The rug is dusted using compressed air to safely and thoroughly remove all the dry particles, dust, hair and other debris that need to be removed before rug washing.
Shampoo rug cleaning was standard until the 1970s, when encapsulation technology became available. While shampooing a carpet may appear to clean heavily soiled rugs, the technology’s disadvantage is that it leaves behind a large number of wet foam residues in the carpet, which takes a long time to dry, becomes sticky when it dries because no rinsing is done after shampooing, and results in rapid re-soiling.
The rug is thoroughly rinsed to remove all contaminates and odor. It is then gently scrubbed under water.
After the rug washing process, the next step is the wringer machine. Rugs are extremely heavy when they are wet, and are known to grow mildew if they remain damp for too long. The wringer reduces the drying time. Rugs enter the wringer completed saturated and come out with a majority of the water extracted.
Immediately following the water extraction, your rug is gently brushed and groomed and ready to be transported to our drying tower room. After being cleaned, the rugs are dried in a computerized, temperature-controlled drying room that imitates the natural drying process. This specially designed room quickly and effectively dries rugs by controlling heat and humidity. Old rugs that cannot withstand the drying room undergo natural drying.
After the rugs have been dried, they are reviewed, and transferred to the specific repairs department if necessary. Rugs that are only cleaned undergo quality control, brushing and packaging.
We store the rugs in our specially designed storage room where they remain until their delivery to you at your most convenient time.
