Learn Everything You Need To Know About Proper Cleaning of Rugs in 2 Minutes

Our World Famous Cleaning Process

Never ever allow a wall-to-wall carpet cleaning firm to clean an Oriental or area rug in your home.
It may sound good, easier and cheaper but there is nothing you can do that will harm your rugs more than this.

Luster Wash for Rugs in New York City

Luster Wash

The ultimate cleaning for fine oriental rugs and carpets! The carpet is completely immersed with water and our own exclusive cleaning formulas.

Specially designed washing equipment allows solutions to penetrate freely to the deepest layer of the rug’s nap. This process removes ground-in dirt, gently, without crushing the wool, and in most cases restores the original look and texture.

Soap Wash

Basic cleaning for many rugs.

A systematic cleaning process that we use on area rugs, broadloom carpeting and many types of Oriental rugs. The rugs are first lathered with our own soap formula and water then put through an automatic washing machine which again washes, rinses and rings out excess water.

Rug Cleaning by Hand

Used on rugs that need special care.

This is a process in which we clean the rug with a dry cleaning method. All work is done by hand. This process is recommended for silk rugs, extremely fragile textiles, or rugs that have “fugitive” dyes which may tend to run in a wet cleaning method.

Rug Blocking

When a rug is mis-shaped or has built-in wrinkles, sizing or rug blocking may help. The choice is sometimes between getting it flat or making it square.

With care, blocking can help make a rug more attractive and usable. Done the wrong way, blocking can distort or even damage a rug. Over-aggressive blocking will not remedy the problems of a poorly woven rug. Re-sizing or blocking is definitely a process best handled by a Certified Rug Specialist.

Rug Drying Process in NYC

Rug Drying

The drying process is an intrical part of the cleaning process. If the rug is not properly dried and allowed to remain wet for too long, problems such as mildew and dry rot can occur.

Our dry-rooms are state of the art and we control the amount of heat and humidity so that the rug dries under optimal conditions. During a drying cycle, we may remove the heated air several times to reduce moisture from the air. Multiple fans circulate air in the room to ensure that drying leaves rugs in a natural state.
