Green Rug Cleaning –The Benefits of Using Softened and Purified Water for Organic Rug Cleaning

Green rug cleaning is more important than you may think. Area rugs act like an air filter, collecting dust and dirt particles in their fibers. Just like a dirty filter, they need to be properly cleaned or it will damage the rug and cause indoor health hazards. The best way to do this is to use eco-friendly, organic rug cleaning processes that will safely clean your rug without the use of harsh chemicals and with purified soft water.
Hard water has an appreciable quantity of dissolved minerals that are found in well water and in many municipalities tap water, particularly in the Tri-State New York/NYC area. As water makes its way through the ground and into our waterways, it picks up a considerable amount of minerals, like chalk, lime and mostly calcium and magnesium.

When you don’t use soft water or organic rug cleaning processes, the minerals listed above will affect wool, silk and cotton in a serious but gradual manner. They cause a fast fading of colors, yellowing of whites, and shortened fabric life, leaving fabrics looking dingy.  In addition, when you add soap to hard water it forms a crystalline salt often referred to as ‘soap scum.’  This happens due to a chemical reaction between soap and the minerals, making it very difficult to rinse and clean.

Soft water, on the other hand, actually performs much more effectively.  Soap lathers better and scum-free, fabrics are left soft and not damaged and most importantly, soft water will prolong the life of your rugs. A green rug cleaning increases the air quality of your home, leaving you and your family in a healthier environment.

How Organic Rug Cleaning Works

When you get a green rug cleaning proprietary air filtered dust removal begins to clean and remove loose dirt and debris.  The water used is micro filtered to be used with gentle organic soaps. This is thorough the washing process that applies gentle pressure using a computer controlled system which automatically adjusts for varied rug piles or thicknesses. Rinsing and cleaning take place at the same time to avoid oversaturation, and fringe should always be hand washed.

Before you take your rug in to professional cleaners, always ask what their drying process is like. At a rug cleaner that is truly expert at organic rug cleaning, such as RevitaRUGS in NYC, they will remove the majority of moisture content immediately in their proprietary pre-drying system. The last stage of drying takes place in their fully enclosed custom engineered temperature controlled drying rooms which produce ideal filtered air drying conditions, with no allowance for growth of mold or bacteria.

After drying, fringes are re-checked and the rug is inspected for any necessary repairs or request according to customer’s needs. If you are at a good rug cleaner, a final inspection takes place in which the rug is photographed and another round of automatic pressure controlled brushing gives it yet another grooming! It is packed with care and ready for the trip home.
