- 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.
- Dry Soil Removal
We use a variety of techniques to “dust” rugs from the front and back.
Depending on the fiber content and soiling type, the rug will be pre-treated to emulsify the soils.
- 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.
Most rugs are cleaned with an Oriental Rug shampoo that is especially designed to get maximum cleaning while protecting sensitive natural fibers.
- Rise 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.
- Speed Dry
Once the soil is rinsed away, the rug is dried flat or hung to dry in a controlled environment.
When the rug is dry, it is combed and finished with soft groomers made for specialty rugs.
- Post Inspection and Delivery
Our cleaning specialist will give the rug a final inspection and release it for pick up or delivery. Your rug will be wrapped in brown craft paper to protect it from dust and environmental soils until it is picked up or delivered. Upon delivery, we will lay the rug for you.
