Dusting: This step involves a combination of vacuuming, vibration and powerful compression of air with the use of professional tools and equipment to remove dust and dry particles trapped within the rug fibers. This process is very important during rug cleaning because it facilitates cleaning and prevents soiling when the rug is wet during cleaning.
Submersion & Hand Washing:
This involves soaking the rugs in a continuous flow of water that is mixed with a mild pH neutral cleansing agent to clean the rug. The rugs are soaked and then hand washed until they are clean using appropriate cleaning solutions. The cleaning solutions used are mainly determined by the fiber material of your rug. Rugs that have stubborn contaminants e.g. pet urine and stains are soaked into the cleaning solution for a longer period of time to guarantee complete removal of these contaminants and stains. When hand cleaning the rugs, they are gently brushed and squeezed to ensure that all contaminants are removed before the rugs are rinsed.
Rinsing: Rinsing follows thorough cleaning to ensure that no contaminants or cleaning solutions remain on the rug. To rinse the rugs thoroughly, the rug is rolled on a rug suction cylinder and then rinsed using fresh water to remove all cleaning solutions. After the rug is rinsed completely, it remains on the suction cylinder until all the residual water is removed. Finally, the rug is then hand suctioned with special equipment to remove as much water as possible before being hung to dry.
Controlled Drying: Having a fast and efficient drying is very important after cleaning your rugs because molds and mildew can develop on your rug. Therefore, to ensure that the rugs dry fast and effectively, controlled drying in a heated room is used. This process involves a combination of air circulation, heat and dehumidifying process for a period of 12-24 hours to ensure that the rugs dry completely.
Post Detailing: This is the last step and it involves cleaning and restoring all fringes with the use of a specially designed tool. The rugs are then vacuumed, dusted, groomed and inspected to check whether they have any remaining stains.
