Customer lives in NYC her weekend home has what she said its a cotton rag rug. I am cleaning other floors in the house friday she wants to know if i can clean rug in the picture. Thanks
That depends upon the construction. I cannot tell for sure from the photo. The concern would be that friction from a bonnet could pull loose some strands of fiber and give the rug a fuzzy appearance.can i clean with a bonnett i have all the stuff for that? I also havea cimex but wouldnt use it on that rug. Thanks again!
dang Old Vet...every time I read you...well...I just have to say, you young sir...have been down some dirt roads...LOL...( isn't nice to hear young with your name )Scott is correct. I would just like to add that if indeed the rug is cotton you're going to have to take serious precautions as cotton shrinks. If it were me and I had no choice but to clean it on location, I would either use a very low moisture soil transfer method, or a dry compound. Those two methods are pretty fail safe and provide outstanding results as well.
Remember....Your customer is not only paying you to clean it, but also paying you not to ruin it.
That could very well happen, Scott.That depends upon the construction. I cannot tell for sure from the photo. The concern would be that friction from a bonnet could pull loose some strands of fiber and give the rug a fuzzy appearance.
Quick answer...Probably. However your thorough inspection will answer that question beter than anyone here.can i clean with a bonnett i have all the stuff for that? I also havea cimex but wouldnt use it on that rug. Thanks again!
Okay. When you get there be professional and inspect the rug as if your business depends on it. Because it does. If for any reason you feel uncertain, or apprehensive, tell her that you will only clean it at your plant. That gives you time to do a more thorough inspection and allows for better testing. And it takes the preasure off of you. You can then continue on with the rest of your work there.Thanks, I cant look at until friday she is in the city. I am doing other floors there and told her i would see if i can clean it.
I agree. My mom had them all through our homes. Those things survived 11 of us and daily use for 30 years.That's a run of the mill braided rug. A whole different ballgame buddy. I can beat that to death after letting it sit in the river for a month. No problem.
