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.

Holiday Rug Cleaning Special

Annual maintenance of your loose rugs is important if you want to keep them for a while. Wool is a very sturdy fiber. It handles traffic very well. It is very crush resistant unlike nylon. Some disadvantages to wool are under a microscope the wool fiber is very jagged. This shape tends to hold soil in and make vacuuming more difficult and less effective. Over the course of a year or more several pounds of dirt can become trapped in the rug. Yes I did say several pounds of dirt can be trapped in your rug. A true professional puts each and every rug through a thorough dry soil removal process before cleaning and rinsing.

Dunne Cleaning employs a rug dusting machine to gently agitate the dirt out of the backing of the rug before the actual cleaning process in addition to the other specialty vacuums that we use to remove as much dry soil as possible. This is the secret to keeping your rugs longer. All that abrasive soil can become trapped in the rug. This soil can act like knives in the rug on your carpet fibers. Wearing the rug out prematurely.

When your rug got wet did the fringe turn red?

When your rug got wet did the fringe turn red? Bring your rug into our cleaning plant and we may be able to fix that. The real key to getting red out of fringe is not really in removing the red but in not destroying the fringe while removing the red dye. It isn’t that difficult for the average professional to remove red dye from fringe. What is difficult is neutralizing what you use to remove the red dye from the fringe.

This skill will separate the amateur from a professional. If you don’t neutralize the stripping agent the fringe will eventually breakdown. The stripping agent will continue to work until the fringe dissolves. So make sure when you have a fringe problem you have someone who knows what they are doing working on your rug.

Not all fringe problems can be corrected, sometimes you need to consider either liking with they issue or replacing the fringe.
