Our Five-Step Rug Cleaning Process

Step 1 - Dusting and Grit Removal

The first step in properly cleaning an oriental rug is dusting. It’s important to remove dust because it creates wear on the carpet fibers over time. For a thorough dusting, The Persian Carpet employs a two-step process to ensure that no dust and grit are left in the rug. First, a Badger dusting machine is used on the back of the rug to loosen the dust and grit.

Then, we use the highly efficient Auserelian System, an 80-pound air compression blower and vacuum, to clean the front and back of the rug (both sides of the carpet) until no more dust comes out. Our method is extremely effective, and your rug will be dust-free!

Step 2 - Washing

The Persian Carpet washes your rugs in cold water using a shampoo specially formulated for oriental rugs. No harsh chemicals are ever used. This process removes most stains, but the rug can go through further cleaning if a tough stain won’t come out.

Additional Carpet Cleaning Services

Soaking: If a rug has pet stains, it is soaked in a large vat of water and continually rinsed until the urine is removed. We may also need to treat stains with enzymes if odor from the stain persists.

Mothproofing: We use the most effective and long-term treatment available, magnesium fluorosilicate.

Pick-up/Delivery: If you need additional assistance with transporting your rug, we can schedule pick-up and delivery.

Outsource Cleaning: For silk rugs and rugs prone to color run, we outsource your cleaning to a trusted leading specialist in the field.
