Oriental and area rug cleaning isn’t like carpet cleaning. In-Plant Rug Cleaning is recommended for Oriental & Area Rugs. They should not be cleaned on location like installed carpeting. In our Rug Cleaning Plant your rugs will receive the most thorough cleaning process to receive maximum soil and spot removal. Having your area rug cleaning done “in-plant” allows you to have several treatments done for a much more thorough cleaning.
Our NEW In-Plant Oriental & Area Rug Cleaning facility offers the latest technology to clean and restore your rugs and protect your investment.

“I had my rug cleaned previously… it looked like all the soil had run down into the fringe of the rug. Larry made my rug look new again, especially the fringe. They also picked the rug up and delivered it back to me at no additional charge.”
“You really brought the life back to my area rug. I was nervous about having it cleaned but your knowledge on how it should be treated really put me at ease. Thanks!”
More About Our In-Plant Rug Cleaning Processes
We will determine as much as we possibly can about the type of rug and inherent qualities that may affect cleaning. We will outline the expected results and cleaning “prescription”.
Woven rugs, especially hand knotted rugs are designed to hide dry soil. We use a technique to “dust” the rugs from the front and back. We use a machine called a Rug Badger to remove the dry soil. This is the most important (and often missed) step in the cleaning process.
Pre-treatment of obvious spots and stains will increase chances of removal. During this step, the fringe is also pre-treated for maximum soil removal.
Depending on fiber content and soiling type, the rug will be pre-treated to emulsify the soils. Most rugs are cleaned with an Oriental Rug Shampoo that is especially designed to get maximum cleaning while protecting sensitive natural fibers.
Depending on the type of rug it will be rinsed with extraction equipment on both sides or washed in our Wash Pit, specially designed for Oriental Rugs..
Rug Finishing & Grooming:
Once the soil is rinsed away, the rug is dried flat or hung to dry in a controlled drying environment. Proper drying is essential to avoid unnatural shrinkage. When the rug is dry, it is combed and finished with soft groomers designed specifically for specialty rugs.
