Area Rug

Protecting your  area rugs starts with proper area rug care in your home. If you want your rugs  to last a long time there are procedures that you should keep in mind. Starting  with vacuuming, every 3-8 months your carpet should be turned over and vacuumed  underneath using a beater bar attachment to loosen the dirt/grit and remove it  from the pile. Replace the rug and vacuum as normal. Avoid using the following  household products on or even near you area rugs as they WILL cause permanent  damage, and might only show up days or weeks later, or during a cleaning; among  the worst is Benzol peroxide most commonly found in acne medications it is  capable of destroying most dyestuffs. Its damaging effect may seem to appear  spontaneously for several reasons: a rise in humidity & the time between  contacts. Insecticides that are sprayed along baseboards can create a colour  change as well but only after cleaning!!! Avoid the following dye damaging  products near your valuable rugs; pool chemicals, dry bleaches, disinfectants,  fade creams, pesticides, plant food, dandruff shampoo, tile cleaners, chlorine  bleach, mildew fighters, glass cleaners and floor strippers. Many of these  products when spilled don’t show the effects until heat and moisture is applied.  In many cases the colour loss is permanent and expensive spot dyeing or repair  is the only remedy that may be considered.

Washing your rug  will replace moisture back to the wool which will revive the color and beauty.  You do have to follow a few instructions and guidelines so you can protect your  custom designer area rug or a family heirloom rug. The price you pay will  definitely be worth it with the end result.

At AAA we have been  cleaning area rugs in shop for over 20 years. We take the time and care to  properly treat your carpet, to maximize our end results. We clean 95% of loose  are rugs in shop, because it allows us the time to:

  • Fully inspect under our special shop lights
  • Proper pre-treatment of all spots & stains  with appropriate dwell time sometimes many hours.
  • Thorough vacuuming of front/back/front again
  • The choice of multiple cleaning options, depending on the type and material of the rug, and degree & type of soiling
  • Controlled drying with hanging bars, controlled  humidity, and air movement
  • A complete and thorough post cleaning inspection  to check for remaining spots, odours  and  any other drying issues
  • A final vacuuming of face yarns and rolled up  for storage till delivery or pick up.

Some rugs due to sheer size, or  due to large or permanent furnishings, wall units on them or at the request of  the home owner (who simply may not want to part with their rug) we do offer in  home rug cleaning, although some what less expensive then in shop cleaning, it  is far less controlled and the results are not usually as impressive as in shop  cleaning. There are also risks that must be considered when cleaning these rugs  in your home. One of them is if the rug is sitting directly on a hardwood floor  there is a chance that the flooring may be damaged, due to the hot water  extraction & chemicals causing the finish of the flooring to come off.

Staining on most natural fibers is the largest complaint when it comes  to area rugs. It is very important that spills be cleaned up as soon as  possible, as due to the nature of natural fibers they absorb and hold stains  much more then man made materials. Plus they are unable to withstand the high pH’s  of some of the strongest stain removers, so we are limited to what can be used.  The quicker you get us in the better chance we have to remove or reduce the  appearance of the stain or spill. Having your area rugs protected after our  cleaning is strongly recommended, although no protectant can stop or prevent  all stains, it adds a large measure of protection and can greatly minimize the  damage from spills, plus it allows you to vacuum up to 35% more soil out of your  rugs, as soil has a much harder time attaching it self to sealed fibers.

Dye  bleeding or crocking is another complaint with some types of area rugs. Kelims,  some Persians, and even some Orientals –dye bleeding can usually be prevented  but not always corrected, so if your carpet has been improperly cleaned, or  spot treated or even has gotten wet or excessively humid, dyes can run during  the cleaning or drying process. So please let us know if you believe that your  rug has been subjected to those or any other conditions that might affect its  dye stability.

We clean most area  rugs including braided, hand tufted, hand hooked, silk, Flokati, Navajo,  Carousel, and Dhurries – to name a few. We offer pick up and delivery through  out the Niagara Region.

Pricing starts from  only $1 per sq. ft. for most synthetic area rugs, to $6 per. foot for certain  silks and specialty rugs. Most wool Orientals are $2- $3 per sq. ft depending  on thickness and soiling. Extreme pet odours may require pit washing, which is involves complete immersion of the rug in our wash pit, this method is excellent at removing the odours. Immersion washing can add 50% to the price of the cleaning.

There is no charge to come out and evaluate your rug  for clean ability, and more thorough exam in shop prior to any cleaning under  our lights for any other conditions that might not have been spotted in the  home. If any other concerns are found, you will be contacted before we proceed  and if you choose not clean there is no charge to return the rug back to your  home.

We offer pick up and delivery services to St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, Fonthill, and Fort Erie. Trust your rugs with professionals.

…Very satisfied, the rugs have not looked this good since we bought them.
