Dry Soil Removal (Rug Badger)
A few years ago, a study found that a 9 x 12 could hide 87 pounds of dirt! WOW! We use a variety of techniques remove dry soil from the front and back. A machine called a Rug Badger, special vacuum attachments and any many other methods are implemented. This is the most important step in cleaning any textile.
Depending on 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 pre-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.
Rinse or Wash
Depending on the type of rug it will be rinsed with extraction equipment on both sides or washed in a wash pit designed especially for Oriental Rugs.
Remove excess water
We use rollers and truck mounted extractor to remove water.
Once the soil, and specialized cleaners are rinsed away, the rug is dried flat or hung to dry in a controlled environment. Using dehumidifiers and blower will ensure complete drying.
When the rug is dry, it is combed and finished with soft groomers made for specialty rugs.
Post Inspection and Delivery
A final inspection and it is ready for pickup or delivery. Upon delivery, we will lay the rug for you.
