Professional Rug Cleaning Should Be Professional. What Do We Mean By That?

Clients call in and sometimes do not know what to say, so they ask: how much do we charge for cleaning?
Telling the price without knowing what and how we do our job, is useless. Therefore, we explain that we're not wall to wall carpet cleaners and do not do steam or surface cleaning. What we do is professional rug cleaning.

Many rugs have stains and that is probably the reason why the client wants them to be cleaned. So we pay more attention to the stains and concentrate more on those nasty spots and stubborn stains.

If customers see value, then they do not go shop around without considering the quality of the work. When they see the passion, and professionalism, they do not look for the cheapest job in town. One of the important factors, is paying attention to details and this makes a big difference in delivering good jobs.

Atlanta Rug Market July 2014

I visited the Atlanta Rug Market for three days from July 9th to 11th, 2014. It was Summer and the market was very slow and a very limited number of buyers were around.

Many exhibitors had look alike and similar rugs. I am posting some the pictures of these rugs below.

In many showrooms, you would see silver/gray tones with accents of artificial silk. Some of these producers/importers have invented exotic names such as banana silk, coconut silk, cactus silk, and customers think these are real natural silk which they are not.

 There was an expert rug ID panel session on the 4th floor in the Oriental Rug Retailers' of America.

Like in any other show, some showrooms were a little busy while it was slow in other showrooms.

Best Rug Cleaning and Repair in Los Angeles

 Rug has been our passion for the past 61 years. It is in our DNA and the whole family here in the U.S., Germany, and Iran is involved in rugs. A rug, is not just a rug. It has story, and it could present one or different cultures. It maybe part of the history, and it may come from a distant part of the world.

If it has a signature, it may represent a workshop, or a famous weaver.
If it is a tapestry, it may deserve care and restoration.

Good rugs need good maintenance and attention.
If you have a dirty or damaged rug, let us save it and bring it back to us. Consultation is always free.
