Over time an area rug collects dust, dirt and debris and 79% of the dirt in a rug is dry particle soils. The first step to a cleaning of a rug is by sending it through our state of the art RUG DUSTING MACHINE!. Although regular vacuuming or beating with a broom can remove some of the dust close to the surface, a vacuum is not powerful enough to remove dirt that is deeply imbedded within the foundation of the rug. With the RUG DUSTING MACHINE, we are able to gently remove 100% of loose dirt, dust and debris from the rug. This is considered the most important step of the cleaning process. The RUG DUSTING MACHINE is an essential tool for the serious rug cleaning facility. Removal of dry soil makes all other cleaning procedures much easier. Simply place the rug face own on the conveyor and it will be drawn into the machine with 100's of soft leather belts gently slapping the rug and loosening impacted soil in addition to the gentle harmonic vibrating massager on the back of the rug.
This allows the dry soil to fall out of the rug and be deposited into the bottom of the machine. Lighter soil will be picked up by the powerful fan and be captured by the filter. The rug then drops down to the floor on the back side of the duster. The dirt is removed and has made the pile of the rug open and fresh and ready for the washing process.
Once washed by hand, the rug is again washed through the rug washing machine which uses a high powered jet of Ph balanced detergent and soft water. There are four sets of soft nylon brushes that are raised or lowered depending on individuals rugs thickness. After the washing process the rug is thoroughly rinsed using the state of the art equipment specially designed to rinse all detergents and remove all residues from the rug fibers and restore the natural textures of your rug. The rinsing process is constantly adding fresh filtered soft water to the back and front of the rug. Removal of all soils is now complete and you can be certain that all residues are removed from the fibers of the rug.
After the rug cleaning washing process, the next step is the rinsing and wringer machine. Rugs and carpets are extremely heavy when they are wet. Rugs are liable to grow mildew if they remain damp for too long. Therefore a quick drying time is vital especially when dealing with wool fibers, which absorb and hold 70% of their weight in moisture. The wringer reduces the drying time. Rugs enter the wringer completely saturated by after being wrung out they do not even drip after hanging them up in our dry tower room.
