Rug Cleaning

CleaningProfessional cleaning of a carpet or rug is recommended to remove the grit and dust build up which can accumulate over many years of use. We offer a full rug cleaning service that has been part of our business for over 25 years.  We can remove all the dust and dirt that will sink to the bottom of a rug or carpets pile and it will freshen up the whole appearance of the rug making the colours look clearer and the pile soft to touch.  We recommend cleaning a rug every 5 to 10 years depending on where the rug has been used. All our cleaning is done by hand using a non-abrasive soap solution specifically formulated to clean hand-made rugs and this requires several processes to complete properly.

Firstly the dust has to be removed, this is done using a beater hoover. It can be a lengthy process depending on the amount of dust built up in the rug. The rug or carpet is turned onto its front and the beater hoover is used on the back of the rug to beat the dust back through the pile. It is a process we have used for many years and in no way damages a rug in any way. It is the best way to remove the dust.

Secondly the rugs dyes have to be tested to make sure no chemical dyes have been used in the rugs construction. If so we have to careful not to use a strong cleaning solution to clean the rug, otherwise the chemical dyes can bleed and run into other colours on the rug. This can be prevented by using a slightly softer cleaning solution, which will still clean the rug to the highest standards that we expect to achieve.

Finally we will clean your carpet or rug by hand using a non-abrasive soap solution we have created to specifically use on antique and modern rugs. It is strong enough to remove all the dirt and grime build up on the surface of a rug as well as cleaning deep down into the rugs pile making the rug look like new.
