Very Good Work, Very Clean Rug! | Five Star Customer Reviews Greenwich, CT

Five Star Customer Reviews for Rug Renovating

Very Good Work, Very Clean Rug!

A friend recommended Rug Renovating and I'm so glad she did. They picked up two Oriental rugs for cleaning and on one rug they are doing some reweaving also. The rug that has been returned looks very good, they were able to get it very clean. The gentlemen who picked up the rugs were on time, very courteous and professional. It is great when a company shows up when they say they will. Their customer service was excellent. I can easily recommend them because of this one experience with them.

The Ultimate Fall Cleaning Checklist

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, Oct 03, 2019 @ 11:52 AM

When the days start getting shorter and your thoughts turn to sitting around the fireplace instead of standing around the outdoor grill, it's time to invest a weekend on fall cleaning.

AdobeStock_70868104

Some elbow grease now will make Christmas entertaining easier and keep your home safer and more secure, too. These five important autumn chores will help get you prepared for winter and save you from having to play catch up during those short winter weekends when there never seems to be enough time or energy to get things done before it gets dark outside.

1. How to clean cobwebs
It's spider season! That means one thing for your walls, ceilings, and any other crevices that these eight-legged creatures can possibly find their way into - cobwebs.

Grab a long feather duster, and start up-high, swiping over walls and ceilings. Don't forget the corners of the room, and also around light fittings (you may need a ladder for this).

2. Get your windows sparkling clean
As the heating comes on in Autumn, condensation often appears around the windows. It's important to give frames some TLC to prevent them becoming damaged from excess moisture.

Outside windows typically have more dirt and stains. Start by rinsing the windows with the hose, then fill a bucket with clean water and add a few drops of liquid dish soap. Using a soft microfiber cloth, go over the surface of the window. For higher windows, use a sponge mop (or a soft cotton or microfiber mop) on a pole. Rinse thoroughly with the hose. Although it may seem like an unnecessary chore, you'll be amazed at what a difference clean glass makes to the amount of natural light in your home.

3. How to clean skirting boards
Once you've done a thorough dusting around the house, it's time to turn your attention to another, often-neglected area - skirting boards.

If you keep on top of your skirting boards, they won't need anything more than a quick once-over. Our favorite way to do this is with the vacuum. Pop a soft brush attachment on and gently vacuum over them.

If you have allowed your skirting boards to gather dust, you may need to wipe them over with a slightly-dampened microfibre cloth too.

4. Autumn is a great time to clean upholstery
It's officially home-cinema season. Make sure your surroundings are cosy and clean by giving upholstery a refresh.

If your sofa is smelling a little strange, we like to vacuum over upholstery using a soft brush, then sprinkling baking soda over the area. Leave for 15 minutes, then vacuum once more to leave your living room furniture looking and smelling lovely.

However, if you want a really thorough clean, it's best to call in a professional.

5. Refresh your carpets and rugs
A carpet cleaner's equipment provides results far superior to anything achievable with a DIY method. They will be able to really get into the pile of the carpet, removing germs and debris that aren't visible to the human eye.

An expert rug washer’s in-plant rug cleaning facility is highly recommended for the cleaning of Oriental and loose woven rugs. They should not be cleaned on location like your wall to wall carpeting.

You spend major time indoors when the weather gets cold, so the more you do now to clean and arrange your space, the more pleasant it will be to hunker down for the duration when the weatherman starts talking about frost on the pumpkin.

Define Your Space with an Area Rug

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, Sep 19, 2019 @ 11:28 AM

Most homes today are built with the idea of “open concept” where one room flows seamlessly into another. This can make it hard to define the individual areas of your home. You can define your space with an area rug and still have your rooms transition smoothly from one room to another, here is how.

AdobeStock_93779237

Your Entryway
When your entryway doesn’t have a foyer you can easily create the illusion of one by using an area rug. You can find a rug that contrasts nicely with your flooring, make sure it is made of durable material. If you want to build on the space add a small bench or chair.

Your Living Room
Homes today have much bigger rooms than they did in the past and with open concept homes it is hard to put together a conversation area that is intimate and inviting. An area rug can help create this space, put down a patterned rug it will draw the eye from the big open spaces and it will help make your room feel warmer and cozier.

Your Dining Room
Homes today have also really moved away from the traditional dining room, you can use an area rug to create a dining area. When you don’t have walls or a light fixture to define the dining area you can put something durable underneath your table and chairs, it also needs to be big enough that you can comfortably push your chair back when you leave the table.

High Traffic Areas
Using area rugs on high traffic areas can serve two purposes, it can define the traffic patterns in your home and it can protect your flooring. If you put down heavy duty or washable rugs in the foyer or in front of your patio doors you can extend the life of your carpet or existing floors. It also defines where one room ends and where another one begins.

