Oceanside Cleaners’ state-of-the-art rug cleaning facility is highly recommended for the cleaning of Oriental and loose-woven rugs. We care for the finest to the most basic rugs from around the world. We will pick up and bring your rugs to our special cleaning facility where they will go through our thorough cleaning process for maximum soil and spot removal.
Cleaning your rugs in our facility allows us to give the rugs several treatments if needed. We¹ll clean both sides in a controlled drying environment and use various specialty tools. Our five-step process includes:
Step #1: Initial Inspection & Check In
Your rug is carefully inspected for spots and stains, soiling conditions, wear patterns, repair needs, and other areas of concern such as pet odors, etc. Then your rug is measured to determine a cost for service
Step #2: Dry Soil Removal
Dry soil removal is critically important to restoring the appearance and maintaining the life of your rug because deeply embedded dry soils are abrasive and saw away at rug fibers like sandpaper every time you walk across your rug! At Oceanside Cleaners, we remove the dry soil from deep in the foundation of your rug with a proprietary Automatic Rug Duster that shakes loose all the dry particulate soil that has accumulated in the rug.
Step #3: Area Rug Washing
Your rug is placed into our unique wash tub, which uses a special, velocity-appropriate star paddle to provide gentle agitation that mimics age-old hand-washing techniques. Special cleaning agents are added to aid in the cleaning process and to ensure that colors are restored to their very best appearance and that dye stability or dye transfer is never a problem.
Step 4: Water Removal
Once your rug is clean, we utilize a rug wringing centrifuge that is designed to quickly remove water from your rug. Our special centrifuge allows us to dramatically accelerate the drying process.
Step 5: Final Drying & Inspection
When your rug comes out of the centrifuge, it’s hung on a special rack to complete the drying phase. Air is gently circulated to further speed the evaporation process. Once completely dry, your rug will undergo a final detailed inspection prior to being rolled and wrapped for final delivery.
