Oriental & Area Rug Cleaning

Looking for Rug Cleaners in the North Shore Area?

Wiz Team, Inc. has been caring for many rugs, ranging from the most basic machine-made to fine, hand-made Orientals such as Persian, Indian, Chinese, Afghan, and so many more from various parts of the world. If you want to ensure the proper care of your rugs, then call us, only a certified specialist should care for them. An Oriental rug can be a lifetime purchase and should last generation after generation if cared for properly. While an area rug is a great addition to any room, they receive a fair amount of traffic and can quickly become dirty. Even though your area rug looks clean, normal settling of dust is abrasive and will shorten the life of your rug.

Why Choose Us For Your Rug Cleaning

We recommend area rug cleaning annually. It is also important to rotate it once a year so your Oriental rug gets an equal amount of traffic, exposure to light and wear evenly. Not all rugs are the same. They have different weaves and different dyes, which dictate how they are cleaned. We are able to adapt our cleaning process to ensure that each specific rug is brought back to its original beauty and its value is protected. Not all rug cleaners have the experience or knowledge of rugs to be able to this!

Proper Care Techniques

Yes, we use the most modern of tools when appropriate – but never at the expense of saving time or losing our careful attention to detail, the cornerstone of our cleaning process. Due to a wide variety in construction materials, types and styles of area rugs, our certified technicians will carefully examine, identify and inspect all rugs to determine pre-existing conditions that may need to be addressed, fiber content, colorfastness, cleaning concerns, and the appropriate cleaning method. Being able to ID a rug is critical to proper cleaning. Knowing what you are working on is important to providing proper care. We will then provide you with a detailed no-obligation quote and work authorization request.

Safe Care Cleaning Steps

Once you have given us written authorization and approved the quote, our cleaning specialists will pick up your rug and bring it to our facility where it will receive our very thorough “Safe Care” rug cleaning steps to get maximum soil and spot removal. Your rug will be delivered back to your home (pickup and delivery charges apply), or in some cases we can clean the rugs on site. Having your rug cleaned in our plant allows us to give it several treatments for a more thorough cleaning, controlled drying, and the use of various tools that are not available on location. You can also bring your rug to our facility and save the pickup and delivery charges.

With Wiz Team your rug will be handled with proper care. Remember to always use certified cleaners to preserve your valuable oriental rug to have for many years to come. We also specialize in cleaning fine fabrics and textiles. Delicate textiles, tapestries, and wall hangings, especially hand woven and loomed textiles, require careful cleaning and care to extend their life and beauty. After inspecting all silks, wools, and other fine fabrics, we will carefully clean them to preserve and enhance their beauty, fiber integrity, woven designs, and dyes.

Our master rug specialists treat each rug with special attention and the cleaning process is customized for each particular type of fiber, whether natural or synthetic. At Wiz Team, Inc. we put a lot of time and care into cleaning each Oriental rug, Area rug or any other Fine Fabric item entrusted to us.

Frequently Asked Questions

Famous Oriental Rugs

Do you have a valuable oriental rug or a rug that is a fine family heirloom that’s been handed down for generations? How about 500 years.

The most famous oriental rug in the world is believed to be the Ardabil Carpet. It is woven silk and wool pile. It originally started out as two carpets but earthquake damage in the late 1800’s prompted its curators to take parts from one to repair the other.

The current rug contains more than 33 million hand-tied knots and measures 34’6″x17’6″. This masterpiece was originally made during the 16th Century and is now on display at London’s, Victoria & Albert Museum.  It was made for the Mosque at Ardabil, Iran in the 1530’s.

If you need repairs or cleaning of fine, hand made oriental rugs, just call Wiz Clean.

Oriental Rug Cleaning Tips

Oriental rugs are beautiful pieces of artwork. They also happen to get trampled on consistently, and depending on how much foot traffic your rug gets, it’s important to have them cleaned by a professional rug cleaning service (especially one that specializes in Oriental rug cleaning) at least once every three years.

However, it’s important to note that this timeframe is listed for rugs that get little to no foot traffic. If your rug is in an area that is highly susceptible to traffic, the piece should be cleaned at least once a year, professionally.

Wiz Clean is a wonderful Oriental rug cleaning company that has been in the Oriental rug business for multiple generations and can provide a deep-clean for you twice a year, once a year, once every three years, or truly whenever necessary. They require all of their handlers to use a 6-step washing system that ensures that even the smallest of dust particles is removed from the rug.
There is an ongoing debate about whether or not cleaning should be handled in the winter or the summer. The fact is, cleaning it during any season is better than not cleaning it at all. Wiz Clean can provide you with the services required to keep your rug looking brand new, fully restored, and will keep you breathing easier in your home. Imagine your son or daughter laying on the rug to watch TV and coming into contact with pollen, dust, bacteria, and maybe even mold.
Wiz Clean has the expertise and ease of convenience for you to get your rug cleaned (any time of year) and as often as necessary. Rated highly among consumers, they will provide an estimate for you according to your specific rug, send you a shipping sleeve, and conveniently have FedEx come pick it up. Whether once a year, twice a year, or every couple of years, it’s important to have Oriental rugs professionally cleaned depending on foot traffic and atmosphere.

Oriental Rug Washing Tips

One of the most popular services we provide is oriental rug washing. An oriental rug is a hand-knotted rug constructed of natural fibers. Oriental rugs are from the East while Occidental rugs are from the West. There are oriental rugs that have piles and ones that do not. Kilim rugs are examples of oriental rugs that do not have a pile.

Specialty rugs are also a large part of our oriental rug washing service.

Both rugs with piles and those without will have varying names based on the region or country in which they were constructed. Many of the design concepts from these rugs have been borrowed from all cultures and bear symbolic meaning. These rugs are true works of art and many precautionary measures must be taken when we apply our oriental rug washing process to cleaning them.

Our technicians are thoroughly trained in the art of oriental rug washing. It takes a great deal of time, training, and study to understand and identify the complexity of hand-knotted rugs. It also takes years of studying fiber types, rug construction, knotting techniques, dye systems, geographic regions, and cultures.

These variables all have a dramatic impact on the way a rug is treated during an oriental rug washing cycle. Knowing all variables ensures your rug is properly cared for from the moment it comes into our plant until its return to your home.

Understanding and respecting the weavers and their methods of rug construction and the environment in which these rugs were woven allows us to be at the top of a unique list of quality professional firms offering oriental rug washing.

CAUTION: ORIENTAL RUG WASHING SHOULD NEVER BE DONE IN YOUR HOME! Washing a rug requires dusting, cleaning both front and back, controlled drying with proper equipment, and fringe cleaning. This cannot be accomplished at your home or place of business.
