Master Rug Cleaner

The process of cleaning and restoring fine oriental and area rugs requires a level of expertise and knowledge that takes years to achieve. Different types of rugs require different cleaning methods, so it is vital that your rug cleaner be able to match the correct cleaning procedure with each type of rug. This knowledge is at the core of the Master Rug Cleaner Program.

Our deepest gratitude to Phil Ausherlian, The Ausherlian Rug Cleaning School, Berthaudd, Colorado, where we got our start.

After several years of hands on training we continued our training with Ellen Amirkhan & Aaron Groseclose at their world renowned Master Rug Cleaner Program, Dallas, Texas.

We earned our Master Rug Cleaning Certificationin 2011. As we continue to broaden our knowledge base and refine the skills of the craft we look for other mentors to help us give our customers more.
