How Is My Rug Cleaned?
Cleaning rugs is a multi-step process that utilizes both custom equipment and hand-work.
STEP 1: Inspection
Once your rugs arrive at the cleaning facility, the rug, face, back, sides, and fringe are all carefully inspected.
STEP 2: Dust and Vacuum
After inspection, your rug is vacuumed and put through a dusting machine. This exclusive process starts with the machine that gently shakes your rugs to remove the sand, soil, and other loose matter that accumulates over the years and embeds itself deep into your rug.
STEP 3: Hand Washing
After dusting, the hand washing process begins. Both the back and front of your rugs are carefully hand washed. This process ensures the removal of most common odors and residues.
STEP 4: Centrifuge Pre-Dry
After washing, the use of an exclusive centrifuge process extracts excess water from your rugs.
STEP 5: Controlled Dry
Then, your rugs are hung in a special drying room. This dries your rugs in a temperature and humidity controlled environment which can take anywhere from 6-12 hours.
STEP 6: Final Touches
After drying is complete, your rugs and fringe are brushed and vacuumed. At this point, there is a final inspection to make sure small stains were not missed during the washing process. We do everything possible to make sure your rug is cleaned without damaging the integrity of the material. Once the final inspection is complete, your rug is brought back to our store and is ready for pick up.
