Professional Rug Dusting in Bellingham & Mount Vernon, WA

rug dusting professionally

Area rugs are investments that add warmth, style, and comfort to our homes. With regular use, rugs accumulate dust, dirt, and debris that compromises beauty, longevity, and value. While regular vacuuming removes light surface accumulations of lint and hair, it cannot remove the damaging effects of deeply imbedded particulate matter assisted by gravity and foot traffic. Professional rug dusting is the single most important step in preserving a rug’s longevity. A hand-knotted rug regularly dusted can last a century or more. Dirt and grime resting below the surface fibers and hidden within the cuticles of wool act as sandpaper with each step or pivot of foot traffic, thus reducing the life span of your rug.

We have invested in equipment designed specifically for area rugs that assists us in this critical step prior to immersion washing of fine rugs. Big Blue, our tumble duster is used on most rugs. Older more fragile rugs with foundation wear are dusted with a smaller piece of equipment that gently uses vibration to loosen soiling on the back of a rug’s foundation. Some flatweaves and Navajo rugs are hand dusted.

At Steam Sweepers Rug Cleaning, our rug ability to remove the damaging effects of dust, dirt and grime prior to immersion washing, assures results. We proudly guarantee results with our rug cleaning services for our customers in Anacortes, Mount Vernon, Burlington, Oak Harbor, Stanwood, and other cities throughout our service area in our corner of Northwest Washington.

Dusting: The rug is placed in our Big Blue tumble duster or manually dusted.

Wash/dry: Finally, the rug’s beauty and value is restored with immersion washing. We then hang the rug and use heat, air movement and dehumidification to dry the rug in 24 hours.
