Our method

We will inspect every inch of your fine rug, create a photographic record of it's condition prior to cleaning, and document any areas on concern in a report that we will give to you prior to cleaning your rug.

Our custom made rug duster is a harmonic vibration / deep massage machine that gently dislodges sand and grit from your rugs foundation. Both the front of the rug, and the back f the rug are dusted this way, with thorough vacuuming between several dustings. This process takes between 15 and 30 minutes for most rugs.

The colors in hand knotted or hand woven rugs MUST be tested to avoid dye migration to unwanted areas. We test every color in your rug individually to ensure color fastness prior to selection of a cleaning process.

While most rugs can be cleaned using our full immersion process, some rugs are well suited only for "low moisture" or "dry cleaning" techniques. We will select the method most likely to result in the optimum level of cleanliness for your rug, while preserving the color, shape, and strength of your fine rugs.

If your rug qualifies ( Dyes are stable, and not disqualified by type ( IE: Sisal, Sea Grass, Paper rugs ) it will be washed using our full immersion process.

We will inspect every inch of your fine rug, create a photographic record of it's condition after cleaning, and document any areas on concern in a report that we will give to you when we deliver your rug.
