Our New Eight Step Cleaning System
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 We use a variety of techniques to ‘ dust ’ the rugs from the front and back , including our new , state-of-the-art Tumble Duster .
We also use compressed air , a pile lifter , and special vacuum attachments to remove dry soil from your rug .
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 : Wash Our new and improved washtub will clean your rugs gently and thoroughly . It consists of paddle wheels , which mimic the gentle motion of hand and river washing . Soil is effectively removed by the gentle , turbulent flow of the wash water without the use of brushes or other mechanical forces that could damage rug fibers .
Our rug washing solutions not only provide a thorough cleaning , but they ensure that cross contamination and dye transfer is impossible during the washing process .
Step 6 : Rinse This new machine is one of the most successful rug wringers in the world . It removes over 90 % of moisture from rugs in 3 minutes or less , allowing heavy and dense textiles to be processed quickly and efficiently .
Additionally , the Centri-Max rug wringer is an exceptional tool for removing urine and other contaminants from rugs . Using a combination of centrifugal force , water irrigation , and effective chemistry , contaminants are flushed out of rugs better than any other method !
Step 7 : Dry and Finish Once the rug is removed from the centrifuge , it is hung for final drying in an environment with controlled temperature and humidity .
When the rug is completely dry , the pile is gently combed and finished with soft groomers made for specialty rugs .
Step 8 : Post Inspection and Delivery Our rug 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 .
Our equipment investment helps protect your rug investment .
