The first step when cleaning an Persian rug is to remove loose dirt from the fibers of the rug. This can be performed by beating the rug or shaking it to loosen and remove the dirt. Once the visible dirt is removed, cleaning technicians must focus on dirt that is invisible to the naked eye.
One important step in an exclusive 5 step Persian area rug cleaning process in NYC is to remove micro particles such as dust and dust mites from the rug before cleaning commences. Often, this step is neglected by other less reputable cleaning companies. Green Choice Carpet Cleaning, however, knows that these small particles can cause a great deal of damage in an Persian area rug.
The middle step in the cleaning process for an Persian rug is a mild washing that removes tough stains and loosens dirt even further. It is important that this washing step be performed after the bulk of dirt and dust has been removed. Washing too early can cause dirt to clump together, making it more difficult to remove. It is also important to use mild solutions rather than harsh cleaners with bleach or ammonia. These harsh chemicals can actually remove dye from an Persian rug.
Often, an Persian rug must be carefully dried to ensure that water spots don’t appear in the fibers of the rug. If the liquid is not allowed to dry evenly, the colors of the rug may be inconsistent. It is very important to remove all of the shampoo and cleaning chemicals from the rug before it is dried.
The last step in our Persian area rug cleaning process is often a post-treatment solution that will help the rug to repel stains. This makes maintenance easier for a rug owner to perform regularly. If a rug is treated with a stain-repelling chemical, liquids such as wine or soda can be easily brushed away in the future.
