About Us

At the time Oriental Rug Care was purchased by Bill Thornton, it was located in Pompano Beach. That was sufficient but Bill wanted his business to grow and this meant that in order to be productive, prosper and flourish, he would have to move to a better location and a more modern facility. He knew that expanding and growing this business would be more than what he could have ever imagined! We are now currently located in Central Broward. We are located just off of Dixie Hwy and Oakland Park Blvd. in Ft. Lauderdale. We always offer FREE estimates and pickups and our normal turnaround time is usually only three e to five business days.

Not only do we clean rugs of fine textiles, such as Oriental, silk, wool, Chinese, Indian and Turkish rugs, we can also clean any type of custom rug that you challenge us with. We have been in the rug cleaning business for over 32 years. Bill Thornton is also the Vice President of ARCS which is the Association of Rug Care Specialists. The Association of Rug Care Specialists (ARCS) which was formed by the most influential members of the rug care and cleaning community who all had the same goal of advancing the art and science of rug care and educating rug care professionals, raising consumer awareness about quality rug care, and cultivating relationships with leaders in rug care-related industries. Bill or any one of our highly experienced technicians can educate you on key issues about how our rug techniques will be applied to your precious rug.

Being in business for over 32 years immediately says a great deal about our business. For one, we know what we are doing and we know how to satisfy and fulfill your entire rug cleaning needs. From previous customers to our new customers, they keep returning for quality rug care.  The best compliment we could get from a customer is a word of mouth referral. This is just one more reason why we have lasted for so very long in this business. We provide your rugs with an authentic hand washing. This process is used on all types of rugs from Persian, antique, semi-antique, machine made, Chinese, Indian, Turkish and even custom rugs.  After long hours of searching, you may find a “rug cleaning company” that will steam clean your rugs for a very low cost, but keep in mind that you should never, ever steam clean your handmade rugs. You get what you pay for, so if your rug has any sentimental or monetary value, you should steer clear from that option. If you have been spending several hours online searching for a reliable, honest and trustworthy cleaning plant, search no more, you have found your source! With our company, you will receive all the top rug cleaning qualities you are in need of plus much, much more.
