Warmth, Style, Color, Beauty

rug cleaningFrom expensive art treasures to practical area rugs, Steamatic knows every rug is unique and valuable. Some antique textiles can even last up to 150 years with proper care. Vacuuming and rotation are important maintenance steps, but over time dirt, soil, and detergents used for spot cleaning break down and damage rug fibers. All rugs need a professional rug cleaning to protect and restore their beauty, and that’s where the Steamatic team comes in!

Cleaning Rugs From Around the World

We have the experience and knowledge for cleaning all types of rugs, from heirloom wool and silk to durable nylon and Olefin. We frequently clean synthetic rugs in your home with the same powerful steam and extraction cleaning process used on carpets. Natural fiber rugs, such as Oriental and Navajo, present unique cleaning requirements, so we clean them safely in our Oriental rug facility.

Tailored Rug Cleaning

After a comprehensive inspection, a trained rug expert will customize a cleaning process that’s right for your individual rug depending on its fiber content, dye, construction, and condition. We take care evaluating these important rug characteristics when creating a detailed approach for a deep clean. Let’s have a look at one of our rug cleaning methods.

Submersion: Our Most Powerful Rug Cleaning Method

  1. Your rug is inspected, photographed, and tested for colorfastness. A thorough vacuuming is performed on both sides of the rug.
  2. The rug is then badgered (a modern version of rug beating) on both sides, loosening and removing insoluble solids that are deep within the rug. It is vacuumed again.
  3. Every rug is precondition with a soil suspender (approved by WoolSafe) to minimize settling and redepositing of dirt.
  4. The rug is submersed in 3 to 4 inches of water and softly scrubbed, front and back, and top to bottom.
  5. After the soft agitation, the rug is rinsed with a special water jet wand designed to flush and remove trapped soils and detergents.
  6. Once rinsed, the rug is extracted and excess moisture is removed using a weighted head extractor.
  7. Each rug is hung in a controlled environment designed to provide air movement from both top and bottom for a quick, complete dry.
