How To Care For Rugs

Oriental & Area Rug Cleaning Indianapolis


We hand wash every rug. The artisans that weave rugs have been hand washing for thousands of years. When your rug arrives we inspect and photograph it. It is then dusted and prepared for an old world hand washing. The rug is then hung to dry. Once the rug is dry it is hand groomed.  We then recommend applying a permanent fabric protector to guard against staining. Your rug is then wrapped and ready for pick up or delivery.

Many companies that offer rug cleaning simply do it on-site, they use the same equipment that is used for cleaning the wall-to-wall carpet in your home. Some companies even take the rugs off-site, charge a premium price, and then use THAT SAME METHOD they used to clean your wall-to-wall carpet in your home! Rugs, especially the fringes, can be damaged by using these methods. We use unique cleaning processes to insure we take the best possible care of your area and oriental rugs.

Whether we pick-up at your home or you bring your rug to our facility, an experienced staff member first examines the condition of your rug.  It is documented on your work order with any special client concerns.  Our thoroughness assures that all of your rugs’ needs are met during our cleaning process.

dry-soil-removalDry Soil Removal:

Over 70% of the soil in your rug(s) is dry, particulate soil that your vacuum can’t get to. Over time, this soil and grit build up and damage rug fibers, causing accelerated wear and damage to your rug.

The first and most important step in any rug cleaning we perform is dry soil removal. Through the use of our gentle dusting machines we are able to remove literally pounds of dry soil, restoring your rugs’ fibers to a soil and grit free state.


We only use surfactants that are biodegradable and environmentally friendly. These surfactants are certified as “Wool Safe” an international chemical certification group. This means that the solutions we are using in our cleaning process are guaranteed to not harm or degrade wool fibers or leave unnecessary residues behind after the cleaning.

washing-2Our cleaning method is not a fully automated system and we are able to give individual care and attention to the specific needs of your rug. How we perform this washing step is determined by the condition and soil found in your rug. The fringes are given careful attention and thoroughly cleaned. During this washing step we address any spots or specific stains.

Following the washing step a thorough rinsing is then given. After the final rinse we utilize a machine called a centrifuge. This machine acts similar to the spin cycle on your washing machine and gently wrings the excess water off of your rug.


We are able to remove up to 95% of the water on the rug during the cleaning process which shortens our dry times significantly, allowing us to return your rug(s) in less time than our competitors. Before your rug enters our drying chamber, the pile and fringes are groomed for a uniform look once dry.

Our process utilizes a temperature and humidity controlled drying environment. We are able to provide dry times as short as 3 to 4 hours after our cleaning process. Prolonged dry times are the major cause of many issues created by most rug or carpet cleaners. Rugs can dry stiff, colors can bleed or run, browning and yellowing of fringes can be a major problem, and mold and mildew can begin to grow on the rug in as little as 24 hours if not properly dried.

final-inspectionFinal Inspection:

Once your rug is completely dry it is given a thorough final inspection. Any spots that did not come out in the wash are address once more and the rug is vacuumed one final time. The rugs are then rolled and ready to be picked up or client is called to schedule a delivery date.
