At Rug Expo, we employ experienced rug cleaners. Other firms under “Area Rug Cleaners San Diego”
would look at one rug just as the same as all others-- and that can lead to disastrous results.
Our cleaners first inspect your rug to verify its origin for proper care. They consider factors
such as fabric, dyes and colorfastness, construction, knotting and more to determine the correct
(and safe) green rug cleaning process. They also look for any bleeds, tears, pet stains, and any
type of color damage before they being. Depending on your rug, here are some of the steps we
will take to get your rug like new again.
The dirt your rug accumulates gets rooted into your rug, making it harder to clean. A simple
at-home vacuum cleaning is not enough, nor is a steam clean or even a “Rug Doctor” rentable
machine. Our dusting process and machines loosen all the dust and particles before the actual
rug washing. Just take a look at the dust loosened in the adjacent image! Typical carpet and dry
cleaners only surface clean rugs, which leaves dirt and crumbs embedded. This not only keeps
your rug dirty, but it also damages the rug in the process. With surface cleaning, the dirt and
particles create a harder rug base, meaning your rug will stiffen and will not last as long as
it should. We make sure every speck of dust is removed, even if it takes multiple tries..
WASHING & RINSING
When our experts start their work, our rug cleaning staff scrubs your rug with the proper kind
of soap, providing eco-friendly and green rug wash, and then rinses it gently but thoroughly. We
use a 100% rug hand wash method. With our professional rug cleaning, we ensure that your rug
gets thorough, deep clean. We rinse your rug in between every scrubbing in order to remove all
the dirt and grime. These two steps are repeated AS LONG AS IT TAKES for the rinse water to run
clear. The amount of dirty water that first comes from a rug we clean is a testament to just how
much dirt rugs can hold and how much we remove!
DRYING & BRUSHING
After gently washing area rugs, we remove the moisture from the rug as quickly as possible. We
use a roller, centrifugal spinner or extractor to remove the water from the rug. After drying,
our rug cleaners brush the rugs to make sure the rug fibers flow in their natural direction or
their nap. After this, we transport the rug to a dry room where it hangs over rollers.
After drying, the rug is groomed and fitted to look as new as the day you got it. We trim the
rug so there isn't any hanging materials or distorted threads. This ensures that your rug will
be left with a smooth surface with clean edges.
Finally, a finisher machine softens your rug. This gives the rug a nice, clean look that leaves
it freshened and renewed.
