Wool Rug Cleaning Services for Antique & Chinese Rug
Oriental rugs, sometimes called Chinese or Persian, feature stunning patterns and colors. These gorgeous pieces can brighten up your living space while cushioning hardwood floors.
A vintage rug is a great way to add a touch of class to any room, and most of these beautiful rugs are unique handcrafted pieces that use traditional techniques to weave the wool fibers and form intricate patterns.
However, wool fibers can be difficult to clean. They tend to trap dust, dirt, and other allergens, and stains can also be challenging to remove due to the porous nature of the fibers. Over the years, Oriental rugs can become dull, especially in high-traffic areas. Stains can ruin the pattern, and rugs can even retain unpleasant odors.
Getting rid of stains, odors, and allergens isn’t easy. Cleaning with brushes can damage the wool fibers, as can using too much water. Most cleaning products will dilute the dye used to color the delicate wool fibers. Cleaning an Oriental rug yourself can result in damage to the wool fibers or cause discoloration to appear.
Instead of attempting to clean your handcrafted rug yourself, it’s best to use professional wool rug cleaning services such as Margaret’s Couture Cleaners. Our wool cleaning experts have specialized equipment and products that will clean wool fibers without damaging the rug.

With 5 locations, hundreds of 5-star reviews, and many awards under our belt, you can trust that we have the skill and expertise to handle all types of draperies, furniture, comforters, slipcovers, fine table linens, and rugs—from vintage Persian rugs to high-end modern contemporary and deep pile shags.
Working with delicate items has taught us a lot about safe cleaning techniques and helped us develop a unique process for cleaning fragile materials without damaging the item.
We’ve spent 60 years perfecting the art of cleaning rugs with wool fibers. Our safe cleaning process removes the particles trapped under the fibers, a step that reduces unnecessary wear-and-tear on the fibers and expands the lifespan of your wool rug.
Besides removing dust and dirt trapped due to traffic, we can eliminate odors that have settled into the rug, including pet odors and tobacco smells.
If your rug has stains, we’ll remove them to restore these areas so the colors match the rest of the rug. We’ll also eliminate and prevent bacteria and mold growth for a healthy living space.
We pay special attention to the dyes used to color the wool fibers of the rugs we work on. We use the latest, highest-quality products and technologies to preserve and restore the initial colors without causing the wool fibers to shrink or tear.

We know that each wool rug is unique. We approach each project with the same level of care and always take the time to inspect your items to determine the best approach.
When working on an Oriental rug, we’ll start by assessing the overall state of the rug. We’ll look for visible stains, inspect the fibers for trapped particles, and determine if we need to neutralize unpleasant odors or address issues like mold and bacterial growth.
We’ll also study the rug and determine the thickness and quality of the wool, silk, or cotton used for the pile. We’ll adapt our approach based on whether your rug has a wool or cotton backing.
Next, we’ll determine whether your rug uses natural or chemical dyes. We’ll select the right products and techniques to prevent unwanted reactions.
Once we know more about the rug and the issues to address, we’ll assemble a cleaning plan and get to work. Our experts are available to answer any questions you might have, and we’ll offer a detailed quote ahead of time if you request an estimate.

Valentino Handbag #3
Description of Services: A Rodeo Valentino boutique’s heartbroken client brought into their store what was a brand-new purse that she had recently purchased from them. This beautiful lambskin bag with contrasting quilted stitching and studded accents was destroyed (or so they all thought) by a large hand sanitizer spill. The client was going to throw it away...until they recommended Margaret’s Cleaners. They had learned over the years if there was any chance of successful cleaning or repairs of high-end items, Margaret’s is the only place to go.
"Margaret’s did not disappoint them! When it was delivered back to the store the employees raved! Here are some of the comments we heard... “Blown away” ... “An amazing save” ... “Truly astonishing” ... “Looks new again” ... “As though damage never happened” ... “Absolutely spectacular work!”
"Margaret’s is hands down, THE BEST!”
— The staff at the Rodeo
UPS just delivered my second Prada handbag to be cleaned by your business. I can't tell you how impressed I am by the beautiful results! The woman that called to tell me it was being shipped was so helpful and thorough. She was delightful and really went out of her way with customer service.
Though I live the majority of the time in Denver, I will always make a point of using your business whenever I am staying at our second home in La Jolla. Thank you!

No one in Tucson could clean my bag and have any confidence in the results. I found Margaret's on the internet. Thank you for the wonderful job that you did on my handbag. It looks better than new! I'm giving your information to my local dry cleaner as they are very interested in being able to refer clients to you who have similar problems as mine.

I was not able to find someone locally [to fix my purse]. I did an internet search and based on your website and prompt response to my email, determined that your company was probably the best! I was very pleased with how everything was handled. In today's world, it is wonderful to find a company with ""old world"" values. Thank you so much!
