Oriental Rug Cleaning in SW Florida – Don’t Let Kids on Commission Fool With Your Rugs.

Wool area rug bled by an inexperienced carpet cleaner.

Many people spend years searching before finding just the right Oriental area rug to fit their home.  When it’s time to clean their beautiful textile, in many instances, they are playing a “cat and mouse game” to select the right Oriental rug cleaning company who will care for their area rug without using harsh chemicals and whose technicians are experienced in area rug cleaning.

We’ve all heard the horror stories of carpet cleaning companies and rug cleaning plants ruining a treasured area rug because they simply didn’t have the experience or certification to care for expensive textiles.

Valuable, handmade rugs should only be cleaned as needed, by hand, and it’s best to have a professional do the job.

A rug can cost several hundred dollars or tens of thousands of dollars.  Even a rug with a value of a few hundred dollars; you don’t want to replace it due to someone else’s negligence. You want to get good use out of it.

Typically made of wool, silk, cotton or a blend of natural fibers, Oriental rugs vary widely in the materials and dyes used to make them, so they respond differently to various cleaning methods. Never trust just anyone to clean your valued area rug. A professional should test your rug to ensure the proper cleaning method is used and you should never allow your area rug to be cleaned in your home.  A thoroughly exhaustive cleaning can only be performed in a rug cleaning plant.

At Oriental Rug Salon we receive area rugs from all over the world. A lot of the rugs we clean are hand-knotted, one-of-a-kind or antiques so significant care has to be taken to ensure that the rugs are cleaned and restored to the highest standards possible.

Due to improper cleaning, we’ve seen area rugs that have shrunk, bled, twisted and ruined by inexperienced carpet cleaning companies or consumers who read online that they could clean their area rug in the driveway.  We’ve saved hundreds of rugs from rookie mistakes, and believe me, we’ve seen some doozies.

As specialists in Oriental rug cleaning and repair, our expertise and services are relied upon by rug collectors, insurance companies, interior designers and even carpet cleaning companies who have or had issues with an Oriental area rug.

Recently we were asked by a local carpet cleaning company to help reverse color bleeding caused by one of their technicians.  The technician used a non-approved cleaning solution on a client’s $10,000 Persian Tabriz area rug.  To add insult to injury, the carpet cleaning company was going to charge their client $100 to surface clean the area rug and the cost to the carpet cleaner to have us save the rug was $2500.00.

A professional cleaning can cost between $200-$800, depending on the type and size of the area and the work being done.
