1 | PRE-INSPECTION

We carefully inspect your rug, checking for any specific issues to be aware of.  This may include observing damage and repairs needed, stains, how the rug was made and what fibers were used.  This helps us determine how we will proceed.

2 | PRE-TEST

Carefully test ALL colors for possibility of dye bleed to determine which solutions will work safest and best.  This is NOT a a one solution or process fits all rugs business!  We have many options.

3 | DRY DIRT REMOVAL

This is our process of removing damaging dirt particles PRIOR to cleaning.  This gentle procedure of removal may take up to a full day and remove several POUNDS of dirt and ground in grit.  We use three different techniques, depending on the size, age, how fragile and construction of your rug.

4 | PRE-TREATMENT, APPLY SOLUTIONS

When there are stains, heavily soiled areas, urine stains and odors, or the fringe is extra dirty we pre-treat these areas giving them extra time and attention.  This is crucial to the success of the cleaning.  We use the solutions determined as safe in pre-test.

5 | GENTLY HAND BRUSH

Gently brush fibers to loosen dirt.  This step can be from a gentle brush on a buffer to hand held brushes.  This depends on the sensitivity of your fibers or possible age-related weakness.  The focus remains on safely removing dirt and stains with the best results possible.

6 | RINSE

We use several different methods to completely flush your rug from front to back.  This is determined by possible bleeding and strength of your rug.  This flushes all contaminates from your pets, kids, husbands ?? food, and dirt out until the rinse water is running clear.  For most rugs steps 5,6 and 7 are repeated several times.

7 | WATER EXTRACTION AND DRYING

We gently use a specialized extraction system and finish gently removing excess moisture.  This helps facilitate rapid drying in the final phase when we use our specialty fans.  We do not hang heavy, wet rugs so they keep their shape better.  Drying is done flat using fans under and on top for quicker drying.

8 | DETAIL & PREP RUG FOR PICK UP, DELIVERY OR STORAGE

Inspect the rug for remaining spots, brush out the fringe, vacuum lightly, apply protector as ordered, brush nap as needed to give uniform appearance.  Roll up and prepare for delivery.  This is also when we do Tyvek Wrap if being done for storage.  RUG CARE IS OUR TOP PRIORITY
