Area & Oriental Rug Cleaning by Chem-Dry

It’s safe to say that area rugs typically receive a lot of traffic. Rugs are often put down in high traffic areas to decorate the space and even protect the flooring, but who is going to protect the rugs? Regular area rug cleaning is a must to promote their performance and preserve their appearance.

Just like carpet and upholstery, area rugs act like giant air filters in your home. They trap dirt and allergens, keeping them out of the air you breathe. However, rugs are only able to do this if they are properly maintained and kept clean. 

While regular vacuuming is important, it isn’t going to do the whole job. Routine professional area rug cleaning is key to keeping your rugs looking and feeling their best.

When it comes to area and oriental rug cleaning, you can trust the professionals at Chem-Dry. Our technicians are trained to clean all types of rugs, from common area rugs to expensive and delicate Oriental or Persian rugs. 

Our Area and Oriental Rug Cleaning Process

At Chem-Dry, we use specialized tools and equipment designed for the specific type of rug you have, whether it is synthetic, wool, cotton, silk, or another type. Due to the wide variety in construction materials and styles of area rugs, our certified, trained specialists will provide an in-home analysis of your rug. 

This analysis will help to determine the safest, most effective cleaning process for each individual rug you would like cleaned. Our participating Premium Rug Cleaners may recommend an off-site rug bath service for some rugs. 

Our gentle, yet deep rug cleaning process removes dirt and non-living allergens, such as pet dander and dust mite matter, from your rugs while preserving the colors within the fibers, leaving them vibrant and fresh. Our trained technicians will also inspect your area rugs for any problem areas, stains, or pet messes that may need special attention. 

Trust your area and oriental rugs to the professionals at Chem-Dry. Let our trained, certified specialists bring them back to their original beauty, while also leaving your home cleaner and healthier for you and your family.
