How Are Rugs Cleaned?

It depends on the rug as every rug is different – construction, fibers, bleeding dyes, etc. Especially when we’re talking about hand-woven “Oriental” style rugs. But, it’s not always about the construction of the rug or even the fiber type itself. Sometimes it comes down to the living conditions of the rug. If a rug is saturated in pet urine, we have to treat that rug differently than we would if it were not.

We have a variety of methods and cleaning theories to employ and we continue to involve ourselves in continued educational classes and seminars. We even host a variety of hands-on and technical training at least 4 times every year.

We’re pet lovers just like you. If odors and stains from pet accidents are something you’re dealing with, give us a call. We’ll make it easy and put you at ease about the whole thing by educating you and giving you options. If you are thinking about throwing your rug out, consider donating it to us for a future training class that we host at our Rug Cleaning Facility.

Our 8 Point Rug Cleaning Process

The rug or the condition of the rug may change some things about how we clean the rug. 

The following principles are used to clean each and every rug. 

1) Pre-Inspection,
Testing, & Client Review

Your rugs will be pre-inspected before any cleaning begins. We are first measuring and then not only identifying the construction type, but also the fiber type(s). We are also looking for any special conditions such as pet urine or spots and even manufacturer’s defects.

2) Dry Soil Removal

Dry soil is the majority of the soiling in all textiles. Rugs, especially those made of wool, can hide a good bit of dry soil. We carefully vacuum and dust every rug as a first step to the various cleaning processes.

3) Pre-Treat &
Pre-Condition

Most rugs will need a pre-treatment of some sort. Think of this as soaping up your hair in the shower or adding laundry detergent to the washer. Pre-conditioning, for example, is when a rug has dyes that are going to bleed, (we find this out in the pre-inspection step). We need to condition the fibers to allow the dyes to run without adhering to the good fibers.

4) Agitation & Dwell

Once rugs are pre-treated and pre-conditioned as necessary, a gentle agitation by a specially equipped machine and/or by hand. Special attention is given to areas of concern and fringe (if applicable). Dwell time is equally as important as any of these steps so we give the rugs a little time to relax.

5) Rinse & Extract

Depending on the method of cleaning for each rug, the rinse and extract method can vary. Some of our methods include full immersion washing, hand-washing, bonnet cleaning, dry cleaning, and low-moisture cleaning. Of course, we even employ our truck-mounted hot water extraction method for the wall-to-wall type rug remnants and polypropylene area rugs.

6) Speed Dry

A critical step to rug washing is the drying process. Being on the East Coast, we experience a variety of climates which can make drying a soaking wet rug, enormously challenging. We have built a custom rug drying room that blows air up through the floor, allowing the rug to float on air. We’ve essentially created a large dryer as we can add heat and remove moisture in the air through a vent fan and dehumidifiers.

7) Post-Inspection

Once the rugs are dry, they are given a thorough post-inspection by our Rug Plant Manager to ensure quality control. At this time, they can move to the next step or get touched up for extra detail. Most rugs go through the washing process once and they look great. However, we are never afraid to wash it again if it does not meet our standards.

8) Finishing

Adding fiber protector is an option. We have products that are safe for natural and synthetic fibers. If you choose, the fiber protector is sprayed and brushed onto the rug – both sides when applicable. Rugs with a pile are brushed allowing the pile to lay in the proper direction. Rugs are then rolled for pickup/delivery or they can be prepped and wrapped for storage.
