1. Measuring and Pre-Inspection

This helps us identify what problems your rug is facing, allowing us to meet your expectations. We guarantee accurate pricing.

2. Colour Test

This allows us to ensure all rugs are safely cleaned and that you get the best possible results.

3. Thorough Vacuuming

In this phase, we’ll remove damaging sand and grit from your carpet. Left unabated, these substances can cut fibres and shorten the life of your rug.

4. Treatment of Stubborn Spots

During this phase, every effort will made to remove troublesome spots, without damaging the rug or causing colour loss.

5. Rotary Shampoo

This gently agitates the carpet, safely suspending soil and leaving the rug truly clean and fresh.

6. Clear-Water Rinse and Extraction

This process is comparable to rinsing hair and ensures no sticky, dirt-attracting residue is left behind. All soil and detergents in the fibres are washed away.

7. Application of Protector

Our high-grade fabric protector gives your rug the ability to resist spots and stains.

8. Drying and Post-Clean Inspection

Now, your rug is inspected and hung up. Powerful air movers are used to speed the drying process. This prevents damage and “browning.”

9. Hand-Finished Fringes

This detangles, cleans, and restores softness and colour.

10. Wrapping for Storage or Delivery

Finally, all rugs are inspected, carefully vacuumed, and wrapped in heavy plastic or paper for storage and delivery.
