Oriental & Area Rug Cleaning & Repair
At HandCraft, we use certified trained rug specialists to clean and repair your finest oriental and area rugs. Utilizing the basic elements of air and water, we customize the cleaning process for the needs of each individual rug. With patented tools and equipment designed specifically for the cleaning of oriental and area rugs, we provide a thorough and effective, yet gentle, cleaning process that is powerfully soft. Depending on the particular fibers, dyes, soils and construction of the rug, we will draw from a wide range of cleaning techniques to meet your individual needs.
We will be glad to pick-up and deliver any rug within the Richmond area that measures over 5’x8’ at no additional cost to you!
This service is available Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (please note we are unable to move furniture, but happy to roll your rug.) For more information or to schedule an appointment, call us at 804.212.5588, or click here. **Pick-ups & Deliveries at your door are currently limited to Wednesdays and Thursdays for rugs that are rolled and ready!
The base price for cleaning an area rug via HandCraft is $3.25 per square foot and the turn-around time is typically 7-14 business days. Depending on additional requests or requirements found concerning the care for your rug, the price and turn-around time to clean or restore may vary. Pet urine and/or odor may delay the return due to the added process that is involved. Please keep in mind we clean and repair each rug by hand to ensure proper cleaning and excellence.
Additional rug services such as scotch guarding, pet contamination and deodorizing, rug repairs, fringe replacement, moth proofing, and storage for up to six months is also available. Since these services are more labor intensive, it may increase the turn-around time and price. Rug pads are also available for purchase through HandCraft. To find out more about our rug services or to receive a quote, simply call our rug department at 804.212.5588.
Our rug cleaning process is also perfect for removal of pet odors caused by urine. We soak the rug in order to break down the urine salts that cause the odor. We then immerse the rug to remove all the contaminants. Take a look at our rug cleaning procedure below.
