Rug Cleaning The process of cleaning and restoring fine oriental and area rugs requires a certain level of expertise. We understand that each rug is unique and precious and that is why we take extreme care and caution when cleaning your rug. Herat Oriental has a great reputation when it comes to cleaning rugs in Virginia, DC and Maryland. Cleaning area rugs is not something that should be neglected. Rugs can hide pounds of dust before they even begin to look dirty. This dust acts as an abrasive to the fibers of the rug and with time, will cause the rug to deteriorate. We recommend professional rug cleaning every 2 years. Herat Oriental has the knowledge and understanding of type, material, dyes, country of origin and all the factors that are involved in the creation of handmade rugs. Therefore, we handle every rug differently. We maximize cleaning without compromising delicate dyes or weaves. You can feel safe and comfortable trusting Herat Oriental with your delicate rugs.
