Preparing for Your Visit

Our best tips to help you get the most from your visit.

You are welcome to come to our store anytime, no matter the stage of your rug buying journey. No preparations are required! However, for those customers who want to make the most of their time at our shop, please note that the following items will help expedite the process of picking your perfect rug:


Our shop is much larger than your living room, and we have rugs from floor to ceiling, so your eyeball is going to get thrown off. Bring the measurements for your entire room, not just the rug you want to replace, so we can help you find a rug that will work. Also, take note of anything that might be in the way such as a fireplace hearth or an HVAC vent. In some cases, the dimensions of your furnishings (like a dining room table or sofa) are also helpful.


If you are trying to match your rug to anything, be it draperies, furnishings or paint colors, please bring a swatch with you. If you are unable to find a swatch, take some photos and bring them, but also bring a small object from your home that is the same color you’re trying to match. A customer once brought a baby onesie into our shop because it happened to match the wall color exactly. It worked! 


Photos of your home and the room where you wish to put a rug will be quite helpful for us to visualize your floor plan and your style. Photos or Pinterest boards showcasing rooms and rugs that you like will tell us which rugs to show you and which rugs to skip.  

Decision Makers

We don’t expect you to make a final decision on your first day rug shopping. In fact, we allow you to take rugs home on approval so you have a couple days to think about it. However, if you want to make a quick pick, we encourage you to bring any decision makers shopping with you be they your spouse, child, mother-in-law or opinionated neighbor. All are welcome! 

None of the above mentioned items are required for you to shop in our store. However, whatever you are able to bring with you will facilitate your rug selection experience.

From Our Customers

I was super impressed with the service and quality of this rug cleaning service. I called them, they came in two days (they offered to come the next day), gave me an accurate estimate and were polite and careful. Then, when the rug was delivered (also promptly), they arrived and laid out the rug to my liking. The rug looked amazing–we had inherited a dull, not very pretty rug. What came back to us was bright and beautiful without one stain on it. In addition, there was no odor from the cleaning. They were so wonderful to deal with every step of the process. I will never use anyone else!!!

They picked it up and delivered it according to my preference and did a wonderful job cleaning it!! It’s a very old rug so it looks so fresh and bright now!  Also, their pricing beats the competition hands down.

I am so pleased with my experience with Jahann and Sons! I got a same day pick up of my beautiful Afghan rug; the owner himself picked it up for cleaning! In less than a week it was returned to me in amazing shape and a stain that I was concerned about was almost completely removed! I would highly recommend them for rug cleaning services. I’m so happy with my rug; Thank you so much!

Jahann and Sons has great prices and even more fabulous customer service. The owner is an honest and thoughtful man. We were looking for Persian rugs with specific colors and specific geometric patterns (Kahzak). He combed through many many rugs with us, and ultimately sent to his factory not once but twice to have them send several rugs he thought we might like. The first set wasn’t to our liking so he sent for more. He was very patient with us and gave us a great deal for two rugs. They are beautiful hand, woven wool rugs – top quality.
