Lily's Correct Carpet & Oriental Rug Cleaning

Our Story

Lily and Jonathan started Lily’s Correct Carpet & Oriental Rug Cleaning in 2003 as Boston’s first “green” carpet and furniture cleaners after having trouble locating a true “green” carpet cleaner that served Boston. Lily was completing her Master’s thesis at Tufts University on alternatives to the main chemical used in carpet cleaning and drycleaning. She wanted to put this theory into practice. Jonathan learned his rug hand washing and brush techniques from a charismatic group of men from Italy back in 1986 in the homes around Harvard Square. He went on to become Boston’s Guest Ambassador/Concierge of the year in 1995, but returned to carpet cleaning to develop a green process that provided a safe option for his children playing on carpet all day. The result is Lily’s Correct Carpet & Oriental Rug Cleaning.

Our 'Green' Approach

The “green” or non toxic part of our business is very important to us. We started out in 2003 not mentioning “green” as it was a dirty word that most people equated with bad performance and high cost. The “greenness” of products is continuously improving along with the products Lily’s uses to clean. By proving that non toxic cleaners work our clients are educated and encouraged to try other “greener”safer products. That is the small part we are playing in a much larger sustainability journey.
