Area rugs are textile floor coverings made of cotton, wool, silk, jute, animal skins, or manufactured fibres with or without a pile surface. They are usually made in separate pieces and sizes designed to cover a portion of the floor.
When practical the preferred system for cleaning rugs is to remove them from the home or business and clean them in a controlled environment where a variety of cleaning methods or combinations thereof may be used.
On location rug cleaning may be performed by technicians who have been specifically trained in techniques for inspecting, testing and evaluating, and then selecting the proper cleaning method for that rug.
Failure to perform specialized procedures may result in permanent damage to the rug and the flooring materials under and around the rug. Incomplete soil removal may occur due to the inability to dust or adequately vacuum both sides of the rug. Improper wet cleaning on-location could cause prolonged drying, texture change, cellulosic browning, dye migration, mould growth or dry rot.
Rug cleaning can be very challenging because the subject has so many variables. There are as many as 10 different ways to clean a rug. The principles are the same, but getting to the finished product can take different routes.
To safely and effectively clean rugs our specialist rug cleaning technicians have an outstanding working knowledge of fibre construction, cleaning principles, rug identification and detailed pre-clean inspection.
