When Should You Have Your Area Rugs Professionally Cleaned?


Oriental and Area Rug Professional Cleaning

Most rugs can be maintained with frequent vacuuming for many months but when you need a thorough cleaning of your fine rugs, have a company pick up your rugs and clean them in a specially designed facility. In-plant cleaning allows for a more thorough cleaning, controlled drying, and the use of various tools that are not available on location.

They should be cleaned according to extensive area rug cleaning procedures. Uninformed carpet cleaners may needlessly ruin a rug from simply not knowing the potential problems of certain rugs.

Professional cleaning of your rug should be cleaned according to the following important steps:

Step 1: Pre-Inspection

Pre-inspection will determine as much as we possibly can about the type of rug and any qualities that may affect cleaning effectiveness. Rug Dry Cleaning Houston outlines the cleaning “prescription” and the expected results.

Step 2: Dry Soil Removal

Woven rugs, especially hand-knotted rugs are designed to hide dry soil. A few years ago the Eureka company did a study and found that a 9′ x 12′ rug could hide 85 lbs of dirt! Wow! There are uniquely designed ‘rug beaters’ that gently and safely extracts the loose dirt from a rug without harming or damaging it. This is the most important step in cleaning any textile.

Step 3: Pre-Conditioning

Depending on fiber content and soiling type, the rug should be pre-treated to emulsify the soils.

Step 4: Pre-Spot and Fringe Preparation

Any potentially difficult spots should be pre-treated with special solutions to increase the chance of removal. The fringe should also pre-treated for maximum soil removal.

Step 5: Soil Extraction and Rinse

The rug should then be thoroughly rinsed with a powerful extraction cleaning system without over wetting or leaving a sticky residue behind.

Step 6: Drying

Once the soil is rinsed away the rug is dried flat or hung to dry in a controlled environment. Proper drying is essential to avoid unnatural shrinkage.

Step 7: Finishing

When the rug is dry it is combed and finished with soft custom-made groomers.

Step 8: Post-Inspection

Cleaning specialist will give the rug a final inspection and release it for pick-up or delivery.
