1Step 1Removing dirt from a rug prior to cleaning is crucial for maintaining its longevity and appearance. Dirt and debris, when left to accumulate on a rug, can cause extensive damage over time. Dirt particles can act like tiny blades, cutting and wearing away at the fibers of the rug, leading to fraying and thinning. Furthermore, dirt can act as an abrasive when the rug is walked on, causing additional damage to the fibers. Dirt and debris can get ground deep into the fibers of the rug, making it much more difficult to clean. This makes it important to extract dirt from the rug before cleaning, as it can significantly prolong the life of the rug and prevent the need for costly repairs or replacement.
Extraction of dirt
The rug is placed face down on a grid, we then use a machine which vibrates and passes 30,000 harmonic beats per minute. This results in extraction of bugs, allergen, dirt, debris and grit out of the rug.
2Step 2Encapsulation cleaning uses a special cleaning solution that contains tiny particles called “encapsulators.” These encapsulators surround the dirt and stains on your rug/carpet fibers and form a crystalline structure around them.
Once the encapsulators have formed, they are easily removed from the fibers during the wash. This process leaves your rugs looking clean and refreshed without leaving any sticky residue behind.
3Step 3The rug is now prepared for water submersion. The rug gets placed in a large, shallow pool or tub filled with water and a specially formulated rug cleaning solution. The rug is gently agitated to loosen dirt and debris from the fibers, and the cleaning solution works to break down any stains or spots.
After the rug has been submerged and cleaned for the appropriate amount of time, it is rinsed thoroughly with clean water to remove any remaining dirt or cleaning solution. The rug is then carefully lifted out of the water and placed on a flat surface to dry.
Drying an area rug after water submersion cleaning is critical to ensure that it does not develop mold or mildew. The rug is typically hung up or placed on a flat surface to air dry, with fans or dehumidifiers used to speed up the process. It is important to make sure that the rug is completely dry before it is returned to its normal location
The wash should take care of most stains and traffic patterns on the rug. If there is/are additional treatments necessary i.e. enzyme treatment, deodorization, moth treatment, dye stabilization etc. These treatments are applied to ensure the rug comes out in the best possible condition
