1. Always inspect and pre-test. Document and photograph. Note all pre-existing damage.
2. Moroccan rugs are often chemically washed with strong, destructive chemicals, like
chlorine bleach, among other things. Test pH to see if damaged by sodium hydroxide
or other alkaline chemicals. Quote for pH balancing before washing. Test for redox
imbalance. Use an oxidation reduction potential (ORP) meter to determine if bleach
(oxidation) has been used and that residues remain in the fibers. These need to be
neutralized. Quote for redox balancing before washing.
3. Moroccan rugs often bleed dyes. Look for pre-existing color migration. Test all colors for
crocking and bleeding. Consider setting dyes. Charge accordingly.
4. Inspect for damage. Quote for repairs before washing.
5. Do Not set expectations to be 100% perfection, only an improvement.
6. Have a release of liability signed before washing.
7. Work quickly. Wash Moroccan rugs fast and efficiently.

Cleaning procedures:

1. Dust rug.
2. Treat entire rug, front and back with AntiDye solution. Apply heavily. Work in with hand
brush or other tool if the construction can take it.
3. Rinse to remove any loose dyes. Rinse lightly and quickly, unless color is migrating. Reapply
AntiDye solution if colors are moving, and continue to rinse.
4. Apply Navajo Rug Cleaner solution to entire rug, front and back. Work in with hand brush
or other tool.
5. Rinse both sides with cold, clear water until it runs clear. If color is still migrates, apply more
AntiDye solution and rinse again. Repeat if necessary.
6. Squeegee, roll, wring out extract or centrifuge to remove excess water. If using centrifuge,
make sure to completely cover with absorbent towels, or quilts to prevent dye transfer
(tattooing) onto rug, during spinning.
7. Speed dry. Because dyes can possibly migrate during drying, flat dry on cotton towels or
quilts. Place on top of two or more layers of cotton material, and add two more layers
of material on top of rug, with airflow (without blowing off the cotton material). Use
heat, dehumidification or other method to speed dry.
8. Repair wool fiber damage with Wool Rug Revitalize if customer is okay with the additional
cost. Balance the pH of the wool to as close to pH 5.5 as reasonable. Balance the
redox to as close to 500 millivolts as reasonable to repair the wool.
