These guys are way out of Pottery Barn territory—only rugs with a pedigree should come here for cleaning—but for Aubussons, Bessarabians, and modern luxury items like Stark carpets, they’re the way to go. Four generations since 1886 have been developing expertise—and some of the rugs they handle are twice as old as the business. Sturdier items are cleaned the traditional way, with running water; delicate museum-quality specimens are painstakingly worked over topically. A nine-by-twelve-foot carpet would cost around $400 to $500 to clean, plus $150 for pickup and delivery. A fine Oriental that needs hand-washing typically runs about twice that.
