Area Rug Cleaning
There are many types of area rugs that are made of many different types of fiber. They vary in cost when you buy them depending on whether they are hand woven, hand tufted or made by machine and material that they are made of. At AFC, we offer area rug cleaning services for all types of area rugs.
You can drop them off at our office on Linebaugh Ave. or we can schedule to pick them up. For very large rugs we will even clean them in your home.
We start by thoroughly vacuuming the rug on both sides in order to remove as much dry dirt as possible. We then pre treat the area rug using a solution that will not cause the colors to bleed and emulsifies the dirt. We then agitate the fibers and rinse the rug neutralizing the pretreatment solution. After this, we do a final rinse and inspection to make sure that all stains that we can possibly remove are removed.
Some stains that cannot be removed are dog urine, drinks with red dye and some types of coffee stains.
The best way to prevent stains from occurring is to immediately clean the spill. The best way to address spills is to absorb all the spill using lots of paper towels. Continue blotting until all the liquid is removed and then using diluted dish washing detergent and a clean white cloth gently work the diluted dish washing detergent into the fibers. Using paper towels blot the area until dry. If the spot still remains repeat the process until the spot is gone. If you are not successful and it dries a stain will occur so be persistent.
Additional services that we offer include scotch guard, fringe cleaning and deodorization.
