FREE PICKUP AND DELIVERY FOR ALL RUGS

Since 1995 we have perfected our handwashing techniques which utilize traditional methods using organic shampoo rather than machines which typically use toxins and harsh chemicals that could be harmful to your rug and your own health. Without the use of any of these chemicals, we offer stain removal of all kinds: Beverages, Blood, Bodily Fluids (urine and feces), Brown/Yellow Discoloration, Butter, Candle Wax, Chocolate, Cosmetics, Crayon, Dairy Products, Deodorants, Dye Transfer, Egg, Fruit Juice, Grass, Gravy, Grease, Oil, Ice Cream, Ink, Lipstick, Maple Syrup, Mayonnaise, Mildew, Milk, Mud, Mustard, Nail Polish, Paint, Perfume, Perspiration, Pine, Resin, Scorch, Shoe Polish, Soft Drinks, Tar, Tobacco, Typewriter Correction Fluid, Tomato, Watermelon, Wine, and much more. Contact us for free consultation about your stain.

Backed by over 40 years of experience, we offer expert repair services for any type of Persian, Oriental, European, Chinese rugs, including all types of flat weave, kilim, American-Indian, Bessarabian, and needlepoint rugs. We have a huge yarn inventory that assures proper wool and color matching. Turnaround time depends on many factors, with easier repairs typically accommodated within two weeks, while more complex repairs may take much longer.

 

We also cut rug pads to any size and lay them along with completed restoration work.  No project is too large, either in number of items or in individual sizes, and none is too difficult. Problem pieces are welcomed and no challenge is rejected.

 

Rates are competitive and all work is guaranteed, with client satisfaction being our first priority.

 

Free pick-up and delivery is available within the Washington Metropolitan Area. If you are farther away, we can arrange economical shipping using FedEx or UPS, which will deliver your rugs to us for cleaning and repair. Once they are completed and pass through our exhaustive inspection, they are packaged and shipped back to you. Upon request, rugs can be insured with FedEx or UPS during the round trip transportation.

STEP 1: RUG BEATING

 

We shake the rug vigorously by using a rug beater to remove loose dirt and debris. We then use a vacuum cleaner with a gentle attachment to remove the remaining dirt.

STEP 2: SPOT CLEANING

 

After carefully inspecting the rug for stains and soiled areas, we prepare a solution of mild shampoo and water to then use a brush and/or a sponge depending on the nature of the stain to gently spot clean those areas.

STEP 3: HAND WASHING

 

We gently scrub the rug with a soft brush in the direction of the pile, to maintain its natural flow. We do this very carefully as not to damage rugs with loose weaves to prevent any fiber damage, scrubbing until all dirt is lifted

STEP 4: RINSING

Once the rug has been thoroughly washed, we drain the soapy water. We repeat the process to ensure that we have removed all remaining shampoo.

STEP 5: DRYING

Without wringing, twisting, or otherwise distorting the shape of the rug, we gently remove excess water and lay it on a dry, flat surface where we flip it over occasionally to ensure that both sides air dry evenly.

STEP 6: FINAL TOUCHES

Once the rug is completely dry, we shake it to fluff up the fibers, as well as shear any excess threads.

It is through these steps that we expertly clean your rugs, restoring them to their original beauty.
