The Most Thorough and Safe Wool Area Rug Cleaning Process
We are now the first and presently the only carpet cleaning company in Illinois to have achieved accreditation and certification for the proper care and handling of Persian, Oriental, and Fine Wool Rugs through the IICRC sponsored Fine Wool Rug Care Training. Our in-plant process is the only method to properly clean all wool rugs. Most homeowners are not aware that the typical carpet cleaner will most likely cause irreparable damage to their fine wool rugs by employing incorrect cleaning methods and incorrect chemistry. Essentially, wool rugs require aggressive yet delicate care and appropriate chemistry to clean them accurately.
The price you pay for a fine wool rug may not accurately reflect the true cost of that rug. Most fine wool rugs are Persian or Oriental. There are other rugs, such as those from Spain for instance, where rug making was introduced in 711 AD. A true Persian rug came from present day Iran, where many of the same families, clans, and villages have produced the same patterns employing the same hand woven techniques for over 2500 years. A high quality hand-woven rug of about 9′ x 12′ could take 3 weavers working 10 hours per day, 6 days per week, over a year to complete. You may pay retail anywhere from $300.00 to as high several thousand dollars for that rug. The price paid should have been significantly higher, however, the prices are “artificially” low due to extremely low labor rates in the Asian and Chinese markets. Proper cleaning and appropriate care is not related to the price paid for the rug.
