It’s time for some spring cleaning, and there’s no better place to start than with your carpet and rugs. If you have an area rug somewhere in your home, we’d like to explain the process we use to get your rugs looking and feeling their best again. While regular vacuuming is recommended to keep your rug clean and allergen free, you should only have to deep clean your run every 12 to 24 months. Here are the first 5 steps to a clean rug and a cleaner home. 1: Pre-Inspection, Photo Documentation and Consultation - This is the first thing we do when we receive a client's rug. We do a detailed inspection and photo document any irregularities we find. 2: 24-Hour Dye & Color Fastness Test - To determine if a rug has the potential for dye migration (bleeding), we do a 24 hours dye test on each of the colors. 3: Dry Soil Removal - Removing dry soiling involves a dusting and vacuuming process that thoroughly gets most of the dry contaminants out of your rugs. 4: Pre-Treatment - We use Wool Safe products for rug cleaning. They are specially designed for the safe and effective removal of soil in wool rugs. 5: Submersion Wash & Agitation; Rinse, Flush and Extraction - Our specially designed wash pit is where the rugs are submerged, agitated, and rinsed. Then they moved to an extraction area and get vacuumed with extraction tools. Articles with this disclaimer may not represent the beliefs or core values of Cleanville.
