Extend of the Life of Your Rugs With Proper Cleaning

Rugs serve as the biggest filter of dust and dirt in your home. Dirty rugs harbor substances like fungus, viruses, toxins, bacteria, and allergens that can be harmful to your health. Vacuuming your rugs alone is not enough to remove those substances as they accumulate deep into the fibers over time. Professionally cleaning your rugs on a regular basis will ensure you’re breathing cleaner air and creating a healthier environment in your home.

We are not any ordinary rug cleaning service. We have over 60+ years of experience. With our knowledge and expertise, you will get your rugs back in excellent shape.

Before & After Rug Cleaning

Our Cleaning Process

Step 1: Inspection

The first step in getting your rug cleaned is inspecting your rug. We will identify the type of rug, note any pre-existing damage, loose fibers, stains or color runs. We then take measurements and provide you with an estimate.

Step 2: Deep Dry Soil Removal

Before washing the rug, we employ our state of the art dusting process, using vibration to extract any dirt stuck deep in the pile of the rug. This loosens and releases dirt from deep within the rug. This adds years of life to your rug.

Step 3: Dye Testing

In this crucial step, we test your rug for colorfastness. By inspecting the rug alone, it is hard to determine whether or not the dyes will bleed out during a wash. If the rug tests out good, we will proceed with the wash. If the dye test shows running of colors, we will use an alternate technique to clean your rug.

Step 4: Urine Decontamination Treatment (If Needed)

If your rug has been heavily soiled by your pet, then a urine decontamination treatment will need to be added. This is where we soak your rug with a natural and non-toxic solution that breaks down the urine salts at a molecular level which then enables them to be flushed out without any residue.

Step 5: Pre-Wash & Stain Removal Process

Before washing the rug, we will pre-treat any troubled areas. After safely removing the stains, the rug is ready to be fully immersed. We will soak both sides of your rug to loosen up any dirt, odors, grime, and pet urine that is deep down in the pile. Once it has been thoroughly soaked it is ready for washing.

Step 6: Washing and Rinsing

To ensure the best possible outcome, we use a unique soap blend for each rug type to avoid any damage to the fibers. This involves a meticulous hand-washing technique by agitating the fibers down to the rug’s foundation, with all-natural soap. Then, the rinsing process includes a full flush to get rid of the embedded dirt and soap residue and doing so until the water runs clean and clear.

Step 7: Drying

After the final rinse, the excess water is extracted. Depending on the type of rug, it is either hung to dry on our hanging racks or dried under the sun.

Step 8: Rug Finishing

After the rug is completely dry, it’s time to properly groom the rug. After many years the pile of your rug can go in many different directions. During this crucial step we brush the pile in one direction, which is the way it was weaved. By doing this it brings the rug back to its original condition.

Step 9: Final Inspection and Delivery (or Pickup)

We then check to see that all stains have been removed, no dirt or debris remains, and that your rug looks amazing. After reviewing our checklist of inspection items, your rug is then vacuumed and rolled for delivery back to your home or for pickup if you dropped it off with us.
