Bespoke Rug Cleaning Services London and Beyond

We will give your rug the careful treatment that it deserves. As part of our rug cleaning service, items are collected and taken to our cleaning plant where they are inspected for stains and areas of wear or weakness. The rug or tapestry is thoroughly vacuumed to remove all loose soil – areas of heavy soil are pre-sprayed and stains are pre-spotted by hand. If the rug or tapestry has any fringes, they are cleaned and brushed by hand. We leave no stone unturned when it comes to cleaning rugs, and our expert hand finishing leaves them looking truly spectacular.

The Rug Dry Cleaning London Customers Count On

If your rugs are particularly valuable, whether that’s financially or sentimentally, it can be hard to leave them in someone else’s care. However, you can rest assured that your rugs are in the safest possible hands with us. We clean all rugs and tapestries with neutral soaps or mild detergent depending on the type of soiling – in some cases, rugs may be dry cleaned. Once cleaned, they are given a sour rinse to enhance their appearance and then hung to dry naturally. Dry cleaning rugs really does give fantastic results, and our clients are often overjoyed when they see how their previously tired or dirty rugs have been transformed.

You Can Trust Us When It Comes to Rug Cleaning

We pride ourselves on our expert eye, and we’ll inspect your rug(s) through every step of the cleaning process. Before packing and delivering to the client, all rugs and tapestries are reviewed to assess results and re-worked if it is felt that any improvement may be possible. In the case of Chinese rugs, the pile is re-lustred by hand. We won’t stop until we are sure that you will be totally delighted. Our rug cleaning service is specifically tailored to the fibres we are working on, so whether we’re conditioning a family heirloom or a high-value Persian rug, the quality of our cleaning service is of the highest standards, and the care and attention brought to your item is absolutely second to none.

Once rugs have undergone stain removal and a thorough clean and they are looking their best again, it makes sense to keep them that way by applying a Stainshield carpet protector to resist rapid re-soiling and staining.

How long does the Pilgrim Payne rug cleaning process take?

We deal with a wide range of cleaning concerns, serving the needs of a huge variety of customers. Every single job is different, and that means that cleaning times can vary. What your rug is made of, its size, the degree of staining, and many other factors can all influence how long it takes to complete the cleaning process. If you want to find out how much having your rug(s) professionally cleaned would cost, then please get in touch with a member of our team today. They will ask you a few questions and then arrange you with a free, no pressure estimate.

If you are going to get the most out of your newly clean rug, there are a number of steps you should take afterwards to ensure that it remains in great condition. What these are will depend on the kind of rug that you have – for example whether it is made of natural or synthetic fibres. When you work with us, you get to reap the rewards of our years of experience. When we clean your carpets, we will talk you through the process and then afterwards, tell you how to look after them going forward. We will share our favourite tips and products with you.

Here at Pilgrim Payne, this is a question that we really are asked a lot. Again, this can depend on a number of factors. How much footfall your rug(s) will be subjected to is a big one, as it will dictate how much wear and tear it is subjected to in the coming months. We do suggest that you have your rugs cleaned once a year for the best ongoing results, but you could find yourself either side of that depending on what your specific needs are. Do not worry – we will advise you on the best option for you.
