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. You may also be interested in booking our upholstery cleaning service at the same time as having your rug 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.
