Cleaning your rugs using our thorough 10 step process and safe cleaning solutions will ensure outstanding results, we never use harsh cleaning products when cleaning a rug.

Step 1: Pre Clean Inspection

Every rug we are asked to clean is inspected prior to any work starting on it, we will inspect the rug for any pre existing damage such as dye bleed, staining, areas of wear and some rug characteristics such as abrash and white knot. We will leave you with a written inspection sheet highlighting any concerns prior to us taking the rug away from your property.

Once the rug is back at our studio it will be given further inspection to make sure nothing was missed. This thorough inspection process allows us to decide on the correct cleaning method to be used to clean your precious rug.

Step 2: Dry Soil Removal

Like you carpet fibres, rugs are designed to hide dry soil. Did you know an 6×4 rug can hide several kg of dirt!!!

This is probably the most important part of any cleaning process, cleaning without removing the soil will turn the soil into mud. We first vacuum the rug then it is mechanically beaten using vibrations on the reverse to loosen the dry soil which fall away from the face of the rug through a grid onto the floor.

This process alone can make your rug so much lighter in weight, and by removing the dirt it prevents damage being caused to the fibres from abrasion.

Step 3: Pre Treatment / Decontamination

Depending on the condition of the rug and if it has any odours such as urine, mould or mildew,  it may need decontamination, this is the only way to reduce these types of odours. However it is important to be aware that not all odours can be successfully removed.

Step 4: Rug Wash

The correct washing process is carried out to suit the type of rug, this could be by submerging the rug in cold water and special shampoos while agitating with soft brushes, or it could be by extraction cleaning.

Step 5: Spot and Fringe Treatment

Any spots or marks that are still evident following the wash process will be treated using the appropriate solutions, fringes will also be treated and cleaned to get them clean, some staining on cotton fringes can be permanent. We never use any form of bleach on fringes to whiten them, this can deteriorate the fibres and cause them to rot and the fringes were never white in the first place!

Step 6: Rug Rinse

This step enables us to remove all of the cleaning solution used in the cleaning process, this is done by running clean cold water over the rug removing the residues in its flow, we continue this process until all residues have been removed. Leaving cleaning residue in the fibres can lead to rapid re-soiling as well as the fibres feeling coarse.

Step 7: Water Extraction

This process removes the excess water from the rug before it is taken into the drying room. It is essential as much moisture is removed from the rug so the drying time is reduced, this helps prevent the risk of issues such as colour run, browning and mould growth.

Step 8: Grooming and Protector

Once we are happy with the cleaning of your rug we apply the anti stain protection if you have requested it. This puts a coating on each fibre which helps protect it against staining and re-soiling, giving you more time to mop up spillages that may occur, this coating will also help reduce abrasion wear.

The face fibres of the rug will then be groomed ensuring the pile is tangle free and laying in one direction.

Step 9: Speed Dry

The rug is hung in our drying room which is temperature and humidity controlled, air movers are used to force warm air across the rug. This is the safest method for drying rugs and ensures optimum drying conditions for your rug.

Step 10: Final Groom and Post inspection

Once the rug is completely dry it is laid out given a final groom, we will then thoroughly inspect the rug and release it for delivery back to you. Your rug will be wrapped for delivery to protect it from dust and soiling, once delivered back to you, we will lay it out  for you.
