Oriental & Area Rug Cleaning
We clean rugs the same way they have been cleaned in the middle east for centuries, by hand washing them. At Personal Touch Carpet Cleaning, we understand the value of your rugs and tend to your rugs the way they deserve. We have specialized training in Oriental, Persian, and all types of area rugs and rug fibers. We are proud to be the only WoolSafe Approved Service Provider and Certified Rug Cleaner in York, Pa.
Rug cleaning is often overlooked since wool has the great ability to hide soil inside the fibers and knots. However, this hidden soil is very abrasive and cuts the fibers of your rug. In order to prevent this damage, it is important to have your rugs cleaned before they look soiled. Looking at the fringe is usually a good indication of when a rug is due for cleaning. Since the fringe is commonly made with cotton, it does not hide the soil the same way wool does. In addition, fringe is usually lighter in color which makes the soil easier to see. If the fringe appears soiled, the same soil is in the rug as well, it’s just not as noticeable. Some carpet cleaners use this to their advantage and bleach the fringe to give the rug a clean look while not thoroughly cleaning the rug itself.

The rug cleaning process is different from the carpet cleaning process. Personal Touch uses innovative carpet and rug cleaning techniques to clean your rugs. Some synthetic rugs may be able to be cleaned in your home, however, natural fiber rugs such as wool, silk or cotton are only cleaned at our cleaning facility. Personal Touch asks each customer about the style and origin of their rug so we can better understand the specific cleaning needs of your rug. Delicate rugs that were imported from overseas and most commonly made with wool and cotton are given a spa treatment with our 9 step cleaning process. Rugs that are especially soiled, have pet spots, or have been in a flood are first decontaminated in a special odor removal bath before continuing through the cleaning process. Once your rug is rinsing clear, excess moisture is extracted and your rug is laid flat or hung for drying.
When the rugs in the house are cleaned, Personal Touch makes sure that you are happy with the work that has been done. You called for a specific reason, and Personal Touch wants to know that the job was done correctly.
