Restoration Process

Informative guidelines for your rugs cleaning, repair, and restoration.

ORIENTAL & ANTIQUE

Rugs and carpets

THE PROCESS OF CLEANING ORIENTAL & ANTIQUE RUGS HERE AT KCRUGCLEANERS & RESTORATION IS A FAMILY TRADITION. ALL OF THE RUGS CLEANED HERE ARE ALL HAND WASHED. A MACHINE IS USED FOR EXTRACTION. UTILIZING THE SAME PROCESS AND ALL GREEN CHEMICAL SOLUTION FROM MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER ANASTACIA. MY TEACHERS WERE MY TWO BELOVED AUNTS WHOM HAD AN ALL ENCOMPASSING CLEANING BUSINESS AND WE WOULD HAND WASH ORIENTAL RUGS. FROM START TO FINISH; WASH TO DRYING TAKES UP TO FOUR DAYS. AFTER HAND WASH ING YOUR RUG IS COMPLETE IT IS HUNG TO DRY FOR UP TO A DAY TO DAY AND A HALF. THEN IT IS TAKEN DOWN FROM  THE HANGER AND PLACED IN THE DRYING ROOM. HERE YOUR RUG IS STILL HAND BRUSHED AND A FRAGRANCE THAT IS HOME MADE IS APPLIED TOPICALLY. HAND BRUSHING IS A PRACTICE THAT VERY FEW RUG CLEANING CO NO LONGER PREFORM. THIS IS IMPORTANT, A VACUUM CLEANER IS A ONE WAY BRUSH. OVER TIME THIS ACTUAALLY PRESSES THE FIBERS/FABRIC OF A RUG DOWN. HAND BRUSHING PULLS THE FIBERS UPRIGHT AS THEY WERE THE DAY YOUR RUG WAS FIRST LOOMED. THE HAND WASH IS A SANITARY PROCESS. NONE OF OUR ALL GREEN CHEMICAL SOLUTION HAS ANY PERFUMES. TO MANY RUG CLEANING COMPANY S USE A HEAVY PERFUMES SHAMPOO. THIS IS OVERKILL AND UNNESSARY. ONCE THE RUG IS FULLY DRIED A TOPICAL APPLICATION OF A LIGHT ALL NATURAL FRAGRANCE IS ADDED. THIS IS BETTER FOR HUMANS AND PET ALLERGYS AND YOUR RUG.

PET URINE REMOVAL WE UTILIZE AN ENZYME TO OBLIDERATE THE BACTERIA WUCH INFESTS FABRIC. WHEN DRY AND A COMBINATION CHEMICAL WHEN WET, TCU, TO HELP RELEACE THE UNIREA.

IF YOUR RUG HAS SUSTAINED YEARS OF URINATION AND REQUIRES MULTIPLE WASHINGS S, THIS IS DEFINED AS URINE CONTAMINATION.  ADDITIONAL CHARGES INCURED FOR EVERY ADDITIONAL WASHING: RUGS CLEANING. ONCE URINATION HAS CREATED: DYE TO RUN, IN SOME INSTANCES THIS POSSIBLY CAN BE REMOVED HOWEVER IN SOME CASES THIS IS PERMINANTLY DAMAGED.

ALL RUGS ARE TESTED WITH THE CHEMICAL UTILIZED IN THE WASHING PROCESS PRIOR TO THE RUG CLEANING.

IF YOUR RUG HAS BEEN URINATED ON WHEN IT IS WASHED DYE RUNNING MAY BECOME MORE EVIDENT AND VISABLE THAT PREVIOUSLY HAD NOT BEEN SEEN CLEARLY. THIS IS NOT OUR FAULT, IT IS THE ACIDIC INFFUSION OF URINE AND CHEMICAL REACTION BETWEEN IT AND THE DYES. THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE WASHING PROCESS NOR THE CHEMICAL IN USE. AS I STATED A TESTING IS DONE FOR COMPATIBILITY WITH THE CHEMICAL BEING UTILIZED IN HAND WASHING YOUR RUG. I APPLY, MIX AND TEST ALL RUGS MYSELF BEFORE WASHING AND ALL OTHER RESTORATION PROCESSES. NONE OF MY EMPLOYEES ARE ALLOWED TO MIX ANY OF THE CHEMICAL PROCESSES INVOLVED AT KCRUGCLEANERS & RESTORATION. ALL WORK IS CLOSELY SUPERVISED.

REPAIR AND RESTORATION CAN LAST UP TO SIX MONTHS AND AS LONG AS A YEAR. IN SOME CASES LONGER DEPENDING ON THE ISSUE OF RESTORATION. ALL CLIENTS WILL BE INFORMED OF the  TIME-LINE AND PROCESSES TAKEN PLACE. THESE RUGS MANY OF WHICH ARE ONE OF A KIND HANDWOVEN CREATIONS. MATERIALS AND SUPPLIES REQUIRE TIME TO LOCATE EXACT MATCHES. CLIENT ORDER'S ARE BEGUN ONCE THE PREVIOUS CLIENTS RUG HAS BEEN COMPLETED.

I GAURANTEE MY COMPANYS WORK. IF A CLIENT IS UNSATISFIED WITH THE WORK ONCE COMPLETED, IT WILL BE REDONE.  IF YOU ARE NOT SATIFIED A FULL REFUND IN A STORE CREDIT WILL BE GIVEN. IF I AM NOT ALLOWED TO COMPLETE THE RESTORATION, REPAIR AND CLEANING OF YOUR RUG IN THE TIME LINES AGREED UPON AND STATED ABOVE NO REFUND WILL BE GIVEN.

I ALSO RECIEVED MY BACHELORS OF FINE ART: MAJORING IN PAINTING AND PRINTMAKING WITH A MINOR IN RESTORATION OF ARTWORK AND FABRIC RESTORATION. PRIOR TO STARTING MY FIRST BUSINESS, JC CLEANING CO. , I WAS AN ADMINISTRATER AT KANSAS UNIVERSITY AND BAKER UNIVERSITY. I HAVE RESTORED RUGS FOR 22 YEARS.
