Oriental and Area Rug Cleaning

In-Plant Rug Cleaning Advantages

At Action Restoration & Property Services, we are equipped to properly care for all types of Oriental and area rugs, giving them the specialized care and attention they deserve. Having your rug cleaned in our plant allows us to give it several treatments for a more thorough cleaning, controlled drying, and the use of various tools that are not available on location.

Our Nine Step Oriental & Area Rug Cleaning Process

Step 1: Pre-Inspection and Pick Up - We will determine as much as we possibly can about the type of rug and inherent qualities that may affect cleaning. We will outline the expected results and cleaning "prescription". Our company will come to your home to pick up your rug, or you may drop it by our shop.

Step 2: Dry Soil Removal - Woven rugs, especially hand knotted rugs are designed to hide dry soil. A few years ago, the Eureka company did a study and found that a 9 x 12 could hide 87 pounds of dirt! WOW! We use a variety of techniques to "dust" the rugs from the front and back.

Step 3: Pre-Condition - Depending on fiber content and soiling type, the rug will be pre-treated to emulsify the soils.

Step 4: Pre-Spot and Fringe Preparation- Any potentially difficult spots will be pre-treated with special solutions to increase chances of removal. The fringe is also pre-treated for maximum soil removal.

Step 5: Shampoo - The rug will be pre-treated to emulsify the soils. Most rugs are cleaned with an Oriental Rug Shampoo that is especially designed to get maximum cleaning while protecting sensitive natural fibers.

Step 6: Steam Clean - Depending on the type of rug it will be steam cleaned with industry leading extraction equipment on both sides or washed in a wash pit designed especially for Oriental Rugs.

Step 7: Accelerated Speed Dry - Once the soil is rinsed away, the rug is dried flat with multiple high powered fans in a controlled environment. Proper drying is essential to avoid unnatural shrinkage.

Step 8: Finishing - When the rug is dry, it is combed and finished with soft groomers made for specialty rugs.

Step 9: Post Inspection and Delivery - Our cleaning specialist will give the rug a final inspection and release it for pick up or delivery. Your rug will be wrapped in brown craft paper to protect it from dust and environmental soils until it is picked up or delivered. Upon delivery, we will lay the rug for you.
