super soft oriental rug

I almost couldn,t believe how soft the rug was after they gently washed it at Castle Cleaning. They really know rugs in there and I am glad we trust ours and our customers rugs to be cleaned and treated with Dupost Teflon. Thanks Phil, Ginny, Casey, and Dude.


Amazing rugs at real savings!

We have looked all over Colorado for rugs and only at Castle Cleaning & Rug Company did we find such a selection of value priced pieces of art to make us happy. They had only top quality rugs from all over the world. Iran, China, Afghanistan, all the best. We were even able to get the rugs we enjoyed treated with Teflon fabric protection and complete with a custom cut rug pad to keep our investment safe.To complete the great day of visiting Berthoud, CO we were able to get all we wanted with excellent service from people who really know rugs.


Investment level textiles

Rugs can be floor covering or art. At Castle, the high end investment level textiles are more then art, they are the best value for the money. It is such a joy to see my beautiful rug everyday and the pleasure it gives me to know what a sound investment I made by purchasing it at Castle Cleaning and Rug Co.These guys make the really good stuff afordable.



Castle has become a destination for both shoppers as well as art aficionados. Phil and Ginny Auserehl, owners of Castle Cleaning and Oriental Rug Co., cordially invite you to visit their showrooms 'We've spent over 30 years collecting and preparing for your visit. So come explore the Orient and we will give you a guided tour" beckons Ginny. WHAT A FUN PLACE TO EXPLORE!


workshops and seminars

Castle's training facility is set up with looms and hand tools from the weaving trade to help teach just how rugs are woven. There are hundreds of miniature rugs for a true hands-on analysis of rug I.D. Castle hosts programs for groups or clubs all FREE to the public.



Castle's showrooms have the most extensive collection of high quality, hand-made rugs in Colo.Tribal and traditional styles all with no haggle ,upfront pricing makes for a pleasurable shopping experience.


drinkable rinse water

The procedure of Dust, Wash, Rinse and Dry is all performed right in Castle's authentic rug washing facility. A true submersion bath is the only way to purge out the contamination completely. It's amazing to get drinkable rinse water results, even on 100 year old pet damaged .rugs. That's what I call a healthy cleaning.


save my grandma's rug please

The authentic reweaving services offer: Repair, Restoration,or Conservation, which are all explained in conjuntion with a free verbal appraisal. This helped me make an informed decision. The proper underlayment is also offered and is custom cut to match each individual rug size.


I do not like high pressure sales people

Castle's philosophy is to assist the customer with product knowledge. By providing basic information and design advice the Auserehl's feel their clients can be secure in the knowledge that they have made the perfect purchase as well as a solid investment decision. "We stive to be your rug consultants, not sales people." says Ginny.


Not your average rug store

This store was a big surprise. First: the building dates to the late 1800's and was a mercantile shop. Second: there are all kinds of neat antique objects and pictures about rug-making and cleaning that decorate the walls. Third: there is a HUGE selection of rugs and flatweaves stacked on two levels to peruse and drool over. Fourth: and my favorite - the owners are full of useful information and are happy to SHARE this with customers like me. I learn when I visit here. I never knew rug buying could be so much fun!



Preinspections are performed by Dude the Dog. After his sniff test is done a black light is used to validate that Dude has properly found all of the pet contamination spots. Pretty cool to get e free CAT-SCAN for your rugs. But wait there's more, then Dude confers with the neighbors black labrador retriever and comes back with a free LAB-REPORT too.


great service!

great service. I recomend them!



Avail yourself the opportunity to explore Castle's restoration and cleaning facilities. The Auserehlian Cleaning System is a world renowned rug washing process that Phil developed. His authentic hand-washing technique utilizes compressed air and a submersion bath for the safe and thorough cleaning of your precious textiles.

Oriental rug purchase and cleaning

I have purchased at least 10 rugs over the course of the past 10 years and have been totally thrilled with my selections as well as the cleaniong services offered at Castle Cleaning and Oriental Rug. Some of my purchases were made as a result of visiting the shop in Berthoud but others were made long distance from my home in Maine. Long distance purchases and cleaning are easily managed with the help of UPS. I think you would be hard pressed to find a more knowledgeable and helpful staff.

Great Job on our Rug

After having a rug damaged in a terrible leak, Castle Cleaning was able to bring it back to a clean and healthy condition. It cleaned better then we expected or that they promised it would. It was also really fun to visit the shop dog "Dude". He must be the softest most spoiled dog I ever met! Thanks Castle Cleaning!


Outstanding selection

Wonderful rug buying experience.



This place is like a museum. Beautiful hand-made artifacts from around the world, all displayed in a browser friendly atmosphere.

Located in Berthoud Colo., which is less than 30 milesfrom most Northern Colo.cities. The upfront pricing allows you to enjoy a pleasurable shopping experience. "REAL RUGS @ REAL SAVINGS" is Phil's motto.
