Modernistic Cleaning Services Adds New Division and Second Location

Modernistic Rugology division provides in-plant specialty area rug washing

TROY, Mich., December 11, 2009 – Modernistic Cleaning Services recently added a new division called Modernistic Rugology that provides in-plant specialty area rug washing. The new division operates in a 10,000 square foot location at 1271 Rankin Troy, MI 48083. Parent company Modernistic Carpet Cleaning invested over $250K on the latest rug washing technology and equipment that is all manufactured near Jackson, MI. The new division created four full-time jobs, with more expected as business grows.

Modernistic Rugology can easily clean 75 to 100 area rugs per day, with less than a two-week turn around time. The new technology mimics hand washing, the way rugs were washed in the old country in the river. It provides rugs of all sizes with a full immersion, very boutique style wash, with multi-stage inspection and personalized care. Repair services are also available.

The rugs are dried in a very controlled atmosphere using a combination of air movement and dehumidification. As a result, rugs are cleaner and much softer. Pick up and delivery is available. The cost per rug varies on type, between $2 and $5 per square foot.

“This new technology is the best way to wash everyday area rugs or expensive family heirlooms,” says Modernistic spokesperson, Jillian McDonald. “Our new plant has the capability to wash any rug at any size in a controlled environment. We use environmentally safe and biodegradable products, and all the equipment was made right here in Michigan.”

Modernistic is partnering with interior design and flooring stores to act as drop off centers. “With this innovative program, drop off centers would receive referral compensation for each rug washed, greater foot traffic and free advertising by us promoting the locations, ” says McDonald. “It’s a win-win for everyone that way.”

Modernistic Cleaning Services has been providing quality carpet and upholstery cleaning for over 35 years. With a large fleet of trucks and over 70 IICRC trained technicians, Modernistic is the largest independent carpet cleaning business in Michigan. In addition to Metro Detroit, the company has offices in Kalamazoo, Lansing, Grand Rapids and Saginaw. Modernistic Cleaning Services is located at 1460 Rankin in Troy, MI.
