Area Rugs

Our residue free hot water extraction cleaning method is recommended by carpet and area rug manufacturers.  We also provide lower temperature cleaning for some area rugs that require cool water methods depending upon their fiber content. We extract all the dirt, sand, grit and grime from the area rugs using a high powered patented six-inch overlap cleaning process and a residue-free cleaning solution.

This deep down cleaning allows your area rug to stay looking cleaner longer.  We do the disinfecting and deodorizing of area rugs to kill all the germs, the dustmites and leave a new fresh lemon scent.  We do the prespraying, prespotting, and prestain treatment of all your problem stains. We use a color brightener solution to bring all the colors brightly back.  We also defoam the area rug to remove damaging residues if you’ve used a shampoo or dry foam type cleaning in the past.  We will take special care of your area rug fringes and groom them as necessary. WE CLEAN CARPET® has been cleaning area rugs since 1957 and we do have a written guarantee that we do stand behind “We’ll get your area rug clean to your satisfaction or your job is free”.

Our knowledgeable and certified area rug cleaning technicians work with you upon arrival to assure you that all of your special needs are met.  Once our technicians have assessed your needs the process begins.  WE CLEAN CARPET® takes care of everything for you.  There is very little preparation necessary to get ready for your cleaning.  In most cases, there is no need to vacuum before we come.  We vacuum as we are cleaning.  While we do move most furnishings, we will work around pieces that are too heavy to be supported by our blocks and pads or that you prefer that we don’t move.

When your area rug cleaning is finished your technician will give you tips on how to maintain the cleanliness of your area rugs and add you to our growing list of thousands of satisfied customers.

  1. Vacuum area rugs regularly.  Area rugs will stay looking newer longer if vacuumed on a regular basis, usually about once per week.  This prevents build up of sand and dirt that cause unnecessary wear to the fibers.
  2. Have your area rugs professionally cleaned by WE CLEAN CARPET®when they look visibly dirty.   Waiting too long between cleanings can allow some spots to become permanent stains as well as allows wear patterns to become visible and hard to remove.
  3. Don’t use over the counter (grocery store) spot and stain removal products on your area rugs.  Most of these products are soapy and will only attract dirt after application.  In addition, the main ingredients in most of these types of products are optical brighteners that only make spots and stains appear less obvious for a short time.  Eventually the stain will reappear.  Instead, at the time of a spill blot up as much as you can and use a small amount of water and continue to blot.  If your area rugs have been stainguard protected by the manufacturer or by our service the spot will be easily removed with a professional steam by WE CLEAN CARPET®.
