As you are searching for Area Rug Cleaning Oklahoma City, you will find they are a dime a dozen. It is hard to determine which one is qualified to clean and treat your precious area rugs. Area rugs are not cleaned like wall to wall carpeting. The delicate rugs must be cleaned in a specialized facility by an experienced and knowledgeable area rug cleaner. Having a carpet cleaner clean them in your home can lead to a damaged rug or even ruin the subflooring beneath it.
We received this rug from a technician at a local carpet cleaning company. He had simply steam cleaned it with just water in one of his customers’ homes and the dyes bled into the fringe. He explained that this is one of the services he offers and has never had a problem with it until now. The gentleman was confused as to why this happened. Our rug specialist explained that it could be one of a few possibilities. The first one could be because another cleaner might have applied a strong pH conditioner to the rug, but failed to rinse it out or neutralize it. When the rug became wet again, it activated the solution causing damage. The second reason could be because the bleeding might have occurred due to the excessive amount of dyes used while making the rug. Once steam and water come into contact with the dyes, they will migrate into other areas of the rug, including the fringe. The last possibility could be from over-wetting the area rug and then failing to dry it out properly. The longer the moisture sets in an area rug, the more damage can occur. It is important to note that an area rug must be cleaned at a facility designed specifically for rugs. Treating fine rugs like carpet can cause issues like color migration, bacteria growth, and odor. Finding an educated rug cleaning specialist is highly recommended.
At Executive Rug Cleaning we have experience in cleaning rugs from all over the world. Having an understanding is the key to cleaning oriental and fine area rugs. With 20 years’ experience we have gained a great deal of knowledge and determined which techniques work best in cleaning and correcting all kinds of situations. When area rugs are brought to our 6,000 square foot rug washing facility, the first thing we do is inspect and photograph the conditions of the rug to create a unique plan on how the rug will be cleaned. If the precious piece is in need of pet odor removal, it is documented and placed in a category of rugs with a potential dye situation. When an area rug already has a dye migration issue, it is placed in a category of rugs that need dye correction. We have been successful in preventing and correcting dye issues with numerous types of area rugs. Our customers have been pleasantly surprised by the results.
As you can see from the picture on the right, we were able to correct the dye migration in the fringe of this particular rug. The one good thing that came out of this situation was the gentleman from the local carpet cleaning company was able to return the rug to his customer with satisfaction. For us we educated a technician and gained a customer. He now brings his customers’ rugs to us to be cleaned.
