Rug, Animal Hide and Textile Company in Los Angeles

This is what we do and do not do:

Our 3rd generation family Rug, Animal Hide and Textile Company has 67 years of history. We do not provide in-house services. On-site cleaning of movable rugs defeats the purpose of cleaning as we cannot thoroughly dust, wash and rinse out the shampoo which will collect sticky dirt after it dries. They cannot be properly dry on your floor as well and creates the chance to mold to grow in their construction.

We have a 10-Step Wash Process with hypoallergenic dusting and actual hand washing and deep cleaning in our own state-of-the-art facility with brand new equipment in Van Nuys. Unlike many others, we do not outsource. We’re the SOURCE

We’re the only Certified Master Rug Cleaner in the Greater Los Angeles with three generations of  history and passion since 1953. We use human/pet/nature friendly tested/certified shampoos and enzymes. Besides we rinse all the rugs we wash few rounds to make sure there is no residue left in the constructions.

The cost of hand washing and deep cleaning of your rugs will be based on the size, texture and condition. When we see the rugs, we’ll tell you the exact cost upfront. There are no surprise calls regarding new discoveries and extra charges. There will be no sales tax. We disinfect all the rugs these days with EPA Registered disinfectant.

Shag Rug, Shag Carpet Cleaning in Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley

Shag rugs with high piles were very popular in the 1980's but they're back again. Hand washing and deep cleaning of them is our specialty. We dust them first in our stat-of-the-art tumble duster to make sure all the dust, dirt, dry soil and allergens are removed. Then we wash them with pressure washer on the back and face. The next step is shampooing ans enzyming them followed with thorough rinsing to make sure no residue is left in the construction. After this comes the extraction of water by our centrifuge machine and then drying. This is the traditional way combined with the modern technology. 






After they are completely dry, we do inspection and quality control to make sure the job is done properly and your rug looks its best. If needed, rugs would be washed again or more detailing, stain removal and post service jobs will be done of course at no extra cost.

Restoration Hardware RH, Ben Soleimani Viscose, Bamboo Silk, Banana Silk, Hemp Silk, Man-Made Silk, Coconut Silk Rugs Cleaning in Los Angeles

We receive many viscose rugs made by Ben Soleimani and Restoration Hardware for cleaning. Some of these are sold as Bamboo Silk, Banana Silk, Hemp Silk, Man-Made Silk, Coconut Silk etc. Cleaning of these rugs at homes or even in plants in the wrong hands can go wrong. These are a couple of examples.






We know how to wash them and reverse the damage in many case. Piles can easily be distorted if over the counter products are used at home by maids. If carpet cleaners try to clean them at home, that may also go wrong so clients will be better off by doing some homework to hire the right professional and not an armature. 

If you're in Los  Angeles and need help call us or bring the rug to us and visit our operations. We will give you a tour of our facility and you will learn how rugs should be professionally washed. We're open six days a week.

Best Master Rug Cleaner in Los Angeles

It becomes a little tricky when it comes to rug cleaning. Should you hire a wall to wall carpet cleaner who claims to be good at in-house and on-site cleaning of your movable rugs?  Be smart and think this over! Ask yourself a few questions like: can he dust the rug in my home? Can he shampoo the rug in my home? Can he rinse off the shampoo? Can my rug be dry on the floor in my home? If the answer to any of these questions is no, then hiring a wall to wall carpet cleaner and in-home, on-site rug cleaning is out of the picture.

You need to hire a professional and not an armature. Find someone in your area who is certified, has the knowledge, passion, necessary equipment and the right setting and space. Do a little homework to find the right rug professional.







These are some of the pictures that show how we do what we do.

A Masterpiece Signed Amoghli Persian Mashad Carpet







We have this masterpiece that belongs to a client of ours who wants to sell it. Her house is not big enough for this beautiful art object otherwise she would use and enjoy it.

Amoghli brothers were the early 20th century master rug weavers and producers who had their workshops in the city of Mashad in north east Iran.  They only made rugs based on orders and in many cases these rugs were commissioned for the royal court or noblemen who could afford paying for these master pieces. 

The size of this hand knotted Persian Mashad carpet is 16' x 20' 5" (488 x 622 cm). Both ends and both sides were fixed and hand secured just recently. It was also professionally washed by a reputable rug cleaning company a few weeks ago. This rug has the authentic signature of Amoghli. 

This rug is a museum quality piece and is available for in-person inspection. You can call in (310-770-9085), email (info@rugideas.com), text or just simply come in for more information and price. This can be shipped to you as well.
