Case Story - Dealing with a Stained Rug
Stained rugs are not a pretty sight, and can be greatly off-putting for homeowners and their guests alike
One time a client called us to seek our help for cleaning his Persian rug which had become quite stained over time. The client was quite vague about the types of stains but kept on saying that the rug had become quite dirty and required immediate attention.
Since our team had no idea regarding the stains that would be dealing with, they gathered all of the supplies that would be required for a thorough rug cleaning. Our team reached the address of the client in about half an hour’s time. The rug had all kinds of stains on it, and was looking in quite bad shape. There was a lot of dust on the rug as well, which suggested heavy use. Our team learned from the client that the rug hadn’t been cleaned before and had been in use for over a year or so.
Having realized that job of cleaning the dirty rug they had on their hands was a difficult one, our experts decided to approach it in a systemic manner. They first decided that the rug had quite a lot of dust on it which needed to be removed before the stains on the rug were dealt with. After a thorough vacuuming session, the next step was to identify the different stains that were present on the rug and decide which stain remover would be the right choice for removing each of those stains.
Most of the stains that were on the rug were not that serious and did not require much time to remove. One stain was recognized as red wine – and this was the newest one, apparently from the night before. The customer confirmed, but we calmed him. He was a bit worried about the products we were using, but we calmed him down as we were using environment friendly cleaning products that won't harm the rug's texture or fibers. It sure took a while, but after we thoroughly dried the carpet, it looked just like new. Even we were a bit taken by this "before and after" make-over, and client was really pleased. The secret for keeping your carpets and rugs clean aside from regular vacuuming, is taking care of stains the moment they appear. Otherwise, the stain will sink and stick to the fibers. In such cases- give us a call. We'll take care of your carpets, rugs, and upholstery for you!
