Rug cleaning trip… From Leicester to Athens, Greece… Cont 3

Once a rug has been ‘dusted’ it’s then onto the washing. Now this is a serious piece of rug washing equipment that I’d love to get back to Leicester and install it in our rug cleaning plant. We’d be the only professional rug washing company¬†in Leicester, Derby, Nottingham, Coventry & Even Northampton to have one of these bad boys!

rug cleaning trip to athensAt over ¬£30,000 it’s a serious investment that will increase productivity and reduce our turn-around time of getting rugs back to our clients. This machine, once you’ve put the rug in place, is fully automated. The first process is to spray the rug with the cleaning solution before agitating the pile with two rows of rotary brushes followed by a combination of two fresh water rinses to rinse the rug and two cylindrical brushes to groom the pile before rolling the rug back up before spinning it in our centrifuge and hanging it to dry.

So that’s a new dusting machine (to replace our rug badger) and a rug washing machine on the Christmas present list for this year… Let’s see what Santa brings.
