Carlsbad Area Rug Cleaning Service
Even in low traffic areas all rugs need to be cleaned every one to three years. And fine rugs should be professionally treated immediately after any spills.
Even if they don’t look dirty, dust, dirt, sand, and grime penetrate deep down below where a vacuum simply can’t reach. Abrasive particles quite literally cut fibers and are the real reason behind wear. And grime encourages mildew, odors, and pests. Authorities strongly advise against any sort of in-home cleaning. At best it will only remove surface dirt, perhaps replacing it with sticky residue. At worst it can cause permanent damage. Never steam-clean any rug containing wool.
At Gentle Genie we use full immersion cold-water cleaning, and in special cases by-hand dry cleaning. We also provide pet urine, moth, pest, and allergy treatments as well as stain and soil protection, padding, and preparation for storage. We’re also the local experts for appraisals and repairs.
Oriental Rug Cleaning in Carlsbad
Oriental rugs are made of various combinations of wool, cotton, and silk fibers. It’s critical to understand the exact fiber blend and construction style in order to provide a safe yet thorough cleaning. Chinese rugs must be cleaned by hand in cold water. No machines, no harsh chemicals, and absolutely no steam. The process is time consuming, but each step is necessary.
- thoroughly inspect, document findings
- test each color dye for bleeding
- hand washing in flowing water with specially formulated shampoo
- conditioning as needed
- grooming for best texture
- natural drying, with no wringers or rollers, monitored for progress
Persian Rug Cleaning in Carlsbad
Wool is the most common material, and cotton, silk, and metal threads can also be included. So the Persian rug cleaning process is much the same as for oriental rugs, but with special nuances related to the exact fiber blend, weave, and other construction and dyeing details.
Did you know that the finest Persian rugs are made in Iran by thousands of small independent weavers? That means that each is truly a one of a kind creation. Recently, fine Persian rugs made in India, Pakistan, Turkey, and China have entered the market.
