We can clean any type of area rug and specialize in the cleaning of hand-made rugs. Our processes are simple and effective, even for rugs with unstable dyes or condition problems requiring special handling.
The Cleaning Process
Rugs are examined for damage, stains, unstable dyes, or other problems that may require special attention prior to cleaning. Fragile areas may be sewn to protect them during the wash process. Rugs are ‘dusted’ mechanically to remove as much dry soil as possible before cleaning begins. Stains and problem spots are pre-treated if necessary.
Rugs are washed in water using cleaning agents specific to each rug’s condition. Controlled washing practices remove soil, stains and odor causing residues. Migration of un-stable color is managed. Existing color run can be removed. Rugs are flushed with water and rinsed completely, removing all remaining traces of soil. Finally, all water is extracted and rugs are air-dried, usually in a matter of hours. Once fully dry each rug is examined, brushed, vacuumed, and groomed to look it’s best.

Stains and Spills
Some of the toughest stains, like pet stains and red wine, are simple for us to remove. Our cleaning removes odors leaving your rug smelling fresh. We can modify our use of cleaning solutions to accommodate individual needs and allergies.
We specialize in Navajo and Southwestern rugs and blankets, receiving work from clients throughout the United States. Often fragile and stained, these weavings can be challenging to clean. Our processes are safe and effective.
