“We actually don’t know much about the origin of rugs”
Many people are surprised to hear us say that we don’t know that much about rugs, i.e. origin, types of weave, etc. Our expertise is in the area of cleaning rugs, and that’s what we do know A LOT about.
Peter Linden is Ireland’s leading specialist in fine antique rugs, kilims and tapestries. If you want to know about the origin of fine oriental rugs, their history etc. Peter is the best qualified person that we know of.
Rugs have stories and memories attached to them. The interesting thing, from our point of view, is the value people place on their rugs. It is usually not a monetary value. I have seen people’s eyes glisten over as they spoke of how they acquired their beloved rug. Very often it was on honeymoon or a once in a lifetime foreign holiday. Rugs are different to carpets in that they sometimes take years to find. After all the searching, you finally find the perfect piece for whatever room or space it is. Therefore, they often hold a special place in people's hearts and people are understandably wary of giving them to just anyone to clean.
Rug cleaning to us in those circumstances is more than just a job. It is taking someone’s precious memories and restoring them to close to their former glory. This does put a certain amount of pressure on us to make sure the cleaning process is totally safe and correct.
One of the main reasons we take rugs to our rug cleaning centre in Donabate, is in order to be in complete control of all the processes of cleaning. We have, for example, a drying room which helps get the rugs dry in the shortest time possible. This helps to avoid colour run and also shrinkage.
Our cleaning Centre allows us to clean rug fringes which could not be done in the home. Bad odours may not remove with just one treatment. Having your rug at our place allows us to re-treat the rug as necessary. In actual fact, we clean almost all the rugs at least twice.
Vacuuming both sides of the rug is another benefit of having the rugs at our cleaning centre. As you can see from the video below, rugs can hold a considerable amount of dust and soiling. This is definitely not something you want done in your home!
This kind of care and attention could not be paid to your rug if we cleaned them in your home.In short the benefits of getting the rug takena way to the Rug Cleaning Dublin Centre are:· Complete control over the cleaning process which means rug cleaning SAFETY· Purpose-built drying room means shortest drying times, reduces risk of shrinkage· Time and space to treat and re-treat rugs as necessary· Vacuuming both sides of the rug releases a LOT of soil. You don’t want that in your home.
