Onsite Rug Cleaning
To clean a rug on site at a customer’s home requires a fully trained technician, the fibres of the rug need to be identified before applying any cleaning solutions, Fibre identification is an important process this ensures the correct cleaning product for the type of rug to be cleaned are used. This is done by doing a test piece on the rug first in an inconspicuous place to be sure no damage can be caused.
A good deep vacuum of with a power head vacuum cleaner is best to get deep down into the base of the rug, this will release the dust and grit before the cleaning process. Releasing the dust and grit will prolong the life of the rug, this grit can act like sand paper when walked on and do damage to the fibres at the base of the rug, this can cause fibres to detach and over time leave bare patches.
After the vacuum and steam clean is done, this will clean each fibre of the rug if done properly and make the rug feel and look clean again.
When a rug cleaning company comes to collect a rug, and take it away to be cleaned at a specially designed rug washing facility. Then a different cleaning process is done, the main cleaning is still done with steam cleaning, but there are a few steps before this. The rug would be hung inside the cleaning room, then compressed air is used to blow out the dust and grit from within the fibres, this is the most effective way to release the in ground dust particulates.
Then a thorough power head vacuum is done over the rug to ensure it’s completely free from any dust and grit, then the rug is deep steam cleaned this process will not only clean the rug but will also kill any bacteria within the fibres, leaving just the natural feel and look of the rug. The rug is then hung in the drying room to dry naturally, then a final inspection and deodorise is done to give the best possible results.
Also a protective coating, called a fabric protection can be applied to the rug after the cleaning process; this will help to prevent little accidents, with spills from drinks or if a cat or dog urinates on the rug, urine is one of the hardest smells to get rid of in any fabric and has to be handled by a professional using special antibacterial solutions and neutralisers for a successful outcome. The fabric protection will also help protect the fibres from wear and tear prolonging the life of the rug.
