Our cleaning procedures are tailored for oriental rugs, tapestries,
textiles, and hand tufted carpets. We use specialist equipment and
employ experienced cleaning
and restoration professionals. This ensures that your rug is treated
with the care and attention to detail that it deserves.
We inspect and photograph the rug to ensure we are both agreed
on its condition, its origin and the materials used in its manufacture.
We then test for colour fastness prior to commencement of any work.
The rug is placed in a machine that beats it from the underside
(simulating the old fashioned carpet beater). The vibrations loosen
any embedded grit and dirt from the foundation of the rug, a crucial
step in the process.
The rug is then placed the right way up and immersed into a pool
of antibacterial solution to thoroughly sterilise it
It is transferred into another pool and shampooed
Finally it is moth proofed and dry cleaned.
All our clients’ rugs are covered by our insurance whilst
in our care.
