Area Rug Cleaning

A quick online search may bring up about a thousand and one different ways to clean your area rug, but when all is said and done, we know that it is easier, safer, and cleaner to leave it to a professional service like Apogee Carpet Cleaners.


Area rugs can be a tricky type of flooring to get really and truly clean. They are often placed in high-traffic areas of your home and seem remarkably able to hold onto far more dirt, dust, and grime than their relatively small size should allow. While there has been an increase in sure area rugs that can simply be thrown in the washing machine, our team at Apogee Carpet Cleaning of Fredericksburg, Virginia, is here to tackle the cleaning of more traditional area rugs. We won't get into the details here, but those washing machine area rugs don't have the charm and homely feeling you can get with a nice old-school area rug. That is why our skilled and professional team is ready, willing, and able to tackle even the oldest and dirtiest of area rugs to get them looking like new again.


We know there are probably many of you who are thinking, "It is just a rug. Why can't I just vacuum it and move on? Maybe follow up with a rental steam cleaner from the grocery store?" Well, that is not precisely how that area rug cleaning works. Depending on the type of area rug you have, its location and age, vacuuming and simple steam cleaning will either be insufficient or may end up in irreversible damage to your carpet.


Since area rugs are typically placed in high-traffic areas of the house, like in the entryway, hallway or living room, they are more prone to heavy wear or spills than other floor areas in your home. Take, for instance, the rug at your home entrance; think about everywhere your shoes walk throughout the day or your children's muddy boots as they go trekking into the house. Even if you vacuum regularly, particles of dirt, dust and grime are bound to be so far ground into the rug's fibers that vacuuming alone will not pull them out. The following vacuuming with a DIY steam cleaning of the carpet may improve the situation, but you will also run the risk of having the colors run or damaging the rug's fibres. This may be particularly true when dealing with antique, Persian, or Oriental rugs, making an error in cleaning a pricy mistake.


So, without further ado, here are a few reasons why you should consider having your area rugs professionally cleaned by Apogee Carpet Cleaning:


  • It extends the life of your rug

Over time the dirt and grime that accumulates in the fibres of your rug can cause it to become compromised. This means that your carpet will start to look old, tattered, or threadbare before its time. By having your area rugs professionally cleaned, you can lift out all the tiny particles that cause so much damage. This will ultimately prolong or extend the rug's life for years.


  • The colors will remain fresh

When you attempt to deep clean a rug, you risk having the colors run or bleed into each other. This will give your rug a shabby or withered look. Our professional cleaners always use the appropriate methods to ensure that the colors remain where they should and keep looking their brightest.


  • No harsh chemicals

At Apogee Carpet Cleaning, we know that pets and children, or even confident adults, will be getting up close and personal with your area rugs; this is why we don't use harsh chemicals in your area rug cleaning process. We use mineral-based solutions that are safe for your carpet and your family.


  • It is the affordable choice

Many area rugs are far from a cheap purchase. Therefore, you should protect your investment by having your area rug professionally cleaned. A regular professional cleaning will undoubtedly be more affordable than replacing your rug from a lack of care and cleaning. Besides, with our 100% satisfaction guarantee, you'll surely be happy with our work.
