Our Unique Rug Cleaning Process

It is important to have the rugs in your home cleaned every 18-24 months. An area rug cleaning professional will remove dirt and dust, reinvigorate colors, and ultimately provide the rug with a deeper clean than once can achieve with a vacuum or at-home carpet cleaner. Heirloom Rug Cleaning’s Rug Care experts are all trained in an 11 step area rug cleaning process that focuses on customizing the cleaning process to the needs of the rug.

Our Unique Rug Cleaning Process
  • Area Rug Inspection – The rug professional will inspect both the front and back of your rug, take photos, and document any need for repair or special treatment. The inspection will include a conversation with you about your rug, where it came from, the amount of use it gets in your home, and any questions or concerns that you may have about the care of the rug.
  • Dry Soil Removal – We remove dust from the rug using a rug badger. This device allows all loose soil to be safely removed from the rug, before the bathing process.
  • Color Testing – Every rug is tested before bathing for potential color bleeding. If the rug is colored with vegetable or berry dyes, it may be more prone to bleeding and will need additional product applied before the washing process to ensure that colors stay put.
  • Rug Fringe Cleaning – When rugs are vacuumed at home, fringe is avoided to prevent damage to the rug and vacuum alike. The professionals meticulously inspect and hand wash the fringe on your rug, to ensure there is no damage to the fringe.
  • Shampooing – Many are rug cleaning companies use large, car wash-style machines to wash your rug. Alexander’s professionals use handheld cleaning devices to ensure optimum results. The Cimex Rotary shampoo machine is used to thoroughly agitate and emulsify the soil to the surface for extraction. This is done on the front and back of the rug.
  • Rinsing – After the rug is shampooed, it is rinsed thoroughly to remove all residual dirt, grime, and shampoo.
  • Rug Grooming – Once the rug is rinsed, it moves on to the hand grooming process. Alexander’s rug professionals set the nap and align the fringe by hand.
  • Drying – To ensure that the rug maintains its original shape and size, it is draped over specially designed drying poles. The fringe is realigned by hand during the drying process.
  • Post-inspection – After the rug is dry, it is inspected by two technicians to ensure there is no spotting or misaligned fringe.  
  • Vacuum Rug – The rug is then vacuumed to remove any dust that may have surfaced during the cleaning and any marks from the grooming process.
  • Roll or Fold – Once the cleaning process is complete the rug is either rolled or folded, wrapped and tied for delivery or pickup.

  • 5 Stars

Highly recommended! I had an oriental rug that had been used in a public setting for 25 years and had only ever been cleaned on-site. It wasn't needed any more so I decided to try to get it cleaned properly so I could take it home. They did a fabulous job of cleaning and repair (new fringe and binding), so worth the cost, it now looks new.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Value We had a very good experience with Greg at Heirloom Rug Cleaning. We mistakenly used an improper cleaning solution on our wool rug and he was willing to take on the job.

I absolutely loved how clean my rugs were after Heirloom Oriental Rug Cleaning had them. My two very expensive silk on silk carpets are so soft and the colours are so vibrant now!
