Oriental and Area Rugs
We Pick-Up and Deliver
Oriental and area rugs are more popular than ever as more homeowners install hard surfaces but want to retain the elegance and warmth of carpet and rugs. Cleaning rugs on-site is rare and risky for a number of reasons. We can explain why in detail when you call.
Do you know what questions to ask? You have essentially five choices to clean your area rug. 1. You can bring it to your favorite dry cleaner and they will mark-up and sublet the work to someone else. 2. You can have an untrained, uncertified average carpet cleaning technician clean it for you. This usually is a quick vacuum and steam cleaning either done in place or taken away and brought back. 3. You can have it cleaned at a factory style, assembly line plant. They usually do good work but price on volume with a percentage of "call backs" factored into the price and you probably are “encouraged” to pick-up and deliver. There is none of these in Olympia. 4. You can attempt to clean it yourself accepting much risk simply because you do not have the proper tools, knowledge and training necessary to achieve the level of cleanliness you expect. A subordinate option here of course is to do nothing but vacuum. Yet is your rug designed to endure the aggressiveness of a vacuum likely designed for stretched-in carpet? 5. You can hire a professional, insured, Certified Area Rug Specialist who will take the time to clean it as if it were his own.
Your understanding of the process helps you see the value and care that goes into each rug we clean.
Almost all rug manufacturers recommend a proper underlayment or pad for your rug. Read your tag if you have one. We precision custom cut and sell professional grade underlayment unique for your rug(s) as a part of our service. An underlayment serves several purposes. It stops or slows rug creep. Underlayment provides shock absorption for your face fibers so harmful dry soil does not easily erode the filaments. One study showed that one square foot of rug could hold up to a pound of soil! It gives the rug a regal appearance and just feels wonderful underfoot. Lastly, it protects the floor from harmful abrasion and possible chemical attack. Again, the underlayment we sell is not cheap no-skid foam rubber available at hardware and retail stores but true, top quality, custom cut products created just for you.
