East Tennessee’s Oriental Rug Washing Specialists

Tuesday, February 1st, 2022 | Uncategorized | No Comments

Launched in 1985, Superior Rug Cleaning quickly earned a reputation for quality and affordable home and commercial carpet cleaning in East Tennessee. During its 37-year history, Superior Rug Cleaning owner, Kerry McDuffie, also earned a reputation as an innovative entrepreneur who routinely invested in new, state-of-the-art technology. These technological advances not only helped successfully differentiate Superior from its competition, but it also resulted in far superior cleaning results for its customers.

Today, as ever-growing numbers of homeowners and businesses are choosing hand-crafted Oriental rugs to replace wall-to-wall carpeting, Superior Rug Cleaning has once again demonstrated its talent for innovation. Superior has built a state-of-the-art Oriental rug washing boutique that safely and affordably cleans and revitalizes your family’s Oriental rugs.

Aside from their obvious visual differences, Oriental rugs and carpets are created very differently. Conventional carpeting is machine made and tufted with synthetic material, although cotton and wool are sometimes used in higher end wall-to-wall carpeting. Genuine Oriental rugs, on the other hand, are created using natural fibers such as cotton, wool, and silk. These handcrafted rugs are woven one at a time, with artisans paying individual attention to detail, color, pattern, and the motif of each piece of art they are creating. Each rug tells a story based on its origin and time in history in which it was created. These rugs are truly art for your floor.

It’s important to understand that the use of all-natural fibers and organic dyes in the handcrafting of Oriental rugs requires a different cleaning process than that traditionally used on conventional carpeting. Because of the use of natural fibers, vegetable and plant dyes, meticulous care must be taken to ensure that dyes remain stable during the entire cleaning process. While wall-to-wall carpeting can be cleaned with high heat and strong cleaning agents, Oriental rugs must be washed using pure deionized cold water and natural fiber safe washing agents, then thoroughly rinsed, and hung to dry in a temperature-controlled drying room.

Oriental rug buyers often invest a great deal of time and money in selecting just the right designs, colors, sizes, and natural materials they want in their rugs. Many heirloom quality rugs are passed down from generation to generation. However, a thorough knowledge of construction, fiber, and dye content is required to correctly, and safely, wash each rug. 

Superior Rug Cleaning is certified by a national certification board called the IICRC. Kerry and his staff attend classes and seminars regularly to learn and keep up with the latest in rug washing knowledge and advancements in technology. 

After visiting numerous other rug washing facilities nationally and attending a variety of schools and seminars, Kerry decided to create a state of the art rug washing boutique.  Located in Farragut, this state-of-the-art facility features his proprietary 11 step washing process designed to provide a rug washing experience unavailable anywhere else. In fact, as advancements are made in the industry, Kerry continues to invest in this new technology to deliver even better results.  In fact, the recently purchased Marinator Decon System cleans your rugs from the inside out by moving up to 80 gallons of deionized washing solution per minute through rugs to safely clean those difficult inner and back sides of your rugs.

A Centrum Force Rug Wash Floor was also recently installed that replaces the wash pits used by the competition. The Centrum only uses clean deionized water to wash your rugs. The best way to differentiate the two systems is to compare them to your choice of a morning shower or a bath. With a shower you always bathe in clean water.

If you are a pet owner, chances are you’ve had a rug ruined by pet urine. Though most rugs can be safely and successfully cleaned in Superior’s state-of-the-art rug washing boutique, the presence of pet urine or other animal accidents can compromise the dyes and degrade the natural fiber makeup of your rugs. Based on the construction of the rug, 100% removal of urine cannot always be guaranteed, although using their proprietary washing process, Superior Rug Cleaning has had good results. So, the presence of pet urine does not necessarily mean that your rug is ruined. Time is of the essence, so act quickly when an unexpected accident occurs.

You and your rugs deserve the decades of experience that Superior Rug Cleaning can offer to ensure that your rugs are thoroughly and safely cleaned. Oriental rug washing, like rug weaving, is an art form in of itself.
