Like carpets and upholstered furniture, area rugs act as air filters for the home, trapping dirt and allergens and preventing those unhealthy elements from circulating to other rooms. But area rugs can only do this properly if maintained and kept clean. Just as an air filter for your home ventilation system needs to be regularly replaced, your carpets, upholstery, and area rugs must be periodically cleaned. Clean Nation Chem-Dry provides high-quality area rug cleaning services, focusing on care and attention to detail and restoring the rugs to their original beauty while removing dirt and non-living allergens.

How to prepare for a Chem-Dry oriental rug cleaning

Step 1: Remove clutter

Our rug cleaners will vacuum before the primary cleaning process, but more clutter can get in the way, like shoes, toys, etc. Not only that, these items can be a tripping hazard. Removing these items from the area rug can help ensure that your rug is cleaned thoroughly, efficiently, and safely.

Step 2: Remove light furniture

Many people place their area rugs underneath coffee tables and other small pieces of furniture. While these focus pieces of furniture can tie a room’s decor together, they can get in the way of cleaning. Our technicians are experts at oriental rug cleaning but are not licensed movers. Set furniture pieces—such as coffee tables, plant stands, and floor lamps—to the side in a nearby room, then move them back after the cleaning once the rug is dry.

Step 3: Note stains and other focus areas

Sometimes, once you’ve noticed a stain or a flaw on your area rug, that can become all you see whenever you look at the rug. We certainly want to ensure that you are completely satisfied once we have completed your area rug cleaning, so if there are any particular areas where you want extra care, take note of them and share that with the cleaner.

Step 4: Make preparations for your pets

A new person in your house, particularly one bringing new equipment and new smells, can potentially agitate your pets, so make sure you have prepared for this. It might be wise to have your pet stay with a friend or relative or even closed into another room or the backyard.

Step 5: Clear a path

It can be easy to forget that a technician needs to get equipment from their vehicle to your front door and from your front door to the rug. Make sure that there is a pathway he can take to clean your oriental rug safely and efficiently. Some technicians use equipment attached to the van, so moving cars out of the way may be a good idea so that their van is as close to the entrance as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to clean an area rug?

The cost of cleaning an area rug depends on the following factors:

  • Whether you clean it yourself or have it professionally cleaned
  • The area in which you live, and the availability of cleaning services
  • The size of the rug
  • The extent of the dirt or damage

Do dry cleaners clean area rugs?

While some dry cleaners may clean an area rug, you are often better suited hiring a professional carpet cleaning service, as this is more in their purview.

How do you clean a rug without a steam cleaner?

To avoid the amount of soap and chemicals often involved with steam cleaning, Chem-Dry employs a process with millions of tiny bubbles, which work together to gently but efficiently remove dirt from the depths of the carpet. This natural method uses 80% less water than traditional steam cleaning.
