Our company cares for the finest to the most basic rugs from around the world. We will pick your rug up and bring it to our special cleaning plant where it will receive our very thorough Ten Step Cleaning System to get maximum soil and spot removal.

What to expect

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 by our shop.

Step 2

Dry Soil Removal (Rug Badger)

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 87 pounds of dirt! WOW! We use a variety of techniques to “dust” the rugs from the front and back. A machine called a Rug Badger, special vacuum attachments 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 or Wash

Depending on the type of rug it will be rinsed with extraction equipment on both sides orwashed in a wash pit designed especially for Oriental Rugs.

Step 7

Rug Revolution ProStar SS

The Rug Revolution ProStar SS is one of the most advanced Centrifuge Rug wringers ever developed for extracting water out of area rug. It starts by spinning slowly while rinsing your fine rugs with fresh cool water until it runs clear. Then the water is stopped and the revolution is turned up to 1300 RPM to extract 98% of the water, allowing for extremely quick dry times.

Step 8

Dry

Once the soil, and specialized cleaners are rinsed away, the rug is dried flat or hung to dry in a controlled environment. Proper drying is essential to avoid unnatural shrinkage.

Step 9

Finishing

When the rug is dry, it is combed and finished with soft groomers made for specialty rugs.

Step 10

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.
