For centuries Persian rugs have been considered the finest rugs in the world and the most sought after by rug collectors. They are the results of a centuries old artisan tradition that has been passed on through countless generations. The manufacture of the rug is often done in a local village. The dyes are the products of local plants and are made in the local village. It is this adherence to the traditional methods of rug craftsmanship that gives a Persian rug its value. If you own a Persian rug, you should keep it clean and use a professional cleaner to keep the rug free of dust and remove stains and odors. In return, you will have a rug whose beauty will last for decades and value will increase as it ages.
When properly maintained, a Persian rug can last for generations. But if you neglect the rug and do not keep it free of dust and stains, its value will diminish and the dust can damage the rug. ABC Carpet Cleaning Brooklyn has over two decades. We specialize in cleaning Persian and Oriental rug. Our staff is trained to know the best way to clean your rug. Before we even clean the rug, our staff will inspect the rug and note any conditions that can effect the cleaning process. This is important because if urine is present in the rug, it can cause the dyes to run. Because we use a neutral PH cleaner, our cleaning will not cause any color run, but urine can weaken the dyes and cause a color run. Often people who try to clean pet stains at home are surprised to see color run, but this is because pet urine weakens the bond between the dye and rug fabric. Any liquid will cause the dye to run and ruin the rug. During our cleaning, we can add a special solution that stabilizes the dye and blocks it from discoloring the rug.
Once our inspection is over we dust the rug with a special machine to removes any loose dirt and other particles from the rug. Once the rug is dusted, we pre-treat any spots and stains and odors. Then we place the rug in our cleaning pools and let is soak in the cleaning solution. The soaking will lift out the dust and dirt from the rug pile as well as stains and odors. Once the rug is thoroughly soaked, we hand clean the rug and work the detergent deep into the rug.
After cleaning we give the rug a through rinse and then dry the rug in our spin drying machine. Then we place the rug in our drying room. Our fast drying procedure is important because mold and mildew can start to form in 48 hours. When you get the rug back you will the amazing results we have given our customers for the last two decades.
