Heirloom® utilizes time-honored techniques and modern equipment for the most thorough cleaning possible.

Based in Calgary, they are a small family business – with a big reputation. They clean all types of loose area rugs and specialize in fine oriental rugs and collectible textiles.

Step 1 ~ Inspection

Your rug gets a thorough inspection with photo documentation and notes made on any possible repairs or areas of concern. Measurements are taken of the square footage, including the fringe as a large amount of time is often spent getting the fringes to look as good as they can.

Step 2 ~ Dusting

An automatic rug duster gently and thoroughly removes dust and dirt from rugs of all kinds and shapes and is a very important step. Even with regular vacuuming, handmade rugs have a unique ability to hold pounds of sand and dust which have a cutting effect on rug yarns.

Step 3 ~ Testing

Testing your rug for weak dyes is another step in the process and dictates how to proceed with the wash. Many times the dyes can be set to control bleeding. Some rugs will bleed no matter what steps are taken and in this case it will be explained to you before moving ahead with cleaning.

Step 4 ~ Washing

Washing is most often completed in a European designed machine that allows your rug to gently “swim” causing water to flow through the pile removing soluble soil and any sedimentary soils that remain after dusting. This gets your rug cleaner than any other method used. Special bath water leaves your rug softer, smelling clean and fresh without any perfumes and works remarkably well with pet odour issues.

Step 5 ~ Wringing

After washing, your rug is rolled up, placed into a custom made centrifugal rug wringer and spun at 900 rpm. While spinning, water is injected to flush out any remaining cleaning agents and suspended soils. This works the same as your front load washer and when spinning is complete the rugs are just slightly damp.

Step 6 ~ Drying

Now ready for the drying phase, your rug is either hung or laid flat in a climate controlled room. Fans, de-humidifiers and air exchangers remove the final percentage of moisture and the rug is allowed to dry as long as necessary. When your rug is returned to you it will need to acclimatize to the humidity level in your home which should only take a day or two.

Step 7 ~ Final Inspection

After all the other spa activities are complete and your rug is dry, fringe cleaning is completed. Our detailed process and special fringe tool can help brighten the fringe and often times return the fibres to like new again without the use of harmful bleaches. Your rug then gets a final vacuuming and inspection and is then rolled up ready for delivery.
