Step One: Comprehensive Inspection

Every Oriental rug tells a story, woven with unique threads and colors. Before we start cleaning, we perform a 46-point inspection. This rigorous examination identifies any pre-existing conditions. We document every detail and photograph your rug for complete protection.

Step Two: Thorough Dusting

Surprisingly, Oriental and wool rugs can harbor pounds of dirt and dust, invisible to the naked eye but harmful to the rug’s fibers. Our innovative cleaning begins with a dual-step dusting process. Initially, rugs undergo a vigorous yet gentle tumble dusting, shaking free the stubborn soil hidden deep within. Following this, an advanced dusting deck and air wand work together to eradicate any remaining dry soil.

Step Three: Delicate Washing

At the heart of our cleaning process lies the Star Paddle Wheel Wash Tub. This state-of-the-art machine uses a paddle wheel, botanical detergents, and color-stabilizing agents to wash away soluble soils without harming the fabric. This process reveres the rug’s integrity, so it emerges from the wash soft, fresh, and renewed. 

Step Four: Spin Cycle Rinsing

Our custom centrifuge rinses your rug with efficiency and precision, mimicking the efficiency of a household spin cycle. It expels water, remaining cleaning agents, and the last bits of soil at an astonishing speed, giving your rug a thorough cleanse without damaging its delicate fibers.

Step Five: Controlled Drying

Post-wash, we transition your rugs to a controlled drying environment. Here, rugs are air-dried under optimal conditions, balancing airflow, heat, and humidity to safeguard their texture and color. This careful drying process is essential for maintaining the rug’s integrity and life span.

Step Six: Final Touches

After the drying phase, we give your rug the final touches. Fringes are meticulously combed, touch-ups are performed with precision, and any requested treatments, like stain protector, are applied. Only then is it rolled, stored, and prepared for its journey back to your home.
