When they first come to pick up the silk area rug they inspect it, to determine if there are any preexisting conditions. And to figure out what will be the safest methods to use, for effectively cleaning the carpet. After the rug is taken to their shop, they use a CRI approved vacuum on it. This will remove any soil and dirt particles that are deep inside of the fibers. Then a machine is used to gently beat the silk area rug. And any extra particles of dirt left on the surface will drift downward off of the carpet.
The next step in the cleaning process is the color fastness test, this checks for any dye migration or color bleeding. Which is more commonly found amongst fine silk area rugs and wool area carpets. This test will help them to decide which methods of cleaning to take, so that they can avoid any running of the colors.
There is a special solution that will be used on the rug, in which to treat the removal of pet stains and spots. It helps to increase their chances of removing the stain without doing any damage to the silk area rug. Then there is a wool safe solvent applied to it, that will dissolve and emulsify left over dirt prior to the cleaning process.
After being cleaned the area rug is then sent through a pre-drying process, in which to remove the moisture. Ninety percent of the added water is removed in just a few minutes. Then it is put through a finishing process, to dry the moisture which is left. This is done in a special drying room that is made specifically to handle delicate silk area rugs.
In some instances there is need for additional restoration to be done on the rug. For instance it might need to be patched, weaved, re-fringed or re-dyed.

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.
