What is Rendall’s Handcrafted Cleaning?

Rug cleaning is not the same as cleaning the carpet in your home. To properly clean an area rug requires specific knowledge of the rug construction and materials, dyes, foundation and fringe construction. An improperly cleaned area rug may be ruined by bleeding, shrinking, browning, fading, or even ripping, tearing, or shredding.

Therefore it is extremely important to protect your rug investment by properly maintaining them. Vacuuming your rugs often will help them last for many years. However, over time, your rugs will accumulate soil in the foundation that a vacuum can’t reach, and the rugs will need to be professionally cleaned. (Vacuuming Tip: don’t use a beater bar on your fringe as it may bind up and weaken or shred your fringe)

When you walk on a soiled rug, it is like rubbing sandpaper on the fibers…

Microscopic soil surfaces like sand, dirt, grit, and dried mud, are very sharp. If your rugs are not properly cleaned at the right time, meaning before they start to show soiling, they will begin to abrade and wear the fibers. When you walk on a soiled rug, it is like rubbing sandpaper on the fibers, making the fibers and foundation thinner and weaker. The longer the soil remains, combined with foot traffic, the more damage is done to your rugs.

…there is no such thing as One-Size-Fits-All when it comes to proper rug cleaning

As mentioned earlier, rugs are very different from installed carpet in your home. Additionally, there is no such thing as One-Size-Fits-All when it comes to proper rug cleaning. In fact, Oriental and area rug construction is often more like upholstery or tapestry than modern carpeting, and requires much more delicate cleaning. Oriental rugs are often handmade from wool, cotton, silk, and jute, which are much trickier to clean than synthetic carpeting. Because each rug construction is different, we custom-match the safest and most thorough cleaning  methods to each rug. All rugs that we clean here at Rendall’s are washed by hand to ensure full soil removal as well as close-up inspection and correction during the entire rug cleaning process.

We call this specialized process “Handcrafted Cleaning by Rendall’s”
