Our In-Plant Rug Washing Process:
Oriental and area rugs are made with delicate materials such as wool, silk, cotton, a unique blend and synthetic materials, so we need to correctly analyze the construction, condition and utilize the appropriate process.
There is no one solution to fit all.

It’s very important to inspect your rugs before we start the washing process.
It must also be pointed out that the fringes of the rug cannot be cleaned. So don’t choose the quick, easy and wrong way it will cost you much more in the long run.

- We analyze the knot structure, dyes, condition, age, & damage.

Settlement of dust, sand, or grit can reduce the life of a carpet by causing premature wear.
We vacuum (front/back) to remove fine particle soil.
This is an important step in the cleaning process, and is not included at cleaners offering on-site cleaning, dry cleaning, steam cleaning and other cleaning methods.
The rug is soaked front and back with plenty of clean, cold water.
An organic rug shampoo is applied and the rug is hand-washed going the way of the pile.
All work is gently done by hand to insure that no damage is caused.
While the process is more time consuming, it enables us to remove dirt, pet stains/odor and allergens from your rugs and make them look beautiful, preserving their value and ability to be passed on as family heirloom.
We continue to rinse until the shampoo is removed & the water running off your rug is clear.
The clear water is extracted from the carpet using an extraction vacuum.
Temperature controlled room – filtered air drying conditions, with no allowance for growth of mold or bacteria.
Hand-clean the rug fringe.
Your rug will be wrapped to protect it from dust and environmental soils until it is picked up or delivered.
We’ll return your rugs back to you – free of residues, allergens, dirt, stains, soil & toxic substances – cleaner & healthier for you & your family.
In-Home Rug Cleaning
Carpet cleaners offer in-home rug “steam cleaning” which only cleans the surface, leaving fine dirt and micro particles at the foundation. Also, if the rug does not dry fast enough, after it’s been steam cleaned, the opportunity for mold growth and odor arises.
