Rug Cleaning

** PLEASE VACUUM RUGS BEFORE BRINGING IN FOR CLEANING OR REPAIRS **

In most households rugs will encounter all manner of adults, children and animals constantly walking, playing or laying on them, depositing dirt, sand, dust and crumbs. If left in the rug, this dirt grinds between the fibres and will cause deterioration of your rug.

In association with Melbourne's premier rug laundry we are able to provide a professional rug cleaning service with rugs picked up from our showrooms every Tuesday, and returned clean one week later. Cold weather, thick rugs and large rugs can sometimes add an extra week to cleaning time.The Rug Laundry we choose to use has 30 years' experience in caring for Oriental and Designer Rugs. Highly trained and professional staff have the expertise and dedication to clean and care for your rugs.

To achieve optimum wear and comfort from your rug, it should only ever be cleaned by a professional rug laundry.

We recommend a professional clean every 1-3 years, depending on rug use. Email or call with your rug measurements for a free quote

We do not recommend steam cleaning your rugs with your wall to wall carpet. Every rug should be cleaned according to its make and fibre, then hung and air dried. The easiest way to shorten the life of a hand tufted rug is to have it steam cleaned while laying on the floor.
