When you choose Woodard to clean your area rugs, we treat them in our state-of-the-art Rug Care Center with specialized cleaning equipment and controlled temperature and humidity in our drying room. This accelerates the drying process and eliminates possible mold/mildew, as well as minimizing browning and color run. The temperature also kills many insect larvae such as moths and carpet beetles. You cannot reach these temperatures when cleaning an area rug in-home! Woodard also utilizes an air-dusting process to remove dry soil and particulate in the rug before cleaning. For pet damage, there is an additional decontamination bath in a specialized tank to remove contaminants and odor. If rugs have areas that need reweaving, hand repair, rebinding, fringe, or fibers replaced, their specialists perform needed repairs.
