Proper, Safe Cleaning of Specialty and Antique Oriental Carpets & Area Rugs From Around the World
Sci-Tech’s Oriental Rug Cleaning Studio uses modern technology and chemistry along with time-tested methods to clean your most delicate rugs.
Oriental rug cleaning has come a long way over the centuries, and we have further perfected the practice. Sci-Tech cares for the finest to the most basic rugs from around the world. We will pick your rug up and bring it to our special cleaning studio where it will receive our very thorough Cleaning System to get maximum soil and spot removal. Having your rug cleaned in our plant allows us to give it several treatments for a more thorough cleaning, controlled drying, and the use of various tools that are not available on location.
As a testament to our skill and ability, we have earned the Certified Rug Specialist designation from the The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certifications. This prestigious certification is only given to professionals who undergo intensive training, including studying every aspect of Oriental and specialty rugs such as their history, cleaning maintenance, restoration and identification.
The first principle of area rug cleaning is: It should not be done in the client’s home. There are many different types of rugs, each with inherent problems when cleaning or washing them.
It is the wealth of knowledge in the minds of the Sci-Tech team that keeps your rug safe through the cleaning process.
Wool area rugs have a natural propensity to hide soil… vast amounts of soil. Going once over the top with a steam cleaner will make it look better… but it isn’t even close to being clean.
In fact, 90% of the allergens, sand, dirt, dust, dander, dust mites and their droppings are still in the rug! Having a rug cleaned in-home may at first seem monetarily beneficial, however that would be the only benefit. The rug would not only be receiving improper care, but may even be harmed.
It is understood that sometimes circumstances dictate cleaning a rug “on-location,” (under a billiard table), but it should be a rare exception rather than the rule.
This may seem like an inconvenience to a homeowner, however it is imperative for a proper cleaning to be done.
