Trivia Question: What is the oldest known rug?

Answer: The art of carpet weaving existed in Iran in ancient times, according to evidence such as the 2500-year-old Pazyryk carpet, dating back to 500 B.C., during the Achaemenid period.

Our Oriental Rug Bath Facility Serving Ventura and Santa Barbara

Many carpet cleaners promote themselves as “Oriental Rug Cleaning Masters” or “Oriental Rug Cleaning Experts,” but do not actually have the experience, training or specialized equipment necessary for doing a thorough cleaning of an oriental, or other natural-fiber area rug.  Usually they are actually not experts in Oriental rugs, and will use normal carpet cleaning equipment to clean your rugs, and do not even have professional rug-dusting equipment to pre-clean your rug with. This pre-dusting is what shakes sand and grit out of the rug as a first-step.

The number-one expert-recommended method of cleaning many of these rugs is called “full water immersion.” This is where the rug is actually soaked and washed in a flat bath of cold water, after a pre-shampoo to get out tough spots, stains, and soils.

Since opening our rug cleaning facility in Ventura (Four Seasons Rug Spa, 5757  Olivas Park Dr.  # N, Ventura, CA, 93003), building a tried and- tested system  which we purchased  in November, 2009,  and purchasing a second truck for pick-up and delivery of rugs,  we have been really ratcheting up production in our Oriental Rug and Persian rug cleaning operation.  Our Full water-immersion system has cleaned out pet stains, sand, dirt and stains from Camarillo to Ventura to Santa Barbara and our customers are sending in their testimonials.

Kate Garcia of Camarillo says: “Dan removed coffee stains from my oriental rug. Before Dan’s amazing work I was rather ashamed of the rug’s appearance. Now it adds beauty to my home again! I am so pleased! Thank you Dan for the attention you pay to detail, for your courtesy and professional treatment of myself, my home and a prized possession. I will not hesitate to recommend your services to my family, friends, and neighbors. I live in Camarillo and am very happy to have found Four Seasons!”
