|Fine oriental rugs, like heirloom quality antiques in general, can be preserved and passed down from generation to generation with a little expert care. Our cleaning and restoration services can bring out the hidden beauty of soiled rugs as well as re-pile worn areas of otherwise well piled rugs.|
|Our Cleaning Method
Our method for cleaning your precious rugs uses a blend of modern equipment and traditional hand cleaning.
DUSTING: Because of the dense pile construction of area rugs, dirt particles work their way down through the fibers into the backing foundation of the rug where they cannot be removed by ordinary vacuuming. Dusting is an important step in the cleaning process. When necessary we use a procedure that has proven to be the most thorough in dust removal: rug beating.
SHAMPOOING: A thorough Hand shampooing of your rug using specially formulated oriental rug shampoo. We make certain that more than just the top of the pile has been treated.
RINSING: At Main Street Oriental Rugs, we purge your rug with clean, cool water, assuring that all shampoos dirt and grime are removed leaving your rugs as clean as possible.
DRYING: Following tradition, we let your rug hang loose. We hang it from our climate-controlled warehouse and allow it to dry naturally.
POST DETAILING: Final spotting to remove any foreign matter possible will be done with safety considerations towards the fibers and dyes as a priority.