The trend for the past two decades has been open concept design both with renovations and new construction. Using an area rug makes your space warmer, it helps you transition from one room to another. If you live in a rental property then an area rug is an affordable way to add color to your room without making drastic changes like painting. You can find affordable area rugs for every area of your home online. There are thousands of interior design ideas using area rugs on Pinterest. Use the area rug to define your style and make your home your own.

Where Germs Are Hiding in Your Home

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, Aug 22, 2019 @ 12:25 PM

The amount of germs that share our living spaces might come as a surprise to many. Microorganisms are ever-present in our environment and in our bodies, and many are known to be beneficial — or even essential — for our health. Germs may accumulate easy but ridding them from a home simply requires some regular upkeep.

AdobeStock_180862940

1. Carpet
Bacteria thrive in moist environments, so why are there a lot of microscopic critters in carpet? Germs such as E. coli flourish there, thanks to the crumbs that make up an endless food supply. Regular vacuuming will help. Our recommendation is a professional carpet cleaning.

2. TV remotes, telephones and video game controllers
What do you do when you're sick? You jump in bed with the TV remote. Clean these regularly with a disinfectant wipe to banish flu and cold viruses.

3. Coffee tables
Like to put your feet up after a long day? Odds are you're sprinkling salmonella, campylobacter and other fecal bacteria on your coffee table. So consider leaving your shoes at the door.

4. Towels, linens and pet beds
Up to 30 percent of people unknowingly carry staph bacteria on their bodies, and a portion of those carry a drug-resistant and sometimes deadly strain called MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). All linens should be washed weekly in hot water and dried in a hot dryer. And don't forget a high-heat cycle in the dryer for the family pet's bed, which is also a hotspot for MRSA.

5. Nightstands
Nightstands can be a breeding ground for bacteria. Some people eat in bed and the spilled crumbs, along with irregular cleaning, give bacteria the time and food they need to flourish. Other people may be wiping down the nightstand with the germy sponge used to clean the bathroom. Clean nightstands frequently with a clean, damp cloth.

Cleaning up Spills and Pet Stains

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Thu, Aug 08, 2019 @ 11:47 AM

The beauty and life of your rugs and carpet depend on the care they receive. Normal life comes with some spills and pet stains. Proper cleaning will keep them looking great for their full lifetime, help improve your indoor air quality and will keep your carpet's warranties intact.

1. Whether it is wine, coffee, kool-aid, urine, paint or whatever, the first step is to remove as much of it as possible from the rug or carpet- as soon as possible. For instance, paper towels or a white washcloth will work well. Keep blotting until you have got as much out as possible.

2. After blotting, many spills will require diluting. If it is clear that much of the spilled substance is still in the rug, dilute it with water (assuming that the substance is water-soluble)- as much water as necessary. That may mean a half cup for a small spill or it may mean a quart of water for a major spill. Don’t get the rug sopping wet unless you need to.

AdobeStock_147459966

Above all, please note that some rugs have unstable dyes that may run if you put water on them. But they are a small minority of all rugs. Sometimes you simply must take a chance.

3. Now back to blotting. Get as much out as possible.

4. If the carpet or rug has become wet in the process, you do not need to panic. Still, you will have to manage the wet rug and promote drying. If the rug is quite wet, you may have to elevate it to promote air circulation under it. You might just stuff some wadded up newspapers under it. You may wish to place a fan on the rug to circulate air.

5. Do not use spot removers on Oriental rugs that are formulated for use on wall-to-wall carpeting. They will harm the wool pile of your rug.

In conclusion, if the rug is still stained after all your efforts, consider taking it to a professional rug washer as soon as you can. Or if it was your carpet that was stained, it is time to call an expert carpet cleaner.

The Silver Washing Process | Rug Cleaning Repair Restoration New York NY

Posted by Paul Iskyan on Wed, Jul 10, 2019 @ 03:26 PM

We were contacted by a good client of ours, who is a designer. This large 15 x 17-foot rug belonged to a client she was doing some designed work for. The client loved the rug but wasn’t happy with the colors in the rug and wanted to have them toned down, IF, it could be done.


We performed what is called a SILVER WASH where with the application of chemicals and 180-degree water we reduce the stronger background colors and try and produce an overall gray, muted appearance.

In this particular rug we were VERY SUCCESSFUL!! The client and the designer were thrilled. The Silver wash process is expensive but the cost to replace a perfectly great rug was going to be in excess of $15,000.00.

The Silver Washing Process

You know the saying, “don’t try this at home”. We are the only company in the country that has the equipment and know how to do this type of work.
