Business History
“In 1881, my great-uncle Carl Hilstrom started the rug cleaning business in Memphis, Tennessee. It was started with a bucket of soap and hand brush. it was all manual until when Carl bought a machine called a star duster, which was a wooden wheel with 6 sides, driven by a motor and leather belt that was eight inches wide and about 40 feet long, and designed to get the dust out of the rugs. Rugs at that time were either Axminster or Oriental rugs, and they were in almost every household in the area. Before Fred Remmers Rug Cleaners, the only way rugs were taken care of was to have them outside on a rack, that people made themselves, and beat with a spring-type hand beater or primitive vacuum. However, even with modern equipment, we still use a lot of the same methods from 100 years ago because they are effective and delicate enough for these rugs.

Amazing Service

They came to my house to pick up the rug right at on time! they moved all furniture and when they brought my rugs back as they had promised all stains, even wine stain, were gone and the rugs look and smell fresh again! They got my rug back exactly the day that they had promised and they put all furniture back the way it used to be
Thank you Fred Remmers for such an amazing job!
