Rugs come in an assortment of varieties, sizes, shapes and materials and can be used to cover a cold floor, to add a colorful accent to a room or to protect flooring or carpeting in high traffic areas. Professional rug cleaning can help maintain vibrant colors, get rid of stains, and preserve rugs for long term use. To clean a rug, a professional rug cleaning service will employ an array of tools and techniques specially suited for the job. The tools and detergents will penetrate the fibers on the rug, eliminating allergens, stains and soil which can make colors appear dull.
Rug Steam Cleaning
Rugs can quickly gather dust and dirt, especially with daily use. Vacuums can pull up some of the dirt and soil but they don’t get rid of soil, odors or allergens that can become trapped in the fibers. Technicians use steam cleaning machines which spray pressurized hot water, loosening the particles that can’t be eliminated by simple vacuuming. The machine then uses a powerful vacuum to pull everything out of the fibers. The steam cleaning machines work in conjunction with detergents which deeply sanitize the rug without leaving any harmful residues. The steam cleaning technique allows for the rug to be cleaned aggressively without doing any damage.
Rugs tend to become stained quickly and easily, especially when they’re located in high use areas. Stains can make a rug appear to be ruined, but they don’t have to be permanent. People have tried using chemicals or solvents, only to discolor or damage the rug. Professional rug cleaning services employ technicians trained to use the latest equipment and cleaning agents without discoloring or damaging stained rugs. By using a combination of steam cleaning machines paired with gentle solvents and detergents, stains are broken up and can be removed from rug fibers and layers.
Rugs are made from a number of materials, and many of those materials can trap odor molecules. These molecules can become caught in the fibers in rugs. Rugs can capture odors from a variety of sources. These odors can remain trapped in the rug even after vacuuming or cleaning by other methods. Professional rug steam cleaning services implement an assortment of tools and techniques to gently but effectively eliminate the trapped molecules causing the odors to remain in the rug. The steam cleaning machines deeply penetrate the fibers in the rug and, in conjunction with detergents, can rid the rug of the strongest odors.
The fibers in rugs can act as a trap for a large variety of allergens. Especially in dusty areas or places with pets. The rug fibers and threads catch and hold on to allergens, even when being vacuumed or cleaned regularly. Professional steam rug cleaning can improve the environment where the rug is located by greatly reducing the number of allergens trapped in the rug’s fibers whether it’s dust, pollen, dander or animal hair, leading to improved air quality in the home or business. Regular professional steam cleanings can preserve the integrity, colors, health, and beauty of rugs.
