Our cleaning process begins with a thorough dusting of the rug to remove all particulate matter in the rug before its soap and water wash. If need be, the rug is spot cleaned with dry cleaning fluid. Then the rug gets a thorough shampoo and rinse on both sides. The equipment used includes a high-velocity spinning machine, a power hose, and an extracting machine to completely remove the dirty wash water. A second rinse along with a second extraction of all excess water completes the initial cleaning. The rug is hung to dry in a temperature and humidity-controlled dry room.
Once the rug is dry, the fringe is cleaned separately and later groomed and trimmed.
In the final process, the rug is vacuumed front and back another 2-6 times to remove any dry soil and short-staple wool that may remain after the wet wash.
Meet Your Seller
"Rustigian Rugs was established by V. George Rustigian in 1930 in the midst of the Great Depression. "Rusty" started the business when the Depression hit. He dropped out of Harvard Law School and started the business.
"At the time my father died, my vision was for success; because I thought if I named the business after my father, it would take care of me. And it has. I study my business and how to continually improve it. We have established a firm base and have a strong presence with both designers and retail customers."
