1. Inspection
When a rug is inspected in the plant the whole rug is completely visible. Often customers are unaware of existing problems because furniture is on the rug and it is not entirely visible. An example is moths that eat from the back to the face until it is a serious problem like this and make repair recommendations. At this time it is also measured and billed accordingly.

2. Dusting / Beating
A carpet’s worst enemy is dry soil. Dry soil consists of small sharp, particles that sooner or later will wear through any rug. To effectively remove dry soil a rug has to be fed into a large beating machine. The beater pounds, vibrates, and vacuum the entire rug while upside down so dirt and sand can fall out freely.

3. Spotting
The next step is to pre-treat stains. The rugs are unrolled one by one, the stains are identified and propery treated. Some Common stains we’ve treated here range from Wine, Pet Urine, Blood, Salt, Ink, Oil, Fruit, as well as Paint Stains.

4. Presoaking
After the rug is treated for stains, we start our presoaking. Hundreds of gallons of warm soap flakes and warm water are pumped onto each each rug. Rotary scrubbers then go over each rug. (the key to cleaning an area rug is a lot of soap and water; due to the fact wool has a natural water repellency.)

Detergents or chemicals of must not under any circumstances be used. They reduce the fat content, and therefore the luster and durability of the wool. Superficial washing cleans only the pile and presses the dirt into the foundation, causing the basic fabric to rot.

5. Washing / Grooming
After each piece is submerged it is a fed into a huge washing machine. The first step of the machine is a traveling jet. As the rug moves further along, three lines of soft brushes scrub every inch of the rug. Next, the first rinse followed by a bath and double rinse which totally flushes the rug. The last part of the washing process is a wringer that squeezes the excess water out of the rug with 130lbs of pressure. We then groom the pile, treat fringes, deodorize, etc.

6. Drying
After grooming, each rug is hung on a pole and conveyered into the dry room. The room is heated to where the rugs dry in 2 to 4 hours. We also exhaust the humidity and circulate the air to control the drying time.

7. Inspection
After the rug is completely dried, it is conveyered down to an inspection station. If need be, it is re-spotted, vacuumed, etc. Once accepted, it is wrapped and ready to go back to the customer.

However, after inspection of your rug, if necessary, we will repeat this entire process again.
