Initial InspectionAn essential step in the rug cleaning and repair process is the initial inspection of the rug. At Khazai Rug Cleaning, our expert knowledge allows us to identify all aspects of your oriental rugs to determine the best treatment and cleaning techniques.
Learn MoreDustingYour grandma was right when she would beat the rug outside. Dusting a rug is the single most important step in the cleaning process. Oriental rugs collect dirt, grit, and dust over time which can cause premature wear to your rugs and to your health.
Learn MoreFloodingThe best way to deep clean a handmade, wool rug is to flood it with water. We do this by completely submerging the entire rug. Similar to the centuries-old method of washing area rugs by immersing them in the cold water flow of a mountain-fed river.
Learn MoreCleaningWhen it comes to actually cleaning your rug, we use completely natural chemicals that are best suited for your particular rug and situation. Your rug is then scrubbed thoroughly, pulling out any excess dirt and odors which are trapped inside the fibers.
Learn MoreRinsingAfter cleaning the entire rug we then rinse the rug with fresh water to remove any remaining detergents. We use rollers to flush out the majority of the detergent(s) from the rug.
Learn MoreExtractionExtraction is the process of removing the remaining water in a rug after rinsing. Using a powerful extractor, we remove most of the moisture from the rug as quickly as possible.
Learn MoreDryingAssuring all moisture is removed from the rug is very important. We suspend the rug on a drying rack and use air movers to quickly and thoroughly dry any remaining moisture.
Learn MoreFringe Cleaning & GroomingIn the ending stages of the cleaning process. We focus on detailing the fringe. Once again, this is done by hand. We pay special attention to giving the fringe an even and bright appearance. If your rug has a type of pile that tends to come loose and stick out over the rest of the rug’s pile, then our professional grooming will help trim these parts down to give your rug a smooth, flat surface.
Learn MoreFinishingThis is the last step of the cleaning process is finishing. Finishing requires a well-trained eye for detail. During the finishing we soften the fibers of your rug, giving you a soft and clean rug that is as fresh as when it was brand new.
Learn MoreFinal InspectionOur expert staff takes a final look over the rug to ensure the rug is in peak condition before being returned to the customer. At Khazai Rug Cleaning, we are committed to providing the very best rug cleaning services.
Experts recommend having your oriental rug cleaned by professionals every two to three years. Thorough cleanings prevent grit, dirt, and soil from building up in the foundation, which can damage the oriental rug’s fibers and restore the pile fibers’ natural luster.
At Khazai Rug Cleaning, we pride ourselves on our expert oriental rug washing process.
We look for problems like a color run, tears, holes, dry rot, worn areas, stains, fading, damaged fringe, unraveling edges, discoloration, moth and carpet beetle damage during our inspection, previous repairs, animal hair, and pet stains.
Knowing these details provides our experts at Khazai Rug Cleaning with the information needed to determine the correct process and rug cleaning services unique to your rugs. That is an essential step in the rug cleaning and repair process at Khazai Rug Cleaning.
Our expert knowledge also allows us to identify all aspects of your oriental rugs to determine the best treatment and cleaning techniques. We note the many factors such as the rug condition, rug type, age, pattern, origin, rug foundation, knotting type, fringe, color, and fiber content.
Carpet and dry cleaners don’t have this specialized knowledge.
You should take your grandma’s method and beat on the back of your rugs in the yard. Dusting an oriental rug is the most critical step in the cleaning process.
Oriental rugs collect dirt, grit, pet dander, dust mites, pollen, and dust in the foundation that can gradually cause a premature tear to the rug and be harmful to your health.
Before cleaning an oriental rug, one must beat the dirt and dust out of the rug’s foundation. If the dirt and filth are still there before washing the rug, it turns into a slimy substance that dries and will cause premature wear from the inside out, damaging your rug.
Additionally, this substance is much harder to remove after improper cleaning. At Khazai Rug Cleaning, we use a particular dusting machine for this purpose, and we repeat the process until no grit or dust comes out.
Most other cleaning companies do not remove this embedded dirt and dust, which means that the rug is not clean. We have re-cleaned many rugs previously taken to “professional” cleaners and removed enormous amounts of dirt.
The best method to deep clean a hand-made rug is to flood it with water. Our initial rinsing process, otherwise known as “Flooding,” helps make all dirt looser and all dried materials more liquified.
That is why we soak the rug entirely in the first place. That is similar to the centuries-old washing area rugs by immersing them in a mountain-fed river’s cool water flow.
When it comes to cleaning your oriental rug, we use entirely natural pH balanced detergents that are the most efficient for your precious rug. Then, we scrub your oriental rug thoroughly, pulling out the remaining dirt and odors trapped inside the fibers.
Washing a rug in this manner restores the natural luster of the rug fibers.
Next, we rinse the rug again. Next, we soak the rug deep into the water and flush out the remaining detergents by a roller.
Extraction is when we remove the remaining water from the rug after the cleaning and rinsing process. Using a powerful extractor, we remove most of the moisture from the rug as quickly as possible.
The rugs are air-dried in a rack or lying flat using fans. Next, we touch up the fringes. After washing and drying, sometimes the fringe has some mineralization or has dried and looks unkempt. We wash and rinse the fringe to bring it back to life.
Finishing removes any remaining soil on the tips of the rug fibers caused by wicking. Finishing makes the rug fibers feel incredibly soft & fluffy; the rug’s colors really “POP!” out and protect the rug from re-staining.
The last part of our cleaning process is the Final Inspection. Here a rug is thoroughly checked to ensure that all of the services were correctly performed and the rug meets our high standards of excellence.
Khazai Rugs guarantees all cleaning services.
During the final step, the 5th generation owners in the rug industry will inspect every rug to ensure it meets expert standards. If any part is not up to the standard, your rug will go back through the cleaning process.
