Smith Brothers started cleaning rugs in plant in 2004. Started due to increased demand from our customers for a local cleaner to care for their delicate wool rugs, we are able to safely and effectively clean rugs made in Asia, the Middle East, as well as the United States. We offer pick up and delivery, but you can save up to 20% off our regular prices if you bring them by our shop in Marysville. We recommend in-plant cleaning for Oriental rugs to ensure they are cleaned properly, dried in a timely manner, and we have all the necessary tools and detergents available for best cleaning results.
Rug Cleaning Procedures
We thoroughly examine your rugs, noting condition, rug type, and any pre-existing damage. We can come to your home or you can bring it to our shop.
- Commercial Vacuum
An industrial vacuum with a metal "beater bar" is used to extract as much dry soil from the rug as possible. This process is repeated several times until the all that can be removed is gone.
- Pre Treatment
Next your rug will be treated with a fiber specific detergent designed to loosen the soils, paying special attention to trouble spots.
The rug is then shampooed with a detergent and an agitator brush to loosen the remaining soils.
- Extract & Rinse
The next step is to rinse your rug with our high powered extraction equipment, which removes the remaining detergents and soils.
The rug is then groomed with brushes and hung to dry in our shop, using carpet drying fans to ensure fast drying and prevent discoloration and shrinkage.
- Post Cleaning Inspection
Last step in the process, the rug is inspected by our staff to make sure it's as clean as possible. The rug is then wrapped in plastic and ready to go home!
