How rugs are cleaned?

How rugs are cleaned?

From time to time your rugs may need a freshen up, the colours often appear a bit dull or should the unfortunate occur that you have an accident on the rug, whether it be animal urine, red wine or coffee spill or your rug becomes flooded, our Adelaide Rug Cleaners division can clean your rug in traditional methods, combined with modern technology and modern cleaning methods to provide your rug with the lift in appearance and cleanliness that it needs.

Your rugs will not just be treated like carpets and given a surface clean only like many other companies offer. At Swift Rug Cleaners your rug will be put through a detailed process that concentrates on cleaning and removing as much of the embedded sand, dirt, dust mites, allergen and other particles that get trapped beneath the fibres of your rug as possible.

  • Each rug we receive is treated individually and according to its needs. Our rug cleaning specialist will:
  • Determine the fibre content of your rug
  • Identify the style/origins of your rug to determine any specialised cleaning considerations
  • Inspect your rug using UV lights and specialised eyewear to identify pet urine contamination
  • Test your rug for colourfastness to prevent colour run during the cleaning process
  • Apply any required pre treatments
  • Clean using the method determined to be the best suited to your rug which may include a traditional hand wash in our custom made wash pit or the use of Adelaide’s only rug centrifuge and rug spa
  • Employ high volume rinsing to ensure removal of product residues
  • Dry your rug flat in our custom built drying room which combines heating, air circulation, hydroxyl treatment and dehumidification
  • Groom your rug
  • Put your rug through a final quality control inspection before releasing it back to you
