The first thing that must be done is a physical inspection of the area rug. This will be followed by the removal of loose dirt particles, which can damage the rug during washing. Once that has been completed and any pre-treating has had time to take effect, the rug will be properly washed by hand using a mild detergent. Fringe on the rug is washed carefully to prevent fraying while removing any dirt. It is then rinsed with a combination of air and water to force any dislodged dirt particles out of the fabric. The rug will be gently run through a rubber roller to squeeze as much water from the fabric as possible. It is then laid flat to dry, and the nap is brushed with a nylon brush. If the rug has fringe, it is also brushed at this time. The rug is then moved to a temperature controlled room to finish drying. Once dry, repairs are made if requested and the rug is brushed one more time before being packaged and sent back to its owner.
Unlike other types of carpet cleaning, handmade area rugs must be taken off-site in order to be properly cleaned. Due to the specialized five step process, the rug will be out of your home and at the cleaner’s for approximately a week. Any repairs to the rug must be specifically ordered in order to be fixed during the cleaning process.

After our pet had an accident on our rugs we called Green Choice to remove it and the stain. The rug was off white and the stain ruined the appearance. After Green Choice was finished the stain we gone and the rug looked great. I thought we would have buy a new rug but Green Choice saved our rug for a very good price. They provided a great service and I recommend them highly.
I needed to have an Oriental rug cleaned after a few years of sitting in my living room. It was dusty and few food and drink spills on it. Given the price I paid for it, I check around for a service with good reviews and settles on Green Choice. A plus is that they also give free pick up and delivery. I got the rug back in a week and it looks great. No dirt and no stains. Great job of Oriental rug cleaning Green Choice.
