How to choose a rug cleaner

Rug cleaning is a professional that requires experience because rugs are not all cleaned the same. While we have one of the most modern machines in the Chicagoland area we don't use it for all rugs. Some rugs are more delicate than others and must be hand cleaned. Some rugs must have dryer methods applied to them. Some rugs need specialty soaps. The key to a good rug cleaner is figuring this all out before the cleaning process starts. We have been in the cleaning industry for over 54 years and are family owned and operated by 3 generations.

Holidays approaching clean your rugs!

When did you last clean your rugs? Can't remember then you're probably due for a thorough cleaning. In home cleaning can not do the job that your rugs need for longevity. Rugs need a thorough dry soil removal to keep them from breaking down. In home vacuums, no matter the manufacturer claims can not accomplish this. A professional rug cleaner with a rug dusting procedure can accomplish this.

What is rug dusting? Rug dusting is a process where a rug is laid upside down on top of some grates. A rug dusting machine gently beats the back of the rug and the dirt falls from the rug through the grates onto the floor. Then a vacuum with a beater brush is run over the backing. The rug is turned over and and then a pile lifter vacuum is run over the face yarn. This is all accomplished before the actual cleaning.

Dry soil can really damage a rug and have it not have the service life it could if the rug had been properly maintained. Dry soil can become trapped in a rug and when you walk across your rug the dry soil can move around and cut the fibers. Have your rugs cleaned annually to keep them looking their best.

You can drop off your rugs at our cleaning facility or have us pick your rugs up, clean the rugs and return them to you.

Rug cleaning annually keeps your rugs at their best

When did you last get your oriental or area rugs cleaned? Your fine furnishings should be cleaned annually. Rugs are always better to clean off site at a professional facility rather than on the floor in your home. Rugs can trap a lot of dirt. Dirt that is trapped in rugs can add up over time. Vacuum cleaners are not as effective on rugs as they are on carpeting. Wool fibers are not smooth fibers like nylon. The less smooth fiber can really hold the dirt and prevent your vacuum from doing a good job. Over time the dirt can build up in your rug and even add up to several pounds.

Dunne Cleaning Specialists does a thorough rug dusting before we clean your rugs. This removal of dry soil greatly enhances the cleaning and helps extend the life of your rugs. Rugs are cleaned and rinsed. Our 50 years of experience give s you what you need in a rug cleaner.
Call today we would love to clean for you.

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.
