Dry soil removal
We need to beat the soiling out to ensure maximum removal before any moisture is introduced. This is done with the rug upside down and mounted on a grid to allow soil particles to fall out of the rug pile. We subsequently use a powerful upright vacuum cleaner to remove the dry soil from both sides of the rug.
We also apply a Woolsafe cleaning pre spray to assist with the soil removal. This increases the chances that all of the marks on the rugs will be removed in the wash pit. On modern synthetic rugs more powerful cleaning products can be used to break down this soil and separate it from the fibres.
After the dry soil is removed we treat any spots with Woolsafe solutions to allow time for them to be removed prior to washing. This pre treatment will help with the removal of many of these marks when the rug is immersed in the wash pit and cleaned with a Woolsafe shampoo for rugs.
To remove the maximum amount of soil we brush the carpet to help the cleaning solutions contact the soil deep in the carpet. This ensures the maximum amount of soil is removed whilst immersed in the wash pit.
When all treatments have been completed the rug will be rinsed and all the excess moisture removed to enable the fibres to dry completely clean.
Any fringes will be separately cleaned and treated to remove any browning issues.
Drying and pile setting
After cleaning we hang rugs on a drying rack to allow them to fully dry out then we treat and dry the fringes. We use air blowers and dehumidifiers to speed up this process. The pile is aligned during cleaning and when dry it is brushed out again with a pile brush.
Dry Compound Cleaning
On some water sensitive fibres it is not safe to clean with water so we use dry compound instead. This ensures cleaning is able to be performed but without the use of water and cleaning solutions. This method allows the capture of soiling into the compound where it is trapped ready for extraction with a vacuum machine when dryed out.
After cleaning services: -
After cleaning the rugs can be treated with a stain protector to help guard against further staining in the future. This can be applied after it is cleaned and dryed ready for when the rug is returned to you.
Shown here is the effect of moth larvae feeding on the keratin in the wool fibre. They hatch in the pile and consume it whilst growing. We can apply a moth proofing treatment to wool rugs to prevent insect infestations or supply it in a bottle for you to use where required. Find out about our mothproofing treatment here.
