Off site cleaning is the preferred method of cleaning oriental and Persian rugs.

Rugs make an excellent addition to almost any home, adding welcome comfort and warmth. Of course, like carpets they have a tendency to gather dust, hair and general dirt after a while and can benefit greatly from regular cleaning. An experienced hand is needed to take care of this, since many rugs are fragile or have specific cleaning requirements. By their very nature, Persian and oriental rugs have many vibrant colours and the utmost care must be taken when cleaning them to avoid fading and leeching. In preparation for cleaning, a colour run test is performed on all colours to ensure your rug is safe to be cleaned.

How often should I clean my rug?

You should have your rug cleaned professionally every 2-3 years or when required. Those with young children, pets, or particularly busy homes may benefit from cleaning their rugs slightly more often. If rugs are not cleaned often enough soiling can become trapped in the base of the fibres and may lead to friction, causing wear on the delicate fibres and in cases causing them to be shed. Rugs can be beautiful pieces of fine art and deserve to be cared for properly. At Roffey Carpet Cleaning I offer a collect and return service at no extra charge, so work can be carried out without noise or disturbance to your home.

What is steam cleaning?

At Roffey Cleaning we have spent many thousands of pounds over the years on our equipment, and the device we normally use for carpet cleaning is our Hot Water Extraction (or steam cleaning) machine.

This machine pumps highly pressurised water deep into the pile, completely rinsing out the cleaning solution that has been agitated into the carpet. This removes unwanted dust, debris and bacteria, providing relief for those of us who suffer from allergies and generally creating a cleaner, safer environment wherever Hot Water Extraction is used.

Hot Water Extraction doesn’t just offer the best deep clean on the market, but it’s also environmentally friendly and very efficient. It won’t expose you to the chemicals that carpet cleaning techniques employed by other companies do, and it will have your carpets dry in rapid time, causing minimum disruption to your home or business. Of course this is equipment that is being used by highly trained and experienced professionals, so we can get the best results for you carpets. We can clean deeper into the carpet to leave them cleaner and fresher which can make a huge difference to your home.

The most common problem you run into with cheaper, DIY-style devices is over-wetting. Rental machines rarely have the vacuum suction power to extract all the water that is absorbed by the carpet. This can lead to unpleasant odours caused by bacterial growth, and when that happens you’ll need to get a professional in as soon as possible to avoid having to shell out for an expensive replacement. At Roffey Cleaning we get the job done properly the first time, and we offer much better value for money than cheaper cleaning companies who use inferior equipment.

How often do rugs need professional cleaning?

This depends on how much use they get. If they’re only used infrequently then it could be once every year or two. If they get a lot of use then a couple of times a year can be beneficial to keep out smells and bacteria.
