About Our
Rug Cleaning Service

The Shirt Butler cares for the most basic to the finest rugs from around the world. We will pick-up and bring your rugs back to our special cleaning facility where they will go through our thorough cleaning process for maximum soil and spot removal.

  • Fully tracked from pick up to delivery.
  • Pre-clean inspection: – individually assessed for condition, colourfastness and the most appropriate cleaning method. If any repairs are recommended, we will give you the repair options and quote obligation free.
  • Dusting: – thousands of harmonic vibrations per minute gently massage even the most ingrained material from your rug. Following dusting the rug is vacuumed to remove fine particles left on the surface.
  • Washing: – from minimum moisture to complete submersion cleaning based on the fibre content, delicacy and colorfastness of your rug.
  • Drying: – laid flat or hung on our rug tower for rapid air-drying to brighten colours and prevent browning.
  • Optional Treatments: – such as Scotchguard soil/stain protection or moth repellant.
  • Finishing: – including rug polishing to make the colours “pop” and restore the bulk and softness of the pile in addition to additional fringe cleaning, correction or grooming where necessary.
  • Packaging: – As most rugs are made of highly absorbent natural fibres it is not recommended that they be wrapped in plastic. However we will carefully tie them with cord for ease in handling prior to delivery. If they are to be stored we can wrap your rug in acid free Kraft paper.
  • Underlay: – Replacement of tired underlay with quality pre-cut to size Allstop Plus padded underlay can also be arranged.
  • 7 day turnaround as standard – sooner on request
