Rug Cleaning like you’ve never seen before!
Rugs are excellent filters and are great at storing all those allergens, dirt and dust particles that vacuuming alone can not reach and remove.

Dry Soil Removal
The dry soil removing processes are an extremely important part of cleaning a rug properly. If we were to skip the dry soil removal steps then adding water to all that soil in the back of your rug will result in turning those soils into a muddy solution which will wick up through the rug fibres while it’s drying, therefore leaving the rug in no better condition than it was before cleaning. We regularly remove around 7-8lb of dry soils from rugs that’s the average weight of a new born baby!
Our 3 steps in removing dry soils from your rug are:
Power Vacuum – Using an industrial vacuum cleaner we will remove the initial dry soils sitting close to the surface of the rug.
Rug Beating – The beating machine gently beats the back of the rug breaking up and loosening all those compacted soils.
Air Dusting – This is where we jet powerful streams of air into the back of the rug, removing any remaining dry soils.
With extensive knowledge in rug construction, fibres and cleaning products, we will choose the best process and products to clean your rug and make it look and feel the best it possibly can. We even use specific products that are suited to your rugs fibre such as Woolsafe tested products for Wool rugs to keep the fibres feel nice and soft and will feel completely refreshed.
Rug Cleaning – This is where the rug will be placed in the rug washing pit filled with about an inch of water and the rug cleaning solution that is best suited to your rug, this is worked into the rug either mechanically or by hand depending on the rugs construction, this process is repeated on the reverse side of the rug for a truly thorough clean.
Rinsing – We are now ready to rinse your rug, All the soapy water, soils and debris are washed away, with a thorough rinse with cold water. This process is repeated several times until the water runs clear.
Time to Dry
The drying process is a critical part of rug cleaning, that’s why many company’s will not clean you rug, because they don’t have the facilities to dry the rugs sufficiently and effectively. A surface clean may make your rug “look” clean for a short period of time but the soils soon wick back up to the surface.
Spin Dry – We use a state of the art piece of equipment called a Centrifuge, a machine which can spin your rug and remove all that excess moisture in seconds, this eliminates any issues that can be caused by leaving a rug wet for too long. Your rug will come out feeling slightly damp ready to be hung and dried thoroughly
Drying Room – Once your rug has been spun in the centrifuge it the needs to dry, Depending on your rugs fibres and construction it will either be hung to dry or laid to dry in the drying room. We can can speed dry your rugs in the drying room with the use of industrial fans and dehumidifiers.
