Persian rugs are increasing in popularity in modern homes and apartments because they offer many advantages over traditional< carpet. They can easily be removed for cleaning or laundering, their thick weave is more resistant to spills and is less likely to absorb dirt and dust, and they offer more options for decoration since they can easily be changed, replaced or rotated to fit the decor. Best of all, if you are renting a home or apartment, you can take them with you when you move – leaving the underlying floor clean and ready for the next occupant, and saving you big on the return of your security deposit.
The problem is that Persian rugs, especially fine antique ones, must necessarily degrade over time. Although they last longer than carpets, they will inevitably wear, especially when placed in a high-traffic area such as a hallway or living room. The most common problem is that a “track” will wear through the middle or along a side where people walk most often as their feet trample down the fibers and dig in whatever chemicals and dirt are on their feet. This can get particularly bad if the rug is walked on with shoes (which pick up a lot of dirt from the outside) or wet feet (which can promote mold growth).
As such, when a rug begins to degrade, it will need to be restored in order to retain its appearance and longevity. Some of the basic restoration can be done at home, as well as preventative cleaning and rotation. Rugs can often go for decades between full restorations simply by being rotated so that the same “path” is not walked on for more than a year at a time. However, once the pattern begins to fade or the fabric begins to wear or tear, it is time to all Green Choice Carpet Cleaning for a professional restoration.
High level restorations involve replacing damaged fibers as well as removing chemicals and stains accumulated over the years. Increasingly, the primary function of rug restoration is not just to repair and replace fibers, but to remove stains and odors that sink into the rug over time. This is particularly the case when dealing with pet odor or stains left by pet urine and feces. This is a careful and involved process best left to professionals like Green Choice because also specially trained technicians have the skill set for this job. At Green Choice we not only have a staff trained for Persian rug restoration but our own rug cleaning factory for cleaning and restoration. Once Green Choice completes the restoration, the rugs will look and smell like new, and be ready for many more years of service.

After our pet had an accident on our rugs we called Green Choice to remove it and the stain. The rug was off white and the stain ruined the appearance. After Green Choice was finished the stain we gone and the rug looked great. I thought we would have buy a new rug but Green Choice saved our rug for a very good price. They provided a great service and I recommend them highly.
I needed to have an Oriental rug cleaned after a few years of sitting in my living room. It was dusty and few food and drink spills on it. Given the price I paid for it, I check around for a service with good reviews and settles on Green Choice. A plus is that they also give free pick up and delivery. I got the rug back in a week and it looks great. No dirt and no stains. Great job of Oriental rug cleaning Green Choice.
