Professional Rug Cleaning
Our hand-washing techniques are custom tailored to the specific needs of each rug.Rug Cleaning techniques and solutions are formulated depending on structure, type of material, soiling, fragility, and dye type. After complete removal of sandy grit and particulate matter, most rugs are hand washed in water-based solutions; all rugs are thoroughly rinsed to remove all dirt, soap, or chemical residue. Our heated drying room ensures complete drying and zero mildew. By the time the rug is washed and dried, no allergens (other than the fibers themselves or adhesives used in manufacture) remain in the rug.
How often do you require Rug Cleaning?
Deciding how often to have household rugs cleaned depends on extent of foot traffic, staining or pet problems, proximity to an unventilated kitchen or other airborne pollutants, and personal preference regarding the appearance of the rug. Most professional conservators recommend rug cleaning every three to five years to remove damaging soil, grit, and oily buildup in typical household environments. Allowing rugs to accumulate soil and grit for too long can cause discoloration and degradation of fibers, and can allow certain stains to become permanent. Since over-washing is never recommended, we formulate milder solutions when only light washing is necessary. Stored or displayed rugs should be kept clean, as they are more vulnerable to insect damage when dirty.
