We do all our own cleaning.We never send your rug out to another cleaning facility. It is handled by us from start to finish.
The Hand Wash Process:
Your rug is first dusted, front and back, to remove loose dirt. From there it is wet down and lathered up with our specially formulated shampoo.
We use no chemicals in the wash process.
After lathering, your rug is rinsed several times until all the shampoo and extracted dirt is removed.
This is where our cleaning method differs from an in-home process or from steam cleaning.
The only way to completely remove ALL traces of shampoo and dirt is to rinse the rug fully, which we are able to do.
Once rinsed and excess water extracted, rugs are hung to dry in a controlled environment with warm air that circulates continuously for several hours. Most rugs will dry within 24 hours.
We guarantee yours will be 100% dry when it is returned to you.
Before and After - Persian Hamadan
This Hamadan had not been cleaned in many years and the grime was obscuring the color and pattern. After washing, the soft salmon and blue shades that classic old Hamadan's like this are known for are revealed.
Before and After - Persian Kerman
Our friend Noah Harms, owner of Something to Sell About brought us a client's beautiful 1930's Persian Kerman to clean. The rug had not been cleaned in decades. For more photos of this rug, see our Before and After page.
