1. 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.
2. Pre treatment
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.
Dry Compound Cleaning
On some water sensitive fibres it is not safe to clean with water so we use solvent and dry compound instead. This ensures cleaning is able to be performed but without the use of water based 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.
