Rug Cleaning in Leicester & Loughborough

Rug Cleaning Leicester

Rugs are a great way to add character to a room, and our specialist rug cleaning service will ensure they are always looking their best. We take the knowledge from our upholstery cleaning service, understanding your rugs fabric composition, to provide the best cleaning solution for you.

Oriental, Persian or Egyptian rugs are a costly investment. We can offer a full rug cleaning service whatever your requirements; we reach the base of your rug, improving its look, preserving its quality and lengthening its life and leaving it anti-bacteria treated.

NCCA Accredited Rug Specialists

SJS are specially trained by the National Carpet Cleaners Association on how to clean valuable Oriental Rugs and we regularly attend refresher courses on Inspecting Rugs, Rug Dusting & Beating, Cleaning Basics, Spotting, Special Treatments, Cleaning Procedures, Cleaning Challenges and Finishing.

Rugs should never be cleaned without different coloured yarns each being tested both wet and later when dry. The dry test is undertaken 24 hours later to make absolutely sure the colour won’t come off when dry – that is one of the reasons why your rug should always be professionally transported to our cleaning unit for detailed inspection and work to be carried out. Before cleaning, to achieve the best result, your rugs are processed through a rug beating machine to break down and remove the dry dirt from the base of the fibres.

Interestingly, the dirt retained inside the weave of a rug when removed prior to cleaning can result in a rug weighing a kilo or two lighter.

Collection & Delivery Service in Leicestershire

Cleaning of all rugs is a specialist skill which should only be undertaken by professionally trained people. To preserve the safety and integrity of your rug there is a professional requirement for dry fibre testing of each colour to be carried out 24 hours after we have carried out the wet test. This is why we will always take your rug to our rug unit to clean and restore. SJS provide a collection and delivery service to carry out these treatments in a controlled environment and bring it back to you looking beautiful and rejuvenated!
