Escondido Expert Area Rug Cleaning Services

Looking for rug-care specialists in Escondido?  Your fine area rugs deserve nothing less.  They’re an important part of your home.  Perhaps a centerpiece of a room’s decor.  Or a family heirloom.  Regardless, they should never be steam cleaned, bonnet dry cleaned, or machine washed.  We’re Escondido’s experts in Oriental rug cleaning, Persian rug cleaning, and much more.

Our Area Rug Cleaning Services

We’re experienced in cleaning and protecting just about any Oriental, Persian, and specialty rug — from antique to contemporary.  That includes Chinese, Indian, Navajo and other tribal, silk, Persian, Tibetan,Turkish, and wool rugs.  Even tapestries, needlepoint rugs, and wool horse blanket rugs. We tailor each of our services to the particular type of construction and fiber.

  • Full immersion cleaning as recommended by merchants and museums.
  • Hand dry cleaning for fibers that shouldn’t be exposed to water.
  • Dusting to shake loose and remove contamination between cleanings and prior to washing.
  • Pet urine treatment to remove stains and odors.
  • Allergy treatment to minimize the effects of dust, dander, and other allergens.
  • Moth and pest treatment to protect your rugs from the damage caused by insect larvae
  • Soil and stain protector to reduce penetration into fibers and give you more time to clean and blot.
  • Padding replacement and addition using only quality felt to reduce slipping, curl, and wear.
  • Tea washing to restore an antique look to fringe.
  • Preparation and storage to preserve rugs during months when they’re not in use.

We can also refer you to experts in the Escondido area for repairs and formal appraisals.

Escondido 8-Step Cleaning Process

For most types of rugs we use our 8-step process for the most thorough yet safe cleaning possible.

Escondido fine area rug cleaning
  • Pre-inspection to determine the pile, weave, fiber, and condition.  We also test for color fastness and keep a record of all our findings.
  • Dusting to prevent caking and other interference with the cleaning procedure.
  • Odor removal prior to cleaning.
  • Full immersion cleaning, emulating thousand-year old traditional methods combined with the latest mild cleansers.
  • Rinsing under continuously flowing purified water for an absolutely thorough finish.  There’s nothing left behind that could cause fading, discoloration, premature soiling, or unnecessary wear.
  • Grooming via careful brushing for the best nap and texture.
  • Controlled drying, first horizontal to avoid bleeding then vertical in a ventilated humidity-controlled room.  Each rug is monitored for moisture content to assure proper drying.
  • Post-inspection and a second dusting.  We’ll repeat any other steps as needed for an absolutely clean rug.

Escondido Treasure

The Escondido area was part of the first US census of California in 1850, although it wasn’t incorporated into a city until 1888.  But that still makes it one of the oldest cities in San Diego County.  The word “escondido” is Spanish for hidden, but it’s debatable whether that was in reference to hidden water or a hidden treasure.  Today water is a treasure, so there’s really no difference!
