Our Heritage

Experienced Rug Cleaning Company in Boston MA

Krikor "Koko" Boodakian, was born to Armenian parents in Kilis, Turkey, around 1891. At just 14 years old he escaped from the Turkish army and fled to Egypt in an effort to avoid the Armenian genocide. There he learned to restore rugs and clocks and quickly developed a love for antiques and fine machinery. During his time in Egypt, he grew a desire to travel to America to practice the art of rug restoration.

Just a few years later Koko packed his bags and headed for the United States. He arrived in Waterbury, Connecticut where he joined the U.S. Army and fought in the First World War. Shortly after his discharge, Koko moved to Boston where he was reunited with his Turkish sweetheart, Hripsime. In 1920 the couple wed and had three beautiful baby boys named Levon, Harry, and Michael.

In 1927 the Boodakian family moved to Winchester, Massachusetts where Koko started a rug cleaning business out of their garage. It was then that Koko taught his three sons an appreciation for the artistry of oriental rugs, his demand for quality workmanship, and his pride in customer satisfaction. In 1938 Koko and his family bought a shop on Lochwan Street which was their original cleaning plant and used until last year. In 1955 they opened their Main Street location, where they still are today, to incorporate sales into the cleaning.

Koko’s Philosophy

After seeking asylum due to the discrimination of his native country, Koko knew how it felt to not be held to an equal standard; which is why when Koko built his workplace culture on the belief of always treating others as you would like to be treated. Over the years we have worked hard to maintain this ideology, so it is no surprise that some of our best reviews are about the integrity of our work and the quality of our service.
