Dedicated to the maintenance of your authentic Oriental rugs, Anabel's applies its gentle, natural, and chemical-free talents to your home's artisanal floor frocks. Anabel's professional cleaning process hand-washes rugs with soft shampoos, submerging the entire rug in water and then sun-drying your wares to eliminate any odors or unsightly tan lines. Anabel's sage staff of fabric aficionados will tackle all types of oriental rugs, including Persian, wool, chinchilla whiskers, and Tibetan, from petite 4'x6' rugs ($60) to antique 12'x15' treasure tarps ($450). Without regular care and attention, each step upon a dirty carpet can prematurely shorten your rug's life, as well as re-aggravate its dormant dust-bunny demon.
