Rug Guru is a second generation service oriented business where our clients' concerns and needs are our first priority. We do all Rug washing work place. The choice of the proper cleaning system is extremely important. We professionally inspect the fabric and condition of the carpet or rug before making the selection for one of the methods available. We use exclusive Rug Cleaning Products, procedures and equipment to assure the highest level of cleaning performance. The newest technology we offer penetrates the soiled area that guarantees almost all kind of stains removal with deactivation of the odor.
Handmade rugs will collect dirt and dust over time. Rugs absorb pollutants from the air (from indoor fireplaces, cooking odors and pets etc.) and dirt from being walked on, by people and pets. This can result in dulled colors and damage to the structure of the rug. Fine dust trapped in the pile works as an abrasive when walked on, breaking the fiber and reducing the life span for your rug. It can be a gradual process but eventually some parts of the carpet will become noticeably more worn than others.
Washing rugs is especially important not just for appearances but also for the longevity of your treasured rug. Different types of rugs and carpets have different structures; flat woven kilims differ greatly from hand-knotted rugs. Some rugs have shorter piles while others have a thick shaggy pile. The materials used, wool, silk and cotton have their own requirements as do the dyes used to create the beautiful colors. The area it has been used in, the entrance, kitchen and sitting room are likely to be dirtier than other places in the house.
How often you vacuum also contributes to when your rug needs to be cleaned. You will know it is time to clean your rug when you notice your rug looking or feeling dirty or becoming dull and less soft to the touch. Regardless, washing for most rugs should be done every five (5) years as a basic cycle of maintenance. When it is time for your rug to be cleaned, we are experts in selecting the most appropriate materials and methods for cleaning your rugs. We handle with care every type of rug including hand knotted, hand tufted, machine-made hand-woven, contemporary, antique, durries, braided, kilim, modern, and oriental rugs. Your rug may be made out of a number of fibers, or blends of fiber, such as wool, silk, cotton, sisal, jute, leather, linens, and synthetic materials. Your rug may be Persian, Turkish, Indian, Chinese, Moroccan, Mexican, Tibetan, Afghani, Kashmiri or New Zealand made. At The Rug Guru we can handle and care for all your rugs. We can also look after your cushions, Sumacs, tapestries, bags and other related items or carpet
There are a variety of rug cleaning methods offered by general cleaners, such as steam cleaning, commercial carpet shampooing, chemical and dry cleaning that are designed to be used for commercially made wall to wall carpet. These cleaning methods are typically designed to use less water and dry quickly, which means that the job can be carried out in a short time at greater profit. These methods are not designed for handmade rugs and carpets and may cause your precious rug to fade or shrink. They are also likely to reduce the life span of your rug by reducing the natural oils in the fiber and damaging the structure of the fiber. Handmade rugs are made in time-consuming tradition ways and they deserve to be cleaned in the same manner to preserve them for future generations.
Hand-made rugs, antique carpets, Persian rugs, Turkish rugs and other delicate pieces should be left to the professionals. These types of rugs are too good to be mishandled and often cannot be replaced. We remove fine dust, debris, pet hair and soil from the rug. Select the appropriate cleaner based on the dyes used in the rug (artificial or natural dyes, vegetable dyes, mineral dyes, synthetic dyes), the type of fiber used and the construction method. This reduces the likelihood of dyes running (and blurring out patterns) and gives the fiber the sheen and colour it should have. Careful handling and drying ensure that your rug does not shrink and remains structurally strong. At The Rug Guru we remove all the dirt and dust from the entire rug without damaging the fiber or its colour. Your complete satisfaction is our standard.
