Need a Quote? What to Know Before You Call:

Every rug has a story! We want to know more about your rug’s story so that we can provide the best experience. Think of this like an interview, where we ask questions to get to know you and your rug a little better. The more information you can provide us regarding your rug, the better we will be able to help you! It’s ok if you don’t have all the answers, so don’t stress too much over it. We typically ask questions like:  

  1. What kind of rug do you have? (Examples of answers could be: a Karastan, an old Persian rug, a shaggy rug, or a rug from Home Depot.)
  2. What size is your rug? (Include fringes. Note: the tag is generally not accurate.)
  3. Where did you purchase the rug? (A big box store, a local consignment store, overseas? Sometimes knowing where you purchased the rug can help us narrow down what kind of rug it might be!)
  4. What is the fiber content of the rug? (Wool? Cotton? Polyester? A blend?)
  5. Is there a tag? (This can give an indication of material and size, however we rarely come across a tag that has an accurate measurement so keep in mind our sight-unseen quote is only as accurate as the information we receive.)
  6. How old is your rug? (Purchased new two years ago, purchased from a consignment store – can indicate your rug has a history that you cannot know!)
  7. Has it ever been cleaned before? (Other cleaners don’t always rinse out the cleaning solutions completely, and home extraction machines do not have sufficient suction to rinse properly either.)
  8. Have there ever been any pets in the home? (We see so many unknown accidents from visiting grand-pets and neighbor pets!)
  9. Do you have any particular concerns on your rug? (Pet accidents like urine or vomitcoffee or wine spills, your child drew with sharpie, or possible moth damage from long term storage.)
  10. What else would you like us to know about this rug? (Did your grandparents make it while they were courting? True story! Did you buy it on your honeymoon? How special! Does it match the window treatments and the sofa and the formal China? Of course we realize how important it is to clean this rug!)

We are honored that you trust us to care for your precious rugs!
