Beginning the Cleaning Process
Dirt is your rug's enemy. Loose dirt particles become trapped in the fibers of your Oriental rug. These particles not only dull your rug's appearance, but they also damage the fibers. Soil and dust actually cut the individual carpet fibers, thus reducing the life of your rug.
Removing Dirt Particles
A pile lifter and vacuum is used to remove as much dry soil as possible.
The rug is then sprayed with a preconditioning agent and shampooed with Oriental Rug Shampoo.
The next step is to completely rinse away all contaminants along with the cleaning solution. The rug is also hand groomed to ensure perfect lay of the fibers and to promote even drying.
We then hang your rug to dry in our controlled atmosphere drying room to ensure the best drying conditions possible.
Once dry, your rug undergoes another inspection to ensure complete and proper removal of all debris and spots.

It will help resist spills, staining and ultraviolet radiation, all of which dull the appearance of your upholstery.
Pet odor is a very common problem. From minor problems to major headaches We can help find that solution that works best for you.
In many cases our normal cleaning process is all that is needed to correct minor pet problems. The powerful rinsing action of our cleaning system can effectively remove urine from carpet fiber.
The problem with pet odor is that it can be much deeper than it first appears at first. Pet urine can easily soak through the backing of the carpet into the padding underneath. In more severe cases the urine can penetrate into the sub-floor beneath the padding. This creates a problem that is multi-layered.
The urine also provides for the growth of bacteria. This in turn contributes to a worsening of the odor problem and can contribute to permanent colour loss of the carpet fiber.
To eliminate this problem the urine must be removed or neutralized from each of the layers effected. If the contamination is limited to only the face yarn of the carpet then the cleaning itself may effectively remove the odor. In more severe cases a urine neutralizer may be applied.
In the most severe cases, replacement of the carpet padding, treatment of the under-side of the carpet and the sub-floor may be required. Even replacement of the carpet, however, can not guarantee complete removal of the odor.
Left untreated over a period of time pet odor can become absorbed into many of the porous materials in your home. Draperies, sheet rock, upholstered furniture, base-boards, even the concrete foundation are just a few of the materials that can absorb these odors.
At Durrer Carpet Services we offer a range of solutions to help you with your pet odor problems. In the long run, however, it may be more a matter of proper maintenance instead of total elimination. After all, we love our pets and want to keep them a part of our family. Pet ownership adds to the challenge of maintaining a clean and healthy home. We can help you meet those challenges.
Please note that when cleaning urine spots, there is a difference between cleaning the urine soiling and treating for odor. Cleaning existing urine spots MAY NOT remove any associated odor. In fact, it could increase the odor in the air space for a temporary period of time.
Pet urine can cause permanent damage to your floors and fabrics. It can also create an unhealthy indoor environment. When urine is first deposited onto a floor or fabric, it is in an almost "neutral" state which means it is easier to remove when it is fresh. Once it dries, it turns "alkaline" and becomes more difficult to remove. If left for days or weeks, depending on the fabric or floor type, it will permanently change the dye structure, therefore causing permanent staining. Even if the soluble deposits are removed, the damage to the dye structure may already be done.
This means that no one can guarantee complete removal of all urine spots. Please consult with your technician if you have questionable urine spots on your carpet.
To prevent permanent staining in the future, clean urine spots immediately by blotting with a white terry cloth towel or plain white paper towels until no moisture is transferred. To clean the spot, mix 1 part white vinegar to 2 parts water and massage (don't rub) into the spot with a white terry cloth. Once you have "flushed" as much of the urine out as possible, blot with dry cloths until dry to the touch. Do not use over the counter, general spotters or extraction detergent. If you do not use this formula, ask us about special pet spotters.
