Caravan Rugs has been operating in the Triangle since 1988, when Wayne Yarborough founded the company to both sell and restore floor coverings. Wayne’s vision was for a comprehensive rug and carpet company with a special focus on high quality, hand-woven products, such as oriental rugs. Eventually, Caravan Rugs decided to narrow its focus, and now focuses exclusively on cleaning and restoration.
Jason Ide, one of Wayne Yarborough’s cleaning technicians, took over leadership of the business in 2014 and is now the president and CEO. Jason brings over 15 years of carpet cleaning experience with him. Much of this was gained while working at Caravan Rugs under Wayne Yarborough, but Jason also owned his own carpet cleaning business, as well. In addition to his experience as a business owner and as a long-time carpet cleaner, Jason Ide earned a degree from UNC-Wilmington.
Under Jason’s leadership, the company has become a regional leader in the cleaning and restoration of floor coverings. In addition to cleaning rugs, Caravan Rugs also works on upholstery, wall-to-wall carpeting, tile, and grout. The company has a lot of experience cleaning high-end, hand-made rugs, but they also clean more mass-produced factory products, as well. Restoration of oriental rugs or other delicate pieces is a particular focus of Caravan Rugs.
Jason and manager Khaled Ramadan take precise care with each job they are trusted with. Caravan Rugs serves the design community, high-end rug dealers, architects, homeowners, and businesses for all their rug and carpet cleaning and restoring needs. Jason and Khaled have perfected a gentle method of cleaning that protects and preserves the item while it is being cleaned. Caravan Rugs has state-of-the-art machinery from trips as far away as Turkey, that guarantee the greatest care is taken for each specific type of floor covering.
