Can I Dry Clean My Carpets?

Carpets and rugs can get DIRTY.  We walk all over them and even if you implement a no-shoes policy, people’s feet and socks are not always free of dirt and grime.  It’s important to clean all your carpets, but having your wool rugs and carpets dry-cleaned is essential to ensure that they are cleaned properly and not damaged in the process.  Oak Neck Cleaners is here to help explain why!dry cleaning service near babylon

Allowing us to dry clean your carpet or rug will ensure that it is sanitized properly.  Allergens build up in the fibers of carpeting, which can make your home unpleasant for family and guests!  Dry cleaning gets deep into the fibers of your rug and removes any dirt and debris that has become embedded.  We use a multifaceted process that simply can’t be achieved by at-home cleaning methods.  Steam cleaning can damage your rug, hot water can cause rugs to fade or shrink once they dry.  Dry cleaning requires no water, so there’s no risk of mildew or dust mites thriving in a damp environment after the cleaning process is complete.

Wool is found in many rugs and carpets due to its durability and the level of comfort it offers.  It is naturally resistant to dirt and debris.   They’re e non-toxic and don’t offer environments that promote bacteria growth.  That means you’ll want to take good care of it and have it cleaned regularly to keep it in good shape for years to come!

Having your carpet dry cleaned is also a far more environmentally friendly option than trying to use harsh chemicals at home.  Depending on the level of dirtiness, several different options are available.  One method is to use a large cotton bonnet that spins quickly to offer a deep and thorough clean.  All the dirt and debris get absorbed by the cotton bonnet.  Another dry-cleaning option is to spray a non-toxic foam directly into the carpet.  Lastly, a machine can be used to brush a substance that looks like wet sawdust into the carpet.  The dirt will cling to it and once the rug is dry, it is vacuumed to remove any gunk as well as the sawdust-like material.
