Area Rug Cleaning – Oriental, Wool and Silk

Thoroughly Exhaustive Hand Washing of Oriental, Persian, and Turkish Rugs

You may have owned your cherished area rug for many years now, but have you ever had it washed?

Depending on the type of rug you have and the amount of traffic it receives, your rug should be cleaned every one to three years, depending on traffic, to help preserve its natural beauty, character, and longevity.  Click here to video our video.

Natural fibers such as wool or silk in most hand-knotted rugs are as soft and beautiful as they are absorbent. Odors, dust, dander, dust mites, and spills all love to stick to these fibers.  A thorough vacuuming weekly will help remove most loose soils but is ineffective in eliminating oils and embedded sand and spills such as coffee, tea, and even pet urine.

Oriental Rug Salon is SW Florida’s most trusted source for the cleaning, repair, and appraisal of all wool and silk area rugs.  We understand textiles better than most, and our hand-washing methods are trusted by many SW Florida rug collectors, interior designers, textile retailers, restoration, and insurance companies.

Our Area Rug Cleaning Process

Before the cleaning process begins, each area rug is photographed and inspected with Xenon and high-intensity lighting to allow our professionals to see issues not available to the naked eye. We make a note of each rug’s fiber and dye type, document any preexisting damage such as dry rot, pet urine, dye migration, staining, and fiber loss or tear.  We also determine the best method to use to make sure your rug is cleaned in the safest and most effective manner possible.

At Oriental Rug Salon, each rug is bathed individually in a bath of cleaning solutions specific to your rug’s needs.  Our unique, organic enzymatic shampooing agents, coupled with deodorization and conditioning solutions, are used to wash your rug according to its type, age, thickness, country of origin, fiber count, and amount of staining. No two shampoo mixes will be the same, as we believe that no two rugs should be washed the same way. Each rug is unique and special, and the care we take in cleaning your rug reflects this.

Oriental Rug Salon is a Certified Partner with the prestigious Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and the International Carpet & Rug Institute (CRI).  We are a WoolSafe Approved Service Provider, A+ Rated by the Better Business Bureau, and an eight-year-in-a-row-winner of the coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award.
