This Oriental rug came to our plant with heavy soot and water damage. Our challenge was to remove the soot and repair the water damage without causing adverse effects to the rug and restore it to its pre-loss condition.
We specialize in cleaning all kinds of rugs from antique to contemporary. Each and every rug goes through a thorough preliminary inspection to determine the condition of the rug. Based on the results of the inspection we decide the specific special treatments each rug needs prior to wash and which wash process is appropriate for each rug.
The first step to rug restoration is pre-inspecting the rug and noting areas of concern. Our inspection will search for the following items: Condition, Special Treatment, Wear and Tear, Supporting the Area, Color Fussing / Instability, Stabilizing the color, Urine stains, Mold Proofing, Enzyme treatment, Discoloration, Color restoration, Color Bleed, Bleeding removal, Stains, Stains Treatment. After the rug has been assessed, our skilled technicians remove any loose dust, dirt and debris.
The fibers of the rug are pre-conditioned and agitated to loosen embedded soils and soot. As a result, the pile of the rug becomes open and fresh.
3. Odor Treatment
The odor causing elements in the rug are encapsulated to be extracted.
4. Hand Washing
The rug is then carefully hand-washed multiple times in our wash pit and placed through our high-volume water extractor.
After a thorough hand-washing, the rug is dried in a state-of-the-art climate controlled drying room.
6. Post Cleaning Inspection
After completely drying, the rug is carefully inspected for repairs by our expert technicians. The fringes are also brushed out and untangled for a nice, clean finish. If the fringes are damaged, they may be repaired or completely replace, with permission from the rug’s owner.
7. Final Steps
After repairs are assessed, the rug receives a final inspection and manicure before they are rolled up and returned to the rug’s owner.
