Bagdad Oriental Rug's one-of-a-kind rug cleaning facility utilizes a fusion of rug washing methods, which couples the hand-detailing of highly skilled technicians with the most sophisticated rug washing machinery on the market. With these techniques, we are able to enhance your rugs, bringing out the richness in color and softness of the wool. In addition, we also offer a superb dry-cleaning process that is best used for rugs or tapestries in which water should not be applied. This process is most employed for antique or fragile rugs, some tapestries as well as silk masterpieces. Our technicians have decades of experience, and with their specialized techniques, they clean your rug square inch by square inch!
Dust and Particle Removal
After you drop of your rug, the first step is to remove all excess particles and dust before we begin the deep cleansing process. We use our professional-grade vacuum cleaner to remove any large object off your rug and then use our Automatic Rug Dusting System to remove all excess dust. Dust is notorious for scratching and scraping your rug's fibers and can accumulate up to 1lb per square foot!
After the excess dust and particles are removed, we soak your rug in a shallow, fresh pool of water to help relax the knotting in the back of your rug. This process enables us to access as well as remove the grime and dirt that has been deposited into your rug over the years.
Application of Chemical and Enzyme-free Soaps
After your rug has been immersed in water, we take this opportunity to apply chemical-free and enzyme-free soap to your rug in order to preserve the original color and condition. We ensure that the soaps we use are gentle on your rug while tackling the deepest of stains.
Deep Cleaning Process
Once the soap is applied, we start our deep cleansing process by shampooing the rug in a circular fashion with a soft bristle brush machine. This technique creates a lifting action where any dirt or grime that is present inside of your rug will be lifted out and washed away! Additionally, we do this to both sides of your rug to ensure a true deep cleaning!
Flatbed Rug Washing Process
After the deep cleansing process, we place your rug in our flatbed rug washing system. During this process, this sophisticated machinery uses water pressure to push all the dirt and grime through your rug, cleaning your rug square foot by square foot! This specialized equipment places Bagdad Oriental Rugs as a leader in the rug washing industry as no local competitors own such an advanced cleaning system!
Excess Water Removal
After your rug has been thoroughly cleaned, we immediately remove all the excess water from your rug between two rollers applying approximately 250 lbs of pressure. Removing excess water is important as it reduces chances of color running and improves the softness of your rug as well as drying time.
Specialized Drying Process
Once all the excess water has been removed, your rug is hung-dry and transported to a separate climate-controlled heated chamber to complete the drying process. This step is very important as it prevents any contaminants from developing, as well as ensuring your rug lays flat.
Fringe Grooming and Detailing
After your rug is fully dry, we hand scrub and groom your fringes. It is important that your fringes look their best as it reflects the overall health and condition of the rug. Once this step is complete, your rug is ready to be picked up and go back to its home!
The rug's binding is very important as it functions to keep the edges of the rug from unraveling or becoming frayed. It additionally helps upkeep the beauty of your rug. It is quite common for your rug's binding to become damaged from the vacuum cleaner, furniture or even pets. No matter how damaged, we are able to fix your binding seemlessly!
An over-cast is needed when your rug starts unraveling along the fringes or the end of the rug. This "over-cast" stitch anchors the knots in place so that the rug does not further come undone. With our diligent technicians, we assure you that your rug will be given the utmost care and will stop unraveling!
Your fringe reflects the overall quality of your rug, so it is important to have them looking their best. Most cases of fringe damage are due to the vacuum pulling too hard on the fringe or pets using the fringe as their personal chew toy. Regardless, we are able to replace your fringe seamlessly so your rug will look its absolutely best!
Many clients opt to remove their fringe as they are tired of struggling with the vacuum. The constant pulling of the vacuum cleaner can seriously damage the fringe causing fray, irregularity, and ultimately unraveling. It is a great option which provides convenience and maintains the beauty of the rug.
Fringe extensions are usually performed when portions of the fringe are missing or frayed. Also clients ask for this service to elongate their fringe's length to enhance the beauty of their rug. When a technician is performing a fringe extension, they are reweaving the fringe into the base of the rug to give it a more natural look, which matches the motif of the rug they are repairing.
Whether your rug has been damaged by moths, pets, or furniture, missing portions of your rug can be quite unsightly. Our technicians are able to seamlessly reweave and re-stitch missing portions of your rug to bring it back to its original condition.
Occasionally our washing process cannot remove certain stains, such as wine, urine, feces, blood, wax as well as chocolate; so in these cases those rugs need to undergo a re-dyeing process by our experienced color technicians. They are able to remove the stained color in the wool and then re-dye it to match the original color and design. It is absolutely seamless, and you will be astonished at the transformation of your rug!
Wall Mounts to Hang Rugs
Rugs and tapestries are truly works of art, and just like paintings, clients desire to hang them on their wall. Our experienced technicians have been helping our clients hang their rugs by adding an additional heavy-duty fabric to the backing intended to be used with a curtain rod. It is a great option, especially when you want to preserve your rug and keep it clean!
Restoring Color Running
Most color runs that occur in rugs are due to exposure to moisture. Moisture from floods, spills, animal urine or even humidity can damage rugs, making dyes bleed into each other, usually beginning with the reds. Our experienced color technicians are able to flawlessly restore your rug by removing all the excess color run and then re-dying portion to bring it back to its original color. You will be astonished by the amazing work our color technicians are able to perform.

The Wonders of Wool
Oriental rugs are generally made of wool and are easily economically maintainable. Rugs of wool are extremely durable and consistently out-perform other materials. Unlike other fibers, wool is much more resilient, cleans better, and stays longer.
A professional Oriental rug cleaning will enhance your carpets, bringing out the richness in color and softness of the wool. Depending on the amount of traffic, a professional washing is recommended every one to three years for the maintenance of a beautifully clean Oriental rug.
To insure even wear, your rugs should be rotated once a year. But depending on the traffic, the need for rotation service may vary from six months to two years.
Oriental rugs, like most carpeting, should be vacuumed on a regular basis to remove dirt and restore life to the fibers. Be sure not to vacuum the fringe.
A quality pad used under your rug helps protect it from dirt, wear and slippage. We will be happy to provide you with the correct padding.
In case of damage, just about any problem has a solution with professional restoration. Old and antique rugs sometimes need to be rewoven where worn and restored to life. Newer rugs are rarely in need of repair. An experienced professional must always be consulted in these matters.
