Why Need Professional Cleaning for Pile Rug?

Professional cleaning for pile rugs is essential to maintain their appearance, longevity, and cleanliness. Over time, dirt, dust, and debris accumulate deep within the fibers, and make it challenging to remove with regular vacuuming.

Professional cleaners like Heirloom® Rug Cleaning have the expertise and specialized equipment to effectively deep clean pile rugs. Beyond cleaning, we also take necessary steps to eliminate odors and prolong the life of the rug. We ensure your rug remains beautiful and functional for years to come.

High Pile Rugs Cleaning

High-pile rugs are characterized by their longer, plush fibers that create a soft and luxurious texture underfoot. These rugs add warmth and comfort to any space but require specialized cleaning techniques to remove dirt and debris trapped within their dense fibers.

Cleaning expert Heirloom® Rug Cleaning, we conduct gentle yet effective cleaning methods, such as handwashing and air drying for high pile rugs. We ensure thorough cleaning without damaging the delicate fibers of high-pile rugs.

Low Pile Rugs Cleaning

On the other hand, low-pile rugs feature shorter fibers tightly woven into the rug's backing, resulting in a flatter and denser surface. Low-pile rugs are generally easier to clean than high-pile rugs.

However, they still require professional attention to maintain their appearance and integrity. At Heirloom® Rug Cleaning, we use state-of-the-art equipment and eco-friendly cleaning agents to clean these rugs without causing damage or color fading.

Highly recommended! I had an oriental rug that had been used in a public setting for 25 years and had only ever been cleaned on-site. It wasn't needed any more so I decided to try to get it cleaned properly so I could take it home. They did a fabulous job of cleaning and repair (new fringe and binding), so worth the cost, it now looks new.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Value We had a very good experience with Greg at Heirloom Rug Cleaning. We mistakenly used an improper cleaning solution on our wool rug and he was willing to take on the job.

I absolutely loved how clean my rugs were after Heirloom Oriental Rug Cleaning had them. My two very expensive silk on silk carpets are so soft and the colours are so vibrant now!
