how we clean area rugs

We begin with a pre-inspection of your rug for spots, stains, construction and dyes.

Your rug is dusted using high-tech equipment to remove dry, abrasive soils from your rug.

Your rug is pre-treated with cleaning solution to focus on any spots or stains.

Your rug is given a gentle shampooing to remove all soils and stains. This process uses wool-safe detergent and soft brushes to protect your cherished rug.

Your rug then soaks in our state-of-the-art Turkish cold water rug bath.

The fringes of your rug are then hand-cleaned by our rug experts using special tools and techniques.

Your rug then goes through a final rinsing process to remove all cleaning products and soils.

Temperature and air circulation are regulated continuously to ensure proper drying.

Your rug’s pile and fringes are hand finished and groomed, then carefully inspected by a rug care professional.

Within 5-7 days, a technician will bring your rug back to you free of charge. Or you can opt to pick up your rug at one of our eight locations.

frequently
asked questions

The average rug with normal wear should be cleaned every one to three years, depending on the color of the rug and the amount of traffic it gets. If you have pets, small children or a lot of foot traffic, an annual cleaning may be a good idea.

Here are some simple tests to determine if your rug needs to be professionally cleaned:

Rub your palm on the rug for a couple seconds. If it becomes visibly dirty, it’s time for a cleaning.

Kneel down and smell the rug. If it smells foul, it’s time for a cleaning.

Lift a corner of the rug and shake it hard. If you can see a dust cloud, it’s definitely time for a cleaning.

Fold back a corner of the rug, away from the pile, to expose the base of the fibers. If there is dirt embedded deep in the pile, it’s time for a cleaning.

This is a personal decision that you will have to make. Many of our customers ask themselves this question, weighing their emotional attachment, the cost of cleaning it and the cost of replacing it. In some cases, an entire room is designed around the rug. We offer free estimates and are happy to provide you with guidance as you make a decision.

The industrial truck-mounted machines that all reputable carpet cleaning companies use hot steam and powerful vacuuming. Those machines penetrate deep into the carpet fibers to remove much more dirt than a regular vacuum.

Many people choose to clean their carpets themselves with a rented carpet cleaner. These low-end steam cleaners will save you money, but leave too much moisture behind that can lead to mold and unpleasant odors in the long-term.

Our normal cleaning process for rugs takes between seven and 10 days. Repairs and extra cleaning take more time. For example, pet urine and odor removal will take additional time.

Our technicians will gladly move most furniture pieces when they pick up your rug. Particularly heavy items (pool tables, etc.) should be moved prior to our arrival. After your rug is cleaned, our technician will place the rug back in your home and replace the furniture free of charge.

If you have your rug on a hard surface, we recommend that you place a pad under it. A rug pad will extend the life of your rug and make it more comfortable to walk on, as well as prevent it from sliding on the floor.
