Rug Cleaning, Repair, Restoration
“The dirt in a rug acts more as an abrasive to the fibers shortening the life of the pile.”
Step 2: The next step is a gentle washing with soap and water to bring the shine and softness to the rug. This step is where you will see the most difference. We wash the rugs by hand help rotating brushes to go over every spot that needs detail. Certain spots need certain procedures and no automated mass production machines can do that. A machine doesn’t know when to stop and give an area a little more scrubbing when needed. Dog or cat urine can also be reverse flushed at this stage as well.
Step 3: The third step is drying. We dry rugs flat on the floor with fans and outside air if weather permitting. We are not a fan of hanging heavy wet rugs in a high heat setting to dry. Some things we don’t want to rush and stretching and shrinkage concerns are avoided.
Step 4: The last step is detailing the rug. Fringes are combed and straightened. Fringes and edges are trimmed and any spots are attended to. If it needs mothproofing or deodorizing, it’s done. If repairs are needed, it’s done. After the rug is vacuumed and inspected, it goes to customer.
