Durham Carpet Cleaning for Oriental Rugs & More

The Persian Carpet provides in-house carpet cleaning in Durham, NC for a variety of rug types, specializing in handmade oriental rugs. We use the latest and safest technology, ensuring that your rug is returned to you in its best possible condition.

The Persian Carpet: Our Two-Step Rug Cleaning Process

  1. Dusting

    The most important step in properly cleaning an oriental rug is dusting. For a thorough dusting, The Persian Carpet uses a two-step process to ensure that no dust particles are left in the rug.

    First, we use a dusting machine called a Badger, which is used on the back of the rug to simulate the old-fashioned method of beating a rug to loosen the dust. Second, we use the highly efficient Auserelian System, an 80-pound air compression blower and vacuum, on both sides of the carpet until no more dust comes out. Our method is extremely effective, and your rug will be dust-free!
  2. Washing

    The Persian Carpet washes your rugs in cold water, using shampoo specially formulated for oriental carpets. No harsh chemicals are ever used, and we do not use heavy machinery — all rugs are completely handwashed. This process removes most stains, but the rug can go through further cleaning if the stain does not come out.

Additional Carpet Cleaning Services

  • Soaking: If a rug has pet stains or a stain of any kind, our Durham, NC carpet cleaners add an extra cleaning step. We soak the rug in a large vat of water and continually rinse it with fresh water until the stain is out. We may also need to treat the stain with enzymes if odor from the stain persists.
  • Mothproofing: We use the most effective and long-term treatment available.
  • Pickup/Delivery: If you need additional assistance with transporting your rugs, we can schedule to pick-up and deliver your rugs.
  • Outsource Cleaning: For silk rugs and rugs prone to color run, we outsource your cleaning to a leading specialist in the field.
