Best Rug Cleaning Service In North Shoal Creek, TX

It’s important to know with whom you are dealing.

Businesses, after all, are a collection of people that provide services to other people.

Often the more folks that are part of a company, the less attention is focused on the people that keep the company in business, the clients. This is why I’ve kept my business small enough to maintain personal relationships. I don’t want you to be crossing your fingers hoping that you will “get the good crew” this time. You will see me when I’m picking up your area rugs in Austin for cleaning. You’ll see me when your freshly washed rugs are returned to you. I’m the one who will personally be making sure every inch of your rug is safely, completely washed. I don’t just sit behind my desk and answer the phone while my team does all the work. After all, I’m the one with the certifications and designations. My experience is of no benefit to you if I’m not using it to actually wash your rugs.

“Tim is super as are his services. We have had him clean our rugs on more than one occasion as we have pets who have accidents. He leaves the rugs in wonderful condition and we’ve been so pleased. His service is impeccable as are his assistants who are careful moving items. We cannot say enough good things about Aegis, Tim, and his crew. Highly recommend for professionalism and super service. Thank you for keeping our rugs wonderful!”

Mark R.

“Life saver, rug washer…..Tim and the folks at Aegis Fine Rugs handle the trickiest stains. We had given up hope that our rug could be salvaged….called Aegis and they got red spray paint (teenagers…go figure) out of our rugs. Have also recommended them to luxury real estate clients who need their cherished rugs cleaned because of a teenager….or pet. If you love your rugs (and your pets and kids)….call these guys.”

Jennifer P.

“Highly recommend! Tim and his crew were meticulous in their treatment of our rugs and our home during pick up and delivery. And, of course, our rugs were beautifully cleaned. In addition to taking care of the rugs, they were kind enough to take some heavy boxes that had just been delivered upstairs for us….all that, and Tim even brought treats for our dog! If you need rugs cleaned, this is definitely the company you want to call!”

Kathy H.

“Tim cleaned seven rugs for us and his work is exemplary. First, he visited our home and shared his extensive knowledge. He analyzed each rug and explained his cleaning process. He also recommended special rug pads that protect the rugs and our wood and concrete floors. Never have our rugs been so clean of cat stains and fur. And, when our kitties have accidents, the stains are easy to clean. Tim is customer-oriented. He stays in touch and he loves his work. I recommend Tim and Aegis to anyone who values quality.”

Laurine M.

“Overall, Tim with Aegis is honest and genuine. Even though he didn’t clean the rug, I know that he has the customers best interests at heart and wants to do the best job possible.”

Barrett D.

“You can’t go wrong with Tim. More small businesses should take a page from his book of professionalism and courtesy.”

Harlan B.

“We were lovingly given several beautiful wool rugs as part of my mother’s estate so finding an expert cleaner was high on our list. We found Aegis on line and by “wrap.” Tim arrived to pick the rugs up and spent time with us sharing his extensive knowledge of rugs and these rugs in particular, (including how and when they were made, the type of wools used, as well as their approximate value). We were thrilled! Give him a call.”

Our Fine Rug Cleaning Process

Aegis is Austin’s only premium, full service rug washing company. We are as close as your front door. You don’t ever have to “lug your rug” when doing business with us. Making you load your rugs into your car or truck to bring them to us is not even an option. We will set up a convenient appointment to come pick up your rugs, at no extra charge.
 
On our appointment day, I will meet you personally to discuss your rugs. I’ll ask you some questions about them, how they are used, and when they were last cleaned. I will review my notes with you, measure the sizes of the rugs, and discuss delivery times; barring repairs, the process usually takes 7-10 business days from pick up to delivery.
 
I’ll then take your rugs to my workshop where I will thoroughly remove the dry foreign material from your rugs. Rugs die from the inside out.
 
Therefore, it is necessary to remove all the dry contaminants prior to starting the washing process. This is one of the reasons why rugs cannot be properly cleaned in your home. Removing dry contaminants is accomplished with a combination of compressed air and harmonic vibration on a “screen” that lets all of the newly dislodged contaminants, that vacuuming can’t remove, fall harmlessly to the floor. Then an industrial vacuum and air scrubber can quickly contain all of that airborne debris. A rug that “looks” clean can still hold dozens of pounds of dry soil, dander, dead skin, dust mites, and grit. These airborne and gravity distributed contaminates are what prematurely wear out your rug, and your nose if you have allergies.
 
I then test various components of your rug. Color stability, pile direction, construction, and materials to custom blend the perfect environmentally friendly cleansing “cocktail” for your individual rug. Since I am not a franchise owner, I don’t have to use harsh “one size fits all” cleaning products. My 35 plus years of experience and my Master Textile and Rug Certifications are your assurance that your Austin oriental rug is going to be safely and completely washed. I have washed thousands of rugs over the years, this part of the fine rug cleaning process is far too important to trust to an employee. I’m very hands on. It’s my reputation here. I’m the only owner in town that personally washes each and every rug. Again. It’s my reputation. I don’t risk it to anyone else.
 
Now that I have a plan, I’ll wash each rug individually. I will not put your rugs in with someone else’s rugs, as it may cross contaminate them. The safest solution is individual rug cleaning. I do not use automated rug cleaning machines that quickly spray soapy water on the rugs as they run down the conveyor belt. I do not believe that type of cleaning is thorough enough—it’s barely cleaning the rug’s surface, and the machines can potentially tear the rugs.
 
Since your fine rugs are not wall to wall carpet, I don’t treat them as such. Therefore, I don’t steam clean your rugs. It is much cheaper and faster, which is why so many lower priced companies do that, but it damages the fibers and dyes of fine rugs.
 
After the initial rug washing is completed with the customized solutions, your rugs will be gently rinsed and all of the loosened and dissolved soils that have been dislodged will carried away in clear, cool, soft water. This process is usually repeated at least twice and on severely soiled rugs, can be done as many as four times. We wash rugs with people and pet friendly rug cleaning solutions. When the soil has been safely removed and rinsed away, it’s time to dry your rug.
 
Your rugs will be safely dried, never hung. Every rug is dried horizontally on a cushion of air in a room with very low humidity, thanks to industrial dehumidification equipment. Huge volumes of dry air rush under the foundation of, and across the face of the freshly cleaned rug. I never hang them to dry. I never spin them to dry. I never wring them out to dry. I have seen each of those processes damage rugs, so I will not do that to your rugs just to save some money, time, or space.
 
When your rug is completely dry, I apply fiber protector, and other treatments depending upon your wishes. Again, I do not charge extra for these treatments.
 
If you’ve decided to purchase hypoallergenic underlayment for your rug, I’ll custom cut it to perfectly fit your rug. If your rug needed some repair or fringe replacement or removal this will now be completed. Voila—our fine rug cleaning process is complete! I will call you to confirm the delivery of your rug date and time, and I will return your rug to you, your new home, or to your storage facility.
 
I want you to be happy with every aspect of my service.
