Woven rugs, especially hand knotted rugs are designed to hide dry soil. A few years ago, the Eureka Company did a study and found that a 9 x 12 rug could hide up to 87 pounds of dirt! WOW! We use a variety of techniques to "dust" the rugs. A machine called a Rug Badger incorporates 50 high tech vibro straps creating highly focused vibrations to drive dirt out of a rug no matter how impacted. Then, every rug is dusted with our unique compressed air wands to remove the finest dry soiling. Finally, the fringe is treated with compressed air, to further remove any soiling. This is the most important step in cleaning any textile.
A final detail vacuuming is the last step in the dry soil removal.
Depending on fiber content and soiling type, the rug will be pre-treated to emulsify the soils.
Using a floor machine the preconditioned rug scrub for maximum soil.
Depending on the type of rug it could be rinsed with extraction equipment on both sides or washed in a wash pit designed especially for some woven rugs and Oriental Rugs.
