Our Proven 8-Step Purified Water Rug Washing Process
Premium Eco-Friendly Rug Cleaning Process
Our 8-step rug cleaning process employs the simple element of purified water to deliver an extremely thorough, yet gentle rug cleaning. Though it’s more time consuming, cleaning area rugs by hand ensures that no stain or odor is overlooked and a rug’s delicate construction is not placed under undue stress. This approach produces the most thorough cleaning for your treasured investment.
Step 1: Free Rug Pickup and Pre-Inspection
We will come to your home or business to inspect and pick up your Oriental area rug, or you may drop it by our rug cleaning plant. Our Master rug cleaner will thoroughly inspect and determine as much as possible about the type of rug and inherent qualities that may affect rug cleaning. He will outline in writing the rug cleaning “prescription”, any recommended repairs, and expected results.
Step 2: Dry Soil Removal
We use a variety of dry soil removal techniques, including compressed air, special vacuum attachments, a pile lifter, and our new, state-of-the-art RugBadger.
Step 3: Pre-Condition Fringe Preparation, Pre-Spotting & Odor Removal
Depending on the area rug’s fiber content and the type and level of soil, the fine rug will be pre-treated to loosen the dry soils. Any potentially difficult spots, stains, or pet urine sites will be pre-treated with eco-friendly solutions to ensure complete removal (including the fringe).
Step 4: Immersion Hand-Washing using Purified Water
In the weaving capitals of the world, handmade rugs are immersion hand-washed for several hours in flowing river water. Our immersion handwashing simulates this age-old cleaning process, enabling all foreign matter to be purged from an area rug. Using a continuous flow of purified water, combined with a mild, WoolSafe pH-neutral cleansing agent massaged deep into the rug fiber, further removing the rug’s contaminants and keeps them from settling back into the rug again. While the area rugs are submerged, compression rollers purge or “squeeze” all remaining soil and contaminants. Rugs with particularly stubborn contaminants, such as pet urine odor or smoke odor, are submerged for an extended period of time to guarantee their complete removal.
Step 5: Centrifuge Rug-Wringer
Our plant utilizes a cutting-edge centrifuge rug-wringer. With a combination of centrifugal force, effective chemistry, and purified water irrigation, contaminants are thoroughly flushed out! It removes over 95% of moisture from rugs in less than 3 minutes.
Step 6: Controlled Heat Drying and Post Detailing
Once the rug is removed from the centrifuge, it heads to our heated rug dry rack. Here, the rugs dry for 24 to 48 hours. When the rug is completely dry, it’s combed with soft groomers made for specialty fine rugs. In post-detail, we restore all fringes using a professional-grade tool.
Step 7: Post Cleaning Inspection
Our certified Master rug cleaner will perform a meticulous, inch-by-inch, post rug cleaning inspection. If the Master cleaner feels that the area rug can be cleaned further, your rug will be sent back through the full rug cleaning process once more. Our master rug cleaning manager will give the rug a final inspection and then release it for either pickup or free delivery.
Step 8: Final Touch and Delivery
After the rug facility manager has approved your rug for delivery or pickup, a product called Triple-Plus+ encapsulation sanitizer, deodorizer, and stain protector is then applied at no additional cost. Triple-Plus+ is plant-based and forms a microscopic barrier around each fiber to enhance vacuuming and add extended soil repellency and stain protection.

“Clean Choice is the only way to go. I went through several companies before I found them. They do a fantastic job every time.”Tim Savalina in Pasadena, MD
“Clean Choice has cleaned the carpets in two of my houses and I have been amazed at how great they look. The carpets, both over 10 years old, look brand new. I was sure I was going to have to replace them but decided to try and have them cleaned first and I am so glad I did. Keith is extremely passionate about his job and very dedicated to providing the best service possible. I have already referred them to several of my friends and will continue to do so in the future.”Elizabeth Bare in Columbia, MD
