Carpets and Upholstery Cleaning

Rug Cleaning

For over 30 years, we have been providing high-quality mitigation and restoration services to our customers. We are now excited to extend those services with our new state-of-the-art, in-plant rug cleaning system. Customers have the option to either drop off or have us pick up their rugs to transport back to our office where we begin the multiple-step cleaning process. The rug is placed in a rotating tumble duster to remove dust and other surface contaminants. Then the rug is rinsed and placed in a large rotating cleaning system to thoroughly remove the contaminants under the fibers. After that, the rug is placed in a tumble dryer and then hug up to complete the drying process. This system works for all types of rugs and even delicate oriental rugs. SERVPRO of Richmond and SERVPRO of Henrico embraces new technology in order to provide our customers with the best cleaning techniques in the business.

Preventative Maintenance

Carpets act as a filter, trapping dust, dirt, gases, animal hair, and other soils. All carpet manufacturers agree on actions you can take between carpet cleanings to increase the life span of your carpet.

IICRC states that 79% of soil in carpet is dry soil. Vacuuming is a key component to proper care and maintenance of carpet.
Preventative maintenance actions include: 
  • Regular vacuuming
  • Spot removal
  • Pilating the carpet to prevent matting
  • Moving furniture to change traffic patterns
  • Using walk-off mats to limit the amount of soil tracked onto the carpet

Professional Cleaning

Our professional cleaning can address moderate and heavy soil conditions in your carpets. How often you’ll need professional cleaning depends on soil build-up, traffic, type and color of carpeting. A good rule of thumb would be to professionally clean your carpet every 12 months. The best advice is to clean carpets before they become totally saturated with soil. If you wait until carpets look really dirty, the carpets may never be restored to their former appearance. Dirt builds up in layers, and when a carpet looks dirty you are only seeing the dirt at the tips of the fibers. More dirt is hiding below the surface down near the base of the pile, causing damage to the carpet. When a carpet is saturated with dirt, the soil has penetrated crevices and has become firmly lodged.

We will get the job done right. For a cleaning backed by state-of-the-art equipment, over 40 years of experience and Professionals trained to the highest standards, call us today.
