Rug Cleaning

We specialize in cleaning handmade area rugs. Our methods are simple and effective.

Every rug is individually examined for stains, damage, or other issues that may require special treatment. Fragile areas are sewn to protect them during cleaning. Stains are often pre-treated. Rugs are ‘dusted’ to remove as much dry soil as possible before cleaning begins.

Rugs are washed in water with mild cleaning agents and carefully rinsed to carry away all traces of soil. Excess water is removed and rugs are dried in a controlled temperature room in a matter of hours. Clean dry rugs are examined, brushed, vacuumed, and groomed to look and feel their best.

Rejuvenated, your rug is soft, fresh, and free of odors.

 

The Cleaning Process

We examine each rug, looking for damage, unstable dyes, stains or other problems that may require special treatment. Fragile areas are noted and 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.
