Rug Cleaning Facts

1….  A typical 8×10 Wool Rug is capable of holding 50+ pounds of dry soil while still looking visibly clean. For this reason the dusting portion of our cleaning system is crucial. Rugs are placed on a platform and are vibrated using special equipment to remove as much dry soil as possible prior to getting them wet.

2…. On many rugs it is possible for the dyes to bleed if subjected to the wrong chemicals, too much heat, too much moisture, or not dried in a timely manner. We always check for dye stability issues prior to cleaning.
