The cleaning process we use involves a number of comprehensive stages;
Rugs kilims and carpets, including oriental and antiques, that are cleaned professionally especially with the Dolaplama technique are deemed to be much cleaner and healthier with the life span of the rug or carpet being increased.
We recommended that you have your rug cleaned professionally once every two years. To protect your investment it is also important to rotate the rug on the floor once a year so your rug gets equal amount of traffic and light so that it wears evenly.
The technique of Dolaplama allows for all foreign materials to be shaken off without causing damage or strain on your rugs and carpets. The rug or carpet is securely placed in the spinning cabinet and the action of the cabinet causes the carpet fibres to open slightly allowing the foreign particles to fall out. The opening of the rug or carpet fibres allows the carpet to regain its original softness and gives it more of a shine.
Note: This cleaning technique is not recommend for rugs or carpets that have worn out, decayed or that have been incorrectly repaired or restored.
To protect your investment and for your rug, kilim or carpet to last generations please call us to schedule a pick-up or for more information.
Why have your rug's cleaned by professionals?
Even though your rug looks clean, the normal settling of dust, dirt and grime is abrasive and will shorten the lifespan of all rugs, kilims and carpets especially antiques.
As carpets are used (walked on) they accumulate dust into the strands and fibres. With each person walking on the rug or carpet the dust and other particles are pressed deeper into the fibres causing them to become compressed and stick to each other. The material caught between the strands and fibres then accellerates the wear on th carpets and rugs.
Dirt, dust and foreign materials that are not a part of the carpet should be extracted without damaging the carpet. Domestic and commercial vacuum cleaners cannot remove all of the dust and foreign material and sometimes loosen the fibres of the carpet. This means that the lifespan of rugs and carpets that are only cleaned by vacuuming is shortened as a result of the remaining material.
