Karastan Rug Cleaning

Karastan Rug Cleaning in Wake Forest, Raleigh, Chapel Hill, NC

Karastan rugs are a very popular choice for many fine homes throughout the Triangle area. With regular maintenance, these fine rugs can look fabulous for many years. The majority of the Karastan rugs we see come through our shop for cleaning or repair are family pieces, either passed down through generations or purchased over 40 years ago! We love being able to preserve the memories these rugs hold for future generations.

Known for quality and durability, Karastan rugs have been made in Eden, North Carolina since the early 1900s.  (Did you know you can contact the manufacturing facility to schedule a tour?!) The wool used to make these rugs is the luxurious Wools of New Zealand. Today, Karastan is the only US-made spool Axminster.

Karastan rug cleaning is very straightforward for the professional rug cleaner. The wool is resilient and can clean up quite beautifully despite normal wear and tear. Regular vacuuming will help keep dry soiling to a minimum. If you are having difficulty maintaining the appearance or health of your Karastan wool rug, it is best that you contact Pettyjohn’s.

Karastan Rug Cleaning and Maintenance Tips

It is possible to spare your Karastan rug from further damage.

  • Do not use beater bars. Instead, use a vacuum with hard surface suction only.
  • Use caution when vacuuming the rug to prevent causing damage to the fringes.
  • Loose or torn fringes can be replaced or repaired.
  • Worn side cords can be easily replaced.
  • Karastan wool rugs are very durable and can be successfully spot cleaned when using proper procedures. Blot, don’t scrub!
  • Localized spot cleaning can be successful if the spot or spill is caught soon enough and the proper spot cleaning agent is utilized. If you need advice or recommendations on spot cleaning check out our spot cleaning page or give us a call!

Karastan Fringe Removal

Our client was tired of dealing with the long fringes that come standard on a Karastan and asked for them to be removed. We were able to wash the rug and remove the fringes, securing the ends with new factory serge binding. The end result is exactly what our client wanted – a clean and healthy rug, sans fringes!

I researched quite a bit to find a place that could professionally clean my Oriental rugs. They were very dirty after years of wear and tear and I doubted they would ever get entirely clean, but I gave Pettyjohn’s a shot! They did not disappoint! They managed to bring the rugs back to their original beauty, which was no easy feat! The staff did a great job of explaining the process and it was quickly clear they take their job seriously. I would highly recommend Pettyjohn’s if you have rugs or furniture you truly care about and want to bring back to their original state of beauty!!

I had a great experience with Pettyjohn’s. I purchased a vintage oriental carpet at an antique store and wanted it cleaned before I put it in my home. The store recommended Pettyjohn’s for this type of rug. When I dropped the rug off, I had the opportunity to meet Robert, the owner. He is very charismatic and gave me a tour of the facility. I felt like I was on an elementary school field trip – it was great. He explained what each of the machines did and that they try to be as green as possible – there is a cistern to collect rain water! They not only clean rugs and carpets, but also sofa cushions and other upholstery items.My rug was ready before the original date they had provided. All of the people that work at Pettyjohn’s are very friendly and professional. They seem to take a lot of pride in their work and their reputation. I would definitely use Pettyjohn’s again the future.

Very helpful and transparent. I had a rug that was in bad shape and they told me that it would cost more to clean and repair than to replace.

I recently took my rug to get cleaned because after 7 years of use, it needed to be cleaned. Kids and dogs can do some damage. I picked the rug up today. It looks brand new. My wife couldn’t be happier. I highly recommend their services!

I appreciate Pettyjohn’s great service and using environmental supportive techniques. They do so much more than just rugs! While working with a client I accidentally spilled oil on my jeans. I dropped off a small rug and mentioned my jeans and they gave me a product to try and IT WORKED! Anything needing cleaning – give them a try. Need a rug rebound or cut – try Pettyjohns. Need furniture cleaned – yep, I’m calling Pettyjohns!

Pettyjohns cleans our carpets annually. The cleaning yesterday was outstanding. The carpet looks as good as new. A coke stain is totally gone and the carpets dried in less than 2 hours. Outstanding work.
