Most homeowners can appreciate the beauty of their rugs and upholstery. However, few fully understand the intricate craft which goes into making them. The construction of rugs or upholstery begins with the choice of fiber, such as wool, silk or blends. These fibers can then be woven together in a multitude of ways. The weave will determine the strength and softness of the fabric, and its appearance. The fibers and weave will also impact how the rug and furniture should be cleaned. As a homeowner, there is no need to concern yourself with all these variables. Instead, you can call on the fiber experts at Carpet Cleaning Pro Boulder for professional cleaning.
Professional Rug Cleaning in Boulder
If your rugs are starting to show signs of dirt, then they are already overdue for a cleaning. By this point, even a strong vacuum will not be able to get out the dirt since it is deeply embedded into the rug fibers. The dirt is not only bad for the appearance of your rug, but it also is unhygienic. Along with “dirt”, rugs will trap grease, oil, dust mites, pet dander, smoke, and allergens.
What to Expect
When you call Carpet Cleaning Pro Boulder for rug cleaning services, our technicians will first ask you a series of questions about your rug(s). These questions will help us to give you an accurate estimate. If you are unsure how to answer some of the questions (such as the age or type of rug), don’t worry. Our experts will assess the rug when they arrive at your home. For lightly-soiled rugs, we can clean them on-site. For a deeper cleaning, we take the rugs back to our facilities to be cleaned with our special MOR rug cleaning machine.
All rugs are inspected in detail before they are cleaned. An expert will determine the rug material, weave, and dye type. The expert will then decide on which approach to use for cleaning the rug. A small section of the rug is always tested before we commence. This ensures that no damage is done and that dyes in the rug will not fade or bleed.
Our rug cleaning process varies, but it typically involves
1) Mechanical dusting and simultaneous vacuuming removes about 79% of all dry particles
2) Each side of the rug is cleaned with specialized detergents
3) Rinsing to remove particles
4) Rug is fed through special MOR machine at least 2 times and then rinsed
5) Rug fringe is groomed
6) Rug is dried in a humidity and temperature-controlled room
7) Inspection to ensure the rug is as clean as it possibly can be. If it isn’t, we will repeat one or all of the steps again.
Professional Upholstery Cleaning in Boulder
Like with rugs, upholstery is already overdue for cleaning by the time you start seeing signs of filth. For all the dirt you see on the surface of your furniture upholstery, there is actually much more embedded deep in the furniture. This dirt is particularly difficult to remove with DIY methods because furniture cushions are so absorbent. Further, much of the debris is from skin oils, which are sticky and attract other debris. When you call Carpet Cleaning Pro Boulder for upholstery cleaning, you can count on us to get your furniture looking beautiful and hygienic again.
What to Expect
Before calling Carpet Cleaning Pro Boulder for a free estimate, please take a look at your furniture which needs cleaning. Note how many pieces need cleaning, the level of dirtiness, the size of the furniture, the thickness of cushions, and any prominent stains. We will ask you questions about these matters in order to give you an accurate estimate.
Most of our customers have their upholstery cleaned at the same time as they have our professional carpet cleaning. It is amazing the transformation your home can go through when we are done with these services! However, you can also call for just upholstery cleaning.
Depending on the type(s) of upholstery you have, we may use methods like hot water extraction, deep shampooing, and/or sanitation. Usually wet methods are preferred over dry upholstery cleaning as they are more effective in getting dirt out from deep within upholstery. It takes about 1 hour to clean a typical sofa and 4 hours for it to dry. Our team is equipped with top-of-the-line extraction tools though which are capable of suctioning out the majority of water from upholster. All of the organic-based cleaning products we use are safe for children and pets, so you don’t have to worry about any harmful residues.
