Households, Rugs, & Linens
Frequently, households and delicate linen items are considered family treasures. Unfortunately, many use neither preshrunk nor colorfast materials, and careful attention to cleaning is critical. Safely cleaning such items requires patience, testing, and experience. Our Heritage Household Service is perfect for those precious items that need extra care.
You can trust that Margaret’s has the skill and expertise to handle all types of draperies, furniture, comforters, slipcovers, fine table linens, and area rugs—from vintage Persian rugs to modern contemporary and deep pile shags.
For those in our delivery areas, our experienced take-down and re-hang service and our on-site cleaning make freshening your draperies, furniture, and affixed window treatments a pleasure.
Smoke & Odor Restoration
Smoke and odor restoration of couture garments is Margaret’s specialty. Not all restoration jobs are the same: garment damage that occurs during and after a fire, for example, requires a wide variety of expertise along with a diverse range of technologies and equipment. The type of treatment best suited for any single garment is influenced by many factors, including the fire temperature, the presence of food, plastic and chemical odors, and the amount of moisture exposure.
Margaret’s Restoration Service has the nation’s broadest spectrum of cleaning and remediation technologies, along with specialized experts on staff who know what’s needed to assure the best possible results for fine textiles of all types, including leather and suede, window treatments, handbags, shoes, and all fine clothing and accessories.RESTORATION VIDEO & BROCHURE
Today’s window coverings require various treatments that range from highly complex to exceptionally delicate. A successful window treatment service requires both experienced installers to work in the home and artisan craftspeople working with specialty tooling, equipment, and solutions back at the cleaning facility. Challenges to be met include rubber-backed linings, sun-exposed fabrics, and water lines at the hem.
With our experience and proprietary techniques, Margaret’s is ready to meet these challenges. In addition, many drapes require hand cleaning and finishing to ensure that the delicately designed draping is maintained. But, again, our experienced installers and craftspeople handle the most complex and delicate jobs with confidence.
Home Restoration Testimonial
"Our home was devastated in the Malibu fire in 2018. The original service providers took our clothes to be dry cleaned, and it was a disaster. They stilled smell like smoke when we got them back.
We contacted our insurance to make a Total Loss replacement claim. They brought in the “Specialists” from Margaret’s Cleaners. Margaret’s team picked up two of my husband’s Armani suits and some stuffed animals for “test cleaning.” Obviously, given our experience with the first dry cleaner, we were very skeptical.
Margaret’s results were staggering. Somehow, they fixed everything. When I asked them, “how was it possible that these could smell so good when the other guys were so bad…?” Their answer was, “we’re Margaret’s… we have the skills and the technology to fix virtually anything.”
We gave them everything that survived the fire, all the clothes from the closets, including shoes, purses, leather jackets, and even our area rugs. THEY SAVED IT ALL.
The communication with Margaret’s was a lifesaver. With every text, call, or email I sent, their response time was unlike anything I had experienced. And Margaret’s never once made my texts or calls a problem. I felt like you truly cared…because they do.
I have never experienced such a level of professionalism. Margaret’s team was unbelievable. When they said they would call… they did. Their team informed me of every step of the process, and our final delivery was white-glove perfection.
I highly recommend anyone needing restoration services use Margaret’s cleaners. You will not be disappointed…"
Households, Bed & Table Linens, Window Treatments, Area Rugs, Furniture
We call it Heritage because so often our household items have a special meaning and are considered family treasures — they reflect our “heritage.” You wouldn’t trust the Victorian crazy quilt or embroidered napkins that your grandmother made to your neighborhood cleaner, would you? Safely cleaning these types of items requires patience, testing, and, above all, experience. Always consider Margaret's first for your table and bed linens, comforters, bedspreads, area rugs and fine furniture.
After spending a decade getting your family room to reflect exactly who you are, don’t trust that custom overstuffed pillow or special comforter to an inexperienced cleaner—it’s the exact color you looked so hard to find.
Our households services includes repairs and cleaning of your fine area rugs, window treatments and furniture, as well as bed linens and table linens.

AN ECXELLENT EXPERIENCE
We had an excellent experience with Margaret's Cleaners from scheduling our drapery and rug removal, to the reinstallation of everything. Our bedroom's white linen drapes are eight years old and they look new and white again! We also had two wool area rugs that were damaged by chewing, and Jim and his team, rewove them. They are beautifully repaired! Thank you, Margaret's Cleaners, for exceptional care of our carpets, slipcovers and draperies!
