Oriental/Area Rug Cleaning

Best Carpet Cleaning & Restoration is a professional, full-service Oriental, Persian and area rug cleaning company serving the Omaha/Council Bluffs Metro area.

In-Plant Rug Cleaning is recommended for Oriental Rugs and loose woven rugs. They should not be cleaned on location like wall to wall carpet. Best Carpet Cleaning cares for the finest to the most basic rugs from around the world. We will pick your rug up and bring it to our special cleaning plant where it will receive our very thorough cleaning process to get maximum soil and spot removal. Or you can bring your rug to our plant to save 15% off the cost. 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. Best Carpet Cleaning has long held the standard for Omaha rug cleaning.

  1. Pre-Inspection
    • We will perform a complete inspection of the rug to determine the type of fiber, any damage or spots that may need repaired or removed and determine the best cleaning method for each rug
  2. Dry Soil Removal
    • We use a variety of techniques to “dust” the rugs from the front and back to remove the dry particulate soils. A machine called the “Rug Badger”, and any many other methods are used. This is the most important step in cleaning any rug.


  3. Pre-Condition
    • Depending on fiber content and soiling type, the rug will be pre-treated to emulsify the soils. We use products designed specifically for each fiber. For wool rugs we use only “Wool Safe” approved products.
  4. Pre-Spot and Fringe Preparation
    • Any potentially difficult spots will be pre-treated with special solutions to increase chances of removal. The fringe is also pre-treated for maximum soil removal.
  5. Rinse or Wash
    • Depending on the type of rug it will be rinsed with extraction equipment on both sides or washed in a wash pit designed especially for Oriental Rugs.
  6. Speed Dry
    • Once the soil is rinsed away, the rug is dried flat or hung to dry in a controlled environment. Proper drying is essential to avoid unnatural shrinkage.
  7. Finishing
    • When the rug is dry, it is groomed and finished with soft groomers made for specialty rugs.
  8. Post Inspection
    • Our cleaning specialist will give the rug a final inspection. Your rug will be wrapped in brown craft paper to protect it from dust and environmental soils until it is picked up or delivered.

5 Reasons You Should Always Apply Carpet or Fabric Protector

1. Reduces permanent stains
A great looking carpet can be ruined by an ugly spot. Unprotected carpet doesn’t repel spillage as well as protected carpet. Being able to remove spots and spills more effectively, you can avoid permanent staining.

2. Helps save your traffic areas from becoming destroyed
Traffic area soil is very abrasive and cuts carpet yarns like a knife. This damaging soil can easily bond to an unprotected carpet. By applying protector, you will increase the life of your carpet dramatically. When you vacuum your protected carpet the soils will release from the carpet pile much more effectively.

3. Make spots easier to remove
The easier a spot is to remove, the less cleaner you will have to use. The less agitation you will have to use, and the less time it will take. Many spots can be removed easily with just water.

4. Makes your next professional cleaning more effective
Having protector applied to your carpet will enhance your next cleaning. More soil will be removed the next time your carpeting is professionally cleaned.

5. Helps avoid costly service calls
Although you want to call us out to handle any spot you cannot remove immediately, carpet protector helps you remove more spots than you could without protector. You may be able to save a minimum charge by removing the spot yourself.
