CLEANING & CARING FOR YOUR RUGS

We use a wet immersion process to clean area rugs and oriental rugs. This is the oldest and in our opinion the best method for thoroughly cleaning a wool rug. Of course we would think this, as we have been cleaning rugs since the the 1930s. The cleaning plant is in our store. If you would like a tour, please ask!

Here is a summary of the steps we follow:

1. Inspect rug for damage and stains.

2. Beat back of rug to remove some of the embedded dirt.




3. Inspect rug for unstable dyes and set dyes if necessary.

4. Wash rug in a wet submersion process with oriental carpet shampoo.




5. Place rug in a specially designed ringer for a final rinse and to remove water.




6. Hang rug in a climate controlled drying room.




7. Clean fringe.




8. Inspect rug and detail fringe. (it will take close to 10 days to clean a rug)

Call us at 814-238-2732 with any questions.

How often a rug needs to be cleaned depends on how it is used. This answer would be different for a highly trafficked entryway than for a formal dinning room. We would be happy to discuss the condition of your rug.
