Cleaning Area Rugs
Hydro Clean Carpet Cleaning can wash Oriental, Turkish, Persian, Uzbek, Navajo, Afghan and contemporary rugs whether they are hand knotted or machine made. We will roll them up, take them to the shop, clean them and then deliver and place the rugs back in the home.
We want the extra time with the natural rugs, so we can work without being rushed. Natural rugs, especially expensive or very delicate rugs should be treated with extra care. Natural fiber rug should be cleaned at low heat, low pressure and mild agitation with cleaning products that are designed specifically for natural rugs.
When cleaning these rugs, we need to test for color fastness and apply a dye locking agent when necessary to prevent the dyes from bleeding, fading or running. Rugs that have been affected by urine may need more than one cleaning or may need a more extensive cleaning in our submersion pit. We have to remember that urine and fecal matter is acidic and may permanently damage rug fibers. The length of time the animal matter was allowed to remain in the rug also affects the level of damage.
