Area Rug and Oriental Rug Cleaning & Repair

Your rug deserves the best care and cleaning available. We provide gentle, effective cleaning that will extend the life of your rug. Additional services are available that can help freshen, protect, and restore your rugs.

Our Cleaning Process

When we receive your rug or pick it up from your home, we start with a thorough inspection and document any areas of concern that you may have or we identify. This ensures we meet your expectations and your rug is cleaned effectively.

Removal Before washing, we thoroughly remove all dust and grit from the backing up. This critical step maximizes the effectiveness of the cleaning process and is essential to your family’s health.

We wash your rugs using surfactants that are biodegradable, environmentally friendly, and safe for wool, silk, and dye. We carefully clean your rug, giving special attention to spots, fringe, and heavily soiled areas. Your rug is hand washed and thoroughly rinsed.

Quick, careful drying is essential to ensuring that your rug looks its best. Our extractors remove more than 90% of the water. This speed up the drying time and prohibits bleeding and browning. Your rug is carefully manicured, brushed, and dried in our humidity-controlled dry room.

After drying is completed, each rug is vacuumed and then spot treated for any stains that may not have come out during the wash. Fringes are carefully inspected and may be redone in order to look their best. The team member who completes the final inspection signs off on that tag.

In many cases, restoration can make your rug look like new. Heirloom rugs can often be rejuvenated and returned to their classic appearance.

Pet Stains & Odors

Pet accidents can cause permanent damage to the wool fiber or dye, especially if left untreated. Special enzyme soaks and intense rinsing to remove the stains can prevent these contaminants from causing further damage. Stain removal and color restoration are possible.

Deodorizing

Using a special treatment, we can remove the smell of mildew, pets, smoke and soot. Our process removes the source of the odor and is not a fragrance to mask the odor. Your rug will be returned to you smelling fresh and clean.

Moth Protection

Our treatment is not a pesticide, and is safe for your family and pets. The larvae reject the taste of the wool when this treatment is applied. To monitor if you have any activity in your home call and ask us about Pheromone Traps.

Wool Protector

We have used Solar Seal Sunfade and Stain Protection for many years with excellent results. It is helpful in preventing permanent staining.

Blocking

Rugs such as classic Orientals, Aubussons and Needlepoints can stretch and lose their shape. Rugs can have a flaw in their weaving, and may not lie flat on the floor. Utilizing a specialized technique of carefully stretching the carpet we can rectify these types of problems.
