So no matter what kind of Oriental rug you own, you can be assured Americlean's technicians will know just how to care for your precious textile.
Beginning the Cleaning Process
Dirt is your rug's enemy. Loose dirt particles become trapped in the fibers of your Oriental rug. These particles not only dull your rug's appearance but also deteriorate the fibers. Carpet fibers are actually damaged and cut by loose soil and dust that actually cuts the individual fibers, thus reducing the life of your rug. Our technicians remove these loose particles by using pressurized air.
Removing Dirt Particles
A pile lifter and vacuum is used to remove as much dry soil as possible.
The rug is then sprayed with a preconditioning agent and shampooed with Oriental Rug Shampoo.
The next step at The Steam Team's Oriental rug cleaning shop is to completely rinse away all contaminants along with the cleaning solution. The rug is also hand groomed to insure perfect lay of the fibers and to promote even drying.
In our controlled atmosphere drying room, we then hang your rug to dry to insure the best drying conditions possible.
Once dry, your rug undergoes another quality inspection to ensure complete and proper removal of all debris and spots. Our staff then hand-comb all fringes and use specialized tools to brighten them to their original shine and color.
