Step 1: Initial Inspection and Rug Pick Up

We will dispatch a Dalworth Rug Cleaning technician to your home or office to measure as well as pre-inspect your rug. Our technician will give you a FREE rug quote and estimate. Once you review and approve the quote, the rug cleaning technician will pick up your rug and take it to our state-of-the art rug cleaning facility conveniently located in the Dallas-Fort Worth Mid-Cities in Euless, TX. If necessary, our technician will move most any of your furniture in order to pick up your rug for cleaning at our Oriental rug cleaning facility.

Step 2: Follow Up Detailed Rug Inspection

Once the rug is in our area rug cleaning facility, a certified rug specialist re-measures it and thoroughly inspects your rug a second time to determine its fiber construction, special needs and the best cleaning method, cleaning products and drying time needed. During this step the technician also determines crucial information about the rug’s pre-existing condition and investigates and documents any rug damage, such as:

  • Dry and wet rot
  • Mold and mildew
  • Dye stains, color bleeding, discoloration, and browning
  • Rug Stains
  • Fading
  • Worn and rotten fringes
  • Pet Odors and waste, such as pet urine, feces, and vomit

If our inspection reveals that repair is needed in order to prevent further damage prior to cleaning, we will contact you with the repair report information and a recommended course of action to repair and restore your rug. After you speak with the rug cleaning technician and approve the determined plan for repair and cleaning, the rug cleaning technicians begin the actual area rug cleaning process.

Step 3: Compressed Air Dusting

Before washing your area rug, we use compressed air – extremely large volumes of cool, dry air- to dust the rug on both sides. Compressed air is an amazingly gentle, yet highly effective way to remove literally pounds of dust, dirt and small particles from the rug, which is impossible to remove with a standard vacuum cleaner.

Step 4: Clear Water Rug Cleaning, Immersion Wash and Rinse

We determine the amount of moisture the rug can tolerate to achieve the best rug cleaning results while maintaining the color vibrancy of the rug without dye bleeds. We select gentle cleaning agents based on your rug's condition, and we use a clear-water rinse to wash out all removable stains, dirt, and odors. Our rug technicians do this rug cleaning process by hand, and we repeat it until the rug water washes clear and we are satisfied with the results.

Step 5: Fresh Air Rug Drying

Once clean, we air dry each rug for natural and gentle rug care. Some rugs are hung to dry, using gravity to pull water out, while other rugs are dried flat. We determine the best drying method for your rug based on your rug type.

Step 6: Rug Combing, Brushing, and Fluffing

As the rug dries, we use combing and brushing or pile-fluffing techniques for the best results to deliver a luxuriously soft rug to you. Your feet will thank us!

Step 7: Rug Fringe Cleaning and Grooming

Step 8: Post Cleaning Vacuuming and Inspection

When rug cleaning, repair and restoration process is complete, we vacuum the rug again, trim any loose fibers, and do one final inspection to make sure the rug cleaning results satisfy our high standards.

Step 9: Optional Rug Fiber Protector, Insect Repellent & Rug Pad Services

We also offer and can deliver and install a custom-sized, non-skid rug pad to prolong the life and beauty of your fine area rug.

A quality rug pad custom-sized and selected especially for your rug for hard flooring surfaces or carpeted areas is a sound investment that will protect and extend the life of your rug. We customize the size and thickness of the pad to reduce friction between the floor surface and the rug. The rug pad will keep the rug in place, provide safety by reducing slipping, and provide an added layer of sound absorption.

Step 10: Rug Delivery

We deliver your fresh, clean rug to you and bring it into your home and place it in the desired room. In addition, we will move any furniture as needed and install the rug with the rug pad properly.All of Dalworth Rug Cleaning's work is guaranteed.
