Modern and antique rug cleaning.

Rugs have been around for a very long time with the earliest examples being made from organic fibres such as grasses, reeds, leaves and other natural materials.


The first true ‘rugs’ were probably rough cured skins used as floor coverings in the homes of early hunters. With tough, flexible backing and generally soft material (called ‘pile’), these rugs served to keep the home more warm and insulated.


There is evidence for weaving and the existence of rugs in ancient Mesopotamia and Turkey as far back as 7000 and 8000 B.C., and in Egypt (wool and cotton) as early as the third millennium B.C. Mongolia and China were also main players in the textile industry, and nomadic herders and Chinese weavers were among the first to develop and weave wool rugs.

Weaving developed in many other parts of the world in addition to Europe, including parts of the Americas as far back as 5500 B.C.E. Weavers began to use natural colours and gradually transitioned to using vegetable, flower, and insect materials.  


Silk development in China, the ornate, intricate embroidery and designs of Turkey and Mongolia, and the development of more sophisticated looms and weaving techniques throughout the world lifted rug-making from necessity to art form.


Italian merchants first brought oriental rugs to Europe, where they were used as wall hangings and coverings. By 1600, France had developed a dominant weaver’s guild, and England wasn’t far behind. The 1700’s marked England’s emergence into the weaving industry, and by about 1830, a good portion of the wool produced in England was used for carpets.

Rugs can be cleaned at your location or they can be picked up and delivered back once the cleaning process has been completed.


I clean each kind of rug in a different way, taking into consideration the fibre it is made from and what the most effective cleaning method will be.


Rugs can be cleaned on site but the same results as for rugs that are taken away cannot be guaranteed, although this is obviously reflected in the cost of cleaning.


Every rug is deep dry vacuumed numerous times prior to the main cleaning process which may be steam cleaning, dry solvent cleaning or deep shampooing treatment with hand cleaning. Stain protection may then be applied to protect against future spills.


All rugs that have been taken away will be completely dried prior to a final vacuum, after which, your clean rug will be delivered back to you.
