Area rugs are a beautiful and functional addition to any home decor. They add warmth, color, and texture to your space, while also serving as a protective layer to your flooring. However, just like any other household item, area rugs require regular cleaning to maintain their beauty and functionality. While you can clean your area rugs yourself, there are several reasons why you should consider getting them professionally cleaned.

At Carpet Pro Cleaners, we have the necessary equipment and over fifteen years in business, to offer our valued customers in the Raleigh/Durham area a safe and reliable cleaning option. We use specialized tools and cleaning solutions to remove dirt, dust, stains, and odors that ordinary vacuuming or spot-cleaning cannot. We also know how to handle delicate and antique rugs, ensuring that they are not damaged during the cleaning process. Secondly, professional rug cleaning services can extend the lifespan of your area rugs. Over time, dust, dirt, and debris can accumulate in the fibers of your rugs, causing them to wear out and fade faster than they should. Regular professional cleaning can help remove these particles, preventing premature wear and tear, and keeping your rugs looking new for longer. Finally, professional rug cleaning services can improve the air quality in your home. Dirty and dusty area rugs can release allergens and other harmful particles into the air, causing respiratory problems and other health issues. By hiring Carpet Pro Cleaners for your area rug cleaning, you can eliminate these particles, making your indoor air cleaner and healthier.

In summary, getting your area rugs professionally cleaned at CPC is a worthwhile investment that can help maintain their beauty and functionality, extend their lifespan, and improve your indoor air quality. So, if you are considering getting your area rugs professionally cleaned, we would love to discuss our process and schedule with you!

Rug Cleaning Options

Rug bathing, also known as immersion cleaning, is a specialized cleaning process that is used to clean area rugs of all types and materials. There is no more effective way to approach the cleaning of natural and synthetic fiber rugs. This process involves fully submerging the rug in water and using proprietary cleaning solutions and enzymatic treatments to remove dirt, stains, and other contaminants from the fibers. Here's how rug bathing works:

1. Pre-treatment: Before the rug is submerged in water, it is first pre-treated with a specialized cleaning solution. This solution helps to loosen dirt, stains, and other contaminants from the fibers of the rug. We use only products which are non-toxic and safe for use around people, pets, and the environment.

2. Submersion: The rug is then fully submerged in water. Unlike other cleaning methods that only clean the surface of the rug, immersion cleaning allows the cleaning solution to penetrate deep into the fibers of the rug, providing a more thorough cleaning.

3. Cleaning: Once the rug is submerged, the specialized cleaning solution is agitated to help loosen dirt and stains from the fibers. The rug is then gently scrubbed to remove any remaining contaminants. UV light and other specialized equipment may be utilized to treat certain kinds of staining.

4. Rinsing: After the cleaning process is complete, the rug is rinsed thoroughly to remove any remaining cleaning solution and contaminants.

5. Drying: The rug is then dried using specialized equipment to ensure that it dries evenly and quickly. This is an important step, as improper drying can cause the rug to develop mold or mildew.

6. Repeat if needed: We will sometimes repeat treatment to maximize the results we are able to get!

Overall, rug bathing is a safe and effective way to clean area rugs. It provides a more thorough cleaning than other methods and can help extend the life of your rugs by removing dirt and other contaminants that can cause fibers to break down over time, not to mention risks to your health.

When it comes to keeping your home clean and inviting, it's important not to overlook your area rugs. These decorative floor coverings can add warmth and style to any room, but they can also trap dirt, allergens, and other unwanted debris over time. That's why it's important to invest in regular area rug cleaning to keep them looking and feeling their best. One popular method of area rug cleaning is on-site cleaning, which involves bringing in professional cleaners to clean your rugs right in your home. This can be a convenient option for those who don't want to go through the hassle of removing and transporting their rugs to a separate location, and waiting for their return.

Our On-site cleaning method involves solution treatment and agitation, followed by a deep cleaning with specialized equipment and cleaning solutions. These products have been selected for use on many specialty fibers including polyester, synthetics, Cotton blends, viscose blends, and wool.

The drying time varies depending on the soil level, thickness and materials the rugs are composed of. Our goal is to get the rugs as dry as possible at the completion of the job and remember, air circulation is key in expediting the drying process.

There are some kinds of rugs including but not limited to (100% Viscose, Silk, Jute, or Sisal), which cannot be safely steam cleaned at home. This could result in discoloration of warping for these rugs. We recommend an off site (pick up and delivered) cleaning, so the appropriate time, products and methods can be used.
