All Our Services
For Oriental Rug Cleaning from Westlake Village to Santa Barbara, our company, Four Seasons Rug & Upholstery Cleaning is a family-owned business that welcomes your visit to drop off your rugs for cleaning and repairs. Or, we can send our free pickup and delivery van to you.
We are very different from other companies who do area rug cleaning, or Oriental rugs such as Persian rugs– because we do more for you, thoroughly washing out all the soils that have collected over the years. And by offering specialized cleaning methods for fine rugs such as silk, wool and cotton area rugs,depending or the age of the rug, the origin. We have high standard for quality control and provide up to 18-step process. Also, we are very experienced and have the highest level of education possible in the industry.
We have been doing this since 1988. (See Video Below) Our “Rug Care Studio” has a local reputation that is second to none. We can show you that all rugs are washed here, never sent out, and we do fair practice trade respecting the environment and providing higher benefits and wages to our employees.
Rug experts agree that in-plant rug washing is the number one method recommended for proper maintenance of Orientals and area rugs. They should not be cleaned on location like synthetic, wall-to-wall carpet for many reasons:
- Your rugs are probably made from fibers that are very different from those found in residential and commercial carpet. There is far more natural fiber such as/ wool, cotton, silk and jute used in rugs than in common carpet.
- Your rugs may be hand knotted with natural foundation yarns, as opposed to separate synthetic backing fabrics for tufted carpet.
- Natural oils and lanolin are produced by the sheep to make wool that will last for decades or even generations- don’ta rug cleaner strip it out with chemicals unfully equippedknown to you!
- Cleaning technology is different due to the potential for dye migration and fiber distortion- area rug cleaning and rug washing needs to be done by experienced experts in a shop.
Our company has many certifications- including the designation of MASTER TEXTILE CLEANER certified by IICRC “Clean Trust,” and Woolsafe USA. This is extremely important—it means you can rest assured that your rugs are always cleaned only by well-trained staff closely supervised by world-class experts. We have been in the rug, upholstery and flooring care industry since 1988 and are referred by many leading flooring retailers and interior designers. We are also an ASID Industry Partner (Los Angeles Association for Interior Designers).
We have cared for rugs for over 4,000 people with fine homes in Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, Santa Barbara and Camarillo. Also please visit our area rug repair page to see about our in-house hand-repair services. Cleaning your rugs in our plant allows us to give them special attention and treatment for a more thorough cleaning, controlled drying, and the use of various tools and processes that are not available on location in your home or office.
Failure to perform specialized procedures in a plant may result in permanent damage to the rugs and flooring materials under and around the rug. Incomplete soil removal may occur due to an inability to dust or adequately vacuum both sides of the rug. It is recommended that any rug as well as carpet exposed to heavy traffic, be cleaned at least annually.
We look forward to meeting you and caring for your fine rugs and textiles. Please give us a call for an estimate, an inspection or just stop in!
