We consider rug dusting one of if not the most important step to a great rug cleaning. Years ago you may remember your grandmother or mother taking the rugs outside, hanging them over a clothesline, and beating the dust out of them. This was usually done after a good vacuuming. It was amazing to watch just how much dust came flying out. Fast forward to now and we have similar super charged yet safe rug dusting process.

A beautiful clean fringe can really set off any oriental rug. Rug fringe is usually cotton fiber and like any other cotton fiber it can become discolored, yellow, or brown over time. In our arsenal of rug cleaning products we do have products that are specifically designed to clean rug fringe and tackle the discoloration, yellowing, and browning issues.
The first step of the wet washing process is to pre-condition the rug. Pre-conditioning the rug allows a safe cleaning agent to begin breaking up the soiling that has bonded to the rug fiber. For rugs with pet damage, we have products specifically designed to break down the problem so that it can be completely removed from the rug.
Following the pre-conditioning process there are many times we apply an additional cleaner that we agitate gently into the rug with a rotary machine. This process breaks the bond of the soiling even more to help with stubborn soiling that needs a little extra attention and work. This part of the process ensures we have done everything we can to break up the soiling so that it can be rinsed away.
We rinse the rug thoroughly by passing lots and lots of clean water through the rug. The rinsing removes all of our cleaning products and the broken up soiling from the rug. We continue to rinse the rug until the water runs clear ensuring your rug receive the best rug cleaning in knoxville.
After the washing process the rug is extracted and is typically hung to dry. There are some rugs that require to dry them flat on the ground. Whether we hang dry or have to flat dry your rug we make sure that the rug is dried properly.
