What is our rug cleaning process in Cambridge?

We have been spending a few hours cleaning this lovely massive Moroccan Berber Rug in our rug cleaning plant in Cambridge. Three strong men were needed to move it!

What is our rug cleaning process?

We offer a specialist rug cleaning service in Cambrridgshire. 

We do not use any harmful cleaning products and we have a team of specialist rug cleaners who will ensure your rug  will get the best cleaning and restored to its original state.

We have a 9 steps professional rug cleaning process including:

1. Audit of your rug, to check the type of dye which has been used in your rug, to ensure there is no colour loss. And also the type of method used to weave the rug. We will also test the dye.

2. Rug Dusting – some rugs can hold up to 1 pound of dirt! So we vacuum them first. Once the pre-wash inspection is completed, the first step is dusting. Some rugs can hold up to one pound of dirt per square foot before it will "look" dirty. Cleaning a rug with pounds of fine grit and dirt in the foundation creates dusting is important. We use 2 systems for the dusting:
​- our Rug Dusting Machine will vibrate and remove the most stubborn soil and sediments caught deep in the fibres of your precious rug.
- We will also use our Air Dusting System: we have tested so many methods to remove as much of the soil as possible. The most effective way is combining vacuuming and vibrating the soil out using our rug dusting machine in combination with a very powerful but gentle air dusting system.

3. We put the rug in a special rug bath – All rugs with odour causing sources such as urine, mould, mildew, or insect infestations require decontamination.

4. Rug washing The rug will be submerged and given a cold water shampoo bath, using soft brushes for mild agitation

5. Rug rinse – Removal off all cleaning and soil residue by means of clear water rinse is vital of achieving a thoroughly clean rug.

6. Rug Centrifruge drying system – This ensures that the drying of your rug is speeded up 10 times compared to any other method used by other cleaning companies.

7. Rug protector – After the rug has been cleaned we can move on to applying the protector. This barrier coats each fibre to protect against re-soiling and staining. This allows you to simply mop up spillages as it prevents the fibre absorbing spills.

8. Rug drying – Air movers and dehumidifiers are used to help facilitate drying, without the use of high heat (so there is no worry of shrinkage).

9. Rug fringe work -  Fringes are inspected and occasionally washed an additional time.
 They are then dried. The rug is given a final grooming with a brush.

Your rug will now be as good as new!
