Services: Expert Cleaning- ¬†Having a clean rug will extend the life expectancy of your hand made rug.
The steps of the cleaning process:
Step One: The most important step is that of removing years of accumulated dust imbedded in the rug.
Step Two:¬†After testing for color run, the next step is to soak the rug in a shallow pool.
Step Three:¬†Once completely soaked, the rug is ready to be hand washed. We use natural soaps and gentle brushing of the front and back of the rug.
Step Four:¬†All remaining dirt and residue is thoroughly removed with high water pressure. If any dirt or residue remains, it can deteriorate the wool, and ¬†shorten the lifespan of the rug.
Step Five:¬†The rug goes through a heavy-duty machine wash which uses high pressure water and squeezing at the same time, to remove as much water as possible.¬†¬†Then the rug is hung in the heating room to dry.
The Final Step:¬†At this time the rug is assessed for any spots requiring special care, or repairs to the fringe.¬† The following services are available as needed at this point:
‚ÄĘ¬†¬† ¬†Fringing (oriental, pre-made)
‚ÄĘ¬†¬† ¬†Major restoration¬†
‚ÄĘ¬†¬† ¬†Moth proofing¬†
‚ÄĘ¬†¬† ¬†Pet deodorizing¬†
‚ÄĘ¬†¬† ¬†Water damage¬†
‚ÄĘ¬†¬† ¬†Mildew and mold repair
