In-plant area rug cleaning is recommended for oriental rugs and loose woven rugs.
These rugs should not be cleaned on location like wall to wall carpet. Clean Pro cares for the finest rugs from around the world and the most basic rugs as well. In our state of the art cleaning plant, your rug will receive special attention by our certified rug cleaning specialist. Our staff will meticulously care for your rugs to ensure maximum soil and spot removal. Cleaning rugs in our plant enables us to provide several treatments for a more thorough cleaning, control drying conditions, and use various specialized tools that are not available with on-site cleaning.
Our 8 Step Area Rug Cleaning Process:
Pre-Inspection: Rugs are inspected to determine the type of fiber, color fastness, and degree of soiling to apply the safest most effective method to accomplish cleanliness.
Dusting (dry soil removal): Woven rugs, especially hand knotted rugs are designed to hide dry soil. Several years ago, the Eureka Company did a study and found that a 9×12 rug could hide 87 pounds of soil without looking soiled. We use a special tool designed for rugs to release granular soil from rug fibers. The tool creates 40,000 sonic booms per minute upon the backing of the rug to free maximum dry soil.
Pre-conditioning: Coating the rug with safe solutions for specific fiber content to emulsify and loosen soil. These solutions are drawn out the rug in the extraction process.
Pre-spotting: Address potentially challenging spots before cleaning as a proactive measure.
Fringe preparation: Fringe is untangled and pretreated for maximum soil removal.
Wash pit: Rugs are completely submerged to wash out soil and contaminates. A specialized rug wand is used to apply gentle water pressure to wash the rug. While, water and soil are drawn from the wash pit thus reducing pollutants. This process is performed repetitiously on both sides of the rug and results in a clean rug.
Dry: Rugs are dried in a controlled environment so we are able to alter the dry process as needed. Proper drying is essential to avoid complications such as unnatural shrinkage.
Finishing: When rugs are dry, we use groomers and finishers designed for rugs to leave your rug soft and bring out the luster.
