What is HH Floor Care
Professional Rug Cleaning Process ?
Know the 11 steps to the cleanest, healthiest professional rug cleaning service in Cheshire and surrounding areas you have ever seen!
We offer free collection of your valued rug at your home or business premises in Cheshire or surrounding areas. Collection and delivery is fully insured up to the value of your rug.
Each rug we collect here in Cheshire is inspected for any pre-existing conditions. In most cases soil covers up fibre staining, variations in dye (abrash), worn areas or white knots that become “uncovered” after the wash, prior dye bleeding. Some of these are weaving characteristics (abrash and white knots), and others are damage that can possibly be repaired or reversed. Also we will inspect for moth damage. Then 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 pre-wash inspection allows us to choose the correct method of cleaning and care for your precious rug.
Dye testing is done to determinate the stability of the dyes used in your rug. Most fibres are dyed using a mordant process, which is a chemical reaction that binds the dye to the fibres.
If the dyes are not stable, they will bleed as soon as they get wet – one unstable colour can ruin an entire rug!
Some rugs can hold up to 0.5 kg of dirt per square foot or 5kg per square meter before it will “look” dirty. Cleaning a rug with many kilograms of fine grit and dirt in the foundation will turn this dry soil into mud…so dusting is a very important step in the washing process, if not the most important.
We will vacuum the rug first to remove any large contaminants.
Then we will place your rug face-down on specialist raised grid and use our professional vibrating machine which acts like an army of mini rug beaters carefully loosening the deep down dirt out of both the front and backing of your valued rug, which then falls out through the raised grid under the rug. That allows us to sweep up all the dirt safely.
This machine will gently remove the dirt from your rug with 40 000 gentle vibrations per minute. That means your rug will receive over 1 million gentle dirt-loosening vibrations during its thorough beating.
Then we will use our Air Dusting System that is extremely powerful remaining dry soil removal system, but gentle to the fibres of the rug. This system removes all the finest particles that were left behind after initial vacuuming and thorough beating systems. That brings out further clouds of dust out of the rug.
Try doing all the above steps in your lounge!
By removing the dry soil, chances of the rug wearing out prematurely would be greatly reduced. Your rug can also lose up to half its weight! This is the process we provide for our discerning clients in Cheshire that only a very few companies in the UK provide.
All rugs with odour sources such as urine, mould, mildew, or insect infestations require decontamination. The decontamination bath is the only way to reduce or remove the above odour. Please note that not all odours can be successfully removed. (Some rugs with a latex backing can prove very difficult.)
Removal of all cleaning and soil residues by clear water rinse is absolutely vital of achieving a thoroughly clean rug. The rinse process utilises water to ensure the rug is left without any residue after the cleaning process prolonging the clean look and feel of the rug significantly. Residue left in the rug, would quickly act like a magnet, attracting soils and wearing the rug prematurely.
This ensures that the drying of your rug is sped up 10 times compared to any other method used by other cleaning companies. This completely eliminates the chance of colour run, mould growth, browning and any other issue associated with rug taking days or weeks to fully dry.
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 fibre absorbing spills.
We will also groom the face fibres to leave it in its best possible condition. This usually means we run a grooming rake over the rug to ensure the fibres are tangle-free and as ‘fluffy’ as possible.
Air movers and dehumidifiers are used to help drying process, 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 in a cold water hand wash. And as with throwing wool or cotton in a high heat tumble dryer – this shrinks natural fibres. This is why we dry all the rugs without the high heat.
Fringes are inspected and if required washed an additional time. They are then dried. Then rug is given a final grooming with a brush.
Each rug is then carefully wrapped to ensure its cleanliness during the fully insured transit in Cheshire and surrounding areas. We will then deliver the rug directly to your home, unwrap and unroll it for you in the desired place.
