Area Rug Cleaning

Vacuuming alone won't keep your area rugs free from dirt and allergens. To keep your area rugs clean we recommend a professional rug cleaning. We steam clean area rugs using the same proprietary hot-water extraction method that we’ve been using to clean carpets for more than 70 years. This extracts dirt and allergens from deep within the fibers of your rug and removes them from your home. We achieve these results while still being gentle enough not to damage these decorative floor coverings.

    • Extend the Life of Your Area Rug Cleaning

      To keep your area rug cleaner for longer, we can apply a protector that aids in the prevention of damage from harmful dirt and spills. It even reduces static electricity.

    • Enjoy Increased Durability

      In addition to dirt and spills, our protector also defends against everyday wear and tear like foot traffic and vacuuming.

    • A Must-Have for Pets and Kids

      Area rug protection is a great idea for preserving the results of every cleaning, but we especially recommend it to hoouseholds with kids and pets.

    • Neutralize Odors from Pets, Kids and More

      From food to kids to pets, your home is filled with odors that can become trapped in the fibers of your rug. That’s why we recommend an application of our deodorizer.

    • Don't Mask Area Rug Smells. Remove Them.

      Our deodorizer acts to remove are rug odors, immediately neutralizing them at their source, rather than simply covering up the smell.

    • A Fresh Start for Your Home

      Application of our deodorizer leaves your area rug smelling fresh and clean, making your entire home feel renewed.

    • Clean Area Rugs = Clean Air

      In a home filled with hard surfaces like tile and hardwood, your area rugs are the primary filter for allergens and debris. This makes regular rug cleaning all the more important.

    • Spot Clean Area Rugs With Professional-Grade Products

      Stanley Steemer Professional Carpet and Upholstery Spot Remover quickly and effectively removes most spills and spots around the house.
