The RugBadger

Professional cleaning of Persian, Afghan, Chinese, Turkish, Navajo, Kilims, Silks, Dhurries, Tibet, Indian and all modern rugs.

The RugBadger harnesses over 40,000 harmonic vibrations per minute to push out the most stubborn soil and sediments trapped deep in the fibres of your rug.

In villages and tribal regions where rugs are made, the dirt and sediment is simply beaten out of the rug using a large stick and some elbow grease! This is a great way of extracting the grit out as it breaks the hard, encrusted layer of dirt found deep down in the backing of the rug.

You might have even seen your granny using this method when you were little, before she would quickly notice you were watching her, and you would be given the big stick and told: “don’t stop beating until there is no dust coming out”.

Well fortunately times have changed, and this machine is an amazing tool in extracting out the harmful dirt and sediment that your daily vacuuming just simply can’t do.

We simply lay a grid on the floor, placing the rug face down on top of it. We then run the RugBadger over the backing of the rug to loosen the soil. The soil falls from the backing of the rug through the pile, through the grid and is collected on the floor, ensuring that none of the dry soil particles are left on the face of the rug.
