A rug is an integral part of a home in so many ways — and some might yet surprise you.
Rugs experience life with us, and they’re part of our quality of life more than we know. One thing you might not know about them? All rugs become a vital filter for bacteria, dirt, pollen and dust with the passage of time, and they help to keep the room clean and promote a healthy atmosphere every day. Hand-knotted rugs and handwoven Kilims are no exception.
This is just one of many reasons to get rugs cleaned professionally, and regularly, over time. Rug cleaning helps maintain your space’s hygiene, and eliminates the germ build-up that regular vacuuming can’t handle alone. Today, some sources even recommend cleaning every six months to ensure both yours and your rug’s long-term health.
Expert cleaning at least once every five years boosts the longevity of the piece and ensures a clean breathing air that is odor free. At Rug & Kilim, we employ a library of techniques to clean every piece with the utmost white glove service. With more than 42 years of hands-on experience, Principal Josh Nazmiyal and Logistics/Cleaning Lead Wilson Ojeda offer every manner of high-end rug care.
These shots are a glimpse into just one of many high-end clients who rely on us for white-glove rug cleaning. Here, we revisit our work for Jacque Grange at 432 Park Avenue, where wall-to-wall Texture of Color rugs are a vital complement to its modern sensibility. Luxurious silk rugs like ours welcome a gorgeous play of light, and with proper care they continue to shine and help the whole area flourish—both in design and in a healthy environment.
Handmade silk rugs are just one of Rug & Kilim’s many expertise in our encyclopedia of high-end rug care. This includes tapestries, kilims and even handmade rugs in all-natural materials like hemp, sisal, aloe, jute and bamboo. We cater to the needs of any piece—from antique to modern and every rug and flat weave style in-between.
We’re more than adept in stain removal and odor treatment, but these are just some of our exclusive services. This includes resizing and shortening rugs, cleaning fringes, binding, washing, and handling wear and distress to name a few. It’s our passion to keep up with the highest standards in white glove rug cleaning today, and employ all we’ve learned as an industry leader overtime. A Rug & Kilim client is a client for life, and our services are with you long after your rug leaves our New York showroom.
