Oriental Rug Cleaning Hawaii – Honolulu Oahu

As time passes, area rugs accumulate a considerable amount of dirt, dust and debris whether it’s on the ground or wall-to-wall carpeting.
Dirt and dust particles build up and become lodged into the silk, wool, or other fibers that had been utilized to weave the rug. This not only dulls the vibrant coloration of the rug or carpet but can also turn into a health risk if it isn’t cared for routinely
Not all Oriental rugs are the same, as each has different weaves and dyes, which determine how they should be cleaned. Our specialists are able to adapt our cleaning process to ensure that each specific rug is brought back to its original beauty and its value protected.
