Area rugs that have been fabricated in locations such as Asia, Iran, China, India, Russia, Turkey, Pakistan, Tibet and Nepal are considered Oriental area rugs. These area rugs can use more geometric shapes in their design. However they can also have curvilinear or floral shapes as well. Oriental area rugs are rich in detailed design and can use several colours. They can be made of different material such as wool, silk or cotton.

Why Steam Cleaning?
“Steam Cleaning” is just a nickname for a method of carpet cleaning called “hot-water extraction.”
This is the preferred method of cleaning by major carpet manufacturers. In fact, some require you to use this service at least once every 12-18 months otherwise the warranty on your carpet can be voided.
This type of cleaning is widely considered the best method of removing embedded soils and contaminants in your carpet. Steam cleaning works by injecting a high pressurized solution into the carpet pile, then immediately extracts it with the powerful vacuum system. Most companies will apply a pre-treatment to break down soils, loosen oil deposits and remove spots.
After the cleaning, a protective coating can be applied to your carpet, most of the time for an additional cost. This coating is commonly referred to as “scotch guarding.” This phrase is also just a nickname. What is applied is actually a Teflon. It’s a good idea to have this reapplied, as the scotch guarding applied during the manufacturing process will only last so long.
If a truck-mount system is used, the water can reach over 230 degrees! Water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit. Hot water is a key component in any cleanin.
Powerful Vacuum System
Truck-mount systems are basically an engine with a very powerful buit-in blower. The horsepower ranges from 15 to 50, depending on the size of the machine. This engine powers this vacuum so it can create a very powerful suction. This vacuum is so powerful that it can have your carpets dry within a couple hours. There is a misconception that steam cleaning will over-saturate your carpet, soak your padding and take days to dry. This is simply NOT true.
