We estimate more than 70% of the rugs we wash are contaminated with pet urine. If yourrug has suffered a similar indignity, you can rest assured we successfully address this problem everyday. As long as we can clean the rug properly, we can sanitize it and the rug will be odor- free. So if your wool rug is so bad you don’t want to be in the same room with it, don’t throw it away. At least call us for aFree Cleaning Estimate.
The primary challenge with this contaminant is the absorbent nature of the wool and cotton fibers. Once urine leaves the body the pH changes from acid to alkaline. It dries as a crystal, somewhat like salt.If you ever hired a carpet cleaner to clean your rug you may have been dissatisfied with the results. It’s virtually impossible to do a thorough job using carpet cleaning techniques, cleaning agents and equipment designed to clean wall-to-wall carpeting. Some carpet cleaners recognize this. And some don’t.
We address the problem using Bio Based cleaning agents that are safe for use on wool, and deep clean the rug to thoroughly remove the contamination from inside and outside the fibers. The amount of time and effort required to totally remove the contamination varies with each rug. On occasion we have to wash the rug repeatedly to get it all out. But at Rug Ideas we are all about a little extra 'elbow grease' to make our customers happy!
Rug Blog is a wonderful way to communicate with those who care about rugs of any kind. In this blog, I, Khosrow Sobhe (Dr. Kay) write about my everyday experience with Persian, Oriental and area rugs, and the people that I meet and talk with. I live and work in Los Angeles, where I have a rug gallery. I love my job. It is full of excitement. I hope you enjoy your visit and share your ideas and comments with me.
