Every area rug we service is first marked with a security barcode tag and then is carefully inspected for size, type, condition and any special handling that may be required. Your rug is then beaten and brushed to remove any dust, sand or other material from within the rug’s pile. In the next step, the rug is hand spotted and pre-washed and special attention is focused on tough stains and soiled areas. The rug is then inserted into a flatbed washing machine that gently jet-washes it with just warm water and a specialized detergent. Immediately following this wash, the rug is thoroughly rinsed using cold water, and the majority of the water is wrung out.
The rug is allowed to dry overnight in a temperature & humidity-controlled dry room. The next morning, it is inspected. If the rug does not meet our quality standards, we will re-wash it again. When completed, Paramount Rug Company will hand clean the fringe, vacuum it and then wrap the rug in heavy paper. Silk rugs or those made of other natural fibers, will receive special handling and be cleaned using dry cleaning methods. We clean these rugs by hand using the Milliken system.
