Oriental Rug Cleaning

Experience is what you want when dealing with your fine area rugs. We have been cleaning rugs from around the world for over five years. To clean a hand woven textile properly, it should be cleaned in an environment where it can be hand cleaned and dried quickly. The complete cleaning process takes us between 5 to 7 days. A brief description of our process is as follows:
Cleaning Rugs in Killeen, Harker Heights, Ft. Hood and the rest of Central Texas since 2005!
Step 1: Pre-Inspection and Pick Up

We will determine as much as we possibly can about the type of rug and inherent qualities that may affect cleaning. We will outline the expected results and cleaning “prescription”. Our company will come to your home to pick up your rug.

Step 2: Dry Soil Removal

Woven rugs, especially hand knotted rugs are designed to hide dry soil. (A few years ago, the Eureka Company did a study and found that a 9 x 12 could hide 87 pounds of dirt!) WOW! We use a variety of techniques to “dust” the rugs from the front and back. A machine called a pile lifter, special vacuum attachments and many other methods are implemented. This is the most important step in cleaning any textile.

Step 3: Pre-Condition

Depending on fiber content and soiling type, the rug will be pre-treated to emulsify the soils.

Step 4: Pre-Spot and Fringe Preparation

Any potentially difficult spots will be pre-treated with special solutions to increase chances of removal. The fringe is also pre-treated for maximum soil removal.

Step 5: Shampoo

Most rugs are cleaned with an Oriental Rug Shampoo that is especially designed to get maximum cleaning while protecting sensitive natural fibers. (learn more about Oriental Rug Shampoo)

Step 6: Rinse or Wash

Depending on the type of rug it will be rinsed with extraction equipment on both sides or washed in a wash pit designed especially for Oriental Rugs.

Step 7: Speed Dry

Once the soil is rinsed away, the rug is dried flat or hung to dry in a controlled environment. Proper drying is essential to avoid unnatural shrinkage.

Step 8: Finishing

When the rug is dry, it is combed and finished with soft groomers made for specialty rugs.

Step 9: Post Inspection and Delivery

Our cleaning specialist will give the rug a final inspection and release it for delivery.

How to Care for your Oriental Rug

  • Rotation - To insure even wear, your rug should be rotated once a year. Depending on the traffic, the rotation may vary from six months to two years. 
  • Vacuuming - Oriental rugs, like most carpeting, should be vacuumed on a regular basis to remove dirt and restore life to the fibers. Be sure not to vacuum the fringe with your beater bar! Use the end of a vacuum hose from a canister vacuum. 
  • Padding - A quality pad used under your rug helps protect it from dirt, wear and slippage. 

Spot and Spill Procedures - Make sure that you safely and immediately clean up spots and spills before they set.

1. First, soak up the excess liquid by blotting with a clean absorbent material. Do not brush or rub        the stain. 
2. Then spot-clean with a mild detergent-white vinegar-water solution. Do-not over wet. 
3. Rinse area thoroughly with water and a small amount of vinegar. Avoid wetting the rug's backing.   4. Blot dry until most of the moisture has been absorbed. 
5. Allow to air dry. A fan or cool hair dryer can be used to hasten the drying process. 
6. For stains that do not come out using these methods, please contact us.
