Oriental Rug Cleaning
The Makoor Process
For hundreds of years, the people who create the world's finest Oriental carpets have chosen to clean them in only one way, a process known as Makoor. Makoor is the gentle art of meticulous hand cleaning.

Maloumian Oriental Rugs cleans all of our client's rugs utilizing the Makoor method. With Makoor there are no machines, no harsh soaps or chemicals that could risk ruining your treasured carpet. Each carpet is hand-cleaned by our trained staff and air-dried on a special rack. Your carpet is gently toweled dry by hand instead of going into hot oven driers used by commercial rug cleaners.

We recommended having your rug cleaned every 3-5 years.
If you have a rug in high traffic area you may consider a yearly cleaning. It is very easy to determine if your Oriental rug needs cleaning.
  • Pick up a corner of the rug and drop it to the floor. If a cloud of dust appears the rug is dirty and needs cleaning.

  • Rub the pile of the rug vigorously with your hand in a semi-circular motion. If your fingers or palm is dirty your rug needs cleaning.

  • Look down into the base of the pile at the foundation of the rug. If the warp and weft look dirty then you must have your rug cleaned. When a rug reaches this stage you run the risk of causing damage to the foundation of the rug. The dirt settles into the knotting and foundation and acts like sandpaper wearing away the rug.





  • Oriental Rug Restoration
    Repair and restoration of Oriental rugs demands a far greater level of skills than the original weaving. Maloumian Oriental Rugs provides exceptional advice concerning restoration and our old world craftsmen perform all restoration and repair work.

    Repairs are possible for a wide variety of damages including areas of wear, dry rot, water or fire damage, wine stains, pet stains, tears, holes and worn out fringe.

    The first step in dealing with a damaged Oriental rug is an expert appraisal of the pre-damage worth. We will provide you with the repair cost and the potential value of the rug after restoration. Our assessment allows you to make an informed decision to determine if you will proceed with repairs or to replace the rug.

    If the choice is repair, our restorer hand-weaves the damaged sections, blending them into the original. The goal is to make the carpet structurally secure and renew the original appearance. If your choice is replacement we can help you find a suitable replacement with one of our beautiful rugs in our wholesale warehouse.
