even the most persistent  spots and stains.



Moth & Insect Control

​Moths and carpet beetles are a major concern when found in wool rugs. The damage is done when the moth is in the larvae stage. The larvae feed on protein, lay eggs and this cycle continues to repeat, destroying the rug and causing costly repairs. Our Moth and Insect control destroys this cycle in its tracks and helps prevent future damage.

Anti-Allergen

​Common allergens such as pollen and dust can get trapped in rugs, causing allergic reactions to occur. Our Anti-Allergen Rug cleaning helps remove pollen, pet dander and dust mites helping to insure the health of your family.


Disinfection & Sanitation

​More and more we see the importance of keeping our families safe and free from unwanted germs. We utilize the same hospital grade botanical disinfectants that Insurance Restoration Contractors use to clean up water and fire damage, mold remediation and trauma scene clean up. Assuring that our process can help eliminate 99.9% of bacteria from your rug.
