At B&Y rug cleaning, we are passionate about rugs and want our customers to make the right cleaning decision. For most rugs, we highly recommend allowing us to properly service it in our cleaning facility (pickup rug cleaning). With the best state-of-the-art rug cleaning equipment, our facility rug cleaning process is second to none; and we want all of our customers to get the best possible care. Below, you will find information regarding why our pick-up cleaning is superior to any in-home cleaning service.
However, we understand that some customers simply need their rug to be cleaned at their home. For this reason, we offer an affordable in-home rug cleaning service too. While our in-home service simply can’t match the thoroughness of our pick up service, it is a great alternative for synthetic rugs, or rugs that cannot be taken to our rug cleaning facility. For a comprehensive area rug cleaning service, call us for more information.
Most rugs fall into two major groups, fine rugs (handmade, antique, Oriental, Persian, Wool, silk), and inexpensive synthetic rugs (Derclon, polypropylene, and other synthetic blends/materials). The recommended cleaning process that we use depends heavily on your rug type: premium rugs should almost exclusively be cleaned using our pickup service; while synthetic rugs are able to be cleaned in-home.
One of the most important rules of fine rug cleaning is not having your rug cleaned in your home. While in-home rug cleaning is perfectly acceptable for some industrially manufactured synthetic rugs, it is not acceptable for handmade antique rugs, such as Oriental rugs, Persian rugs, or Turkish rugs. If you would like to have a common area rug cleaned in-home, we will gladly service it at your residence if it can not be done at our facility.
Due to a lack of knowledge and specialization, many carpet cleaning companies that also service rugs do so using techniques that are really only intended for synthetic carpets. Foam, Bonnet, Shampoo, Steam, and Dry cleaning techniques were never intended to be used on fine rugs, and even some synthetic rugs, and the damage can be severe.
In-home rug cleaning, using improper carpet cleaning techniques, can cause varying damages on a fine rug, but the most common issues are:
