Q: How long does it take for my rug to be cleaned?
A: On average our turnaround time is about 10-14 days, but can very from 10 day up to 3 weeks. In extreme cases such as during natural disasters we have had times extend as long as 6-8 weeks. Feel free to call us to see what our current turnaround time is.

Q: Can you clean my rug type?
A: Yes! We can clean any rug. If you are unsure if your rug is worth cleaning, we are happy to assess the value and quality of the rug. Our goal is to ensure that you end up with a rug you are happy with, even if that means it is better to dispose of your current rug and replace it with a new one.

Q: Can you clean silk, antique and Navajo rugs?
A: It’s what we do best. Specialty rugs are washed by the owner only, to ensure the utmost attention to the rug’s sensitivities are considered during the wash, drying and stain removal.
