  • Rotary Shampoo/Fresh Water Extraction

    This process is common for synthetic rugs or Oriental knock-offs. It is a cost-effective way to clean lightly soiled synthetic pieces.

  • Dry Foam Shampoo

    We use this option to clean fibers such as Rayon (synthetic silk) or when concerns of buckling, instability, or dye bleed exist. Many modern Afghan rugs fall into this category.

  • Mist & Brush

    This technique is often used for Moroccan rugs with turquoise colors and other dyes that are prone to bleed.

  • Absorbent Pad Cleaning

    This process avoids wick-up and is often used on contemporary or large bound shag rugs.

  • Tumble Dry Cleaning, No moisture.
