Oriental Rug Cleaning

As the value of Oriental rugs continues to increase, it pays to protect your heirloom, Chinese, Persian, Indian, and splendid contemporary classics with professional care. We bring your rug to its original quality and condition with decades of expertise and experience. Every wash is catered specifically to the materials, make, and age of your rug. Our cleaning process is customized to your individual rugs’ needs. The great diversity of weaves, condition, age and types of soil found in rugs must be treated differently in order to safely and thoroughly remove both the abrasive grit and the atmospheric soils that dull their colors and cause accelerated wear. We utilize the steps below to best clean and protect your rug(s).


First we pick up your rug from your home and bring it back to our facility. An experienced staff member will examine and document the condition of your rug, to ensure accurate and thorough cleaning techniques.

Dry Soil Removal:

Over 70% of the soil in your rug(s) is dry, particulate soil that your vacuum can’t get to. Over time, this soil and grit builds up and damages rug fibers, causing accelerated wear to your rug. A very important step we perform is dry soil removal. Through the use of mechanical action we are able to remove literally pounds of dry soil, restoring your rugs’ fibers to a soil and grit free state.


We only use solutions that are biodegradable and environmentally friendly. The solutions we are using in our cleaning process are guaranteed to not harm or degrade wool fibers or leave unnecessary residues behind after the cleaning.

Our cleaning is truly a hand washing, we are able to give individual care and attention to the specific needs of your rug. How we perform the wash is determined by the condition and soil found in your rug. The fringes are given careful attention and thoroughly detailed. During the washing we address any spots, specific stains or odors.

Following the wash, a thorough rinse is given. After the final rinse we utilize a machine that acts similar to the spin cycle on your washing machine and gently wrings the excess water off of your rug, up to 95% of the moisture is removed.


We are able to remove up to 95% of the water on the rug during the cleaning process which shortens our dry times significantly, allowing us to return your rug(s) in less time than our competitors. Before your rug enters our dry room, the pile and fringes are groomed for a uniform look once dry.

Our process utilizes a temperature and humidity controlled drying environment. We are able to provide dry times as short as 3 to 4 hours after our cleaning process. Prolonged dry times are the major cause of many issues created by most rug or carpet cleaners. Rugs can dry stiff, colors can bleed or run, browning and yellowing of fringes can be a major problem, and mold and mildew can begin to grow on the rug in as little as 24 hours if not properly dried.

Final Inspection:

Once your rug is completely dry it is given a thorough final inspection. The rugs are then rolled and ready to be delivered at your desired date and time frame.

With proper care, an oriental rug should not only last a lifetime, but it should shine for a lifetime and generations beyond by becoming a family heirloom. Oriental rugs are extremely durable but they need regular care to ensure they remain in top condition.

From hand-made oriental rugs to machine-made rugs, we are the experts for your care and maintenance needs. Our gentle cleaning process is perfect for servicing your oriental rugs.
