Rug Cleaning Process
journey starts with…
1. Pre-Wash Inspection
Each rug is inspected for any pre-existing conditions. Many times, soil covers up dye lot variations (abrash), fibre staining, prior dye bleeding, worn areas or white knots that become “uncovered” after the wash.
Some of these are weaving characteristics (abrash and white knots), and others are damage that can possibly be repaired or reversed
2. Dust extraction
Once the pre-wash inspection is complete and before the wash proceeds, the first step is dusting. Some rugs can hold up to one pound of dirt per square foot before they will “look” dirty. Cleaning a rug with pounds of fine grit & dirt in the foundation creates mud…so dusting is an important first step to the wash process.
We will remove the damaging soil! Harnessing over 40,000 harmonic vibrations a minute, the RugBadger (shown above) will vibrate out even the most stubborn soil and sediments caught deep in the fibres of your precious rug!!!
3. Dye Test
Here we test every rug which we receive to make sure that all colours are stable. If colours are not stable we can usually stabelise “them.Once colours are colourfast we can now start our cleaning procedure but if we can not stabelise the colours we will carry out a low moisture clean which will be more safer for your rugs.
The dyes of your rug are tested for colourfastness. If the dyes are not colourfast, then the rug is prepared by setting the dyes. The rug is given a cold-water, mild shampoo bath, using soft brushes for mild agitation.
The rug is soaked for a certain length of time, depending on how much surface soil needs to be brushed out and rinsed from the rug’s fibres. The rug is then thoroughly rinsed with water.
Removal off all cleaning and soil residue by means of clear water rinse is vital of achieving a thoroughly clean rug. The rinse process utilise clear water at a gentle flow rate to ensure the rug is left without any residue after the cleaning process.
Rugs are thoroughly rinsed to remove soils, contaminants and any cleaning product residue. The knap is brushed to ensure softness as it dries. Any fringe on the rug is also brushed out during rinsing.
After the rug has been cleaned we can move on to applying the protector. This barrier coats each fibre to protect against re-soiling and staining. This allows you to simply mop up spillages as it prevents the fibres from absorbing spills.
7. Controlled Drying
Air movers are used to help facilitate drying, without the use of high heat (so there is no worry of shrinkage).
Upon a first wash, it is typical for a rug to shrink slightly (less than an inch) – just as cotton and wool clothing does even in a cold water hand wash. And as with throwing wool or cotton in a high heat dryer, you know this shrinks natural fibres, that’s why we dry our rugs the way we do.
8. Fringe Work and Finishing
Fringes are then washed an additional time after the bath & then dried. The rug’s given a final grooming with a horsehair brush, & then carefully wrapped to ensure its cleanliness during transit.
We will then deliver the rug directly to you home and unwrap it for you.

Pet urine removal
We’ve a wide range of specialist Wool Safe treatments designed to tackle odours left by damp, smoke damage, pet urine and other day-to-day odours that simply won’t shift with ordinary cleaning methods. (links required). Speak to our specialists today about the benefits of these products.
We will treat the area rug by storing it in a specialist-freezing chamber for a sufficient period of time required to destroy both active pests as well as their eggs. The rug is returned to air temperature gradually, and once our technicians are satisfied the problem has been resolved, the rug is cleaned as per normal, and the remaining waste extracted.
Traditional pest control:
Alternatively, if you require a speedier clean and treatment; once your rug has been thoroughly beaten, cleaned and dried, we can apply a colourfast chemical that lasts for up to three months, and kills pests on contact. Each method has its Pro’s and Cons and we would suggest you contact us prior to ordering this service such that we help discover the best option for you.
In nearly all cases, your rug will have undergone some form of prior cleaning regime. Unfortunately, many high street spot cleaning products, urine contamination products, and even professional carpet cleaners leave their cleaning chemicals in the pile as they are not extracted thoroughly.
Our process involves thoroughly rinsing these agents out in order to ensure our own chemicals not only perform as expected, but that any new or unseen issues not detected at the initial inspection are immediately relayed to you.
Red dye removal.
Whether its water damage, urine or other means that’s caused your rugs colour to bleed, Mist A Rug has an arsenal of tried and trusted products to restore your rug. Again, there are pro’s and cons to this service, therefore, our specialist technicians will first asses the extent of the bleed, prepare a report highlighting the issues as well as the expected outcome prior to proceeding with the removal.
Typically brown stains that fall in to this category can be removed during the traditional rug cleaning process. However, where stains are permanent, specialist-cleaning chemicals are needed. Mist A Rug has a broad range of professional browning removal products designed to tackle browning for both natural and man made fibers.
