Vancouver Carpet Cleaner Shares How Professionals Make Sure Chemical Treatments Don't Damage Heirloom Persian and Oriental Carpets

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - December 17, 2015) - As the Founder of Angelo's FabriClean, Angelo Di Pomponio is often contacted to provide emergency care for exquisite antique rugs. The latest article on his website reveals how his professional cleaners clean and protect these cherished heirlooms from potentially damaging chemical cleaners. For more information, go to:

Most Persian and Oriental rugs are made from wool, which can vary in terms of quality and grade. Generally, the trick to keeping them looking like new is to catch stains before they set.

If you own an antique Persian rug, you might not need any special cleaning solutions or chemicals. The finest, oldest carpets are typically made with a lanolin-rich wool that has natural repellent properties. If you're quick, it might be possible to simply blot messes away, but you still have options if it turns out a stain has set.

Even antique carpets over a hundred years old can be cleaned by a professional who knows how to analyze the material and determine the best treatment.

"When a rug arrives for cleaning, we inspect it closely to determine the right cleaners to use," explains Angelo. "Any dry or loose dirt is removed and the rug is preconditioned with properly balanced emulsifiers."

Spots are removed with gentle solution that works on common stains like wine, urine, tea, coffee, and juice. The rug then receives a special bath to dissolve any deep, ground-in soil. After cleaning, vacuum extractors are used to remove the moisture, and a neutralizer is applied to restore the original pH of the rug. The rug is then hung, so it can dry naturally.

"Antique carpets are delicate and can be difficult to care for, but with the support of knowledgeable professionals, these beautiful treasures can be cleaned and preserved for future generations."
