LA rug owners could be forgiven for thinking this huge city’s regular “donations” of grit, sand, pollen, fungal spores and other mementoes are specifically designed to destroy their rugs. After all, how else would a perfectly clean, brand new rug turn in to a virtual sand mine over a year or so?
Cleaning a rug, particularly a good rug of a larger size, can be exceptionally hard work. Worse, it won’t really fix the problem of the added materials. DIY cleaning of a rug can do only so much. If you steam clean, shampoo, and vacuum your rug for a decade, however, you still won’t get to the real problem – Impacted materials. These things are literally tangled in the fibers of the rug. Unless properly cleaned, they’re immovable.
While they’re there, though, they destroy fibers, literally cutting through them, and help high traffic parts of the rug turn in to flattened areas. Fungal spores and pollen can make life pretty difficult for people with allergies, too.
The answer to this problem is simple: Professional cleaning.
Fortunately for LA people, there’s a rug cleaning specialist company over near Thousand Oaks which offers a full scale, complete cleaning service.
To give you some idea of what’s involved in a full clean:
• Assessment of cleaning issues
• Checking for color fastness
• Full immersion in an appropriate cleaner
• Spot cleaning where required
• Reducing of pH levels in the fabric to prevent damage from cleaning detergents
This is basically restoration work, as much as cleaning. It is necessary, and it will also add years to the life of your beautiful rug.
Now the good news – They serve the LA area, and they can clean any kind of rug. If you need silk rug cleaning in Calabasas,Oriental rugcleaning in Santa Barbara, or Persian rug cleaning in Santa Barbara, just talk to them. (They also have a delivery and pickup service in north LA, another useful service.)
