I had a client come in one day and tell me story.
It started early one morning when she got up.
It was still dark out.
The street lights from outside lit the inside of the house enough to navigate without turning any lights on.
But not enough to see details.
So when she stepped on her wool area rug she didn’t see that the spot she stepped on was wet.
But she could feel it.
The squishy feeling between her toes was unmistakable and so was the smell.
Immediately she knew one of her pets had an accident during the night.
This was not the first time it happened.
And certainly would not be the last.
But what would be the last time that ever happened to her was the disappointment she received when she got that fine rug cleaned.
She thought how it got cleaned didn’t really matter.
So she went the economical route.
And hired an inexpensive carpet cleaner.
Someone who said they could come to her home and clean it right away.
At first it seemed like a good idea.
But after a couple of weeks it was clear.
Her decision to get a carpet cleaner to clean her fine wool rug was NOT a good one.
The rug looked clean but it didn’t feel soft anymore and the smell of urine was still there.
And that’s the thing about hiring carpet cleaners to clean your area rugs.
They cannot do a thorough job.
There is no way they can offer you guaranteed pet odor removal.
That can only happen at a company that specializes in cleaning area rugs.
A company that can properly and thoroughly remove the urine from your rug.
A company like Luv-A-Rug.
At Luv-A-Rug we have specialized equipment for cleaning fine area rugs.
Equipment we actually developed and sell to the entire rug cleaning industry under the brand name of RugBadger.
Plus we only ever use Woolsafe cleaning products so your wool fibers never get damaged.
Carpet cleaners on the other hand typically use chemicals meant for synthetic fibers that are too harsh for your wool rugs.
Luv-A-Rug also knows how to clean your rug without making the colors bleed.
The number of carpet cleaners who have ruined a rug’s colors with their hot water extraction equipment are too many to count.
I could go on and on but I think you get the idea.
When it comes to your area rugs…
… carpet cleaners in Victoria BC cannot properly clean a fine area rug in the owner’s home.
Especially if it has a pet accident.
- They don’t have the proper equipment.
- They don’t have the proper training.
- They most certainly do not always have the right insurance.
So next time one of your pets has an accident on your fine rug…
…make the right decision and bring it to a company like Luv-A-Rug who specializes in cleaning area rugs.
