OUR RUG CLEANING PROCESS
ATLANTA AREA RUG CLEANING & ORIENTAL RUG CLEANING
You care about your home and want to keep it clean, sanitary, and smelling fresh. All textiles need regular cleaning and care to extend their life, especially your rugs. Area rugs trap dust, dirt, odors, and oils due to foot traffic, pet accidents, smoke, and various spills.
We are the only cleaning professional in the state of Georgia to hold both the Master Rug Cleaner and Master Textile Cleaner certifications, demonstrating dedication to our craft.
We clean all types of fibers including your most common natural fibers (wool, cotton, silk, sisal, jute, and more...) and the most common synthetic fibers (nylon, polypropylene, olefin, polyester, viscose, and more...)
We provide complimentary rug pickup and delivery.
Pickup and delivery is quick and easy and as always, you get a discount for dropping rugs off at our facility.
OUR RUG CLEANING PROCESS
STEP #1 INSPECTION
Jeff is a Master Rug Cleaner. His careful evaluation and inspection of your rug will ensure the proper cleaning method is used to maximize your rugs cleanliness and appearance. We will measure your rug, take pictures, and complete a detailed rug inspection report on your rug. Jeff will call you if he sees any issues with the rug that have not been already discussed..
STEP #2 DUST REMOVAL
Before washing your area rug, your rug is dusted to remove particulate soil. Our dusting system is gentle yet a highly effective way to remove literally pounds of dust, dirt and small particles from the rug, which are impossible to remove with a standard vacuum cleaner. This dust contains dirt as well as silica which has sharp edges. As these sharp edges are compressed against the wool fibers with foot traffic during normal use, the fibers are cut and damaged, reducing the useful life of your rug. Thorough dust and abrasive particulate removal is one of the key reasons your rugs need to be professionally cleaned every one to two years, depending on their location and the amount of soiling they receive. Air dusting is also performed to remove the smaller particulate soils.
STEP #3 RUG WASHING
We always wash each rug by hand!
Rug cleaning requires making sure your rug is colorfast (many rugs can be ruined due to “dye bleed”) prior to washing. We test your rug then determine the best plan of action based on the color stability of the dyes. We select gentle cleaning agents based on your rug's condition and we use a clear-water rinse to wash out all removable stains, dirt, and odors. We perform this rug cleaning process by hand, and we repeat it until the rug water washes clear and we are satisfied with the results. We use special technology including our centrifuge to remove almost all of the water from your rug prior to the drying process.
We do not use a washing tank (your rug washed with other rugs - yuk) or a conveyor belt machine (like a pizza oven) where your rug is feed into one end and pops out the other end.
In the rug cleaning business, it is well known that a hand washed rug using state of the art equipment and cleaning agents is the best way to wash a rug. High production rug cleaning facilities many times use a one-size-fits-all rug cleaning machine (conveyor belt - like a pizza oven) or large wash tub (your rug with many other rugs - yuk) to clean rugs fast (but not necessarily well) and to maximize their profits. Their "cheap, good enough" approach does not necessarily serve the customer who desires the cleanest rug possible. It's kinda like getting your car hand washed by a detail company or going through a car wash. Moreover, rugs that are not thoroughly cleaned and thoroughly rinsed get dirtier more quickly and require more frequent cleanings.
STEP #4 RUG RINSING AND WATER REMOVAL
The RugRevolution "ProSS-1300" is the most advanced rug centrifuge wringer ever developed for extracting water out of area rugs. After a thorough submersion washing, your rug is placed into our centrifuge. As your rug spins, fresh water is introduced to achieve a complete and thorough rinse. This rinse continues until the water is clear and your rug is fresh and clean. Rugs that are not rinsed thoroughly get dirtier faster. The extraction process removes over 98% of the water which helps reduce dry times significantly, making your rugs clean, soft and fresh again.
STEP #5 CONTROLLED RUG DRYING & FRINGE DETAIL
The drying process includes grooming the rug for the best results to deliver a luxuriously soft rug to you. Our rug cleaning facility is temperature controlled including keeping humidity down. We heat the entire warehouse in the winter and air condition the entire warehouse in the summer thus controlling the humidity. Maintaining low humidity is essential for fast dry times which prevents mold/mildew growth which can cause odors if rugs are not dried quickly. Once the rug is dry, we perform any fringe detailing needed, trim any loose fibers, and do one final inspection to make sure the rug cleaning results satisfy our high quality standards.
STEP #6 OPTIONAL RUG PROTECTOR, MOTH REPELLENT, RUG WRAPPING & RUG PAD
As an optional service, we can apply fabric protection and moth deterrent to prevent your rug from future staining and moth problems. We can deliver and install a custom-sized, non-skid rug pad to prolong the life and beauty of your fine area rug. A quality rug pad custom-sized and selected especially for your rug for hard flooring surfaces or carpeted areas is a sound investment that will protect and extend the life of your rug. Finally, we provide professional rug wrapping services for rug transport and storage.
STEP #7 FINAL INSPECTION & DELIVERY
We deliver your fresh, clean rug to you, bring it into your home and place it in its original location. In addition, we will move any furniture as needed and install the rug with the rug pad properly in place. All of our work is guaranteed. We do everything to make sure you are 100% satisfied with our rug cleaning services. You'll look forward to walking across your clean rug again!
