This Oriental rug came to our plant with heavy soot and water damage. Our challenge was to remove the soot and repair the water damage without causing adverse effects to the rug and restore it to its pre-loss condition.

What kind of rugs does Ayoub clean?

We specialize in cleaning all kinds of rugs from antique to contemporary. Each and every rug goes through a thorough preliminary inspection to determine the condition of the rug. Based on the results of the inspection we decide the specific special treatments each rug needs prior to wash and which wash process is appropriate for each rug.
