Oriental, Persian, Turkish, wool and silk area rugs can vary in construction, condition and type of soil and spills found. For this reason, we wash cherished area rugs by hand, one at a time, to ensure that each rug trusted to us receives the very best care and cleaning possible.
Our Oriental rug cleaning process begins with a thorough inspection followed with a 24-hour dye test to determine if your rug will “bleed” or colors migrate. From there we use a specialized rug duster harnessing over 30,000 vibration strokes per minute dislodge even the most stubborn soil, dust-mites, and sediments trapped deep in the foundation of your rug. Our rug duster is unmatched for removing grit from thick or very dense rugs. Removing these contaminants and grit is truly critical to the continued health of your rug, as grit is very abrasive and cuts at the fibers of your rug, wearing away at them to reduce its life and beauty.
Do not be misled by claims of “hand cleaning” made by some Oriental and area rug cleaners and dealers. In many cases, what they actually use are rotary scrubbing machines, which can be far too aggressive and injure some rugs. Since our inception, our family has “hand washed” rugs from start to finish utilizing handheld brushes, which deliver the gentle mechanical action that is required and implied by the term “hand cleaning.” Our hand washing cleans your rugs down to the base of the knots, while surface washing used at many cleaners can leave soil and detergents injurious to your rug.
Tru Clean Surface Care uses very specific cleaning solutions based on the type of rug we are cleaning. Our solutions are gentle and environmentally friendly. We are specialists in pet urine and odor removal and our in-house rug specialist is certified by the world’s most respected certification body for textile professionals, the IICRC.
Once your rug(s) have been cleaned we have engineered a process with humidistat controls for safe and effective drying. Any other method of drying is not as safe. Inexperienced cleaners have a tendency to submit Oriental rugs to an extended drying time that is harmful to the rug cleaning process and can cause a multitude of problems, including color bleeding, shrinkage, and browning. Some believe that the faster a rug dries, the faster they can return it to the customer and collect their invoice. Our family will never rush the cleaning or drying on any rug.
Unlike larger facilities, ours is not a fully automated system like a car wash. Our hands-on approach allows us to intervene in the process at any given time to attend to a specific need and manicuring.
Your Oriental, Persian, Turkish and other wool and silk area rugs are cleaned at our facility, by members of our family. We never use contractors and we never take short cuts.
