This is the oldest rug cleaning method, but it’s not a very hygienic method. However, dry cleaning is suitable for all types of carpet and compulsory for some types of rug materials like viscose, plant-based, sisal, coir, some silk variant, pulp-based, and jute rugs.
Some of the rugs above only require dry cleaning because they absorb liquid, which causes permanent damage. This makes dry cleaning compounds and powders best for these types of rugs.
If your carpet is made from any of the materials above, our technician will inform you before using only the dry cleaning method. The technician will also try to remove stains on the rug as dry cleaning cannot remove all types of rug stains.
If your rug does not have stains and you want it clean regardless of potential damages, the technician will apply the cleaning powder to the rug to absorb dirt, bacteria and allergens.
Coldwater extraction cleaning for wool rug
Rugs made with mixed fibres, wool, and linen have been cleaned either dry cleaning or cold water extraction. However, cold water extraction cleaning is more effective in removing stubborn spots and stains.
Coldwater extraction rug cleaning involves using at most 30 degrees Celsius water with wool-safe approved chemicals for rug cleaning. The technician will inject the water and chemical into the rug and then vacuum out the solution to remove the rug’s allergen, bacteria, and dirt. Foam cleaning is suitable for removing bacteria and allergens from a rug.
Knowing the best way to take care of your wool rug lies in understanding that different problems can affect other types of rugs.

Physical damage on wool rugs caused by moth is one of the problems of a wool rug. You have to check for moth damages on your wool rug to determine if it requires repair or cleaning.
If you notice moth damages on your wool rug, you should have a technician repair it and guide you on preventing the damage from reoccurring.
If you home-dyed your rug, it may have some colours running through the rug’s fabric, so the technician may have to run a colour fastness test before the cleaning.
