“As a restoration company, we will never use any rotary devices, always agitating where necessary by hand! As it is important to clean well even where you don’t see, we take plenty of time to thoroughly clean all textiles, never rushing!”


The people of Rug Works are amazing! Donna is courteous and thorough. She even does triage on the phone if you have an emergency stain! I have never regretted spending money after I see the results and quality of service I receive. I’ll never call anyone else to care for my upholstery.

Everyone told me that red wine stains on a light grey sofa would not clean completely. It was a full glass! Even Donna, the company owner, after looking at the photo of the stain, said it might not disappear completely! Rug Works technician did a fantastic job, no spot left, after 4 days no trace. I highly recommend the company.

I highly recommend The Rug Works. The owner, Donna, is clearly passionate about what she does and could not have been more helpful in explaining their services and fees and getting us scheduled quickly. They use safe (non-toxic) cleaning products that really clean well – a deep clean. I was shocked at how clean her team got my upholstered dining room chairs. Her team also cleaned an area rug and my two upholstered couches – everything looks brand new (and I’m really picky). I couldn’t be more pleased!
