Santa Monica Expert Area Rug Cleaning Services

Your fine area rugs are an important part of your home and may even be a family heirloom. Many of our Santa Monica customers feature their rugs as the centerpiece of a room’s decor. They deserve nothing less than the best care and service. Be sure that you never steam clean, bonnet dry clean, or machine wash your fine area rugs.

Our Area Rug Cleaning Services

We’re Santa Monica’s trusted fine area rug cleaners. From antique to contemporary, we have experience cleaning and protecting just about any Oriental, Persian, Chinese, Indian, Navajo and other tribal, silk, Tibetan, Turkish, wool and other specialty rugs. We also clean 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.
  • Padding replacement and addition using only quality felt to reduce slipping, curl, and wear.
  • 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
  • Pet urine, stain and odor removal.
  • Soil and stain protector to reduce penetration into fibers and give you more time to clean and blot.
  • Tea washing to restore an antique look to fringe.
  • Preparation and storage to preserve rugs when they’re not in use.

We can also refer you to experts in Santa Monica for repairs and formal appraisals.

Santa Monica 8-Step Cleaning Process

For most types of rugs we use our extremely thorough, yet safe, 8-step process.

GEDC1370-1024x768 Santa Monica Area Rug Cleaning
  • Pre-inspection to determine the pile, weave, fiber, condition and test for color fastness. We keep a record of all our findings.
  • Dusting to prevent caking and other interference with the cleaning procedure.
  • Odor removal.
  • 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, horizontal first to avoid bleeding. Then vertical, in a ventilated humidity-controlled room. To assure proper drying, each rug is monitored for moisture content.
  • Post-inspection and a second dusting.  We’ll repeat any other steps as needed for an absolutely clean rug.
