Rugs come in all shapes and sizes, different types of pile and a range of materials including wool and manmade fibres. Some makes and types of rug such as Oriental, Persian and fine rugs are often an expensive investment for the home but, with regular cleaning and maintenance, will last for years.
Some inspection and testing for colour fastness is usually essential to determine the best cleaning method for a rug. Dry dirt can usually be removed with an industrial vacuum on both sides of the rug.
As part of our service, we offer offsite cleaning for small to medium size rugs and we can apply techniques such as pneumatic beating prior to vacuuming to remove dry soil and other dirt.
Rugs will be returned clean and dry.
Leave in the sun once or twice a year with the sun facing the back of the rug to destroy enzymes.
Turn regularly to ensure the wear of the rug is even.
Lightly vacuum the back and front of the rug once a week - do not vacuum the fringes.
Comb or brush out fringes using a broad tooth brush.
Beat the rug once a year over a washing line to remove dust and dirt.
Use protectors on chair legs or tables to protect the rug.
