By the time your rug starts looking dull and dirty, it’s already holding pounds of dirt. That’s right… pounds! An area rug can transform a living space from a house to a home, but dirt from foot traffic is inevitable. If you’re looking for rug cleaning, Albuquerque trusts the experts at Steamaway Carpet Cleaning. You can rest assured that your rug is going to get the utmost care and we’ll return it to you looking brilliant and restored with vivid color.
Our Rug Washing Process
In order to deliver the best rug washing services possible, Steamaway Carpet Cleaning’s process is a lot more complex than most people might imagine. Going above and beyond a simple wash and dry, our 11 step process makes us the best in our industry.
Step 1: Inspection
We start our process by visually inspecting the rug for issues and using Xenon light to identify stains, dye variations, worn spots, or white spots that have been covered up by dirt.
Step 2: Dye and Color Test
Next, we will test part of the rug to see if any of the color’s bleed off upon wetting it. This avoids causing any significant discoloration or damage.
Step 3: Dusting
We want to get as much of the dirt and dust out of your rug as possible before adding water! We do this simply by setting your rug on top of a specially-designed grate and running an intense dusting machine over it. In addition, we use compressed forced air to blow the remaining dirt and dust out the rug, both top and bottom.
Step 4: Spot Treatment
We treat any spots with a specialized gentle cleaner to loosen stains while preserving the fabric.
Step 5: Optional Pet Urine Treatment
If you have a pet that makes a mess, we can use enzymes to eliminate urine, vomit, and fecal particles without damaging the rug fibers.
Step 6: Washing
Now it’s finally time to wash! We use brushes and sprayers to carefully tend to every inch of the rug by hand. We avoid heat and harsh soaps, using cool water and mild shampoo to give your rug the personal attention it deserves to last many more years to come.
Step 7: Rinsing
Now that your rug has been shampooed, it is time to rinse the shampoo and soils away with a pH buffered conditioned rinse.
Step 8: Drying
We use simple air moves and dehumidifiers to create an environment where your rug can gently dry to avoid high heat. We will either lay the rug flat on an elevated bed or hang it to dry on our unique drying rack. This process prevents the rug from getting twisted or warped.
Step 9: Grooming and Detailing
Once your rug has undergone the drying process, now it’s time to fluff the pile up and pay special attention to the fringe. We hand brush your rug with a horsehair brush!
Step 10: Optional Protective Measures
To go the extra mile, we can infuse a fiber protector specifically formulated for fine fabrics. This will help ensure your rug is protected against stains.
Step 11: Inspection and Delivery
Last but not least, we will personally inspect your rug and bring the Xenon light back to make sure we eliminated all bacteria and other debris. We will check to make sure the rug is completely dry and that the fringe is clean, wrap your rug up, and deliver it straight to your home or business!
