Some area rugs can be cleaned in your home. They will be cleaned according to our carpet cleaning procedures. Some rugs, however, should not be cleaned on location due to inherent cleaning dynamics and certain soiling conditions. Unknowledgeable carpet cleaners may needlessly ruin a rug from simply not knowing the potential problems of certain rugs. Our company successfully cleans some of the finest rugs from around the world.
For a thorough cleaning of your fine rugs our company will pick your rugs up and clean them in a specially designed facility. In-plant cleaning offers many advantages: Having the rug in the plant allows us to give it several treatments for a more thorough cleaning, controlled drying, and the use of various tools that are not available on location. Your rug will be cleaned according to the following important steps:
Step 1: Pre-Inspection and Pick Up
We will determine as much as we possibly can about the type of rug and inherent qualities that may affect cleaning. We will outline the expected results and cleaning “prescription”. Our company will come to your home to pick up your rug, or you may drop it at our facility.
Step 2: Dry Soil Removal
Woven rugs, especially hand knotted rugs are designed to hide dry soil. A few years ago, the Eureka company did a study and found that a 9 x 12 could hide 5 pounds of dirt! WOW! We use a variety of techniques to “dust” the rugs from the front and back. A machine called the ™Rug Badger and any many other methods are implemented. This is the most important step in cleaning any textile.
Step 3: Pre-Condition
Depending on fiber content and soiling type, the rug will be pre-treated to emulsify the soils.
Step 4: Pre-Spot and Fringe Preparation
Any potentially difficult spots will be pre-treated with special solutions to increase chances of removal. The fringe is also pre-treated for maximum soil removal.
Step 5: Shampoo
Most rugs are cleaned with an Oriental Rug Shampoo that is especially designed to get maximum cleaning while protecting sensitive natural fibers.
Step 6: Rinse
Depending on the type of rug it will be rinsed with extraction equipment on both sides.
Step 7: Dry
Once the soil is rinsed away, the rug is dried flat or hung to dry in a controlled environment. Proper drying is essential to avoid unnatural shrinkage and dye migration.
Step 8: Finishing
When the rug is dry, it is combed and finished with soft groomers made for specialty rugs.
Step 9: Post Inspection and Delivery
Our cleaning specialist will give the rug a final inspection and release it for pick up or delivery.
