Sometimes, cleaning your area rug at your facility isn’t an option. When that happens, we’ve go you covered.
Modernistic’s 7 Step Area Rug Washing Process:
Our seven step, boutique style, full immersion area rug washing system, ensures each rug is hand washed and separately treated on an individual basis.
The first thing we do is thoroughly inspect your rug. We examine the precise weave and fiber composition, check for dye strength, and look for at least 30 different conditions common to area rugs. Once your rug has been properly inspected and thoroughly examined by our team of certified technicians, then starts the most important step of the process, dusting.
A powerful soil separator is used to dislodge the dirt and dust that is deeply embedded in the foundation of the rug before it is washed. A regular vacuum is not powerful enough to remove this deeply embedded dirt which can dull and scratch fibers, leaving wear patterns.
3.) Boutique Wash
Our modernized wash process continues with your rug swimming in a bath of clean water boosted with mild fiber specific, color safe cleaning products. Soil is removed by the easy shake up of the wash water without the harsh use of brushes that can damage rug fibers. This light agitation relaxes the rug and allows the soil and grime to literally be massaged out of the fiber. Our hand wash process preserves the rug yarn and pile appearance better than the typical cleaning methods. Our rug care specialists pay careful attention to detail and subject your rug to multiple stages of inspection, as it is cleaned, to guarantee a difference you can see, feel and smell.
Once your rug has been washed, it is removed, visually inspected and rinsed off. It is then prepared for drying.
5.) Spin Dry
Our drying process involves the use of a revolutionary Centri-Maxx Horizontal Rug Wringing Centrifuge to produce damp dry results in just minutes. Contrary to the traditional process, which leaves the rug stiff and may distort pile, this method results in the rug feeling and looking new again. The wet rug is rolled into the cylinder of the wringer and is spun at an incredible 900 revolutions per minute, evacuating the water in less than three minutes. We do NOT use heat in the rug drying process.
6.) Hang Dry
From there your rug is hung on specialty designed racks in our controlled drying facility to ultimately bring you a remarkably cleaner, brighter, softer and fresher smelling rug than you ever imagined possible!
7.) Groom & Deliver
Once the rug is completely dry, it is inspected again to ensure quality results. After the final inspection, the rug is scheduled for pickup or delivery.
