Oriental Rug Washing
We offer “The Most Thorough Cleaning Ever, or It’s Free” guarantee on our Oriental Rug Cleaning. Rugs suffer the same exposure to abrasive soil, spills and pet accidents that carpeting does. However, most rugs are made of natural fibers, wool, and cotton, that absorb the liquid. And the construction is such that sand can pack down inside the backing. Many are handmade and valuable, with dyes that aren’t necessarily stable in water. All this means these rugs need to be handled with extra care, skill and appropriate technology to get them truly clean.
When cleaning specialty rugs, there is more on the line than a regular carpet. Persian, Oriental, Turkish, and silk rugs can have significant financial, personal, and historical value. We understand delicate fibers and dyes in specialty rugs are strong and vibrant. We realize the value of the rug and work our hardest to make sure the centerpiece of your room is clean and beautiful. Our treatment is proactive in preventing future wear and tear. By using high-end cleaning products, we can protect your specialty carpet from color fading, discoloration, browning, and more. Our process makes sure to gently clean your specialty carpet without damaging it.
The rug cleaning system we use includes dusting with compressed air and a proprietary tool that gently removes 80-90% of the soil. Submersion washing removes even the nastiest stuff that has been absorbed by the fibers. The end result is a rug that is so clean you could use it as a tablecloth. Imagine your Oriental rug having suffered all the indignities that came in on the soles of your shoes, now clean enough to put on your dining room table! The process is ideal for removing pet accidents.
If your rug is valuable, no other rug cleaning even comes close to Atlantic Cleaner’s rug washing service.
