What follows is a pre-inspection of the rug to check for any conditions including stains, spots, and odor. Our rug cleaning specialists will also examine the type of fiber to determine how to treat your rug. We use the best rug cleaning methods, combined with modern equipment and eco-friendly supplies to take care of your delicate rug. Our techs will also evaluate whether the rug has any structural damage.
To start the cleaning process, our specialists will dust it to get rid of any dust or debris that has been embedded in the rug's fiber. Proper dusting increases the rug's pile and makes the cleaning effortless. We will also vacuum your rug to remove any loose dirt and dust.
We will test your rug for color fastness and apply a dye-locking agent if there is a likelihood of dye bleeding or migration.
Depending on the type of rug, we will use the right cleaning products that will eliminate any stains or spots without damaging your investment. Immersion in our washing area will remove any dust and allergens on your rug. If your rug cannot go through submersion, we will use low moisture methods to clean it.
After rinsing the rug, we will take it to our rug drying chamber where it will go through a complete drying process. We ensure that the rug is completely dry to prevent any odor, mold, and mildew growth.
Once your rug is clean and dry, our team will drop it off at your premises.
While onsite rug cleaning may appear convenient, offsite rug cleaning has more benefits. Offsite rug cleaning is an ideal choice if you want your rug to be professionally cleaned without destroying your rug or the floors. By bringing your rug for you to our specialized rug cleaning facility in Fort Washington, we will ensure a more thorough wash that will give it a cleaner and brighter look. With offsite rug cleaning services, it becomes very easy to dust the rug and remove particles that may be deeply embedded in the fibers. Otherwise, dusting on-site may not completely eliminate the dust particles.
Our cleaning facility has separate cleaning areas for specific cleaning processes. The washing and rinsing areas have plenty of water to facilitate proper cleaning, which may not be the case with onsite cleaning. What's more, our cleaning facility has a separate dying area that will allow adequate drying time for your rug.
When it comes to the cost of cleaning a rug, Hippo Carpet Cleaning of Fort Washington considers several factors. The final rug cleaning price can depend on the rug cleaning method, material, style, and size. More often than not, the cost to clean a rug is greatly determined by its size. Generally, you can expect to pay more for a 96 square feet (8-foot by 12 feet) rug than for 8 square feet (2-foot by 4-foot) rug.
Another important consideration is the type of material. Rugs can be made of different materials and weaving patterns, and this will determine how best to care for them. Natural fibers like silk and wool require a lot of care and can be more expensive to clean than synthetic fibers. Besides the material, the style of the rug can also determine the cleaning cost. Generally, it costs more to clean Persian and Oriental rugs compared to Indian, woven, and flatweave rugs.
