The Importance of Professional Area Rug Cleaning
Whether machine made or hand woven, domestic or imported, a fine area carpet rug is a work of art that can last for generations with the proper care.
Even if your area rug appears clean, experts recommend professional area rug cleaning every two to three years. You just might be surprised by more vibrant colors and luster after proper cleaning. But more importantly, in home vacuuming doesn’t prevent the build-up of dust and grime hiding deep down in the rug’s pile. Abrasive particles will cut into your carpet’s fibers, and are the real cause of wear due to foot traffic. Hidden grime also encourages the growth of mold, bacteria, and pests. Area Rugs require professional dusting that vibrates this dirt out of the fiber and pile of the rug, Do-it-yourself or in-home cleaning by a general-purpose carpet cleaning service can shorten the lifetime of, or even damage, your fine carpets. Improper treatment often leaves residues that actually attracts soiling.
Fine carpets require fine care. At Gentle Genie we perform only hand washing or dry cleaning, one rug at a time. Our services begin with a careful inspection for damage and identification of the rug’s fibers and type of construction. Next we test all colors for bleeding or color migration. We can then proceed with using exactly the right cleaning methods, specialty shampoos and solutions. After immersion washing, water is extracted and your rug is then carefully monitored during a natural drying process. Thoroughly drying your rug is important to prevent mold, mildew and dry rot and is a step that is nearly impossible to accomplish with do it yourself methods or in home steam cleaning. Our other services include treating stains, including pet stains, moth proofing, and soil and stain protector. We also carry high quality rug pads that can minimize wear and extend the life of your rug.
