When was the last time you cleaned your Oriental rug? If your answer is “never” or “it’s been a while,” take a moment to consider all that has happened to your Oriental rug since then. Maybe your Oriental rug is located in an area with high foot traffic and it has collected several pounds of dirt. Or, if your Oriental rug is located in a dining room, it has likely endured food and drink spills.
Whatever has happened, it is probably time to enlist a professional’s help in cleaning your Oriental rug. Professional Carpet Systems Niagara specializes in Oriental Rug cleaning in the Niagara Falls area. Many people may not understand the difference between surface cleaning and professionally washing your Oriental rug. The expert skills employed by PCS Niagara can make a world of difference in the appearance and longevity of your Oriental rug.
Whenever something is spilled or a pet has an accident on your Oriental rug, what you see on the surface is only the beginning of the damage to the rug. Moisture will penetrate the rug, leaving lingering odors, stains, and potentially causing mold, mildew or dry rot.
Cleaning Oriental rugs is the only way to remove these odors and deep stains. At PCS Niagara, Oriental rugs are cleaned in a wash pit, allowing water to thoroughly clean and rinse your rug, penetrating deep below the surface fibers of the rug. Pets will sometimes continue to use the same area of the rug as before due to lingering scent, and the only way to stop this is to clean the Oriental rug in a wash pit to remove all odors that are trapped deep within the rug.
Mildew and dry rot should be a real concern to you if you own an Oriental rug in a humid area or in a room where a lot of moisture is present. Spills, as previously mentioned, penetrate below the fibers of the rug and to the padding and backing of the rug where it can remain for several days. Moisture often causes mildew to grow on the underside of the rug. If the rug remains wet, dry rot should be a real concern.
Placing plants on Oriental rugs is a common cause of dry rot. Avoid placing indoor plants directly on your Oriental rug, as the constant moisture leads to dry rot of your rug. Avoid putting anything that contains moisture on your Oriental rug.
Regularly cleaning your Oriental rug is the only way to ensure it maintains it’s beauty for years to come. PCS Niagara is fully equipped to handle cleaning Oriental rugs in Niagara Falls, and can help you keep your rug clean, free of odors and vibrant in color.
