9 Step Process for Area Rug Cleaning
STEP 1: Pre-inspection and Pick up
We will pick up your rug from your home or business. Upon pick up, your rug will be thoroughly inspected.
STEP 2: Dry Soil Removal
We use a variety of techniques to “dust” rugs from the front and back.
STEP 3: Pre-Condition
Depending on the 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 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 or Wash
Depending on the type of rug, it will be rinsed with the extraction equipment on both sides, or washed in a wash pit designed especially for Oriental Rugs.
STEP 7: Speed Dry
Once the soil is rinsed away, the rug is dried flat or hung to dry in a controlled environment.
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. Upon delivery, we will lay the rug for you.
