Pick ups and Deliveries are normally scheduled for Wednesdays.
When calling to schedule a pickup, please let us know any concerns you may have such as pet odors (urine, vomit, dander, etc.), insects (moths, carpet beetles), etc. The more information provided the better we can assist you.
Rugs will be brought back to our office and thoroughly examined by ABC personnel with our forensic Pre-Cleaning Inspection. The customer will be called and asked for authorization before any cleaning & repair recommendations can be done. Insect infestations require immediate attention and are treated immediately to prevent further damage and cross contamination.
If, at the time of the pickup, it is determined the condition of a rug is questionable and any work done may exceed its value, a $200 deposit will be required before pickup.
If the customer declines the work after the rug has been brought to our plant for examination, a portion of the deposit will be applied as labor and a disposal charge and and the rest will be returned to the customer. If the customer has the rug serviced, the $200 deposit will be subtracted from the final invoice.
If at any point during the pickup, ABC personnel is unsure whether the rug is worth cleaning, a call will be made to the office.
Rugs picked up on a Wednesday and cleaned in our plant will be scheduled to be returned the next Wednesday. If additional work, such as moth treatments or repairs are needed, the day of delivery schedule may have to be extended.
Pickup and Delivery is free (minimum dollar amounts of work to be done may be required-see below).

Cleaned rugs will be returned rolled or baled.

Oriental and Area Rug Washing at ABC Oriental Rug
Rugs on the wash floor are gently scrubbed before thorough rinsing.
Gentle scrubbing continues. Note the wringer in the background-the next step in the washing process after rinsing.
After thorough rinsing, the rug is sent slowly and carefully through the wringer to take out as much of the water as possible before being hung on racks in the drying room.
Rugs are hung on a rack in the temperature controlled drying room until completely dry.
