Area and Oriental Rug Cleaning

The rugs in your home represent a significant investment. Shores Fine Dry Cleaning wants to ensure that they stay clean and in the best possible condition. Vacuuming alone doesn’t clean your rugs. Allergens, dust mites, sand, dirt and hair are all trapped in your rug fibers. Regular rug cleaning ensures that all of these are removed prolonging the life and beauty of your rug.

Our Exclusive Six-Step Rug Cleaning Process:

1. Inspection

Each rug is carefully hand-inspected for tears, holes, dye fade, abrasions and pet contamination. Plus we test all dye colors for stability prior to cleaning.

2. Rug Badger

This exclusive process removes all of the embedded particles before cleaning. Each rug is then thoroughly vacuumed front and back prior to cleaning.

3. Washing

We operate one of North Carolinas only full submersion rug cleaning plants. Each rug is individually hand cleaned with Woolsafe approved shampoo recommended by Wools of New Zealand.

4. Rinse and Dry

All excess moisture is extracted and a rinse is applied to return the rug fibers to their natural state. We then speed dry, using controlled drying for your rug, in our state of the art drying facility using heat, air movement and dehumidification. This environment is controlled to make sure each and every rug is completely dry before final inspection.

5. Fringe Cleaning

All rug fringe is hand detailed using specialized techniques and detergents.

6. Final Inspection

Each rug is again inspected to make sure that its thoroughly clean and completely dry. It is then rolled and placed in protective packaging before being returned.
