Our 9-step Oriental and Area Rug cleaning system will bring new life to your rugs!


In-Plant Rug Cleaning is recommended for Oriental Rugs and loose woven rugs. They should not be cleaned on location like wall-to-wall carpet. We will pick your rug up and bring it to our special cleaning plant where it will receive our very thorough Nine Step Cleaning System to get maximum soil and spot removal. Exquisite Carpet Cleaning incorporates GREEN cleaning methods when caring for the finest to the most basic rugs from around the world. Having your rug cleaned in our plant allows us to give it several treatments for a more thorough cleaning, controlled drying, and the use of various tools that are not available on location.

STEP 1: Pre-inspection and Pick up
We will pick up your rug from your home or business. Upon pick up, your rug will be thoroughly inspected.

STEP 2: Dry Soil Removal
We use a variety of techniques to “dust” rugs from the front and back.

STEP 3: Pre-Condition
Depending on the fiber content and soiling type, the rug will be pre-treated to emulsify the soils.

STEP 4: Pre-spot and Fringe Preparation
Any potentially difficult spots will be treated with special solutions to increase chances of removal. The fringe is also pre-treated for maximum soil removal.

STEP 5: Shampoo
Most rugs are cleaned with an Oriental Rug shampoo that is especially designed to get maximum cleaning while protecting sensitive natural fibers.

STEP 6: Rinse or Wash
Depending on the type of rug, it will be rinsed with the extraction equipment on both sides, or washed in a wash pit designed especially for Oriental Rugs.

STEP 7: Speed Dry
Once the soil is rinsed away, the rug is dried flat or hung to dry in a controlled environment.

STEP 8: Finishing
When the rug is dry, it is combed and finished with soft groomers made for specialty rugs.

STEP 9: Post Inspection and Delivery
Our cleaning specialist will give the rug a final inspection and release it for pick up or delivery. Your rug will be wrapped in brown craft paper to protect it from dust and environmental soils until it is picked up or delivered. Upon delivery, we will lay the rug for you.
