Area Rug Cleaning

Like well-placed wall decor or fine paintings, area rugs contribute to the overall character and complete the furnishing of a well-decorated room. Unlike wall decor, however, area rugs usually receive a fair amount of traffic. Rugs like this are often put down in high-traffic areas to decorate, liven up, and even protect these living spaces. But how do we keep our rugs looking great?

Similar to carpets and upholstered furniture, area rugs act as air filters for the home, trapping dirt and allergens and preventing those unhealthy elements from circulating to other rooms. But area rugs are only able to do this properly if they are maintained and kept clean. Just as an air filter for your home ventilation system needs to be regularly replaced, your carpets, upholstery, and area rugs need to be regularly cleaned.

The professionals at Greylock Chem-Dry provide high quality area rug cleaning services, focusing on care and attention to detail, that restore the rugs to their original beauty while removing dirt and non-living allergens.

What Hiring an Expert Means to You

Chem-Dry professionals are trained to clean all types of rugs, from common area rugs to expensive and delicate Oriental or Persian rugs. For our area rug cleaning services, we use specialized tools and equipment designed for whatever kind of rug you have, whether that is synthetic, wool, cotton, silk, or one of many other types.

Our effective, yet gentle area rug cleaning and drying process preserves the dye within the fibers of your rug, leaving the colors in your rug vibrant and fresh. It wouldn’t make sense to clean your carpet or area rug only to have it come out in the end looking even worse than when you started. We do everything we can to make sure your area rug looks beautiful, vibrant, and refreshed at the end of the cleaning process.

Some cleaning products used by other services leave behind residues after the cleaning is over, which can attract more dirt and dust and negate the benefits of the cleaning. Our cleaning products don’t leave behind any sticky, dirt-attracting residues, which means that your area rugs stay cleaner longer – providing a cleaner, safer, and healthier home environment for your kids and pets. Due to the wide variety of construction materials and styles of area rugs, we’ll be happy to provide an in-home analysis for any rugs you’d like cleaned and prepare a no-obligation quote. Our participating Premium Rug Cleaners are specially trained and may recommend an off-site rug bath service.

Trust your finest rugs to Greylock Chem-Dry professionals and let our trained, certified specialists bring the patterns and colors of your area rugs back while also leaving your home cleaner and healthier.

How to prepare for a Chem-Dry Oriental Rug Cleaning

Step 1: Remove Clutter

Our Chem-Dry area rug cleaners will vacuum before the main cleaning process, but larger clutter like shoes, toys, and the like can get in the way. Not only that, these items can be a tripping hazard. By removing these items from the area rug, you can help ensure that your rug is cleaned thoroughly, efficiently, and safely.

Step 2: Remove Light Furniture

Many people place their area rugs underneath coffee tables and other small pieces of furniture.  While these focus pieces of furniture can do wonders to tie a room’s decor together, they can get in the way of cleaning. Our technicians are experts at oriental rug cleaning, but they are not licensed movers. Set furniture pieces—such as coffee tables, plant stands, and floor lamps—to the side in a nearby room, then move them back after the cleaning, once the rug is dry.

Step 3: Note Stains or Other Focus Areas

Sometimes, once you’ve noticed a stain or a flaw on your area rug, that can become all you see whenever you look at the rug. We certainly want to make sure that you are completely satisfied once we have completed your area rug cleaning, so if there are any particular areas where you want extra care, take note of them and share that with the cleaner.

Step 4: Make Preparations For Pets

A new person in your house, particularly one bringing new equipment and new smells with them, can potentially agitate your pets, so make sure that you have prepared for this. It might be wise to have your pet stay with a friend or relative, or even closed into another room or the backyard.

Step 5: Clear a Path

It can be easy to forget that a technician needs to get himself and his equipment from his vehicle to your front door and from your front door to the rug. Make sure that there is a pathway he can take to clean your oriental rug safely and efficiently. Some technicians use equipment that is attached to the van, so it may be a good idea to move cars out of the way so that his van is as close to the entrance as possible.

We have used Greylock Chem-Dry for years and couldn’t be happier. They are personable, professional, and do a fantastic job every time. Chem-Dry is a national brand with a great reputation for their carpet cleaning system, but not all franchises are equal. Greylock Chem-Dry is obviously committed to being a top-tier provider, as they are often the first in the Great Barrington market to adopt the latest equipment and techniques.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to clean an area rug?

The cost of cleaning an area rug depends on the following factors:

  • Whether you clean it yourself or have it professionally cleaned
  • The area in which you live, and the availability of cleaning services
  • The size of the rug
  • The extent of the dirt or damage

Do dry cleaners clean area rugs?

While some dry cleaners may clean an area rug, you are often better suited hiring a professional carpet cleaning service, as this is more in their purview.

How do you clean a rug without a steam cleaner?

To avoid the amount of soap and chemicals often involved with steam cleaning, Chem-Dry employs a process with millions of tiny bubbles, which work together to gently but efficiently remove dirt from the depths of the carpet. This natural method uses 80% less water than traditional steam cleaning.
