RUG CLEANING (HAND WASHING)
For us each rug is unique and we know the value it has for our customers, so our technicians and cleaners will treat your rugs with the utmost care and respect that they deserve. Whether it is a Persian antique, oriental or a regular modern rug. We know you love your rug and that is how we will treat it.
STAGE 1: INSPECTING YOU RUG PRIOR TO CLEANING:
Labeling, registration, and prior inspection of the rugs, we take photos and notes of any damage, pet stains and any other stains.
STAGE 2: COLOUR FASTNESS TESTING:
Sometimes the colours can run so we always carry out colour fastness tests prior to cleaning.
STAGE 3: SPOT TREATMENT AND FRINGE WHITENING:
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.
STAGE 4: PREWASH AND WASH:
Most rugs are cleaned with an Oriental Rug Shampoo that is especially designed to get maximum cleaning while protecting sensitive natural fibers.
The rugs are always washed on both sides and twice so we can eliminate 100% dirt, mites, bacteria, fungi and dust.
The fat and the pollution that adheres in the rug´s fiber can be removed in the prewash and so providing us the wash and rinse process. For the prewash and wash process, abundant treated water and natural soaps like “Marsella Soap” is needed for maximum cleaning and protection of different rug fibers (wool, silk, cotton...). This work is done in a wash pool with 10 cm high specially designed for this purpose.
Keep in mind that washing a rug with a brush opens and damages the weaving of the carpet and blurs the pattern on the rug. For this reason we wash the rugs in our factory with a toothless rake, dragging the dirt.
STAGE 5: SPIN & DRYING:
Spin: The moisture is a potential threat to fabrics, so at this stage the rug is manually rolled on a special mechanism designed and patented by RAHMATIRUGS LTD, to prevent bending and breakage and so we get water extraction up to 90% and get the best quality spin that exists in the world market.
Drying room: In our factory we have a high-end dryer equipped with temperature and humidity gauges and indirect airflow for optimum drying maximum within 24 hours.
PHASE 6: WASH AND RINSE
At this stage we repeat again the stages 4 and 5, achieving optimum cleaning of rugs and this should remove any remaining dirt or dust left on your rug.
