FAQ’s

Do you clean the fringes on the rug?

The fringe on a rug is made from white cotton and stains easily. When we clean your rug we’ll also clean the fringe however it isn’t possible to remove the staining from the fringe.

Can you remove pet urine odours from a rug?

If the urine contamination is minor (the size of a dinner plate or smaller), we can clean the front and back of that section of the rug and treat the contamination with a product designed to dissolve the uric salts and kills the odour causing bacteria. If the contamination is severe then our results aren’t likely to be effective and we recommend replacing the rug.

This service will usually cost an additional $45 per contaminated rug

What is the cost of the Delicate Rug Cleaning Service?

This depends on the size of the rug and the level of care required. The delicate rug cleaning service starts from $150.
