Area Rug Cleaning

Why Is It Important to Use Area Rug Cleaning Services Regularly?

Homeowners pay many hundreds, even many thousands of dollars to purchase unique Oriental or Persian rugs. Like all rugs and carpets, these valuable floor coverings collect dirt, dust, organisms and are spilled on.

A study from Eureka Vacuum found that a 2' x 9' area rug can hold nearly 90 lbs of dirt before discolouration is plainly visible!

Walking on the rug helps embed all kinds of dirt, mud, pet and human dander (skin), food particles, microscopic bugs and pests and more.

Do We Clean The Rug in Your Home?

In-Plant Rug Cleaning is recommended for Oriental Rugs and loose woven area rugs. Area Rugs range from economical to some of the most valuable products in our houses. They can be a basic doormat or corridor runner to a hand-made, one-of-a-kind Persian carpet.

They should not be cleaned in place like wall to wall carpet. Cleaning With Love looks after the finest and basic rugs from worldwide; we clean up area, wool, silks, oriental, tribal, and Persian as well as regular rugs. We will pick your rug up and bring it to our special cleaning plant where it will receive our really extensive Cleaning System to get maximum soil and spot elimination. Having your carpet cleaned in our plant allows us to give it several treatments for a more extensive cleaning, managed drying, and the use of various tools that are not readily available at your home.

A lot of carpet cleaners want to clean your area rugs in your home, however it is constantly best to have your rugs professionally cleaned at a carpet cleaning plant/shop. Having a rug cleaned in your house may be asking for problems: the carpet may alter or diminish as it dries, pro-longed dry time can trigger dyes to bleed or run together, or possible damage to your wood or laminate flooring by the excess moisture.

Dry Soil Removal

Woven rugs, particularly hand-knotted rugs, are designed to hide dry soil. As mentioned above, the Eureka company did a research study and discovered that a 9 x 12 rug could hide 87+ pounds of dirt! WOW! We use a range of techniques to "dust" the rugs from the front and back. A tool called a carpet duster, unique vacuum accessories, and many other approaches are used. This is the most crucial action in cleaning any textile.


Depending upon fibre content and soiling type, the carpet will be pre-treated to emulsify the soils.

Spot and Fringe Preparation

Any potentially challenging areas will be pre-treated uniquely to increase likelihood of removal. The fringe is also pre-treated for optimum soil removal.


The majority of rugs are cleaned with an Oriental Rug Shampoo that is especially developed to get optimal cleaning while protecting delicate natural fibres.

Rinse or Wash

Depending upon the kind of rug, it will be washed with extraction devices or washed in a wash pit created especially for Oriental Rugs.

Speed Dry

Once the soil is rinsed away, the carpet is dried flat or hung to dry in a regulated environment. Correct drying is essential to avoid abnormal shrinkage.

Final Finishing

When the carpet is dry, it is combed and completed with soft groomers for specialized rugs.

Post Inspection and Delivery

Our cleaning expert will give the carpet a final evaluation and release it for pick-up or delivery. Your rug will be covered in brown craft paper to secure it from dust and environmental soils up until it is gotten or delivered. Upon delivery, we will lay the carpet for you.

The Cleaning Details

Vacuuming. Your carpet is vacuumed many times while in our care; it is the first and frequently the last thing we do to your carpet. Vacuuming gets rid of particulates like sand and grit that wear down the fibres.

Warm water Extraction Cleaning. Most rugs can be safely cleaned using warm water extraction, or "steam" cleaning approaches. A cleaning service that is safe for your carpet's fibre is used to loosen soil, and then drawn out using hot water.

All rugs are hung to dry in our shop. The environment is closely managed using dehumidifiers and fans to provide the optimum drying conditions. A carpet that is dried rapidly will seldom have issues with colour stretching/skewing or bleeding.
