How dirty are your area rugs?
Eureka Company studies have found that a 9x12 area rug can hide up to 87 pounds of dirt! Forget about dog hair; that’s your whole dog (and maybe a couple of kids too)! However, area rugs are about as diverse as there are people and companies who make them. There are many factors to consider: fiber type, construction type, dye stability, fringe construction, pet urine and/or sun damage, moth contamination, etc. All of these things must be considered, and any one of these components can complicate the cleaning process. That’s why we customize a cleaning approach for every rug. Think of us like a rug boutique.
Our Exclusive 12-Step Cleaning Process:
Step 1: Initial Pre-inspection, Price Quote, and Pick-up
Step 2: Detailed Pre-inspection to determine:
- Fiber type: is it natural or synthetic?
- Dye stability: is it colorfast, fugitive, or excess dye?
- Construction type: is it woven, tufted, or custom?
- Pre-existing Conditions/Damage: is there pet urine, stenciling, dry rot, delamination, bad latex, abrash, asymmetry, etc.?
- Fringe: is there damage, or will the fringe need extra treatment after cleaning?
Step 3: Dry soil removal/dusting
Step 4: Pre-condition, pre-spot, dye-stabilizer application
Step 5: Pit wash or surface clean (depending on the level of cleanability)
Step 6: Spot/stain treatment, enzyme/deodorizer application
Step 7: Rinse w/ pH balancer
Step 8: Water removal and extraction
Step 9: Dry with air movers and dehumidification
Step 10: Fringe cleaning/treatment
Step 11: Finish and groom/post-vacuum
Step 12: Post-inspection and delivery
