The Stain Expert – Rug Cleaning and Repair

See what our Oriental and area rug cleaning experience can do for YOU!

Living Room Tufted Area Rug

We are a family owned professional rug care studio, providing a full spectrum of specialized Oriental and contemporary area rug services designed to keep your rugs looking their best for as long as possible.

Cleaning the inside too

 Our focus is on cleaning all parts of your rug – especially the inner foundation yarns. That’s where our experience shows. We know that spills and pet accidents leave odour-causing bacteria deep in the foundation yarns of an area rug and the best way to remove it is to reach it, which can only be done through gentle, thorough submersion cleaning.

Each rug is unique

At The Stain Expert rug care studio, each rug is washed individually in an effort to eliminate any risk of cross-contamination with other rugs and all rugs are pre-inspected in detail before they are cleaned so that we can custom develop a best-method cleaning protocol around the specific needs of your rugs.
