Vibrant colors. Complicated weaves. Subdued textures. Your quality rug is a work of art, so why treat it like anything less? Bob’s Best rug cleaning Carlsbad services ensures that your fine rugs will be cleaned with the utmost care. To clean a hand woven textile properly, it should be in an environment where it can be hand cleaned and dried gently by an experienced hand.
Other rug cleaners wash rugs with machines, but Bob’s Best will hand wash your rug using our thorough ADVANCED PLUS™ cleaning system, giving it a gentle yet deep clean that won’t ruin its colors or shape.
With over thirty years experience of hand washing specialty rugs, let Bob’s Best rug cleaning Carlsbad, CA restore your rug to its premium condition.
Rug Cleaning Carlsbad Process
Our complete ADVANCED PLUS cleaning process for rugs takes us between 7 to 10 days. A brief description of this hand washing process is as follows:
Pre-Inspection and Pick Up
First, we determine the type of rug and any inherent qualities that may affect cleaning. We outline expected results and cleaning “prescription,” then pick up your rug from your home for cleaning.
Dry Soil Removal
Using a variety of techniques, including a machine pile lifter and vacuum attachments, the rug is then “dusted” from front to back, lifting any dry soil.
Color Fast Test
Next, a color test is performed on the rug to prevent any running or fading of colors.
Pre-Condition, Pre-Spot, and Fringe Preparation
Depending on the rug’s fiber content and the type of soiling, the next step is to pre-condition the rug to emulsify the soils. Difficult spots, along with the rug’s fringe, are then pre-treated with special solutions to allow maximum soil removal.
Most rugs are hand cleaned, with a specially-formulated Oriental Rug Shampoo, designed for maximum cleaning while protecting sensitive natural fibers.
Rinse or Wash
After the rug is shampooed, both sides of the rug are rinsed or washed in a clean water wash pit made for specialty rugs.
Speed Dry and Finishing
Our experience with proper rug drying times and techniques is essential for this process, as it helps to avoid unnatural shrinkage. Once the soil is rinsed away, the rug is dried flat or hung to dry in a controlled environment. When the rug is dry, it is next combed and finished with soft groomers made exclusively for specialty rugs.
Post Inspection and Delivery
And finally, our cleaning specialist will give the rug a final inspection and release it for delivery.
How to Care for your Oriental Rug
To insure even wear, your rug should typically be rotated once a year. For lighter or heavier traffic, the rotation may vary from six months to two years.
Oriental rugs, like most carpeting, should be vacuumed on a regular basis to remove dirt and restore life to the fibers. Careful not to vacuum the fringe with your beater bar! Instead, use the end of a vacuum hose from a canister vacuum.
A quality pad used under your rug helps protect it from dirt, wear, and slippage.
Spot and Spill Procedure
Follow this procedure to safely and immediately clean up spots and spills before they set:
- Soak up the excess liquid by blotting it with a clean, absorbent material. Do not brush or rub the stain.
- Spot-clean with a mild detergent/white vinegar/water solution. Do not over wet.
- Rinse area thoroughly with water and a small amount of vinegar. Avoid wetting the rug’s backing.
- Blot dry until most of the moisture has been absorbed.
- Allow rug to air dry. A fan or cool hair dryer can be used to hasten the drying process.
