The Eureka company did a study several years ago and found that a 9-by-12 foot rug can hold up to 87 pounds of dirt! Regular vacuuming and surface cleaning remove only the top layer of dirt.
The Rug Spa at J&S Steamway is Anchorage, Alaska’s best Oriental rug cleaning and area rug cleaning facility. We use state-of-the-art, top-of-the-line equipment and solutions to restore your Oriental rugs and area rugs back to their original clean and healthy condition:
- Free pickup and delivery of most Oriental and area rugs. Please call to discuss details.
- As part of our pre-cleaning inspection, one of our certified technicians identifies unique qualities of the rug and soiling to determine the best cleaning technique and describe the results you can expect.
- Because woven and hand knotted rugs are designed to trap and hide dry soil, dry soil removal is a key first step in the process; we use special equipment and techniques to remove dry soil from both the front and back of each rug prior to washing.
- Oriental and area rugs are pre-treated to emulsify remaining soils, help remove spots, and treat the fringe for optimum soil removal.
- Each rug is shampooed with a people-friendly, pet-friendly, environmentally safe cleaning solution deemed most suitable and safe for the rug’s natural fibers.
- We Alaskans love our pets! For rugs contaminated with pet urine, full submersion in our wash pool with specialized solutions provides the best chance at not only a clean rug, but an odor-free rug.
- All rugs are then speed-dried in a two-step process — a rinse and spin dry in Alaska’s only Rug Revolution, a centrifuge that removes 98 percent of the water, followed by drying with high-volume air movers and dehumidifiers in a temperature-controlled drying room that quickly removes the remaining moisture, eliminating the risk of mildew growth that is common with other rug-cleaning methods.
- If you are not completely thrilled with the rug cleaning experience you receive from us, we will make things right at no charge and no obligation to you. If you are still unimpressed, we will offer you a 100% refund.
