Our Rug Cleaning & Repair Process
Experts identify your rug, whether it is a Fine Silk, Handmade or American machine-made rug.
After pre-inspection, rugs are prescribed the correct cleaning process that will produce the best possible results. Note: Silk or Silk like rugs are cleaned with a specialized method using low moisture.
A detailed report will be emailed to you including pictures before our process begins and any recommendations for repair work.
Once pre-inspected rugs are gently dusted in our 'Tumble duster'. This process removes pounds of impacted soils trapped in rugs and results in a cleaner more relaxed rug when returned to you. Delicate, antique, or weak rugs are also dusted by carefully using compressed air to loosen and remove impacted soils.
Your rug will be immersed in fresh water to begin loosening soil and lifting the nap of the rug.
The rug will then be hand-washed using an approved wool shampoo by the Wools of New Zealand. This will create a soft feel and luster.
Our unique 3 rinse cycle removes the embedded soils and contaminants by first using a high flow fan tipped hose. The second rinse is done in our wringer where additional soils are released. The final rinse is in our centrifuge where the rug is spun at high speed for 3 minutes leaving it virtually drip free.
Once freshly cleaned, your rug will be meticulously groomed to ensure an even finish, then dried in our state-of-the-art climate controlled drying room.
After the rugs are dry, a Post inspection will be performed where the inspector will determine whether the rug meets our standard to move to the ‘Ready’ status or if the rug needs to be returned to the wash department to readdress any concerns. This will be done at no additional cost.
Once completed the Post Inspector will complete his report with pictures and observations which will be emailed to you for your convenience.
The rug fringe will be groomed and the rug will be rolled, wrapped in perforated plastic (so the rug can breathe) and placed on a holding shelf to be returned.
