Area Rug Cleaning Portland

Area Rug Cleaning Portland

One of My Favorite Rugs

We love rugs! We see the beauty that rugs bring out in the Homes we visit for Rug Pick Up.

We clean All types of Rugs. We offer Help for Pet Urine Damaged Rugs.

Each rug is given individualized attention to determine the best cleaning process for your rug.

Properly cleaned area rugs (Not Cleaned in Home) can help to restore the life of wool rugs leaving them soft and bright, bringing BIG smiles to their happy owners!

With each area rug we get down and inspect the specific fiber, construction type, dye, and possible repair issues in determining the best process to clean your rug.

We have seen it all when it comes to Area Rug Cleaning Portland.

We have a process to clean your rug no matter if you have a special hand notted rug, ikea rug, machine made rug, flat weave rug, or a pet urine damaged rug.

Big rug shops use impersonal machines to clean rugs in a Bulk Cleaning Process. Bulk Cleaning is NOT OUR GOAL! Putting your rug through a car wash machine IS NOT the best process.

Most rugs get a Hands On Spa Cleaning process and others should only be surfaced cleaned (still a deep clean).

Our Cleaning process for Area Rug Cleaning follows time honored cleaning procedures combined with the latest chemistry and processes to remove harmful soil and rug odors.

Karastan Rug Cat Urine Treatment

Karastan Rug with Bad Cat Urine

Cat Urine Removal and Dog Urine Removal from wool rugs is our specialty.

Did you know…Dogs like to pee on wool rugs.
A funny story… My mom called and said the dogs keep peeing on three of the five rugs she has.
She didn’t understand why the dogs would only pee on three rugs and not the other two.
I told her that the most likely the reason the dogs pee on the three rugs and not the other two is because there is wool in the rugs they are peeing on.

I began to explain how her dogs think…I explained to my mom that her dogs think a sheep has come into their home and marked the three rugs in question. Now,of course the dogs have not seen a sheep, but they think, “Well, no sheep is coming into my home and going to show me up.” So the dogs start marking the rugs that have the smell of a sheep on them. The rugs in question turned out to be the only rugs with wool in them!

Rugs to Watch Out for Odor

Have you searched every inch of your rug with a black light and could not find an ounce of pet urine? Maybe you don’t even have pets so you wonder, “What is causing this rug to smell up my house?”

If your rugs has an odor and it is not due to pet urine then it is usually because you have a gun rug. Gun rugs are very easy to spot.

With a gun rug you cannot see the front pattern from the backside because there is cloth covering the back of the rug. In between the cloth and the back of the rug is latex that is sprayed with…Guess what? Latex! Now can you see why these rugs are called gun rugs?

Usually, the odor from gun rugs is caused by several reasons, including: bad latex, improper application of the latex, and other reasons. For all practical purposes and cost there is nothing that can be done to correct the odor.

Note: not all gun rugs will smell. Also note that there are other reasons why rugs can smell, but pet urine and bad latex are the two most common reasons for rugs to smell.

CAUTION: What I Have Learned

I have seen people put guns rugs over carpets and have disastrous results.

Here is how the story usually goes…You want to put a beautiful new area rug on top of the carpet in an area of your home.

Ok, but please make sure the rug does not have latex in the backing. Latex releases a gas called BHT that can over-time naturally causes irreparable damage to the carpet turning it yellow.

For example, the latex back on new shower mats is white and turns yellow over time. The BHT gas sometimes can also turn vinyl floors yellow.
