Tucson Oriental and other fine area rug cleaning and maintenance
Oriental rugs and other fine area rugs are an excellent way to enhance the décor of your home. At Aladdin, we specialize in the cleaning and care of fine rugs here in Tucson. Your prized rugs should only be handled by professionals with the proper training.
The key to successful rug cleaning is to clean it by hand. Hand woven rugs should not be cleaned with powerful pieces of equipment; they should be carefully washed by hand and dried as quickly as possible. Proper cleaning of an oriental rug cannot be completed overnight.
You should allow about 7 to 10 days for the process to be completed. Please read about the process below to gain a better understanding of what is involved.
We want to make the process of cleaning your oriental rugs as painless for you as possible. Therefore we will make an appointment to come to your home and to inspect them. We will discuss with you what the process will be to clean them for you. We can also give you a good idea of the results to expect.
In order to protect the quality of your oriental rugs, we will start by removing the dry soil. It is easier for soil to be hidden in them than you might realize.
Next we pre-treat the rug in be able to remove all of the stains and debris. The pre-treatment is designed to break up the elements of the dirt so we can remove it without causing damage to your rugs. If after pre-treatment there are any remaining stains, we will treat the spots with specialized cleansers that can remove just about anything no matter how long it has been on your rugs.
Once the spots are removed, we are ready for the shampoo cleaning. Shampoo cleaning is designed to get all of the materials clean without causing damage to the sensitive fibers found in woven rugs.
In preparation for drying, we carefully lay the rug out flat and transfer to our hanger for drying. Hanging and fast drying is important for oriental rugs to prevent them from shrinking during the drying process.
Once dry, we comb it with soft roomers that are used only on specialty rugs and conduct a final inspection to ensure there are no remaining problems that need to be fixed before we deliver them back to your home.
We guarantee that you will love the way your oriental rugs look when we return them to you. Here are some great tips that will help you keep them looking as nice as possible between cleanings:
Rotate them – you want your woven rugs to wear evenly so rotate them about every six months in high traffic areas. Some people can do it only once a year if it doesn’t get stepped on frequently.
Vacuum them - too many people assume that woven carpets are to sensitive for the vacuum cleaner but they aren’t. This will help to keep them clean and it also helps to keep the fibers looking alive so your rug isn’t dull lying there. If you have fringed edges then use the hose part so that the beater bar doesn’t suck that area up and ruin it.
Padding – It is a good idea to add a piece of good quality padding under it. This will also prevent people from slipping as they step onto it.
Clean up – Should there be anything spilled on your oriental rugs you want to clean it up as soon as you can following the process below:
Blot the liquid to absorb as much of it as you can. Avoid rubbing the area as that can lead to staining. Use a mild soap mixed with vinegar and water. Only add enough to take care of the problem as you don’t want to get these types of rugs too wet. Continue to blot it until you get as much moisture out as you can. You want to dry it quickly so try to place a fan over it. You can also use a blow dryer on low heat to get it dry in less time.
If you have a stain that you can’t get out on your own, just call us. We can get your oriental rug looking as good as new again.
