Our Oriental Rug Washing Process

Oriental rugs are hand-knotted rugs made in Asia. With decades of training and experience, we’ve honed our rug cleaning process to a fine art, including investing in the best cleaning equipment on the market. We specialize in the wet clean and hand-wash process and follow the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification’s guidelines for all types of natural fiber rugs including Persian, Navajo, Chinese, and Moroccan rugs.

Here’s how it works:


We first inspect the rug.


We color test the rug to make sure the color does not run.


We dust the rug with rug dusters.


We wet the rug on our wash floor and scrub and wash both sides.


We thoroughly rinse the rug to make sure no residue remains in the rug.


We place the rug in the centrifuge and spin it. We rinse and spin again. It emerges 90% dry.


We hang the rug on a drying rack and inspect it.


We do touch-up work and clean the fringe.


If the rug smells bad or looks substandard, we repeat the entire process again.


We prepare the rugs for transport. We wrap the rug in brown paper and ready it for transport back to the owner.
