Hand-Wash Rug Cleaning

At Granville Carpets we offer a wide range of rug washing and rug cleaning services. We specialize in traditional hand-washing methods and use our own special shampoo formulas which contain no harsh chemicals. We also have a full immersion system in our cleaning plant which is effective for advanced cleaning requirements.

Before we start cleaning we gently remove dust particles from the rug. We then soak the rug in clean water, which allows shampoo to penetrate deeply into the pile. After careful hand brushing, we rinse the rug thoroughly with more clean water to remove all shampoo. We then use vacuum extractors to remove most of the moisture from the rug. After the rug has been hung to dry, we re-wash the fringes and dry some more. If required, additional stain work is carried out at this point. The whole process typically takes between 10 to 15 days from pick-up to delivery.

While we try our best to remove stains and smells, this is something that cannot be guaranteed.

Carpet De-Dusting

Carpet de-dusting has two functions: On its own, it is a cleaning method to minimize and remove carpet allergens such as dust mites; and second, it is an essential step we use before carrying out more intensive wet washing techniques.

Note that de-dusting is a very different, yet complementary, process to vacuum cleaning. De-dusting requires specialized high power machinery that pushes carpet dust and rug dust down and out the opposite side of the carpet and onto the floor. This is the only truly effective way to dislodge deeply embedded dust and dirt. It is essential to remove particles embedded in the carpet because they will cause abrasion to the fibres whenever the carpet is walked on and used. This leads to accelerated wear, disintegration, and degradation of the carpets internal structure.

Furthermore, it is essential to thoroughly remove all dirt, dust, and grit before the carpet is washed. Otherwise, upon exposure to water, the particles turn to mud, wick deeply into the fibres, and stick there making the abrasive effects more damaging and difficult to remove even with repeated washing.

So, for carpets that are in dusty areas, high-traffic areas, and otherwise haven’t been well cleaned in a long time, we always recommend de-dusting first before any other cleaning is performed.
