However, carpets get dirty quickly, especially in the living room, where we spend most of our time.Regularly exposed to coffee stains, wine, food, and to not always pleasant pet odors, they lose their brightness and freshness very quickly.

Because of the unpredictability of your need, we offer an all year round professional wool carpet cleaning service that you can count on. Nettoyeur de la Cité restores the sheen and the soft texture of your carpets and will also deep clean your carpets.
A new trend: shag rugs.
Shag style carpets have seen a return to popularity and are now offered at affordable prices. Often used as decorative elements in the living room, they can now be found anywhere in the house, in the basement, the kids’ rooms and even the stairways.
The majority of synthetic rugs can be cleaned at home. But that is certainly not the case with shag style rugs. Often made from nylon, linen or cotton, the appearance of fibers of this type can be radically changed without the appropriate cleansing technique. The long and thick fibers of the shag rugs make them particularly soft and comfortable for barefoot walking, but it is precisely these particularities that give this type of rug a need for specific maintenance.
Thinking of cleaning your shag rug yourself at home? Big mistake!! Many of our customers call us because they are very disheartened after having tried home-made cleaning of their carpet… The fibers seem to slump and they have lost their radiance. The most frequent problem is the very bad smell that this type of carpet acquires because the drying process lasts too long and it gets impregnated with an odor of humidity.
At Nettoyeur de la Cité, we have the necessary expertise to clean any type of rug in our workshop.
FLOKATI RUG CLEANING
Most flokati type rugs are hand made from wool fibers. The original making of this type of rug is very old. It goes back to ancient Greece. Today, flokati rugs are available in all sizes and colors. As already mentioned, this type of rug is made from wool, but its particularity lies in the fact that the wool fibers are on the surface of the rug, but also on its back. Even if some of these rugs are very ancient, they are still considered works of art and harmonize well with a modern environment. If you own a rug of this type, you probably know that it requires frequent and specific upkeep. What is the best way to take care of a flokati rug? By calling on us! Our unique and specialized cleaning technique will insure that in the long run, your rugs will keep a fresh and new look.
IDENTIFICATION OF YOUR RUGS’ TYPE OF FIBERS
The first step will be the identification of the type of fibers. Mainly made of wool, rugs can also contain a combination of synthetic and modified fibers that will give the appearance of flokati. As we always want to have the best cleaning results, we will use the cleaning and stain-removing products compatible with the fibers and dye of the rug.
SOAKING AND PRE-BRUSHING OF THE RUG
As fibers for this type of rug are often of an excellent quality, they require special attention when it comes to deep cleaning them. That is why we will start by soaking the rug in a soaking solution especially developed for flokati rugs. A soft and delicate brushing will then bring to the surface everything that has accumulated in the rug so that it can be efficiently extracted.
WASHING AND RINSING FLOKATI RUGS
After soaking it, it is important to liberate the flokati from any soap residue or stain-removing agent. A good rinsing followed by an extraction will eliminate any trace of product and leave the rug free of any fatty or chemical substance, thus ensuring a healthy and toxin free living environment. If need be, complementary products like a pet urine or an antibacterial treatment for odor control will be applied.
RAPID DRYING OF RUGS
After cleaning, the rug is dried flat or suspended in our drying room equipped with powerful fans and dehumidifiers in order to obtain a complete drying of the rug. A Teflon type protective treatment can then be applied on request. A test inspection is made in order to insure the good quality of the cleaning before wrapping and delivering the rug.
To each carpet its cleaning technique
Every type of carpet must be cleaned in a different way, respecting a very precise technique and using products that are specifically designed for each type of fiber, especially when it comes to the cleaning of a wool carpet. This will extend the life of your carpets and rugs and provide your family with a healthy allergen, dust and germ exempt environment. We recommend the use of a top quality protective treatment in order to keep the carpet’s appearance looking nice and thus protecting your investment.

The following is a brief description of our workshop cleaning:
To begin with, when your rug is picked up at your house, our specialized technician will visually inspect it and, if need be, will recommend the necessary treatments.
Once in the workshop, the carpet will be hung and gently beaten in order to dislodge as much dust as possible that could be incrusted in it.
After the necessary cleaning and stain-removing products have been applied, we will proceed with a good brushing in order for the dirt to rise up to the surface of the carpet.
Once it has been well brushed, a stream of steam will do an in depth cleaning, and a powerful extraction will get rid of the smallest dust particles.
The rug will then be suspended or laid flat to dry in our drying room equipped with powerful fans and dehumidifiers in order to obtain a quick drying and thus eliminate odor problems.
Once it is dry, the carpet will be well wrapped and delivered to you and our technician will be happy to help you put it back in its place.
