Whether your area rug is a handmade masterpiece worthy of a spot in the Louvre or simply a fabulously functional piece of your home’s decor, its cleaning is best left to a professional. Here’s why:
Is your rug’s weave hooked, braided, or hand-knotted? Is it made of wool, silk, cotton, or a synthetic fibre? Which methods will clean each type of material and weave most effectively? Is it safe to use certain cleaning products on my rug? If you’re not sure of the answers, or why they matter, don’t worry: at Aquamist, our area rug experts have travelled all over North America in order to learn from the best rug manufacturers, restorers, and cleaners in the business. That know-how means your rug gets the very best of care.
Professional Grade Equipment
Even in lower traffic settings, area rugs take a lot of abuse. Plus, they naturally trap dirt, dust, and other allergens in their delicate fibres. While regular vacuuming and spot cleaning of your rug are important components of a maintenance routine, a professional cleaning, using top of the line equipment, is the best way to extend your rug’s life and keep it looking its best.
At Aquamist, we are the only company on Vancouver Island with a Centrum Force full-immersion bath and centrifuge. This revolutionary system delivers a powerful, yet gentle cleansing cycle that brings the art of traditional hand-kneaded carpet cleaning into the twenty-first century. First, your rug is submerged in 1200 gallons of gently circulating water, deeply cleaning each of your rug’s fibres. Then, the centrifuge spins your rug at 900 RPM, quickly and effectively extracting excess liquids and any remaining impurities. Once dry, your rug will get the pampering it deserves, receiving a full grooming with only the best brushes and combs.
When you combine expert know-how with the best cleaning equipment in the business, you get a rug that is vibrant, refreshed, and reinvigorated. In fact, the results are so amazing that you may not even recognize your rug when it’s returned to you! Plus, our team of rug care experts can re-fringe frayed edges and provide advice on how to best restore damaged rugs.
