Why should I have my area rugs professionally cleaned?

As trained professionals, we understand that every rug cleaning situation is different.  Our technicians begin by inspecting the rug and identify cleaning needs and potential for possible bleeding in the dye lots.  Doing so helps us to determine the appropriate cleaning method that will be the most effective for your rugs specific needs. Whether the rug has been passed down from generations or was a rug picked up at a local store, we take the best care of your rug.

How long does the cleaning process take?

If your rug is being cleaned on site, it will depend on the size of the rug.  Typically a thorough cleaning can be cleaned in a half hour.  If you choose to bring your rug here or have a natural fiber rug, we will have your rug cleaned in 1-2 weeks.

What is the difference between a synthetic fiber and natural fiber rug?

Synthetic Fiber:

  • Synthetic fibers are completely man made
  • Fiber length is controlled by man
  • Easy to change in fiber structure
  • Synthetic fibers are less in value
  • More durable than natural fibers

Natural Fiber:

  • All of the natural fibers come from nature
  • Length of fiber is nature given
  • It is not possible to change in fiber structure

What determines the price of my area rug cleaning?

When determining the price to clean your area rug cleaning, three factors come into play.  Size, fiber type, and any treatments you want applied.

  • Size.  We use your rugs dimensions to figure out the square footage of your rug.
  • Fiber Type.  Whether your rug is made of natural fibers or synthetic fibers, is a question we’ll ask not only to determine price but also the appropriate cleaning method.
  • Treatments.  If you are interested in having a pet treatment or ScotchGuard applied to your rug, this will have an effect on price and needs to be considered when giving an estimate.
