Cleaning Your Area Rugs

Area rugs can be so hard to keep clean, especially during this time of year when kids and pets are in and out of the house tracking in dirt, mud, water, etc. Often times cleaning every aspect of your floor includes only the carpet, while rugs are overlooked. Once dirt embeds into an area rug, it’s difficult to remove it without the proper tools and procedures. We have the tools and expertise to help your rugs look presentable all year!


How to Clean Your Area Rugs:

Vacuum the rugs on BOTH sides (if reversible). Be sure to do this regularly to make sure dirt doesn’t completely set in and stain the rug. Your rug can be ruined permanently if grit and grime are left in it for too long.


Flip reversible rugs multiple times every year. This can prevent overexposure to sun or any fading the rug may encounter from heavy foot traffic. You don’t want the rug to wear out unevenly. If the rug isn’t reversible, consider rearranging your rugs around the house to prevent potential uneven wear.


  • Brush out anything the vacuum can’t pick up such as hair and other unnatural occurring grime in the rug.


  • Use our professional deep-cleaning service! Let us take care of your rugs and allow you to not worry about following all of those steps listed above. Our experienced staff will make sure your rugs look good as new, and you’ll be glad you used our services!



Keeping Them Clean

Limit how much dirt gets into area rugs in the first place. (DUH!) Declare a shoes-off rule. Frequent vacuuming is the only way to keep grit and grime from becoming embedded. Having a vacuum that’s easy and efficient to use is crucial. Spend the bulk of cleaning time where dirt collects. Be sure to vacuum more in the spots where there’s more traffic such as doorways, hallways, bedrooms and bathrooms. Where area rugs have not been regularly and thoroughly cleaned, be sure to double your vacuuming for three months.


The safest, easiest, and most effective deep-cleaning solution for area rugs is to have them rolled up and taken away for cleaning. Let our experienced staff bring out the color and vibrancy hidden deep within the fabrics. We’ll clean and refresh them with a freshly polished touch. Once again, you’ll admire the richness of your quality floor coverings and how they enhance your home.
