Greensboro, NC Professional Oriental & Area Rug Cleaning Process

You should know what you are getting from your carpet cleaning services. When you enlist our Oriental rug cleaning services, you can rest assured that you will receive a comprehensive approach to our professional rug cleaning process. Some of the services you can expect include:

  1. Dry soil removal. We use a Rug Badger, a specially designed Oriental rug cleaning device, to gently and thoroughly dislodge all dry embedded soil in your Oriental rug. This is an essential step that other carpet and professional rug cleaning firms skip.
  2. Colorfastness testing. We use several liquids of varying pH levels to test the colorfastness of Oriental rug dyes, meaning we test if the fabric color fades or bleeds. If any dye migration is detected, we can apply dye-locking agents, or move on to dry cleaning.
  3. Rug cleaning. If there is no danger of dye migration, we will use one of our several wet cleaning methods along with one of several dry cleaning methods we like to use. We also have a custom-built Oriental Rug Stretching Rack that we designed and built to keep Oriental rugs in their original shape while being cleaned. This allows us to wet clean the most exotic handmade Oriental rugs without the danger of shrinking. We also feature a new patented invention of ours called The Evacuator, which allows for an incredibly thorough cleaning and odor removal!
  4. Drying. For Oriental rugs that are in danger of shrinking, we leave them on the Stretching Rack to dry. For Oriental rugs that are in danger of dye migration, we place them on a flat surface and blow clean air over and under them until dry. For all other Oriental rugs, we place them on our custom-designed Drying Racks. We’re proud to be able to bring this kind of Oriental and Persian rug cleaning & maintenance to Greensboro, NC!

We are committed to bringing your area rugs back to life and promoting healthier living environments with a delicate and thorough cleaning approach, no matter how challenging the case may seem.

How to Care For and Deep Clean Your Oriental Rug

How you treat your area rugs in between professional rug cleanings is important to maintaining their value and beauty for your enjoyment. Therefore, as a professional rug cleaning business, we took the time to put together some Oriental rug cleaning tips just for you!

  1. Vacuum your rug regularly but turn off the beater bar to prevent tears or runs in the delicate fibers.
  2. Don't put plants on Oriental rugs. When you take the rug up later, a circle pops out from the plant because the pad doesn't allow air to circulate. (This can cause mildew and dry rot on your specially chosen rug)
  3. Rotate your Oriental rug from time to time to allow for more evenly distributed wear (especially in a high-traffic area.)
  4. Block sunlight - over time, sunlight can cause the dye in your area rug to fade.
  5. Spot-clean a spill as soon as it happens. Dab the stain with a dry cloth to soak up the spill. Be careful what products you use: soap or bleach and many other common cleaners in your home can damage the rug fibers. Use water to clean the stain and if it doesn't work, contact us for professional and safe removal of the stain.
  6. Placing a pad under your Oriental rug helps keep it in place and can minimize wrinkling. We recommend professional Oriental carpet cleaning for your Oriental rug by our certified methods every 1-3 years to prevent dust, dirt, and urine odor buildup, and to restore the rug's natural fibers.
  7. To avoid mold and mildew, try to hang your Oriental rug outside every six months (or if your Persian rug suffers a spill.)
  8. Flip your area rug to allow the fringe to straighten out more naturally (don't "comb" the fringe.)

We are happy to answer your questions about proper rug treatment while we are cleaning your Oriental rug. We are committed to increasing the lifespan of your rugs and carpets, and we are always excited to share the tricks of the trade with our clients.
