Rug Cleaning Miami Area

Summer is officially here and the “Snowbirds” are back in Florida. We are getting busier by the day. Our technicians are putting this enormous rug up to hang properly. When it was picked up, it was one dirty rug that had to also be treated for pet stains and urine.  As you can see in the picture, this rug was huge so it took more than 2 technicians to unload it, wash it and properly dry it. Once the rug was properly washed, the next step was final details and then delivery. Upon the delivery, the owner called us to say how pleased she was with the end results. Just because this rug took more time to clean didn’t mean that we’d put all the other rugs to the side. Our technicians give each and every rug that special, one on one care.

Our 9 step process has been proven to be very safe and effective because we never use hot water, heavy machines or chemicals to wash your rug. Once your rug has been picked up, it arrives at our plant and gets photoed and tagged. Upon that, it’s taken to the back to get properly dusted. Next, is to apply a color block so that the colors in the rug do not run. Upon washing and rinsing the rugs, it then goes into a large roller where the water gets rinsed out. After that, it goes into the centrifuge so that all the excess water is extracted safely. When that process is completed, our technicians put the rug in the sun for natural heat and then it’s taken to a temperature controlled room for drying. Once it has passed inspection with our quality control department, it is rolled up and put in a safe storage shelve so that when we call you to deliver the rug back, it’s guaranteed to be in better looking condition from the time that we picked it up.  If you would like more information, please give us a call. Don’t be persuaded by a company who doesn’t even own a plant, they’ll try to steam clean your rug at a cheap price without informing you about the risks you are taking.

Guarantee Odor Removal Process Boca Raton

Hello world, from the desk of oriental rug care we are crazy busy with rugs today as usual.  It is amazing how many modern rugs come in these days compared to the older more traditional rugs.  What seems to be the trend these days in South Florida is anything that has shag on it weather it is wool or some kind of new synthetic material, yes shag like what was popular in the 70’s!  The funny part of this trend is that Oranges, blues, lime green, and the other color from the era are all in style but this time is isn’t wall to wall carpeting it’s just rugs in different sizes and shapes.  Of course white flakoti’s are still very popular especially if you live in a modern space or in a condo by the beach.  We joke at the plant that white rugs keep us in business, our company is the leader in making these rugs look new.  Traffic patterns, kolaide stains, wine, and any other stains is not a problem for us in a solid white rug.  We have created a formula and system to clean this type of rugs that gives us the best results possible.  Our company does do wholesale work from big companies down here, I want say they bring us all there rugs, mostly the challenging rugs.  The ones they know are susceptible to color run, also that need the guarantee odor removal process, and of course and always the white shag rugs.  If you should ever come by our shop you would be amazed to see how many trucks are pulling in and out of our plant, that is why we have two people to expedite the process of checking in rugs so  our customers don’t spend to much time just waiting around.  Plus let me continue to be honest with you we lack parking spaces so we really need to move the whole sellers out of the way because there vans are so big.

Our first passion is dealing directly with the customers, we love it when we get to greet new people in our shop and here stories about there carpets on how they acquired it and also to here how far people have driven to get to our shop.  Thank you for reading this blog

However, you could also find them in other colors such as brown, black, or tan.  Alpaca rugs come in a wide variety of different shapes sizes, colors and thicknesses. If you are thinking about purchasing an alpaca rug, you have many choices so you are sure to choose the one that matches your furniture and decor best. Alpaca rugs come in a wide variety of colors and design patterns, there is definitely one that will fit your style. If you do find that one of your alpaca rugs is stained, try using some powder or cornstarch. Take the powder or the cornstarch and brush it across the surface of the rug.  If you’re not confident about using this type of method, the best thing for you to do is to contact our professional rug cleaners.

In our 28 years of being in this profession, we have seen our fair share of alpaca rugs come in for cleaning.  We especially love the feel and look of these precious rugs.

Another favorite rug of ours that is routinely brought in for cleaning is the Flacoti rug. The meaning of Flacoti is, “A Greek woven woolen rug with a thick loose pile.” The true Flacoti rugs are traditionally handwoven of wool in Greece, then soaked in water to fluff up the fibers. They were very popular rugs in the 60s and 70s and still are now in the 20th Century. Keep in mind that most Flacoti rugs shed daily and mat up too, so it should be both raked and vacuumed at least twice a week to keep it looking good. Black soled shoes will leave dirty smudges that won’t vacuum out. It has to be professionally washed and this is where we come in. Alpaca and Flacoti rugs look very similar but are made from two different animals.You’re probably asking yourself, “what is the difference between sheep wool and alpaca wool?” Well, just in general, alpaca wool is softer, lighter in weight and stronger.

Rug Repair for Damaged Rugs

There are also rugs that were bought because they complement the room perfectly. Sometimes, the cost of rug repair is also considered because there are restoration companies that charge exorbitant fees, thus discouraging owners from going ahead with the repair. Practical owners usually choose to buy a new one instead. This does not always have to be the case. There are rug repair companies that do not charge so high. All you need to do is take the time to research.

Wool Rug Cleaner Boca Raton: The Plus Sides and Draw Backs of Wool

Wool rugs are stain resistant but only up to a certain point; they can absorb meat juice and other protein-based stains. It is then essential to keep food away from the area where the wool rug is located. In addition, wool also tends to absorb wine, coffee and tea. Another plus side of wool is its ability to resist fire. Synthetic rugs can burn and melt, unlike wool which would only scorch. Therefore, wool rugs are a better choice for areas near a fireplace or kitchen, and are recommended for homes that have smokers. On the other hand, Rug mildew removal in Boca Raton will be necessary when you have a wool rug because these fibers are natural humidifiers. Wool can absorb and release moisture, making them ideal breeding grounds for mold and mildew.


 

Aside from its great insulation capabilities, wool rugs also repel dust mites which can cause allergies. Surprisingly, wool can also keep static charges, especially in warm weather. Hence placing a wool rug near a computer is not a good idea. These rugs cannot be used in high traffic areas even if wool is known to be durable.

Sisal Rug Cleaning Boca Raton: Essential Tips That You Can Count On

Nowadays, there are different fibers being utilized in the production of rugs. This includes hemp and jute. But compared to these, sisal fiber is the most durable. It came from the Agave plant that is widespread in Brazil. Sisal rugs are inexpensive, fire-retardant and environment-friendly. It also adds a unique texture to any room. In addition, sisal rugs suck up allergens and absorb noise. Although these rugs do not require much maintenance, sisal rug cleaning in Boca Raton is also occasionally needed.

In order for you to maintain the beauty of your floor piece prior to hiring an expert cleaner, listed below are some tips:

  • When a liquid is spilled on the rug, blot it immediately using a dry cloth.

There are fabric products that can be used on sisal rugs. Some manufacturers actually apply them on the rugs while they are in the factory. The good news is that rug owners can apply a fabric protection in their own sisal rugs. This has to be reapplied once in a while because its effectiveness is lessened with regular wear and tear. Just like other rugs, sisal rugs tend to curl up as a result of wear and tear and foot traffic. The simple solution is to moisten the curled area and place some weight on it overnight. The curl should be gone by morning. For rug deep Cleaning in Boca Raton, it is advisable to hire expert cleaners to prevent possible shrinkage.
