At Fibre Tech Carpet Care Ltd, we offer a full concierge style area rug cleaning service for our clients in Victoria and surrounding areas. From start to finish, you’ll experience professional, experienced customer service that will have you coming back year after year.
Our area rug cleaning service begins with free pick up. If you’d like to have your area rug rolled up and ready for us at the front door, this will be a quick appointment. However, if you need some help shuffling the furniture off of it, our technicians are happy to assist with that.
Fibre Tech Carpet Care Ltd. is equipped with a large area rug cleaning facility where our experienced technicians will take their time assessing, treating and cleaning your area rug. Depending on the condition and what your area rug is made of, it can take anywhere from just a few days up to a few weeks to clean your rug, but we’ll communicate an estimated turnaround time when you book.
Why do area rugs take longer than wall to wall carpet?
Increased soil factor: Area rugs are designed to absorb and trap soil, which is why they’re a favorite for high traffic areas – they keep the rest of your house clean! In fact, by the time you start to notice that it’s time for them to be cleaned, they are actually quite soiled.
Fringing: Although it’s a beautiful addition to any area rug, it is a magnet for dirt and dust. Fringing is usually a natural fibre (often cotton) and needs to be cleaned by hand with a special solution to restore it to its former glory.
Fibre type: Area rugs come in a variety of fibres from Synthetic to wool, all the way to fine oriental silks. Most of these area rugs (with the exception of synthetic) have to be cleaned by hand to avoid damage to the delicate, natural fibers.
Drying: Depending on fibre type, we may need to accelerate the drying process of your area rug (by increasing air movement) or it may need to be hung to dry for best results.
As with all of our carpet cleaning services, we offer free estimates! All we need to know are the dimensions and what your area rug is made of. Not sure? Oftentimes there is a tag on the back with this information.
