Area Rug Cleaning

Introduction to Area Rugs: Area rugs are both functional and decorative, offering a versatile option unlike wall-to-wall carpeting. They can dramatically enhance the aesthetic and comfort of any room with their varied sizes, shapes, and materials, appealing to diverse tastes and interior designs.

Advantages of Area Rugs

  • Aesthetic Appeal: They can serve as the room's focal point, unifying various decor elements while adding texture and color.

  • Comfort and Warmth: Area rugs provide a cozy surface underfoot, inviting warmth into the space, particularly in cooler climates, and can contribute to energy savings through added insulation.

  • Noise Reduction: Their sound-dampening properties aid in creating a quieter, more peaceful environment.

  • Floor Protection: Rugs protect floors from scratches, stains, and wear, especially in high-traffic zones or beneath heavy furniture.

Choosing the Right Area Rug

  • Size and Placement: Selecting the correct rug size is crucial for the intended area, such as ensuring a living room rug fits under the furniture's front legs or extends beyond dining chairs when pulled out.

  • Style and Design: The rug's style should complement the existing room decor, with options spanning traditional, contemporary, casual, and transitional designs.

  • Material: From durable, easy-to-dye wool to soft, machine-washable cotton and stain-resistant synthetics like nylon and polyester, materials vary to suit different settings and usage needs.

Fun Facts

Area rugs, like the renowned Persian rug, have served as both practical items and art forms for centuries, showcasing intricate designs and craftsmanship from the ancient regions of Iran.


Maintaining an area rug through regular vacuuming, immediate stain removal, and professional cleaning every 3 years to ensure its longevity. Utilizing a rug pad can also prevent slips, add cushioning, and protect the underlying floor.

To cap off our comprehensive cleaning service, we employ a distinctive drying method that merges the benefits of natural sunlight with controlled indoor conditions. This approach not only ensures optimal drying but also significantly enhances the color vibrancy of your rug. The exposure to natural sunlight is particularly beneficial as it:

  • Gently brightens colors, making them appear more vivid and lively without the risk of damage that can come from harsh chemicals or excessive heat.

  • Provides effective and even drying, crucial for preventing the development of mold, mildew, or unpleasant odors.

  • Helps preserve the integrity of the rug’s weave, maintaining the softness of the fibers and their strength over time.

  • Is an eco-friendly choice, utilizing the sun's natural energy to reduce reliance on electric dryers, thereby saving energy and minimizing our carbon footprint.

Furthermore, we believe in maintaining transparency and building trust with our customers throughout the cleaning process. To this end, we provide updates with pictures of your rug during both the cleaning and drying phases. This allows you to see the care and attention your rug receives at every step, ensuring you're as involved in the restoration of your cherished item as we are.
