Dombourian Oriental Rugs has bought, sold, cleaned, and repaired decorative floor coverings for more than a century. The showroom displays everything from antique Persian specimens from the 1890s and new oriental rugs made of angora wool to handmade 2'x3' rugs imported from India ($170–$225) and 3'x5' handwoven pieces ($225–$325). Professional rug cleaning, available for customer drop-off ($2.50/sq. ft.) or with pickup and delivery service ($3/sq. ft.), evicts dirt, dander, and inexplicable crop circles from floor décor. The shop's expert scrubbers employ a time-honored process, hand-washing rugs with soap and water before hanging them for a thorough air dry, which preserves the color and integrity. Dombourian also sells rug pads, which help curb potentially painful pratfalls and keep absconder carpets from escaping with drop-off ($2/sq. ft.) or pickup and delivery service ($3/sq. ft.).
