Professional Hand Washing Techniques In Use On A Persian Carpet


Depending on the amount of traffic your rug sees it is important to have it professionally cleaned every two to three years.

Cleaning your rug with our specialist techniques will give it a greater length of life and will enhance its natural beauty. The essential task of removing all dust and fine grit, will leave your rug looking refreshed and brighter. However, the most important aspect of our rug cleaning process is halting the deterioration of the foundations and premature wear on the fibres. This is achieved by our "full immersion wash" in our specially commissioned Persian washing bath. The Persian wash is the most effective method at removing dust and dirt that has built up deep within the pile.

We have a thorough and methodical process to cleaning your rug or carpet. Using both traditional and modern techniques, our method is the number one way to clean all manner of rugs. Whether you have a Persian rug, Chinese, Indian, wool or silk rug our process will give your piece the best wash possible and will rejuvenate your rug’s looks. Our process of specialist cleaning involves the following steps.

  • A colour fast test, to ensure there will be no colour run during the process
  • Beating the rug from the front as well as the back to remove all the dust that has settled deep within the pile, stopping wear and tear
  • A full immersion wash in our purpose built Persian Washing bath, using specialist lanolin enriched cleaning products and conditioners. We do this three to four times
  • Drying in our drying room, while the carpet is suspended in our custom built, climate-controlled dehumidifying room. We allow air to circulate fully through your rug and draw all moisture away.
