Most tufted rugs can be cleaned in the home and many machine woven area rugs can be cleaned in your home. Of course, they will be tested for stability prior to cleaning. Some rugs, particularly hand made, should not be cleaned on location due to inherent cleaning problems and certain soiling conditions. Uninformed carpet cleaners may needlessly ruin a rug while simply not knowing about these potential problems. Our company successfully cleans some of the finest rugs from around the world. Call our office at 478-405-9138 for help in determining which is best suited for your particular rug cleaning needs.

The Middle GA Rug Spa is a specialized department of our company that focuses on fine fabrics such as wool, cotton, silk, etc. This rug cleaning studio is capable of handling the most extensive cleaning processes needed. We have all the right tools for rug identity, problem solving, odor detection, neutralization and treatment. Your rug can be dry cleaned, wet cleaned, shampooed, or submerged in our wash pit. Whichever process is deemed most appropriate for your fabrics and rugs.
For a thorough cleaning of your fine rugs our company will pick your rugs up and clean them in a specially designed facility. In-plant cleaning offers many advantages: Having the rug in the plant allows us to give it several treatments for a more thorough cleaning, extensive dusting with our world class RugBadger, controlled drying, and the use of various tools that are not available on location.
Your rug will be cleaned according to the following important steps:
Step 1: Pre-Inspection and Pick Up – We will determine as much as we possibly can about the type of rug and inherent qualities that may affect cleaning.
Step 2: Dusting / Dry Soil Removal – Hand knotted rugs are designed to hide dry soil. Several years ago, the Eureka company did a study and found that a 9 x 12 could hide up to 85 pounds of dirt! WOW! We use a variety of techniques to “dust” the rugs from the front and back. Our Rugbadger uses thousands of harmonic pulsations to gently vibrate the soil loose from the rug. Dry soil removal is the most important step in cleaning any textile.
Step 3: Pre-Condition – Depending on fiber content and soiling type, the entire rug will be pre-treated accordingly to emulsify the soils.
Step 4: Pre-Spot and Fringe Preparation – Any potentially difficult spots will be carefully pre-treated with special solutions to increase chances of removal. The fringe is also appropriately pre-treated for maximum soil removal.
Step 5: Shampoo – Most rugs are cleaned with an Oriental Rug Shampoo that is especially designed to get maximum cleaning while protecting sensitive natural fibers.
Step 6: Rinse or Wash – Depending on the type of rug, it will be rinsed with extraction equipment on both sides or washed in a wash pit designed especially for Oriental Rugs. Rugs with pet odor problems must be submerged to ensure odor removal.
Step 7: Dry – Once the soil is rinsed away, the rug is dried flat or hung to dry in a controlled environment. Proper drying is essential to avoid unnatural shrinkage.
Step 8: Finishing – When the rug is dry, it is combed and finished with soft groomers made for specially rugs. Fringe is inspected and touched up if needed.
Step 9: Post Inspection and Delivery – Our cleaning specialist will give the rug a final inspection and release it for pick up or delivery. Your rug will be wrapped in brown craft paper to protect it from dust and environmental soils until it is delivered. Upon delivery, we will lay the rug for you.
We hope you will choose Carpet Cure for your Oriental & Area Rug cleaning needs.
