CLEANING AND RESTORATION
RUG Curator operates the premier Rug Restoration facility in the U.S. Whether it's a 19th century Persian Ferahan or a 19th century Native American Chief's Blanket, we can bring your carpet back to life and restore its value. We reweave holes, reweave scattered wear, repair moth grazing, fix slits, tears, straighten a rug if its crooked, remove puckering, cut out dry rot and reweave, remove color bleeding, overcast the ends, and do binding on the sides. We have a large inventory of antique wool that we have curated over the last 30 years to use to fix your rugs. We can return a badly damaged hand-woven pile or flat-woven rug to it's original condition! Our rug restoration specialists are familiar with every type of weaving imaginable and understand the characteristics of a regions weaving technique. We can replicate what the weavers did 150 years ago! Some rugs and textiles are not worth restoring, and if you are not sure, we will gladly advise you.

ALL NATURAL! NO CHEMICALS! SO BEAUTIFUL!
FACT! Did you know an area rug can hide up to 1 pound of dirt per square foot without you even knowing it?
In addition to operating a highly successful restoration facility, RUG Curator also operates one of the best Oriental Rug cleaning services in the country. After 28 years of experience, we know how to get the most stubborn stains and animal urine out of your beautiful hand-woven works of Art without burning or stripping the wool of its natural lanolin, or without masking animal urine with perfumes.
The first step to cleaning a rug is vibrating or 'dusting' the back to release 85% of deep embedded dirt. We do this with a machine called the Rug Badger, and our state of the art Tumble Duster. Harnessing over 40,000 harmonic vibrations a minute, our Rug Badger Pro will vibrate out even the most stubborn soil and sediments caught deep in the fibers of any area rug. The Tumbler (which we use for cleaning volume of rugs...) turns a time-proven, old-world tool in the rug cleaning craft into a fresh, contemporary, and highly effective tool that is essential for quality cleaning. This well-built piece of equipment both dusts dirty rugs and softens and polishes clean ones.The Tumble Duster is constructed of powder coated steel and driven by an ultra-reliable Baldor motor. The Rug Tumbler rotates in timed, alternating directions, tossing and gently bending a rug’s pile and foundation in a way that enables it to effectively give up embedded soil. The Tumble Duster & Polisher can be used at the beginning or at the end of the rug cleaning process. It uses the gentle tumbling action of a rotating chamber to gently remove dust and particulates from multiple rugs. We also use the Tumble Duster to provide a finishing polish for a wonderful sheen and soft hand. The same tumbling action used to remove dust and debris also provides a wonderfully soft hand and beautiful sheen to the textile.
The second step is hand scrubbing and/or pressure washing the pile with specially designed shampoo. The third step is extracting the soap and dirt loosened by the scrubbing. It is important the rug is restored to the right PH balance. The fourth step is drying the carpet. For this, we have a state of the art centrifuge that spins the rugs almost to 85% dry! Throughout these steps our highly trained staff can at any time notice stains and apply enzymes and other natural remedies to remove the stains. Our rates are the lowest in the country, and we aim to please. Give us a shot, you will not regret it, I promise!
No pick up and delivery fee for a 50 mile radius of Boise.
