How to store an Area Rug? Let us give you some quick tips to proper area rug storage...
There are a couple common misconceptions we here at Greenway run into on a regular basis. Unfortunately, sometimes these myths are propagated by under trained or poorly informed third party vendors. It's too bad because the people who lose out are clients who run into problems later on!
A quality hand knotted rug, if properly serviced, can last decades. But sometimes rug edges or fringes can be damaged by wear or the vacuum cleaner...
Here at Greenway we've been cleaning wool area rugs since 1993 and have seen and cleaned all types, styles, and sizes of rugs.
If you have purchased a tufted area rug with a glued on fabric backing, chances are it may have a foul smell, like burnt rubber or gasoline.
"Pooling' and 'watermarking' are forms of pile reversal that can change the appearance of both wool and synthetic carpets. This is a very aggravating problem that can occur in any carpeting at any time in the carpet's life.
The bleaching power of chlorine bleach is much stronger than oxygen bleach (commonly known as hydrogen peroxide) and can damage many fibres such as cotton and wool very quickly.
Stain guards are not ‘bullet proof’ but they give us a fighting chance of rinsing those tannic acid spills out with little to no damage to the carpet.
Carpets today are designed to hide dirt and they have the ability to resist stains. The dirt in our carpet cannot be seen as easily as it can on hard floors.
