Rug Cleaning

Rugs can be an expensive investment and should last for years if they are properly cared for. There are different styles of rug manufacture, such as hand made and factory made. Hand knotted rugs are high in value and also known to hold lot of dirt which may not be easily removed by vacuuming alone. These solid particles are very abrasive and rub against the fibres, eventually doing considerable damage and devaluing the rug.


At Chem-Dry Assist, we specialise in cleaning all types of rugs:

  • Dhurris
  • Orientals
  • Persians
  • Hand Knotted rugs
  • Deco Rugs
  • All other machine made rugs
  • Kelims

We all love our pets and they are an integral part of our life. But having pets may effect your rugs. Particularly noticeable are urine odours or just pet smells. At Chem-Dry Assist we provide a through cleaning process using a special solution which breaks down urine crystals, eliminating the odour.


Rug Cleaning steps include

  • Free onsite assessment and quote
  • Pre-inspection to determine the best cleaning method.
  • Colour-fast test to check for the possibility colour runs.
  • Dusting the rug to remove soiling.
  • Thorough vacuuming to remove loose dirt.
  • Pre-spotting soiled patches.
  • Stain protection treatment (optional extra).

Rug Protection

Chem-Dry Assist recommends Solvent-based protection for hand made rugs such as Dhurris, Oriental, Persians and Kelims and water-based protection for all other types of rugs, mostly machine made. Stain resistant protection helps to maintain the condition of rugs between Sparkle factory cleanings. This is done in the home or office with the help of a can of spot remover.




How do I take care of my fine rug?

With proper care, Oriental rugs can last for generations. We recommend using rug padding to help protect rugs from wear, dirt and slippage. Rugs should be professionally cleaned at least every one to three years, depending on the amount of traffic, environmental conditions and soil.

Vacuuming your rug regularly will remove harmful grit and loose soil. If your rug is fringed, be careful to keep the vacuum off the fringe to prevent damage. For antiques and flat weaves, it is preferable to use a carpet sweeper instead of a vacuum cleaner.


How can I spot-clean my rug?

If a spill occurs, try to take care of it immediately. Carefully blot up spills using clean white tissues, napkins or towels. Be sure to blot only – do not rub. Rubbing can cause permanent damage to the rug fibers.

Test an inconspicuous area for colorfastness before you try to clean your rug with a cleaning agent.

Pretest the spot removal formula in an inconspicuous area of the rug. If the dye bleeds, have the rug professionally cleaned.

Do not over wet the rug. Work with small amounts of formula and blot frequently. Work from the outside of the spot toward the inside.

Be patient since some stains respond slowly. And remember, haphazard attempts at cleaning may result in permanent stains.
