Beautiful Rug Cleaning

By Cory | February 17, 2014

Here is a picture of a beautiful rug that came in last week. It is hand knotted from Kashmar. The curvilinear patter is very pretty. You don’t see rugs like this in the Macon area much. The vases are especially unique. This rug is in very good condition and should clean up nicely.

Rug Cleaning Tips

By Cory | November 21, 2013

Rug Fringe

Fringe comes in all different kinds of styles and fabric types. Today I want to address a common mistake we see people make with cotton fringes. Most hand made rugs have cotton foundations and therefore have cotton fringes. Sometimes people (and even “rug cleaners”) will apply bleach to cotton fringes to “brighten” them up. Well, bleach is not a cleaner. It poses no benefit to dirt removal from a fabric. Bleach is an aggressive oxidizer and causes great harm to natural fibers. Bleach doesn’t stop its action for quite some time so we often see fringes that are super white from someone applying bleach to them but they are also falling out of the rug. Fringes that have been bleached by clorox will eventually completely degrade away. You can usually tell if this has happened by gently pulling on the ends of the fringe. If they have been damaged by this oxidizer then it will just usually easily pull out of the rug.

So, today’s tip is to never apply bleach to your cotton fringes. This will harm the rug and degrade it’s value.

Often we see oriental rugs that have fugitive dyes caused by a high alkaline cleaning agent, pet urine or simply from a flood. This rug in particular come from a client in Macon, Ga and her pet had repeatedly urinated in this one particular area on her rug. After sanitizing the rug and removing the odor, we were able to began repairing some of the areas where dye bleeding had occurred.

Macon carpet cleaning and rug cleaning tips….

By Cory | December 5, 2012

Below is a picture of an area rug with damaged wool from oxidizers.  The rug (on the floor) is machine made on a Wilton weave.  Oxidizers are very harmful to natural fibers such as wool and cotton (both which are in most area rugs).  They break down the fibers over a period of time.  Here you can see that it has removed some color from the rug.  At a glance, it looks like urine spots from a pet.  Urine can have the same effect of color loss on a rug, carpet or fabric as oxidizers do if left unattended to for too long or if improperly dealt with.  In this case, the oxidizer that the rug owner used has removed some of the blue dye used in the rug and left the spot looking yellowish in color.  This is not fixable with cleaning procedures.  The color must be physically added back to the rug in an attempt to repair the damage.  So the tip is to stay away from oxidizers such as oxyclean, peroxide, etc on your natural fiber rugs and fabrics.

Macon Carpet and Rug Cleaning update

By Cory | February 8, 2012

Here is a quick update for all our customers for carpet cleaning in Macon and Rug cleaning in Macon and Warner Robins, Ga. We have been hard at work on a new rug cleaning studio. Thanks to your patronage and referrals, we have run out of room in our current location. We have recently been blessed to acquire another, much larger, space for oriental rug cleaning. In our current studio, once we get 3 or 4 rugs cleaned and ready for drying….we run out of space on the floor to clean rugs. It is the next day before we can move forward in the rug cleaning process. In this new facility, we will be able to continue working with rugs all day because we will have 400 square feet dedicated as a specialty drying room. We will have an additional 2,000 square feet for rug dusting, washing, detailing and grooming. We are so excited to have this opportunity to better serve our rug cleaning clients.  Here is a picture during the construction process.  The room on the right will be our state of the art rug drying room.  The room on the left will be offices.  We will still maintain our current drop off and pick up locations around middle Ga for your convenience.  And for your FURTHER convenience…..we are still including pick up and delivery to your home in our pricing structure!

Rug Cleaning Secret

By Cory | August 18, 2011

I’m going to share with you one of our rug cleaning secrets…..it’s how we get out ALL the dirt! There are many, many more processes that we perform to ensure that each rug is thoroughly and safely cleaned for our clients. But it all starts with removing that dry, gritty, odorous, abrasive and damaging dirt!


The pictures above show dirt we removed from a rug with our Rugbadger from one of our Macon Ga clients. See some of our earlier posts to see the Rugbadger in action. Just scroll down! Everyday vacuuming can never remove all the dirt accumulated in your precious rug over time. If this dirt is not removed from your rug prior to washing then it gets wet and washed against the cotton foundation yarns in your rug where it can get further lodged and cause damage to your rug. Our Rugbadger is one of the key ingredients to our oriental rug cleaning success.
