Just like our superior carpet cleaning services, The Spot Man treats your area rugs as if they were our own. Each rug receives the individual attention it needs to achieve the cleanest results possible. We even offer a 100% Happiness Guarantee, to prove we mean business. We clean and restore wool, silk, cotton, camel, sisal, coir and modern synthetics. We clean Persian, afghan, flokatti, druheri, tibetin rugs and many more! We cannot guarantee complete stain removal on material fibers.
We use the latest advances in carpet cleaning technology to clean rugs that clients thought would never be clean again. How do we do it?
Area Rug Cleaning Process
Step 1We inspect for tears, holes, moth trails, existing color fading or bleeding.
Step 2The rug is placed face down on a special grid and a rug duster is guided over the back that beats the small particle soil out of the rug. We have gotten 2 lbs. out of a 5X8 rug.
Step 3We vacuum the front and back of the rug.
Step 4Next, we perform a color bleed test to determine the proper solution to use in the cleaning process.
Step 5If the rug has pet odor or urine smells, we soak it overnight in a special solution guaranteed to remove the odor.
Step 6The rug is rinsed in a custom designed bath that allows complete submersion of the rug.
Step 7The final step in the cleaning process is drawing fresh water up through the back of the rug. This ensures the removal of all remaining soil and contaminates, leaving only clean fresh fibers.
Step 8The rug is moved over a grid where all excess moisture is vacuumed out.
Step 9Drying takes place on a custom made drying table that blows air up from the bottom. This table also allows some rugs to be blocked to help correct their shape if necessary.
Step 10The rug is placed on a hanging frame with air-movers speeding the drying process.
Step 11Specialized processes are used on the remaining stains.
Step 12The fringe is cleaned and combed.
Step 13Color repairs are performed.
Step 14The rugs get a final vacuuming.
Step 15The rug is wrapped in breathable craft paper if you will be storing it.
Step 16We schedule pickup or delivery of your clean rug.
The Spot Man offers a 100% Happiness Guarantee, which means we will perform all cleaning services to your complete satisfaction at the agreed upon price. If you are not happy with our work, we will re-clean the area for free.
