Oriental Rug Cleaning

Oriental Rug Cleaning Orange County

When it comes to Oriental rug cleaning, our experts at Refined Carpet | Rugs know that each rug needs to be delicately and individually cared for as no two Oriental area rugs are constructed the exact same. We make sure to inspect each individual rug, in order to take into account the individual rug’s construction, fibers, colors, weak spots and overall cleaning needs. From there, we put together an individualized wash process and technique to ensure each rug is delicately tended to while also achieving optimum results.

With over a decade of experience cleaning every kind of Oriental area rug, our experts not only have state-of-the-art equipment but they also have an abundance of hands-on experience. Through our years as a professional wash facility we have come across many Oriental area rugs that have been damaged by a poor cleaning and know that without a proper, professional area rug cleaning, your Oriental rug is likely to be damaged.

For example, if not professionally cleaned at a wash facility, things such as dye bleeding and pile distortion can occur. Our experts never use hot water when it comes to cleaning Oriental area rugs as this is one of the main contributing factors in color bleeding. Instead, we use cold water and a combination of gentle pH-balanced shampoos and fiber conditioners. Additionally, we make sure to set the pile prior to drying the Oriental rug in our temperature-controlled drying room, so as to make sure that the fibers within the rug dry correctly.

We know that many times our customers’ Oriental area rugs are antiques or heirlooms, and so we make sure to treat each area rug as if it were our own meaningful piece.

You can rest assured knowing your beautiful Oriental area rug is in the best of hands with Refined Carpet | Rugs.

Our Process

Our delicate seven step process:

1. Pre-wash Inspection – Before any cleaning takes place, our experts lead a cautious inspection in order to determine the best cleaning technique(s) to use on the rug, depending upon the material that the rug is made of. Next, we analyze the state of your rug by assessing worn areas, profoundly inserted dirt, and/or other extraordinary needs. For example, if your rug may need repair.

2. Pre-washing/Dusting –  Using a commercial vacuum, we are able to remove any and all large particles. Then, by using highly compressed air, we thoroughly remove all the dust particles and any debris. If these micro-particles are not removed, they can eventually wear away at the fibers in your area rug, so this is definitely an important step in the process.

Our method of rug cleaning ensures that each area rug is completely safe from dye transfers, and will remove all dirt from the rug. We apply a color stabilizing agent to the area rug to make sure all dyes are stable before the rug washing begins.

3. First Stage Wash – Next, we begin to remove any dirt, soil, or spotting by washing the rug down with water. We make sure to pay attention to the backing and fringe of each area rug, so as to ensure that every fiber receives a deep cleaning.

4. Second Stage Wash – In this stage, we apply a gentle organic, pH neutral shampoo (which is made for treating natural fibers) in order to break down all the grease and dirt in the rug. At this time we will also take care of any spots and stains. If the area rug has pet stains or pet urine, we will treat these as well. We then rinse away all shampoos and cleaning agents. The rug is then placed into a centrifuge that is able to remove any extra liquid or substance that could not be removed by hand. 

(Our competitors tend to use a rug cleaning method that involves steam-cleaning extraction. This method leaves your area rug with high amounts of soap residue that will, unfortunately, attract dirt ten times quicker. This method may also shrink and damage rug fibers.)

5. Grooming and Drying – We groom every area rug by combing the pile, and the fringe, in its proper direction. Once combed, the rug is hung to dry in our on-site, climate-controlled facility. Paying attention to every rug’s construction, we evaluate the level of heat, airflow, and temperature specifically needed for each area rug. The rug will then hang dry over night. 

6. Fragrance Scenting – A light fragrance is applied to the rug in order to further sanitize and freshen it. This is particularly noticeable, and delightful, to those whose rugs needed to be treated for pet urine.

7. Final Inspection – When conducting the final inspection, we make sure that the area rug is fully dried, and as clean as possible, or we will work through the entire seven-step process all over again.


Once your area rug has finished our seven-step cleaning process, we highly suggest having it protected with our Rug Guard Fiber Protectant. Rug Guard is a treatment we apply to your rug after cleaning, to protect your area rug from stains, and extend the time frame between now and your next cleaning.
