Our Persian & Oriental rug cleaning process begins with the removal of all dry soil that is deep within the rug. We use a “dusting” process to gently remove all dry particulate prior to the cleaning/wash. This ensures that your rug is free of any dirt and sand that could potentially wear down the face fibers of your rug.
After the “dusting” process, your rug is taken to our wash floor to begin the wash process. At this time we take special care to test for dye-bleed or any other circumstances that may arise. If the colors of the Persian or Oriental rug do run, then we use special dye stabilizers to secure the colors through the wash. We then completely submerge your rug in water together with a neutral PH soap designed specifically for wool. We use a rotary scrubber or an array of hand brushes to gently work the lather into the rug. Special attention is given to the fringe at the time as well.
We then rinse all soap and dirt out of the rug and with the help of an industrial squeegee; we wring out the excess water. The rug is then taken to our centrifuge to be spun at a high r.p.m. to remove 99% of any remaining water. This step also ensures that the rug has no remaining dirt, urine or any other contaminants. Once removed from the centrifuge, the rug is taken and hung up in our custom built drying room and left to dry in a hot dry environment. We use this method to kill off any potential mold or mildew and to ensure a 100% dry rug. Once dry, the rug is inspected for quality at every inch. If the rug does not pass inspection, then entire wash process starts again.
While most companies claim to “wash” rugs, they are really only using steam. We pride ourselves on the old world tradition of washing handmade rugs. We value our customer’s rugs as art and treat them the same way an artist would treat his canvas. We refuse to cut corners and this is evident in the results of our work.
