Oriental rugs are beautiful and expensive handmade pieces. Cosmopolitan Carpet and Rug Cleaning's qualified technicians will give them the proper care they deserve.

We specialize in cleaning delicate rugs of all kinds, including Persian, Pakistani, Afghani, Chinese, and Indian rugs of many types of fibers including cotton, wool, and silk, as well as a variety of synthetics, such as fringed synthetics, bound synthetics, braided rugs etc. We use a whole line of cleaning agents and stain removers specially formulated to safely and effectively clean more delicate fibers.

Steps to expertly cleaned Oriental and area rugs:

Pre-Inspect. Through pre-inspection, condition and documentation of each rug– we look for fading, discoloration, stains, wear, pre-existing damage, and if any odors. We determine the clean ability for each rug

Color Fastness. Each rug will be tested for color fastness to determine the potential for dye migration and to better determine the appropriate cleaning process.

Pre-Clean. Traffic and heavily soiled areas. (Discoloration due to wear, fading, or chemical reactions are not reversible.)

Pre-Treat. Spots, spills and stains using the most advanced spotting techniques.

Dusting. Dust and particulate matter lying deep within the rug are removed using specially designed tools. Foot traffic and dry soil can act like sandpaper on the fiber, and this step is often referred to as "dusting" of the rug. Vacuuming, shaking, or beating is not nearly as effective.

Submersion Cleaning. Agitate, Dissolve, Suspend and Extract the ground in soils.

Rinse. To further remove soil and cleaning residue (to restore the natural feel).

Restore. The nap with special grooming tools.

Dry. The rugs are hung on special drying racks. Drying time is less then 24 hours.

Final Inspection.


We maintain the highest standards, so our inspection process is thorough. We don't hesitate to repeat any steps that might be necessary to provide you with the cleanest rug possible. It's that final touch that means so much.

*NOTE: During step #1, pre-inspection - we may determine that additional steps beyond standard cleaning are necessary to restore your rug to its best possible appearance. Standard cleaning is done at our normal or quoted price. Unusually heavily soiled rugs, excessive spotting, by-hand cleaning, deodorization, Pet contamination and situations that require extra labor or materials may require an additional charge.
