We dust every rug before hand-washing. You will be amazed to find how much fine dirt is accumulated in the rug pile/foundation. We use a 6-inch rug-bath for submerging/soaking rugs for some time. The water is drained- the rug is removed from the bath – it is hand-washed with safe special shampoo and brush. The rug is flipped – front to back & the hand-washing process is repeated. The rug is rinsed thoroughly – removing all shampoo (this is determined by taking pH readings of the water leaving the washing pit). Water is carefully extracted from the rug and hung to dry in a temperature-controlled setting. We use rug cleaning products approved by the Carpet and Rug Institute for residential cleaning, which is safe for children, pets, and the environment.

The 1st Carpet Cleaning rug cleaning process starts with a dry vacuum to remove surface dirt such as crumbs, hairs and grit etc. Followed by a cleaning test in an unseen area which is a stipulation of our insurers. Individual marks and heavily soiled areas are hand treated and then a pre-cleaning solution is applied. Using our own experience we will then select the best method to clean your rug.
First, they are vacuumed on both sides to remove all loose particulate soil. Next, The Natural cleaning solution is applied. This carbonated solution will gently emulsify dirt and stains then propel them to the surface where they can be extracted. If necessary heavily soiled rugs may receive a second cleaning. Once they are cleaned to our high standards, a deodorizer/sanitiser and protector are applied. Next, the rugs are groomed to restore the pile and nap. The rugs are then hung for drying. This specially designed room allows even the most heavily soiled rugs to dry in just a few hours. Faster drying times, reduce the risk of colour bleeding, mould, and mildew. Once dried they will be re-vacuumed and returned to your home or place of business. As with all of our services, our work is guaranteed to meet your satisfaction.
