Dye Stability Testing

We test the rug for dye stability. This is a test that can take many hours and take many applications of dye stabilizers to slow the release of dyes. The cause of dye bleeding is a result of the dye process of the wool or the rug being cleaned with over the counter cleaning products not designed to be used on natural fibers.

Our Cleaning Process

In our process we do a thorough inspection to look for potential cleaning issues and areas where repairs are needed. Rugs left in disrepair can not only lose value, but also get worse during the cleaning process.

Our Cleaning Process Steps

When we bring your area rug to our wash plant after the inspection we do the following:

  • A full dusting to remove the dry soil that the vacuum cleaner leaves behind.
  • We have the only Tumble duster in the State on Nevada, plus two other methods to remove dry soil.
  • Clean the rug in the safest manner possible (every rug has its own tolerances.)
  • Dry thoroughly. Some cleaning methods may take two days to dry properly.
  • As a finishing touch fringes are groomed and fabric protection is applied.
  • Any repairs are done prior to cleaning.

When we get the area rug from you we will discuss the various options to cleaning and repairing your rug, because we recognize that all rugs are not the same and have to be cleaned differently.

At Reno Oriental Rug Wash our primary concern is not to clean as many rugs as possible, but to clean your rugs right. So we limit the amount of Area Rugs we will take in each week.

Pre-inspection

This is where we look for issues in the rug to ID potential problems that can arise in the cleaning process, from damaged ends, sides and other structural deficiencies. Here we also set cleaning expectations.

Dusting (Dry Soil Removal)

Most companies locally use a form of strap dusting for area rugs, we use the same principles, but we take it leaps and bounds ahead with our tumble duster( the only one in the region), our air dusting, and vibrating dusting devices. These tools get more dry soil out than regular vacuuming.

Dusting / Dry Soil Removal

Rumble Dusting

We utilize a state-of-the-art self-contained, self-cleaning, Rumble Air Duster to safely and effectively remove dust and dirt from your rugs.

Air Dusting

When needed, we use multiple methods to ‘dust’ your rugs to ensure that we remove as much soil as possible from the rug prior to any wet cleaning. Soil is very abrasive and can wear and damage the rugs. We work to not only improve the appearance of your rugs with a thorough cleaning, but to help extend the life of your rugs as well.
