Area Rug Care

Area rug cleaning

At All Clean ChemDry in Winchester, Virginia, we’ve seen thousands of rugs, and we know that cleaning them is not always as simple as a quick once-over with a vacuum cleaner. That’s why we’ve come up with this handy list of tips for keeping the rugs in your home as spotless as possible.

Washing Rugs

If your rug is small and the label says “machine washable”, shake the rug outside first and then put it in the washing machine at the recommended temperature. Use warm water (90 to 105 degrees) and a mild detergent. Tumble your rug dry at the lowest heat setting.

Beating Larger Rugs

If your larger rug is easy to pick up, shake it outside first; then put it over a clothesline and beat it. Next, take the rug inside and vacuum it. If the label says dry clean only, then roll it up and take it to a professional rug cleaner. Save time and aggravation by calling first to see if the cleaner does rug cleaning, many do not. Trust your rugs of all types with All Clean ChemDry technicians who have been trained as an Area Rug Expert for off-site cleaning.

Vacuuming Area Rugs

Area rugs with fringe require special technique. Use gentle suction and start from the center of the carpet, vacuuming toward the fringe and being careful not to catch the strands in the beater bar. Lift the carpet edge to vacuum beneath the fringe.

Caring for Oriental, Turkish or Persian rugs

Clean imported rugs according to your carpet manufacturer’s specifications or bring in a professional cleaning service. Be gentle with fringe. For heirloom-type rugs, you need professionals. Call All Clean ChemDry to learn more about Expert Area Rug cleaning services.
