Rug Cleaning in Los Angeles and Strange Rugs
Once in a while, we receive strange and uncommon types of rugs for cleaning and repair. Some of these rugs are special kinds of bamboo rugs with strange designs probably made by Indians or maybe other primitive but creative rug/carpet manufacturers. These rugs need their own methods of cleaning which is different from regular wet washing and hose-down cleaning. We cannot run them through ordinary water extraction machines, therefore we have to be creative and use other methods of cleaning, water extraction and drying!
The other type of rugs we picked up from a repeat customer were made with wool, nylon, jute, different types of fabrics, aluminum, and etc. This rugs could not be cleaned easily, but we managed to clean them properly.
Few days ago, two ladies with their two teenagers walked into our rug gallery. They were from Sao Polo, Brazil visiting their relatives here in Los Angeles. They bought two 4' x 6' hand made rugs in less than an hour. We chatted about Brazilian soccer players and how popular and famous they are world wide. It was a nice and friendly conversation.
I love my job because each day is full of excitement. You never know what you will face. I love its adventure. I am never board or tired. Every day is a new day!
