How has man's best friend treated your area rugs?

Man's best friend can be hard to love at times. While our pets can be great companions, they can have some accidents along the way. These accidents can happen on our expensive floor coverings like our area rugs. When this occurs it's important to blot up the area immediately. How to blot? I would get a roll of paper towels and a garbage can. Fold the towels and place them on the effected area. Stand on the towels and allow the moisture to go into the towel. When towels have absorbed the liquid - throw the towels into the garbage can. Keep repeating until the towels are dry. Then I would use a solution of a tablespoon of dish soap into a glass of water. apply the solution to the affected area. let sit for a little bit and then repeat the blotting.

If this does not help then the area rug will have to be taken in to a professional who does a soaking process. This process gives a thorough rinsing and cleaning. It is a more expensive process so the worth of the rug is important. This process while not guaranteed has been proven to be quite effective.

Rugs should be professionally cleaned annually. What does professional cleaning consist of? One of the most important things a professional rug cleaner can do is a thorough dry soil removal process. This process consists of a rug dusting procedure. What a rug dusting procedure consists of is a machine that agitates the dirt out of the backing of your rugs. How this is accomplished is rugs are played down, upside down on top of some grates. The grates elevate the rugs above the floor. The rug dusting machine is run over the backing and the rug dusting machine gently agitates the rug and the dirt drops from the rugs backing through the grates onto the floor. This $5000.00 machine does the work that your vacuum cleaner can't. The rugs backing is then vacuumed with a beater brush vacuum. The rug is flipped over and a pile lifter vacuum is used to vacuum the face yarn. These steps are all completed before the actual cleaning takes place.

A thorough dry soil removal process is key to superior results.

Only way to clean rugs is in a cleaning facility not the home

Cleaning rugs can be a tricky business. For the best results and safety of the rugs the best way to clean rugs is at a cleaning facility where you take the rugs to the professional cleaner or have them picked up and delivered. In a cleaning facility they can do many things that cannot be done in your home. Rugs can and should be dusted annually, not just vacuumed but dusted. You cannot dust rugs in the home, only at a cleaning facility. The equipment is quite large.

Rug dusting is when you lay a rug upside down and a rug dusting machine is run over the back of the rug to loosen the impacted soil in the rug. Soil gets trapped in rug backings and vacuum cleaners can't get the rug to release the dirt like a dusting machine can. This dirt drops from the rug through the grates. The rug is sitting on top of the grates above the dirt. Then a beater brush vacuum is run over the backing to clean the backing. Rugs are then flipped over and a pile lifter vacuum is used on the face yarn.

Rugs are then cleaned and rinsed. Spots worked on. Rugs are groomed and hung to dry. After drying rugs are brought down and inspected. Additional cleaning is done if necessary. If rug is deemed ready it is wrapped in brown paper ready to be returned to you.

Rug Dusting can preserve your rugs and make them last longer

In Plant rug cleaning is the best way to clean your rugs. Cleaning your area rugs on the floor in your home is just not the most professional way to clean them. The care that rugs need cannot be applied in the home. Rug cleaning should be a multi step process. A true rug cleaning multi step process needs to include rug dusting. Dry soil removal is a very important part of the rug cleaning process.

Dirt gets trapped in the backing of wool rugs. Wool under the microscope is a very jagged fiber. Wool is not a smooth fiber like nylon. The jagged part of the fiber can help keep dirt trapped in the rug. Your regular vacuuming can have a hard time getting the dirt out of a rug. A professional process is what it takes.

If you don't get the dry soil out of your rug that soil can damage your rug by cutting the fibers like little knives and allowing dirt to fill in to the inner portion of the fibers. The more the dirt fills into the inner portion of the fiber the harder the rug is to clean and the sooner the rug can ugly out.

The best way to clean your rugs is to take them to a professional clear and have the rugs put to a thorough in plant cleaning process. This process must include rug dusting. What is rug dusting? Rug dusting is one of the most thorough ways to remove dry soil. This is important because if soil is left in the rug it can cut and damage your rug fibers and prematurely wear out your rug.

Rug dusting procedures work like this: first we lay your rug face down on top of some grates. Then we run the rug dusting machine over the back of the rugs.

Sent your rugs out for their annual cleaning yet?

Bet you haven't finished your Spring cleaning projects yet. Did you send your rugs out to be cleaned? Rugs should be cleaned with a professional process that includes dusting. Processes like dusting cannot be accomplished in your home. In plant cleaning should include dusting. Dusting processes will remove dry soil that has impacted into the backing. The dry soil that is left in your rug can act like knives against the rug fibers cutting them and the cuts or scratches in the rug fibers allow dirt to get deeper into the fibers of the rug. The deeper the dirt gets into the rug the harder it is to remove. Wool rugs are also noxiously hard to vacuum. Wool fibers under a microscope are very jagged. The jaggedness of the fiber makes it harder to get the dirt to release when vacuumed. The dusting process is much more thorough.

An annual cleaning and dusting will make your carpet last much longer and prevent it from uglying out prematurely. Dunne Cleaning Specialists has been around since 1969. We want to serve you with all your cleaning needs. Family owned and operated since 1969. We have the experience and we care about what we do.

How much dirt can an oriental rug hold?

Oriental rugs can hold several pounds of dirt. Wool fibers under a microscope are very jagged. This jagged shape helps trap dirt and makes vacuuming less effective. This dirt also can be very damaging to the fibers of the rug. Dirt can act like little knives and actually cut the fibers. This can reduce the life span of your expensive oriental rugs. Professional cleaning can help with this.

Professional rug dusting is a great first step in the cleaning process. Wool rugs can really hold the dirt. Regular vacuuming has a hard time doing an effective job of removing soil. At a professional cleaning facility a rug dusting procedure can get more of the soil out than any vacuum cleaner regardless of the price. Rugs are laid flat upside down on top of some grates. Then our rug dusting machine is run over the back of the rug to agitate the dirt out of the rug. Dirt get impacted into the backing of your rug and simple vacuuming cannot effectively dislodge it.

Dry soil removal before the cleaning process is the key to cleaning wool rugs. Rugs are cleaned and rinsed. Spots are worked on to attempt removal. Rugs are groomed and hung to dry. After drying rugs are reinspected. Rugs are either reclined, touched up or rolled up after the inspection.

We have almost 50 years in the cleaning industry trust Dunne Cleaning Specialists with your rugs.
