When we say Rug Cleaning we mean rug washing. Cleaning is what we do to wall-to-wall carpeting or synthetic area rugs. It is often the mistake a regular carpet cleaner makes.

They usually pick up the rug and just steam clean it like a synthetic rug and return it to charge more money. Rug Cleaning Great Falls VA NOVA Rugs doesn’t do business that way.
Washing is the professional term to wash a natural or wool area rug. Most oriental and Middle Eastern rugs are made of wool face fibers and need to be washed in a rug washing pit which is a lot like a rug bath. It is cleaned all the way through. Most rug washers refer to this kid of cleaning as fully immersed rug washing. However the first step in washing is getting the dry dust out before the rug hits the water. Otherwise, it is utterly impossible to get that dust which turns to mud when wet out! We use the Rug Badger which is a machine that beats the dust out of your rug. See the process here.
