Richmond, VA, February 29, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Mercer Rug Cleansing, a recently bankrupt family business that had operated in Richmond for over 120 years has been purchased and is being revived by a family-owned carpet cleaning company based in Alexandria, VA. Hadeed Carpet, a highly successful family-owned and operated business for over 55 years, has purchased and taken over day-to-day control of the landmark Richmond cleaning company.
“We’re proud to add Mercer to the Hadeed family,” said Joe Hadeed, CEO of Hadeed Carpet. “We recognize the many contributions Mercer has made to the Richmond community and economy over the years. We intend to not only continue those traditions, but to build on them.”
Mercer Rug Cleansing and Victory Rug Cleaning (a local company that was under Mercer’s ownership), have continuously served the Greater Richmond community for over 120 years. The two businesses, formerly owned by the late George Mercer, never ceased operating, and have successfully survived 2011 bankruptcy proceedings thanks to Joe Hadeed, CEO of Hadeed Carpet Cleaning, Inc.
“It’s business as usual for Mercer,” explained Mr. Hadeed. “We not only intend to preserve all the jobs at Mercer, but hope to create new ones as our business expands.”
In keeping with the traditions of Hadeed Carpet Cleaning, Inc. in Alexandria, new services will be offered by Mercer. Hadeed brings its time honored method of deep cleaning each rug by hand. Hadeed will combine the Mercer workforce with their other talented artisans, all working to one end- restoring your treasures to their original brilliance.
Mercer, through Hadeed, will repair and restore your fine Persian, Oriental, hand-woven, and area rugs, reweaving, restoring color, even recreating bare spots and replacing fine fringe. In another new service, free pickup and delivery will now be available for the Richmond area.
Mercer-Hadeed invites everyone in the community to celebrate the revitalization of a Richmond institution. For further information, call Agatha Wolkowicz at (571) 255-7054, or visit MercerRugCleaning.com.
