The Area Rug Cleaning Process

Handling and moving large, heavy rugs – especially ones that need to be cleaned – isn’t an easy task! That’s why NYCleaners comes to your home to pick up area rugs of any size to perform cleaning services back at our facility where we have plenty of space, all the equipment and cleaners necessary, and excellent ventilation.

  • To clean an area rug, professional cleaners need some basic information before we begin.

We’ll examine the rug to determine the rug’s material, whether it is hand or machine woven, and if there are any stains that need to be treated before we clean the rug.

  • Once we have gathered the information we need, our team does prep work that will ensure the best possible rug restoration results.

We remove debris by vacuuming or hand-dusting the rug, depending on its age and fabric type. We also do spot cleaning before total area rug cleaning to make sure the entire rug receives the same cleaning treatment.

  • The next step is the thing we’re known best for – area rug cleaning. Depending on several factors – size, material, and stains, just to name a few – we begin the cleaning process.

This usually involves hot water extraction, but if dry chemical cleaning (a misleading name since the process does use a small amount of water) or more aggressive shampooing is needed, we will apply the appropriate cleaning method in each case for the best rug restoration you can expect.

  • A major part of area rug cleaning that doesn’t get nearly enough attention is drying.

Once the rug has been thoroughly rinsed, it needs to dry completely so that mold and mildew don’t find a breeding ground. Excess water can also cause your rug to have a soured smell that is hard to remove. Do-it-yourself rug cleaners often make the mistake of putting their rug back in place slightly damp. This can ruin floors and cause irreparable damage to the rug.

We Clean Area Rugs of Any Size

No matter what size rug you have, it should be professionally cleaned to maintain its value. The work that goes in to handling the rug before and after cleaning is just as important as the cleaning process itself, especially when you are dealing with rugs that are 8×10 or larger.

This is one of the most common area rug sizes because it fits well in most living rooms, allowing for at least a foot of exposed floor around the rug. Rugs that are 8×10 are slightly easier to handle because of their size, but we treat them with the same care as larger rugs!

In mid-sized living and bedrooms, 9×12 area rugs are popular. This size rug definitely needs professional attention, to maintain its appearance. With a variety of cleaning methods such as dry cleaning, steam cleaning (also known as hot water extraction), and shampooing, NYCleaners can give it the care it needs.

Large area rugs, 10×14 and larger, should always be handled with extreme skill. These rugs can be very valuable and are almost always a focal point of the room. Before you try to DIY clean your 10×14 area rug, call a professional to hear about the professional rug cleaning options for area rugs of this size.
