Every rug is hand-washed individually with attention to detail and care. This method is more time consuming but yields the very best results. Two rugs are never washed simultaneously, never share the same unclean water – eliminating cross contamination problems.
We do not recommend machine cleaning.
Capital Rug Cleaning does not use commercial carpet cleaning machinary, rotary scrubbing machines, automated wash systems, or washing tubs.
Rotary machines may cause damage to your rug by distorting the rug pile.
Wash tubs may cause color bleeding, dye transfer or cross-contamination. Why? Using about a thousand gallons of treated water, it's used to tumble up to fifteen rugs per cycle.
We do not recommend in-home rug cleaning.
Carpet cleaners offer in-home rug cleaning services, or rug steam-cleaning. Steam cleaning a rug only cleans the surface, leaving fine dirt and micro particles at the foundation. Also, if the rug does not dry fast enough, after it’s been steam cleaned, the opportunity for mold growth and odor arises.
